Imagine you get to be a juror on a trial of a person who will eventually wrong you or one of your family members. Now imagine that defendant is an unborn baby, a viper (viable person), and you get to decide whether their life even begins. This is the story of The Prynne Viper.
I love Bianca Marais’s writing and this is a great piece of speculative fiction. As always with novellas or short stories, I wanted more. More detail about each juror and what the impact on them might be would have been great but I loved the three that we followed and how unique each’s perspective was. Even though the story was short, there was great world building and the moral conundrum presented was really fabulously done. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐
I am the Vice President of Clinical Affairs for a medical device company where my job is to promote the utility of the device to doctors. I have science and business degrees and have editorial experience in medical communications. In college, I served as an Editorial Assistant for a healthcare communications company and have served on two editorial boards for peer-reviewed journals.
In my free time, I always have a book in my hand... or two or three! On average, I read 20 books a month. I have looked to combine two of my skill sets to review on Goodreads and promote books on Instagram that I love to other readers.
I'm open to partnering with publishers as an influencer for book tours, giveaways etc.
