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.

Review:

The Immune is a FINALIST in the ForeWord Book of the Year Awards in the category of Science Fiction!

"The task of protecting humanity is not easily done. The Immune follows the crisis of humanity as biological weapons threaten them. A few humans are immune to the stings of the biowars, being chosen as defenders against them. But even when the fate of the species lies on their shoulders, pettiness and politics strike out in force. The Immune is a riveting read of science fiction, highly recommended." --Midwest Book Review

"It just might be the sleeper hit of the year." --Speculative Book Review

"If I had my way, The Immune would be taught in political science and literature classes next to allusion filled classics like Animal Farm and Lord of the Flies." --Lytherus.com

"Welcome to the world of The Immune, a fascinating near-future adventure novel by Doc Lucky Meisenheimer. Taking one part H.G. Wells, several bits of Robert Heinlein, and a few echoes of Orwell, Huxley, and other dystopian visionaries, he's created an allegory and a stunning page-turner in the process." --The Rational Review

"This is truly a wonderful first novel for Doc Lucky Meisenheimer. The Immune succeeds on several levels. It works equally as a beach book page turner, and as an intellectual pursuit of individual liberty." --Liberty Maven

"This work of science fiction is both entertaining and thought-provoking. There is a lot of action throughout the story that is presented in great detail. Some of the scenes that feature The Immune fighting the airwars are difficult to picture in my head, but I think they would be exciting to see on a movie screen. There is something in this book for every reader. In addition to humor and drama, there is the political issue of how to contain mass hysteria without denying basic human freedoms. The author includes several twists in the plot which ultimately lead to an unexpected, yet gratifying, climax." --Reader Views
