Venom of Vipers by KC May

I kept meaning to read this for ages, so at last I did.

It's set in a near future world, where the human race is about to be extinct from a disease, molio.  They have cross bred humans with reptiles in order to try for a cure and to keep even a part human going.  The cross breeds - called Saphers - live on a compound and the humans outside either want them to have full human rights and be freed or be put down as they are abominations.

I enjoyed this story.  It worked as a thriller and also made you think about "human" rights and genetics.  The characters were interesting.  I often forgot that some of them were Saphers and not human prisoners.
