Daniel X has his work cut out for him. A teenage alien hunter, he has a deadly list of evil predators to eliminate and while he's made it all look easy so far, much darker days await him. Next on his list is Number Five, an unsightly and terrifying alien who is watching Daniel as intently as Daniel has been tracking him. Number Five kills for thrills but not just for his own. He is operating a sinister entertainment network and innocent people are unknowingly the stars of the show. But while Number Five may have managed to brainwash the public, is he cunning enough to outwit the alien hunter? As the two seek to destroy one another, who will be the ultimate winner? And will Daniel X live to see who is next on his list?

  • If you have read the previouse book, Dangerous Days of Daniel X, then you already know all about Daniel himself. In Watch the Skies Daniel is once again saving Terra Firma from the clutches of evil alien tenticules. This time he is going after #5 on the List. And #5 isn't a walk in the park. #5 is a master at anythign electronic and uses his power to basically take over the town of Holliswood. All the Women of the town are 'pregnant' with his offspring, or rather clones. He has nursery ponds on a farm that were dug out and filled with water by the towns people. Anyways though, Daniel meets #21 on the List as well while in the supermarket. And gets his butt kicked from surprise. #21 leaves him however on orders from #5. Later on in the story Daniel gets revenge on #21 and then some. When #5 finally figures this out he is seriously angered. Apparently even thoguth he treated #21 like crap they were friends. But with all of #5's electrical power, enough to run the NYC for a decade, Daniel and the gang were no match for him. With #5's camera's rolling, recording the entire battle, Daniel willingly goes up to give slimy, catfishy, swampy #5 a hug. Why you ask? #5 wanted a touching effect for his video, Daniel convinced him by wanting to get a closer look at his dad's necklace wrapped around #5's neck. Daniel had his mothers, or so #5 told him. using the hug as his last chance Daniel holds both necklaces up to the sky which is like a strom form a horror story. The SILVER necklaces attract the lighting so well that #5 is practically crispy immediatly. Dont' worry, Daniel surrvives it. After destroying #5's body, the gang confiscates all electronics in Holliswood to free the town's people from #5 and completely destroy him.
