      In the first book, The Adventure, Devon Shoemaker is a twelve year-old boy who is recruited to become part of an alien exploratory team. His situation is one of a child that feels inadequate. He is failing in school, and his stepfather abuses him. When he reaches his limit and can stand no more he decides that he will end his existence. Instead he meets Elias, an alien, and is convinced that he should go away from this world. He leaves the Earth. He feels that his mother will have a better life and a chance at happiness when he is gone. He is convinced that he will be allowing her to experience true happiness. Ten years pass, before he returns to see if his absence improved his mother's situation. This story chronicles what adventures and changes have happened between the time he left, and the time he returned. It explains his abilities, and his strength of character that made him the confident officer that he became. Please read and enjoy the Ten Years.
