A terrifying outlaw has just arrived in town, with the goal of throwing it into chaos--and filming the pandemonium for the fellas back home. Only one person can stop him and his thugs from destroying the city and everyone living there. Daniel X assembles an all-star team of his own creation, but not even he could imagine the enormity of this made-for-TV- villain's powers.
Daniel X lost his family at the age of three at the hands of "Number Five"- one of the top aliens residing not so subtly on Earth. His mission as an alien hunter-though he is alien himself- is to cross them off the list. one by one, until he has destroyed them all.
Sounds easy enough, right? Wrong. Number five is taking over the town of Hollingsworth, melting human and animal alike, using the female population to breed his catfish-like alien spawn. The clock is ticking for the small town with only days left to spare. Just when you think Daniel can't possibly get out of his very sticky situation, he pulls another super power from his alien repartoire. My personal favorite? Turning alien oozies into super-soakers. With his "dream" team, Dana, Emma, Joe, and Will, not to mention his conjured family aiding him, surely the town of Hollingsworth and Earth can be saved. Or can it?
Daniel X: Watch the Skies is a fun, fast paced story guaranteed to thrill young and old alike, though I would classify it in the young adult category. Captivatingly written, Daniel X, has me looking forward to the sequel Demons and Druids-which you are given a sneak peek. Mr. Ventimiglia lends attitude and instant likability to all the roles he voices, but most of all to Daniel. This one goes in the collection.
