Book Review: Daniel X -- Watch the Skies

Something new for me! A while back I joined the MotherTalk network, and was recently asked to review Daniel X - Watch the Skies by James Patterson & Ned Rust.

I have to say that action/alien adventures are not usually my first pick in leisure reading - but this book is fun! It is geared for teen boys that haven't found a book to hold their interest - and I imagine it would. Written in the first person you get a sense that you are there with the characters and in on the secret. Who doesn't love to be in "the know?"

Young Daniel is himself an alien and busy fighting his nemesis, Number 5, in a sleepy US town. Daniel is likable and surrounds himself with his materialized, imaginary friends, to help outsmart Number 5. While Number 5 is busy recording reality tv shows, and interfering with normal life. The book is very imaginative and full of adventure!

In the end, this is a fun book and quick read! I would like to giveaway my copy - just leave a comment and I will select a winner Tuesday evening :)

My 14 year old son is an avid reader but not come across this one. Always good to find a different author for him to try
