Publisher's Summary

At first glance, Lee might seem like an average 15 year old, shooting the breeze with his friends around a campfire, crushing on his friend Dana, sassing the assistant principal at school. But Lee has a little bit more responsibility than your average kid: he's the next Alien Hunter, bequeathed with the List of hidden alien outlaws living and lurking on Earth in disguise. All must be destroyed in order to protect the human race from eventual takeover.

It's a big job for one teenager. His father had the title of Alien Hunter until number-one on the List, The Prayer, killed him and Lee's mother in cold blood. Lee was just three. Ever since then, his supreme abilities - like being able to change shape and conjure up his long-dead parents out of thin-air - have gotten him through life, not to mention countless battles with aliens that roam Earth, hunting humans as part of an inter-planetary game.

Next on the list is number-six, Ergent Seth, alternately a horribly crude, grotesque horse-headed creature and a pretentious Hollywood film director/producer. Lee's quest to search and destroy number-six leads him right into the arms of super-cute Sarah Wilson - and a deadly trap that takes him to Ergent Seth's spacecraft. It's heading for a place beyond Lee's comprehension: his home planet.

For Lee is an alien too, after all. And it turns out that Earth, his adopted home, isn't the only planet that needs to be saved.

James Patterson's exciting new series is full of high wish-fulfillment fantasy, humor, and of course, all of the suspense that Patterson fans have come to expect - only this time, it's literally out of this world.

    "Great production!"

    Great dramatic production! Much more than simply someone reading a book to you. My 10 year- old boy (Daniel) also loved it!

    "Underated, and very amusing"

    I think this book is underrated and not at all so bad as some reviewers seem to think. Took some time to get into it, but then it was exciting and quite an funny book, and I actually didnt like the MiB movies, but as a book it works.

    Very good narration!

    "Made an Impression on a Hard Sell"
    What did you love best about The Dangerous Days of Daniel X?

    I am a special education teacher - I purchased Daniel X for a student on the recommendation of a friend. This kido absolutely LOVED the Percy Jackson series and had a hard time finding something else to read when he had exhausted that series and the related books. If it wasn't Greek Mythology, he didn't want any part of it. I convinced him to at least give this book a try. We both started listening in our own time, but when he got ahead of me he started fussing that I needed to hurry and get caught up as it was so good. Then he would mention a little tidbit to get me to want to finish. To see him so excited about a book with a completely different theme was awesome. As for myself, I still am not completely finished with the book, but I enjoy the story. The science fiction/alien part of the book is cool. Kids will love it. The narrator did a great job with the narrating. I had no trouble imagining the characters and their thoughts and feelings of the situations. I don't think I have to say too much about James Patterson as an author - his other works speak for him and his skill as an author. I will be purchasing the rest of this series for my student.

    "Short but Good"

    This is a childrens type book. It is intertaining and keeps the attention. It is very well written and thought out. I like the premiss, the plot, and the flow. It sets up for more books in a series that I shall purchase. It is so short that i finished it in an afternoon so I'm not really into the charge of a whole credit, but I enjoyed the book.

    "for 13-17 years Old"

    I was somewhat disappointed by this book. If I was 13-17 I might have really enjoyed the book. It's fast and quick to listen to. Less than impressive. The narrator did a good job. Choose another audiobook and wait for this one to go on sale.

    "For Kids Only"

    What a disappointment! Not at all what I expected from the author. No suspense, no real plot, just gimmicks. Appears to be more appropriate for the teen set.
