Is there life in outer space? In book 1 The Journey To Nura we see Jim and his new friends as they face that question. They agree to leave this world and go to Nura to help save a dying race. They travel in a space ship to Nura, facing new challenges as they go.
In Book 2, The Years At Nura they discover a very advanced world, that nearly died out over a small problem.
