The Dangerous Days of Daniel X - James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge

Premise - from Wikipedia - Daniel X works alone. Having watched from the shadows as the brutal murder of his own parents unfolded before him, he has been forced to make his own way in a dark and unforgiving world with a heavy task handed to him. Daniel's parents were alien hunters, working his way through a fearsome 'wanted' list of aliens intent on seeking control and wreaking devastation with his four best friends who he has"created with his mind and powers. But as he planned his next target, his own time was running out. Following his parents' sudden deaths, Daniel faced an uncertain future: he knew little about his family nor where he came from but a few things were clear, he had inherited the list from his parents and a unique ability to create anything that he needs including some very devoted friends to help him along the way. His life has become dedicated to the mission. Every day has been transformed into a terrifying hunt, watching each step he takes for danger awaits around every corner and lurks within the shadows. His ultimate aim is to exact revenge against number 1 on his list: his parents' murderer. But first he must target the others: each more sinister and gruesome than the last.

This is another teen series from James Patterson. I grew very fond of the Maximum Ride series, so I was hoping I would like this one as well, but I didn't. The plus was it was entertaining, easy read for me today since I'm sick.

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy this book all that much. This is one series or genre of James Patterson's that I've not been drawn to read.

Hope you're feeling better soon.
