Review: Daniel X: Watch the Skies by James Patterson and Ned Rust

All's quiet in the small town of Holliswood, the television sets a-glow in every home. But not all is as perfect as it seems.

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.

Received from the publisher for review.

After listening to the first Daniel X book I didn't have high hopes for this one. The story was good for a teenage boy (presumably the target audience), but I just wasn't feeling it.

The reader, Milo Ventimiglia (Jess from Gilmore Girls, and more recently a member of the Heroes cast), did a very good job with the material. He also read the first Daniel X book, so it was nice to have the continuity and hear him read this one as well.

This one gets six stars. Despite the reader's performance the book didn't do a whole lot for me. It was a nice, short length though.

Rating: ★★★★★☆☆☆☆
