RELEASE DATE: APRIL 14, 2020.
Four years after the Corvou war, the battle for Humanity's future goes on.
Drew Townsend and his surviving crew are back in business, aboard a new and improved Daisy Hub and with a new mission, one that will cement Humanity's place among the stars — but it could take years to complete.
Earth Intelligence operatives have been sent to Stragon to protect the Terran colony there by heading off an impending civil war — but good and bad keep changing places, and appearances cannot be trusted.
And on Earth, the Reformation has had dangerous consequences for Barry Novak and Juno Vargas, as they struggle to neutralize an old enemy — but the truth isn't what they thought it was.
In the 25th century, the past is a puzzle, the present is a minefield … and the future is a mirror, wherein Earth's true identity lies.
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. Although she's been published in multiple genres, her first love has always been speculative fiction. Her work has appeared in H.P. 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]
"In her Sic Transit Terra series, Arlene F. Marks has brought us some of the most gosh-darned fun space opera to be published in years. With, of course, plenty of spaceships exploding, warfare in space, and breakneck action. THE IDENTITY SHIFT, the latest in the series, shows us—with much hilarity and even more excitement—what happens when humans try guile and deception. Characters we love to spend time with, the fate of a universe hanging in the balance…what’s not to love? - Ed Greenwood, award-winning creator of the bestselling Forgotten Realms setting
"The Identity Shift is the sixth and final book in the Sic Transit Terra series. The whole cycle is very ambitious. ... This is a massive undertaking, but the pace is quick and the dialogue is clever. Author Marks has created a richly imagined universe with numerous alien species. It’s a great journey." - Ken Haigh, CEO of Collingwood Public Library
