    1. I spent the entire day reading this book, not because it was laborsome I was trying to read it among all of the honey do chores on my list I couldn t put it down Hats off to KC An amazing author She was able to weave three or four subplots into one successful storyline, bringing each character to life in their own way.

    2. Rating 4.6 out of 5Science fiction many times comes down to en exploration of what it means to be human When done well, it serves as an organic metaphor, breaking down the societal systems we exist within and revealing, through conflict, the best and worst of us Sometimes it shows how far we ve fallen, how our creations have ended up stealing a bit of our souls, bringing us to the brink of becoming slaves to that which we ve created or, worst of all, regressing into a form of pre humanity that i [...]

    5. I first heard of this book through the Kindle page on Facebook, where the Kindle alumni were constantly raving about how good it was Since I love finding new authors and the price was only 2.99 that s 0.99 for most of you , I figured what the hey and bought it.It has been sitting on my Kindle since then, half forgotten, until just a few days ago when I decided to give it a go.Since then, I have barely been able to put it down, even causing me problems at work taking way too long breaks.Only toda [...]

    6. This book is starting out just terrific I don t know why I m surprised At about the 50% mark now and I m seeing stars FIVE STARS I kept waking up last night, which is what I do until I fall into a deep sleep, but each time, I grab for my kindle to read another page in this story I see it as a movie I m very pleased and impressed that the author didn t kill the dog in this book Everytime I pick up a book and a dog or cat is mentioned, you just know it will meet it s end soon I try to skip those p [...]

    7. This book was great I loved the storyline, and it was very well written Honestly, the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is the amount of swearing which I can t stand especially f It would have been just as good of a story or in my opinion, better without all the swearing But it was great other than that The characters were all well thought out, and it kept my interest throughout the whole book I never wanted to put it down Good work, KC A sequel, maybe

    8. I thought the Venom of Vipers was a really good science fiction story Great conflicts and characterization, and believable plot.

    9. Imagine a world where humans have created a new species, a species designed to be the saviors of mankind In 2023, people are dying of the Moliomyositis at an alarming rate and the entire population will be killed off in short order, unless a cure can be found Henry Marsh has engineered an entire species, the Homo sapiens heredis, or saphers, in an effort to find a cure for Molio His research is on the cutting edge and he may be closer than he thinks, but time is quickly running outThe saphers li [...]

    10. The Venom of Vipers is the second book I have read by KC May, both of them excellent I don t typically read a lot of scifi stuff, but this book had me hooked early and kept me interested till the end I finished it up in two sittings The plot is that there is a super disease that is well on its way to wiping humans off the planet If the disease is cured it creates toxins that destroy the body, if it is not a terrible death waits A sub race of humans mixed with reptile DNA is created to make them [...]

    11. In this near future biotech thriller, a deadly virus threatens to wipe out the human race To ensure that the legacy of humans thrives, a virus resistant sub species of homo sapiens the sapher is created But in order to save humanity, all homo sapiens must learn to live together peacefully This is a marvelous book by an independent author Generally when I read science fiction books, especially biotech books, I sit there and groan at the inaccurate science This is the curse of being a scientist in [...]

    12. In the twenty first century there is a virus that has no known cure A virus that no vaccine can prevent It s a virus that will eventually wipe out mankind if an answer for it can t be found In an effort to try to save humanity, science, through genetic engineering, created the Homo Sapien Saphers The Sapher, proving to be immune from this virus becomes the worlds hope to continue on when the sub species homo sapien sapiens become extinct But there s one problem and Dr Katie Marsh returns to the [...]

    13. I won this book in one of the First Reads contests and am really glad I did I m a high school biology teacher so I was delighted at how seamlessly The Venom of Vipers tied the real science in with the science fiction You could almost even call it science future since the theory behind the concept is real transgenic organisms I was also thrilled with how the author incorporated the science content the conversations were believable and the science was explained well enough that someone without a s [...]

    14. The primary characters, Katie a doctor researcher and Ryder one of the saphers were likeable Although Ryder had many faults, his temper being one, this just made him seem human The fictional science was a big part of the premise and overall story, but not so far out as to be unbelievable it seemed very conceivable by extrapolating current scientific knowledge out just a few years Most important, the story revolved around the characters rather than the science As with any well told story, I foun [...]

    15. This was a very enjoyable tale that had me hooked from the start.The characters are written very well, each with very unique personalities and agendas that play into the twists and turns of the plot.While the idea of creating a new subspecies of humans as a means of saving us might seem a stretch, K.C does a fine job of making it seem like a natural course of action After a while you almost forget the implausibility of it But the saphers are great characters, and Ryder Stone s vibrant energy is [...]

    16. Yay A futuristic sci fi thriller with NO zombies or vampires I am in heaven Yes, that intro is a bit over the top, but this is exactly the type of science fiction I like to read something set in the near future, with a plot that actually seems halfway plausible Throw in an energetic writing style along with well described characters and crisp dialogue and I can t help but give this imaginative novel five stars I really enjoyed the story and was anxious to see how it turned out Nothing about this [...]

    17. Two stars One for each character What could have been such a promising concept of a story Is left totally flat The two main characters apparently have a history together But that gets explained away in two paragraphs The story gets choppy And you get introduced to other characters that basically come in Say hey And go right back out again.And what the hell Katie basically gave birth to Ryder s daughter And there is no backstory except a couple of mentions here and there Wtf And Katie, being the [...]

    18. In the not too distant future humanity is being decimated by the Molio virus, which has no known cure Genetically modified humans Homo sapiens sapheris have been created in an attempt to find a cure Saphers heal rapidly and are immune to the virus, but they can t reproduce without the help of human surrogate mothers and, as yet, have not provided a cure They also have no human rights, are kept locked up in scientific facilities and are hated by a large number of the human population The story fo [...]

    19. I am so glad that I have found independent authors like K.C May Venom of Vipers was a pleasant surprise from an author I had not previously heard of I liked seeing some animal rights issues in this futuristic storyline The story did not start out fast paced, but it was an interesting read and started moving along in the 2nd half I encourage everyone to give this book a try if you like futuristic fiction Good job K.C.

    20. I very much enjoyed this one LOVED the premise LOVED the technological and biological aspects It seems well researched There were points midway through the book that the story slowed some, but the last thirty percent flew by I would love to see this in a movie and see a Sapher walking in real life Good stuff

    21. Wow, what a good read this is Sometimes I can t wrap my head around a sci fi in the first couple of chapters so am fussy about sci fi s to read, but this one I was hooked in the first chapter For some reason I am reminded of Michael Crichton s Andromedea Strain after reading this A worthy read and hard to put down once you start it Looking forward ro reading of KC May s books

    22. When starting the book, I was a little worried b c I am not a fan of science fiction However, the reader is immediately aware that an extra element of medical thriller is added in, which was a big relief for me as it made me much interested.

    23. What a fantastic sci fi thriller from an independent author Not only was it a good unique story but the writing was good also I was really impressed by this book I will definitely be reading K.C s other book, The Kinshield Legacy Great book

    24. The Venom of Vipers is a great read I am not always into Sci fi books, but found this one to be thoroughly engaging and hard to put down Highly recommend and look forward to reading other book by K.C May.

    25. I wouldn t mind seeing another story from KC May if it could possibly live up to The Venom of Vipers I thoroughly enjoyed it it was a refreshing change from all the crap on the market these days.The only way it could have been made better is if it was a bit longer.

    26. This book felt like a movie The action is fast, the characters are interesting and the story is very original I highly recommend it.
