Ryder wants to be more than a lab rat; he wants to be free.
Katie wants him to save the world.
Purists want him dead.

A supervirus threatens to wipe out the human population.

The only hope for the future is a cure hidden inside Ryder Stone. Created in a lab and brutalized, betrayed and hated by humans, Ryder yearns for freedom. On the outside, a group of human genetic purists want him dead.

When Katie Marsh, a brilliant young geneticist, discovers his secret, she must fight to protect Ryder, gain his trust…and convince him to save humanity before the purists destroy them both.

The Venom of Vipers was named a Top-15 Book of 2010 by author and book reviewer Robert Duperre on The Journal of Always.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Having forever been a Sci-Fi/Fantasy nut and a fan of great writing works in those genres, I must say that K.C. May is one of the greats! I never give books five stars unless I believe that they are the top.. the best.. as good as they could have been. This is one of those books that meet my requirements, and fully deserves the five stars I’ve given it.


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 more of KC May’s books!


This is a fast paced read with an interesting kick, the characters are exciting and the story unique. I really enjoyed the pace and the believability of a future time and place in our possible history. This is a great read, keeping you turning the pages, and following the characters. It is a interesting and bizarre twist in a futuristic thriller.

About The Author

I started writing as a kid, but never considered writing for publication until I was around 30 years old. Then it occurred to me that making a living as a writer wouldn’t be a bad deal. I wrote four novels, went through numerous workshops and critique groups, and worked hard to improve my writing skills. In 2005, I attended the Viable Paradise workshop in beautiful Martha’s Vineyard. It was probably the single most influential, helpful writing-related event I’ve experienced. I hope to repeat it this year.

That same year, I entered my novel in a contest for which first-place was a hardcover contract. I won! The publisher wanted to work with an agent, though, so I made a list of the ten most relevant agents for the genre and queried them. That’s when I found out that getting an agent when you already have a publishing contract is pretty easy. The Kinshield Legacy was my first published novel.

In the late 1990s, I was a contributing author for a tech book on Seagate Crystal Reports 7. I’ve also been writing professionally for software companies for about eleven years now, with a nine-year break to write software (C++). Writing software is fun, but technical writing is less stressful.

K.C. May is a pseudonym.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – K.C. May and ENT appreciate it.
