The first book of a new young adult series by James Patterson, Daniel X is an alien hunter, taking over the project his parents started before their murder when he was young child.
I had previously read the corresponding graphic novel about Daniel X, and had a little knowledge of what the book was about, but this quick read gives some background but focuses on Daniel’s mission to bring his parents killer to justice – The Prayer.
While it we be awhile before we actually see Daniel go up against the #1 alien, Patterson shows us some of Daniel’s strength by putting him up against the #6 alien over the course of the book. It was interesting and quick to read and I look forward to continuing the series.
