With supreme abilities, like being able to shape-shift and move objects with his mind, Daniel is strong enough to take on anything in the world. It's the things from beyond this planet that are the real problem. Daniel possesses a coverted List--that belonged to his father, before he was brutally murdered--targeting intergalactic criminals preying on the human race. Now, Daniel vows to take on his father's dangerous mission as the Alien Hunter. In the first book of the series, Daniel must conquer the deadly Ergent Seth. The fate of the world rests on Daniel X, and he will have his revenge, whatever the cost.

The Dangerous Days of Daniel X is a very unique story. I could never predict what was going to happen next because the possibilities were endless. While reading it I was constantly being fooled by plot twists. It was a fun and interesting book to read. I only have a couple of complaints. In my opinion i love getting to know a lot of characters, and here there wasn't. Daniel is the only important character, and you don't even get a lot of detail with him. The ending though did redeem these character flaws. I loved the book began with Daniel turning into a tick to save himself and he does it again in the end to save himself and tons of other people. At first Daniel seemed like a very self righteous person, very cocky. But you do realize that he IS afraid and loving. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed The Dangerous Days of Daniel X, and can't wait to read more about him!

I didn't know James Patterson wrote YA books until just a few months ago. The book series looks pretty good but I don't like how readers don't know much about the author.

Great review!

If I saw this book at the library, I probably would just think nothing of it. Now, it sounds pretty cool. But I'm still looking forward to more of those books you won from Brook Taylor.

Happy Thanksgiving Mandaroo. I'll probably call you or something.
