With a meteor days away from causing an extinction-level event on Earth, time is running out for Elena Marlowe. While most of the planet's population and her family were approved by the government to escape on one of the giant spaceships headed to another planet, her application was denied due to her mysterious past. With time running out, Elena tries desperately to find a way to fake her way onto the last ship or else be left behind to die with the rest of Earth's rejected denizens.
Genghis Con is the story of guilt-ridden grifter, Alexis, who seeks
redemption for herself and justice for her sister, Abigail, by taking
part in a win or die rally race from England into the mountains of
Mongolia. Along the way, she must team up with her erstwhile lover
and fend off attacks from parties unknown, including one particularly
ruthless gangster. Meanwhile, the spirit of a mysterious Mongol
warrior haunts Alexis on her journey. Genghis Con is an unusual
story: a crime and family drama crossed with illegal international
road racing, told with humour and drive. It features a biracial
heroine and it touches on issues of racial identity, sibling rivalry,
and the weight of memory. It will appeal to adults and young adults.
