James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 300 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.
Patterson has combined breakneck pacing and dark tones for years now, elements that happen to be the lifeblood of graphic novels. Alien Hunter follows an orphaned alien boy who has inherited his father’s legacy as a hunter of evil aliens on the planet Earth. An alien himself, tough-talking and self-assured Daniel has superior speed and strength, and he can give form to things and people just by thinking about them, including imaginary friends and long-lost family members. It’s a lonely existence, but when Daniel comes up against Number 7, a most unusual criminal mastermind, the young hunter finds that the villain’s own son may prove to be more than just a tool to use against his enemy. The flexible figures and exaggerated expressions that feature in Lyngeled and Girin’s artwork help mitigate the dark tone of the story. Casting off any pretense at realism and moving at a furious speed (the second half is one huge extended fight sequence), Patterson and Gout deliver an action-packed, sci-fi thrill ride perfectly suited to a young male readership. Grades 5-8. --Jesse Karp
