A biological crisis of epic proportions threatens the world. Genetically manufactured creatures, called airwars, attack and kill at random. Despite having captured and sequestered the airwar's creator, a hastily formed world government appears to be more effective in consolidating power than in managing the crisis. Hope emerges when a navy admiral discovers there are individuals born genetically immune to the deadly stings of the creatures. As the "immunes" struggle to protect humanity, they bemoan escalating governmental control. There is, however, one key immune with the intelligence and leadership to look beyond the crisis. As the government unfolds its secret plans to end the crisis, the future of humanity may well rest on his shoulders.

I am not usally a fan of Science Fiction but this one wasn't too bad. It's a story with heavy political undertones mixed in. A fast moving story that will make you question who is right and wrong. There are twists and turns that bring you through many emotions... anger, fear, and more.
Where does government regulations end? A question you will ponder as you read Immune. I give it 3 stars.
I received an e-copy free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
