Happy Friday folks! Even though it was only 3 days long (for me), this has felt like a really long week. And what better way to unwind after a long week than with a bit of fun YA fantasy?
As some of you are probably aware, I’m a big fan of James Patterson’s Maximum Ride series. He also has another YA series called Daniel X. To help celebrate the upcoming release of the third volume in this series, James is offering a sneak peek at the first 25 chapters of Daniel X: Demons & Druids.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the series, here’s a bit about Daniel X from the author’s website:
HE WAS BORN WITH GREAT POWER
The greatest superpower of all isn’t to be part spider, part man, or to cast magic spells – the greatest power is the power to create. Daniel X has that power.
AND A DEADLY SECRET
Daniel’s secret abilities–like being able to manipulate objects and animals with his mind or to re-create himself in any shape he chooses–have helped him survive. But Daniel doesn’t have a normal life. He is the protector of Earth, the Alien Hunter, with a mission beyond anyone’s imagining.
NOW THE FATE OF THE WORLD RESTS ON DANIEL X
From the day that his parents were brutally murdered before his very eyes, Daniel has used his unique gifts to hunt down their assassin. Finally, with the help of The List, bequeathed to him in his parents’ dying breath, he is closing in on the killer.
Now, on his own, he vows to carry out his father’s mission–and to take vengeance in the process.
Sounds like fun right? If you still aren’t convinced, check out the excerpt which has been made available in a variety of user friendly formats:
(For those of you who are spoiler-phobes like me, worry not. This little preview sets up the world of Daniel X without giving too much away.)
