At first glance, Lee might seem like an average fifteenyear old, shooting the breeze with his friends around a campfire, crushing onhis friend Dana, sassing the assistant principal at school, but Lee has alittle bit more responsibility than your average kid: he’s the next AlienHunter, bequeathed with the List of hidden alien outlaws living and lurking onEarth in disguise. All must be destroyed in order to protect the human racefrom eventual takeover. That’s a big job for one teenager.  Lee’s father had the title of Alien Hunter until number oneon the List, The Prayer, killed him and Lee’s mother in cold blood. Lee wasjust three. Ever since, his supreme abilities—being able to change shape andconjure up his long-dead parents out of thin-air—have gotten him through life,not to mention countless battles with aliens that roam the Earth. Next on the list is number six, Ergent Seth—a crude,grotesque creature and a pretentious Hollywood film director/producer. Lee’squest to search out and destroy number-six leads him right into the arms ofsuper-cute Sarah Wilson—and a deadly trap that takes him to Ergent Seth’sspacecraft. It’s heading for a place beyond Lee’s comprehension: his homeplanet. And it turns out that Earth, Lee’s adopted home, isn’t the only planetthat needs to be saved. James Patterson’s exciting new series is full of highwish-fulfillment fantasy, humor, and of course, all of the suspense that Pattersonfans have come to expect. Only this time, it’s literally out of this world.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

They could not have done better than Milo Ventimiglia as the narrator. Audiofile
“Patterson jumps on the superheroes bandwagon with contributor Ledwidge and delivers the adventures of Daniel X, a superpowered alien whose mission is to defend Earth from more malignant, threatening aliens…The production is sparsely sprinkled with sound effects, which work quite well and add to the story…Milo Ventimiglia makes it worth the listen. His timing and inflection match perfectly with Daniel, the first-person protagonist. He sounds youthful enough to be believable as Daniel and easily transitions to other character voices within the story.” Publishers Weekly audio review
They could not have done better than Milo Ventimiglia as the narrator. Audiofile
“Moving at a furious speed, Patterson and Gout deliver an action-packed, sci-fi thrill ride perfectly suited to a young male readership.” Booklist
“Meet Daniel, whose role as the Alien Hunter is to protect Earth. Patterson says it’s the best story he’s ever written.” Library Journal
“They could not have done better than Milo Ventimiglia as the narrator.” AudioFile
“The action-packed story line, kinetic computer-generated art, and Patterson’s name are sure to attract readers.” School Library Journal
