Uncovered (45): Alien In The House

Hello again! This week on Uncovered, I have the newly revealed cover to the seventh installment in Gini Koch's Alien series, Alien In The House. Like all the covers in the series, this one is by the talented Dan Dos Santos. He also does the covers to the popular Mercy Thompson series and is definitely one of my favorite cover artists.

I love this cover because, well, it looks like an awesomely fun book. I really like the unique layout with the images set in the rifle sights. It's dynamic but not confusing. The main female figure looks pretty badass as well. I am also really curious about what those two little creatures in the right bottom corner are. They look like demonic hedgehogs. 

I actually have not started this series yet (perhaps another one to add to my Start The Series Challenge) but I really want to. Has anyone read this series yet? Are the aliens awesome and what exactly are those alien hedgehogs? :)

  1. I LOVE this series - and its author. I've exchanged a few emails with her and she's as awesome as her main character. I don't normally read sci-fi, but the cover of the first book really caught my attention. I picked it up and put it down [because it was sci-fi] every time I went to the bookstore for several months before caving to the hilarious-sounding back cover of the first book; I was NOT disappointed. This series is fun, intelligent, and hilarious! You should definitely check it out. The main female character - Katherine "Kitty" Katt - is one of my top 3 favorite fiction characters. She's a blunt-instrument, much like I am, and I love her sense of humour =)

    1. hi amanda! so glad to hear that you enjoyed this series. i am huge on aliens most of the time either but i always pick this up when i go to the bookstore. luckily i do have a copy of book 1 at home already just waiting for me to start it. i love smart, funny characters and i have a feeling that kitty is going to be great.
