The Venom of Vipers by K.C. May

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.

Dawn's Review:

All I can say is WOW! Ok, I can say more than that, but it's pretty much more of the same. I loved this book. Not only was it a really great story-line, but it was just so well written. There wasn't so much detail as to bog down the book, yet nothing was left out. But mostly, it was a really great story. I loved the characters, and the story itself was really unique. With only two chapters left in the book, I had to leave for a short road trip over the weekend, and all I could think about was getting home so I could finish the book. It was the first thing I did when I got home. The final chapter is so touching and I found myself tearing up at the end. Don't worry, it was the good kind. You'll know when you get there!
