The Genome Rally (Sic Transit Terra Book 4)
The most dangerous race in the galaxy is the race against time.
And the second most dangerous race? The Galactic Great Council believes it’s the Humans. However, as the captain and officers of the Earth ship Marco Polo are about to find out, Humanity has plenty of competition for that title.
While visiting Kula’as, Captain Takamura and his crew are recruited by aliens for a covert mission. The Thryggians may be close to breaking out of their pocket universe using a psi-powered heavy ship left over from an ancient war. If they succeed in activating the ship, they’ll be unstoppable. Can a bickering bunch of Humans and aliens work together to find and steal the vessel before it is too late?
About the Author:
Born and raised in Toronto, Arlene F. Marks began writing stories at the age of 6 and can't seem to stop.

Lovecraft’s Magazine of Horror, Onder Magazine, and Daily Science Fiction. Her science fantasy novel, The Accidental God, was nominated for the 2015 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour. Arlene lives with her husband on Nottawasaga Bay but spends an inordinate amount of time in the Sic Transit Terra universe. [MORE]
"Picking up where the third book in the series left off, The Genome Rally introduces more mystery, more secrets and more hidden agendas. Every major character has a mask they present to the world and a true identity that remains hidden. It is a duplicitous universe of constant fencing, where motives remain hidden, and where no one and nothing can be taken at face value. ... Readers who enjoy The Expanse will like the Sic Transit Terra series." - Ken Haigh, CEO of the Collingwood Public Library
"I started to read it on a flight to Cuba and after registering at my resort, had to force myself to put it down at one thirty in the morning." - Dave Penney
"As always, Marks does a fantastic job of painting the scenery in her book, which makes it very easy to visualize everything that happens within its pages." - Chris Marks
