Format: Hardcover
With DEMONS AND DRUIDS, James Patterson and Adam Sadler take the Daniel X series to an entirely new level.

Daniel X is an extraterrestrial who had been living with his family on earth. When his parents and sister were killed in a sneak attack by intergalactic criminals, Daniel made it his mission to wipe them all out. He is a fairly powerful guy who is still testing the extent and limits of his powers. He is able to travel in time, conjure up friends from his home planet, and occasionally and randomly experiences visits from his family, even though they no longer exist. It was Daniel's father who gave him a list of criminals who needed extermination the most, and while Daniel has not been following along in numerical order, he has been doing a good job of systematically whittling down the number.

Daniel's primary target in DEMONS AND DRUIDS is Phosphorius Beta, his strongest foe to date. Beta is a demon of fire --- one of the most basic of elements, and arguably the most dangerous --- and, worse, he comes with an army of similarly powered henchmen who are loaded with bad attitude. Beta is not a late arrival to Earth, either; he has been here for over a thousand years, biding his time while increasing his strength. Daniel soon discovers that the only way to defeat this enemy is to go back in time, to Europe's Dark Ages, and confront Beta before he has a chance to become so powerful.

Daniel has some interesting and unexpected allies in his quest. One of them, surprisingly, is his father, who puts him through a bit of criminal-elimination training, where Daniel learns there is much more to the job than he originally imagined. His other allies? Well, let's not spoil the surprise.

This thriller will grab you and not let go. It's a rocket ride of a book with unrelenting pace and exotic imagination. Daniel's powers makes him super human, yet he's a vulnerable character - without parents or permanent friends. Daniel outwit villains, hunt aliens and gives us a peek at London through teenage eyes. I read the novel in one sitting - zooming through the prose on my Kindle.

I have followed the series of Daniel X and his hunt to eliminate each and every intergalactic criminal on Earth. The pace of these Daniel X stories is always fast and relentless. In this book the Number Three on the List of Alien Outlaws takes the form of raging, soul--possessing fire. And fire transports Daniel back to the most traumatic event of his life: the death of his parents.Also his best friends are in danger. The only way to save them is to travel back--through a hole in time to the demon's arrival during the Dark Ages.
This is a true time-travelling sci-fi action book!

I really enjoyed this one. It's typical that Daniel get himself in a situation that is difficult, but in this one he seems to have feeling a typical teenager would have. We know he is going to defeat the aliens, but to walk back with Merlin and to protect the girl he loves (even though she isn't real) brings a new aspect to the challenge.

I really love this Daniel Z series. It's so different from the other books Patterson writes. I enjoy the surprises along the way of reading these books too. The whole "how will he get out of this situation now" scenarios, and how he does just keeps me interested, and turning the next page.

I bought 40 books to complete my collection by S. Cannell, M. Connelly, J. Patterson, & J. Wambaugh. I haven't read all of them yet, but these guys have never disappointed, and I don't think that they ever will.That's why I read them.

I liked the concept of the book, but writing a literary review based on a few chapter teaser is difficult. I was not invested in the characters by the end of the preview. I was not captivated by scenery or even the action sequences. It was ok, but not spectacular. I truly hope in the full novel that character and setting development is more thorough.
