The Immundus

The Immundus

Beware the cure. Betray the cause.

Would you sacrifice your humanity to save mankind?

IT’S THE YEAR 2828, and Domus is the last remaining country. Divided into twelve walled cities known as genuses, Domus spans what’s known as the purist lands—lands unaffected by the genetic modifications that killed all other species of mammals. But outside the walls of each genus the Immundus threaten the welfare of those within. From a young age, all citizens of Domus are trained for combat against these intruders.


I grew up in Salinas, California, the same hometown of John Steinbeck, one of America’s greatest writers. I loved to read (and still do) and frequented the John Steinbeck Library as a child.

“In her book, Enquist . . . provides some intriguing reflections on evolution and genetic science . . . a well-paced sci-fi story with excitement, emotion, and character testing.”

Kirkus Reviews

“The Immundus is so well-written, you practically soar along as you read, it’s very easy on the eyes, yet the prose is deft enough to inspire . . . I found myself flipping pages, wanting to read more. Really, the author can spun any yarn, and I’ll read it because I know I’ll be rewarded by her story-telling style.”

Future Boy (Amazon)

“The Immundus, by Christina Enquist, is an intriguing new take on the post-apocalyptic teen genre . . . I thoroughly enjoyed The Immundus and am looking forward to the next book. Readers of books like Divergent, The Maze Runner and even Ender’s Game should enjoy The Immundus.”
