Re-read because I got the sequel. I never realized how hard James Patterson really tries to make his character sound "young". Parts of it aren't written well at all, and unlike in Maximum Ride, most of the chapters end pointlessly. Daniel, the main character, spends half the book going on about how cool he is and how strong and how lucky and how awesome. Which may be true, he's a freaking alien hunter. But the bragging wasn't entertaining enough to take up half the story. Daniel seems incredibly cardboard, "Gorgeous", super smart, has seven zillion powers, has a sob story that's not really a sob story cuz he can see his dead friends/family whenever he wants, is incredibly fast and strong, all the girls like him, he has a crush on every female that walks his way, he tries to make his mistakes justified (Or the author justifies all his mistakes)....But the plot was interesting and surprising, the other characters were pretty cool, and the ending was epic. Rated up slightly because it gets better later in the series.
