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.

An inside the park homer for conspiracy theorists!
The performance by Stefan Rudnicki, who is rapidly turning into one of my favourite performers. He takes a longish, and multi character filled book to the next, and wonderful, level.
Accents, genders, nuances, all are illustrated brightly with his voice. This is a moderately compelling story that he brings alive.
Gosh, an apocalyptic/conspiracy/hero saves the day story would match this, but the spin of the Airwars , and the ( OK no spoiler here ) others...spins this uniquely.
Is it fair to say ALL OF IT?! He is remarkable in this book and makes it well worth the credit alone.
Too long, and why do that? Stretch it out and enjoy it!
I started out abit skeptical of this book, and it just kept getting better and better all the time. The conclusion seems abit rushed, and maybe somewhat contrived at the very end, but on balance, the journey of how the listener gets there makes it worthwhile.
Engaging story, but weak plot
