Watch the Skies (Daniel X Series #2) by James Patterson, Ned Rust

It's a dangerous time for Daniel X-and when he's cast in an evil director's TV show, he must fight to stay alive.

Daniel X thought he'd seen it all in his dangerous days of hunting outlaws-but there's no business like show business, and Number Five on his list of deadly targets is the most appalling criminal yet. An intergalactic reality television producer has orchestrated the extermination of millions, with a soundtrack and laugh track to accompany it. The evil entertainer's catching it all on film, and he's looking for a big-ticket draw. Who better to star than the Alien Hunter himself? Daniel finds himself cast in the lead role of a terrifying season premiere . . . of the gravest show on Earth.

Can Daniel X stop this deranged outlaw-or will he find himself on the cutting room floor?

The first book of this series is amazing. Danial X can relate to anyone. The romance in the book has just the right amount for anyone to love. I hope Patterson continues this series and also the Maximum Ride series. I would recommend this book to anybody.

This is a fantasy book called Watch the Skies Daniel X by James Patterson. The book was good because it was very well written and the author used good vocabulary. And it flowed very nicely and the author included a prologue which gave you a nice taste on what the story is about and an epilogue which tells you how the story slightly ends. And it had a lot of action and adventure. In the modern time town of Holliswood, Daniel fights aliens on the list that he received when he was three years after his parents were killed by a nasty alien on that list. So Daniel still sets out to find that alien that killed his parents. But along the way Daniel has help from his made up but real friends. These friends really exist but he made them up in his mind, because he has extraordinary powers that can make him do anything. But along the way Daniel has some problems with the alien hunting. First he has to find out where the aliens are hiding but it's not that hard for him. Then he has to figure out how to defeat them and then lastly he has to make sure not to get killed or let his imaginary friends die. James Patterson style is very clean. He uses good punctuation, good vocabulary and he is very precise. And also if you think you know something is going to happen, it doesn't, cause' he always changes the ending. I recommend this to everyone because anyone can read it. Whoever reads it will like it and you laugh and be amazed by the book. And I you want to know the ending, I can't tell you, you will have to read it yourself.

This book was definatly another amazing addition to James Patterson's series. The book goes into such detail that it feels like your actually daniel with all of his powers. I swear i got lost in there for awhile. The sneek peek in the back for the next book made me want it right now. but i guess i'll have to wait.

You should read the previous book in this series as this one is #2.I enjoyed the book but probably would not have if I had not read the first one in the series.A good book but not as good as the Maximum Ride books. Thanks

I know i haven't read this book yet but it doesn't sound as good as the first one. I have read all of James Patterson's Maximum Ride books and some of them twice. So when my dad got us Daniel X, I thought it would be a great book a lot like Max R. The first one was pretty good. I was hoping for just a little more romance and a more complicated plot like Harry Potter, Eragon, Eldest, and Brisinger. When I read the description or this book, it looked a little cheesy to me. But i have read a lot of books that look cheesy but are really good once you read them. So I am going to give this book a shot. Just because that 75 year old man doesn't like it, doesn't mean a 12 year old girl won't.

This book was so good! I thoroughly enjoy all of James Patterson's books, and I rated this one 5 stars! (as I do with ALL his books) If you liked this book, you'd LOVE the Maximum Ride series! (by James Pateerson, of course) I highly reccomend this book, but you would probably want to read the first one first. :)
