Daniel X is on an impossible mission: to eliminate every intergalactic criminal on the face of the Earth. Using his incredible superpower to create objects out of thin air, he's taken on some of the most fearsome and fiendish aliens in the universe, and now he's aiming to extinguish his next target: the explosive demon of fir, Phosphorius Beta, and his army of flame-weaving henchmen.
But it's going to take a whole new level of mojo to destroy this villain. Beta's strength has been growing since he arrived on Earth over a millennium ago, and he's finally ready to turn the blue planet into his own fiery wasteland. The only way to stop him is by jumping back in time to the Dark Ages to end Beta's blistering reign before it has a chance to begin. But can Daniel X take the heat? Or will the alien hunter finally get burned?
Since his parents' tragic murder when he was three years old, Daniel X has been forced to fend for himself. But he has a unique ability that has helped him along the way--the secret power to create objects out of thin air.
Now, twelve years after that fateful day, Daniel finds himself one step closer to bringing his parents' brutal killer to justice. Following his father's List of deadly assassins to find the culprit, Daniel has tracked another criminal across the ocean, to London. But this is no vacation. With the help of his five closest friends, Daniel will take on his most explosively powerful villain yet, and it will take all of his abilities to stay alive--including some that he doesn't yet know he possesses...
Daniel X's hunt to eliminate each and every intergalactic criminal on Earth is always relentless, but this time, it's getting personal. 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.
In the face of his "kryptonite", Daniel struggles with his extraordinary powers like never before, and more than ever is at stake: his best friends are in grave peril. The only way to save them is to travel back-through a hole in time-to the demon's arrival during the Dark Ages. Rip-roaring action and humor sets the pages afire in this gripping time-travel adventure with an Arthurian cast-and countless other surprises!
