The Dangerous Days of Daniel X 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.
