Overview

The Glyph Saga: Book One: A Great Escape by D. K. N. Yuko

Following a series of bizarre weapon-testing accidents, the landmasses, languages, cultures, and political structures of Earth have drastically changed. One-third of the population, which consists of Androids, Holograms, Homo sapiens, and Homo radians, have been blessed (or cursed) with supernatural abilities, thanks to Alien intervention. Split into three warring Regions, the tightly-knit World Leaders have closets brimming with skeletons. Welcome to Ecliptic Earth, S.F.
The Glyph Saga: Book One, A Great Escape, is the first installment of this seven-book series. Set in the year 2098 S.F., this book centers on the activities in the super region Panga Uno Animo. The PUA is an opulent, yet grueling, oligarchy with a fierce loathing of nature. The time has come for the Elder Dictators to initiate their highly-trained children as future Leaders, with a lifelong commitment of absolute corruption and terror.
However, a few of these Chosen Ones have had their fill of the despotism and autocracy in their dystopian home, and decide to make a break for it using their unique superpowers to their advantage. It is up to these deserter offspring, with mysterious assistance from a remnant rebel, to escape the force field-protected gates of pretty oppression and attempt to usher in a new era of world peace and prosperity. Not, of course, without the obstructions of forbidden knowledge, lust, alien invasion, betrayal, loss, rejection, personal growth, and Life Form Warfare.

About the Author

There are few African-Americans or women in the Social Science Fiction, Occult Fiction, Fantasy, and Dark Comedy genres. However, they have been a passion of DaKarai Noshell Yuko's forever. She has an affinity for writing multicultural stories with flawed characters and strong female leads, as well as progressive poetry.

D. K. N. Yuko put together The Dakaverse, a dark-yet-hilarious compilation of many of her stories and projects. The Dakaverse is a rich, fully-connected universe filled with eccentric and exciting characters, whose stories overlap. The stories take place in four fictional cities: Plumesworthe, Ponderer's Point, Pensburg, and Tellurium Ridge. Each area has its inherently distinct social climate, which affects the story and the characters from that city. Many of the titles are available in graphic novel form. Yuko also incorporates Veclage Art in many of her graphic novels and book covers. Veclage Art is an expressive art form created by using layered and textured collages of vector clip art.
