Once again James Patterson tricks me into thinking he's a competent author. The book fools you into thinking he understands that scope comes not just from the literal scale of events but by the direction you take them. Having Daniel lose his powers and making the villain toy with him is the pinnacle of all the great concepts this series butchers to horrible gory death. But with everything so poorly established its hard to convince yourself this book is any better.

Not the best in the series, that's for sure. This seams to have happened with all the young adult series James Patterson has written. Max Ride was good to start with and then just went wonky. Witch and Wizard was good till book 4 and then same thing.

So, basicly Daniel runs, gets captured, fights, runs gets captured, spends some time with creatures of the light, fights and wins.

Daniel has become full of himself ever since about book 4. Its rather obnoxious really. And the ending? J

I chose this book because I read the rest of the series and it was great maybe a little repetitive but it was good. I finally got to see the moment I was waiting for the whole series and was Daniel fighting the prayer. The prayer killed Daniels parents when he was three years old so he went his life without parents. The book was a pretty good book especially we got to his friends during the final battle which wasn't really in the other books. I felt like it should've been the other way around be ...more

The thrilling conclusion to the Daniel X series, Lights Out is the book that the series has been leading up to. Daniel will face off with his greatest adversary, The Prayer, in order to fulfill his duty, and more importantly, his revenge. Will his powers of creation be enough to defeat The Prayer, or will Daniel fall into his trap? The battle for Earth is at its end, and let’s hope Daniel comes out victorious.

This entry to the series was definitely not my favorite. First off, Patterson took age

I thought that Patterson is getting lazy. I think that the only reason he wrote this book is to get money. Otherwise, then it I thought it was lame. The only book that I liked in this series was the fourth one wich was called Game over. The reason I liked that book because it had a good story and. The only reason that was good because it was based on a graphic novel so Patterson had a good amount or research to use. The thing about this book and others is that it seems to repeat itself a lot.

Although I was somewhat forced by my mom to read this book, I fairly enjoyed it. The book wasn’t slow, there was lots of different people to hear from, and the ending of the book was amazing. To begin, I enjoyed the book because the chapters were short, and it felt like the topic was changing quickly, which I really liked. It made it seem less boring at the beginning and it was much quicker than other books at the start. Furthermore, I loved how the author incorporated many different people int ...more
Three years we've had to wait for the conclusion to Daniel X, and I think it's safe to say that wait was too long. Although the book was wild and action-packed and pulled no punches, so it's almost worth it. I was at least glad I was able to remember just about everything necessary from the previous books, even though I haven't picked one up in a few years now.

I think the best part of the book for me was the numerous Night At The Museum references. Not only for the part where Daniel and his frie

Unfortunately this book was not as good as the others in the series. It lacked a good ending and the action packed sequences that are so commonly associated with James Patterson are unoriginal and repetitive. Considering the time I have been waiting for this book to be released, I found the book quite disappointing and unsatisfying. Don't get me wrong it's still a good book but it's just the same as all the others. It was meant to be the finale, leaving you exhausted and happy. It didn't have th ...more

This 272 page book written by James Patterson is based on a fictional teenager with super natural powers. His name i Daniel and his goal is to rid our world of aliens. I think that this book i very good, but to really understand what the character is referring to you had to have read a book or to in the series before reading this book. This is because he has many powers that in this book it goes i depth with those powers. I would only recommend book to some one that has read a book or two in the ...more

"How do you think it happened Yugi Danny Boy".

All the Most advanced technology in the world(Universe) and he uses an Iphone... really?

Remember the family guy episode, with the giant cockroach rubbing it's hands together, saying "Good Good"? Well this Praying Mantis also enjoys rubbing it's scythes together.

I cheated halfway through this book, and randomly skipped chapters till I reached the end.

1/5 Stars

I definitely enjoyed reading this series, however my interest began to wane as the books continued. Lights Out was a fun and quick adventure story. Great if you have nothing better to read, but I was not overly impressed. The logic was often extremely shaky (and yes, it is a children's book, so I do give a bit of leeway, but still) and the ending was very vague and anticlimactic. I would recommend Maximum Ride over this.

Overall the storyline was as good as the previous books in this series, although it appears this may be the last book in this series based on the ending.
When it comes to Audiobooks, the narrator can truly make or break a book as was the case with this one. Milo Ventimiglia narrated the previous 5 books in this series, so for me, he was 'Daniel X', so listening to a different narrator read this book, it took a little bit away for me.

So I finished this book within four hours. What can I say? I've been waiting for almost three years. I almost thought the moment I've been waiting for was anti-climactic, and too easy. But of course, I was waiting for the catch. And I gotta say, not bad! I'm very happy with the way it ended. I don't think it could've ended any other way. I think what sold for me was the mind games. In my opinion, those are always the toughest battles to overcome. Satisfying ending for me.

I had no idea that book 6 had come out. What a great surprise. Daniel is still on the hunt for #1, the worst alien on his list. His family was killed when he was little, and ever since then it has been his mission to kill the monster that killed his parents. This is probably my fave Patterson series.
Jan 02, 2015 rated it liked it
I liked this book enough, my problem was that the fight with #1 seemed anti-climatic. Daniel keeps being reminded to have a back up plan and the end he didn't have one and his dad did everything. The first part was just a rehash of everything we knew, the second part was #1 playing games on Daniel. I did enjoy Xanthos and mikaela. Willy, Joe, Emma, and Dana were fun as always.

A really great finally. I loved this series, but I'm glad to finally finish it. It took me about2hrs to read the last 130 pages, which is probably the fastest I've ever read, so this is really fast-paced, fun and amazing.

I have to say first, I am a big James Patterson fan....and this book was not a disappointment.... Daniel X draws you into his life...easy read and holds your interest....reminds us of many different lessons about life.....worth a read!

GREAT installment in the Daniel X series. Loved the way Patterson moved Daniel around in this book. Looking forward to the next book

I had to finish the series. It was okay in parts but for the most part Patterson's/Grabenstein's style of writing is so cheesy I couldn't stand it.

It's been a long time since I spent time with Daniel X....I forgot how much I liked him. I'm glad I got to read the end of his story and I hope he finds that happiness.
