“ARKO: The Dark Union by U.W. Leo” is a fascinating new beginning to a science fiction series about a band of tweens who are on a mission to save the human race and uncover the most significant discovery in the history of mankind. This tale is an amalgamation of the helplessness and innocent ignorance of childhood with the age-old wisdom of the universe, of wonder and mystery, and the inexplicable and unfathomable abilities, as well as things that lurk around the corners of reality and seep through the cracks in the world.

It has been dormant for millions of years in the earth’s core and is ultimately responsible for the history and destiny of our globe.
The youngsters and scientists are on a dangerous journey to understand the origins and ultimate purpose of their astounding finding as quickly as possible. Even though they are being pursued by armed troops, federal agents, and other shady characters, the group must be successful since the future of the world depends on them. This narrative is both thought-provoking and realistic, based on scientific facts, and speculates about the devastation of the environment and the possibility of its survival, using elements such as thought-transmitting abilities, an ancient structure buried for millions of years, the hatching of flying pterosaurs, and futuristic technology.
