    You know the saying Don t judge a book by its cover well I always do, if the cover does not catch my eye I will most likely skip it Although the cover on this one is cool, because of it s cartoonish look I wouldn t have given it a second look, I am horrible like that Well, yesterday I said I m going to read a few chapters and see if it s any good A few hours later I was done and could not believe how freaking good this book was Every single chapter was better than the one before, I could not sto [...]

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book and practically devoured the final third of it last night, having become so caught up in Niko and her quest.Niko is the first book in The Outsider Chronicles from Kayti Nika Raet Taking place in a dystopia that has suffered an apparent cataclysmic environmental disaster, leaving its inhabitants fearing the acid rain that falls from the skies, dodging heart eating Slithers and generally fighting to survive, Raet deftly creates a world full of despair and anger, with [...]

    Niko started out very interesting, but also in an almost confusing state I feel as though this was likely intentional by the author, since Niko s world came crashing down on her and she was thrust into a new environment Kayti s dystopian possibly alien science experiment gone wrong environmental message about the ozone zombies story is in a time when water falling to Earth in the form of rain has become acidic Consequently, food, survival, everything is hard to come by and a lot of people have b [...]

    Thelonious Legend
    The popularity of the Hunger Games, Divergent, and Legend has lead to an influx of dystopian series with a strong female lead Niko is the latest entrant of this burgeoning genre and infuses it with promise and it s own unique twist Premise Can t a girl just go out to get a bite to eat for her brothers without her house being burned down and her brothers being attacked by Slithers For Niko that would be a no Niko is the protector and provider of her brothers in this post apocalyptic world where p [...]

    Tamara Philip
    A pragmatic heroine in a harsh world is a surefire way to get my attention, and Niko is a great example of a no nonsense, hard boiled survivor in a world where that s the norm Though the character is presented with many emotional obstacles that would trip up your everyday YA main character, Niko wins my adoration by the simple and elusive ability to compartmentalize There is no reason to be eaten by monsters because you saw your crush pinned to the wall by so and so , and Niko never allowed this [...]

    Louise White
    Kayti Nica Raet s first book in the Outsider Chronicles was an amazing start to this post apocalyptic YA fantasy series Nico is struggling to survive in an extremely harsh environment where tragedy continues to strike at almost every turn There s lots in this book to appeal to the YA and also for the mature readership with Nico as a likeable and courageous heroine fighting against the evil, humanoid monsters Slithers who prowl and attack the peoples of the land.The relationships are nicely done [...]

    Action meets fantasyNiko is an amazing protagonist with a past that s dogging her footsteps I wasn t sure what to expect, but this story was well crafted and meticulous in its small details, making for a very enjoyable dystopian read Action scenes were well done and really thrilling to read Very captivating first book in a series you should definitely be reading if you re on the hunt for diverse books.

    NOTES ON DIVERSITY This book is packed with diversity It is Diverse with a capital D The main character is a take no shit suffer no fools Black teenager, and most of the people around her are other people of color, too brown folks, East Asian people, South Asian people, they run the gamut There are kickass queer characters There are characters with disabilities Class issues are on display Diversity is truly firing on all cylinders in Niko.Honestly, the author s attention to issues of diversity i [...]

    First, Niko is a badass girl with a baseball bat, an improvised Slither killing device I love kickass heroines and Niko has the courage and determination to hold her own in a harsh world full of terrible monsters.Second, this is not your average post apocalyptic young adult dystopian novel The story line is really unique and the world building and imagination of the author really stands out The world building is well done and the imagery is superb Third, there is considerable diversity among the [...]

    This book is not at all what I expected from seeing the cover Once I started reading this book, I couldn t put it down I immediately fell in love with Niko and her feisty character She is a true survivor with the smarts to take her far After losing what is left of her family, Niko is a fighter and since her brother wasn t confirmed to be dead, she is determined to find him With her newfound friends, she has to adjust to a completely different lifestyle while training to hunt slithers The author [...]

    Read this review and at The Bohemian Housewife BlogI needed to read this book after reading Pale and Crimson, a short story in the same series The world the author created is just incredible It seriously made me antsy at some points because of the acid rain or the fact slithers were everywhere That s another thing I love, SLITHERS Kayti Nika Raet did such a great job with them I mean, seriously, she did a GREAT job with them Niko is one of those books that you just can t put down, which is a pr [...]

    Cranky - The Book Curmudgeon
    4.5 Cranky Stars I ve had this book on my TBR pile for some time now It s one of those books I always meant to get to, but had to reprioritize for many and various reasons I finally got to read it on my summer holiday I m so glad I did This is an underrated gem and I would recommend it to any fan of the YA post apocalyptic genre.Niko is a seventeen year old living in a world where acid falls from the sky, coating the ground, water is contaminated, and monsters Slithers roam making meals of human [...]

    4.5 The pace of book was great right throughout, there weren t moments I felt the story was lingering or that there were fillers added to gain pages The novel s tempo felt like it wasn t a second thought that you sometimes get with author s first novels, instead it felt as if Raet knew from the beginning exactly what and how she wanted everything to be and no second guessing was done Another great, less obvious trait, that goes hand in hand with a theme I found in the book Independent stubbornn [...]

    Niko lives in a world where natural water, including rain, burns like acid On top of that, there are monstrous creatures called Slithers which attack and eat people Because of this, nearly everyone lives in fear and poverty and constant desperation for clean water However Niko, an orphan, does a pretty good job taking care of her two brothers She goes out on clear days looking for food and killing any Slithers who catch sight of her Until one day she comes home to see that her house is on fire O [...]

    I m so glad I read this I knew from the synopsis that it was going to be a good read I usually tend to steer toward romance but my love of all things weird and creepy wouldn t allow me to overlook Niko The first thing that caught my attention were the descriptions the author used They were so well done Sometimes authors overdo it on the details to try to get the reader to feel like they are apart of the story but this author got it right I literally cringed at some of the uses of onomatopoeia, w [...]

    O.M.G Loved this original gem Is Niko a badass or what Seriously I devoured this book, mostly for its unique premise, but nothing captivates me than a wonderfully written protagonist and her supporting characters There are many items on my checklist to rate a book with five stars This book easily hit every mark storytelling writing was engaging and seamless, captivating me throughout As I ve already mentioned, the characters were written very well, making it easy to identify and root for them W [...]

    I m not normally one to write reviews about books I have read, mostly because I have trouble finding the correct words to describe how I feel about the book itself and also to make sure I don t spoil anything But after talking with the author herself when I bought this book, and the second which I haven t read yet, I felt I ought to write a review about it because of how blown away I was.I picked up this book to distract me from the heat and boredom that is most of a farmer s market, for the far [...]

    Overall rating 4.5 5 stars Scribd version Niko is Raet s first installment of The Outsider Chronicles series, and it falls into the YA dystopian, kick ass female lead genre, which is fine by me Niko lives in a broken future where there is acid rain that has made water a scarce resource and where heart eating, pale faced creatures with long claws called Slithers hunt people Most people cannot kill Slithers, though, but a few, like Niko, can.After a fire destroys her home in the unprotected lands [...]

    Disclaimer I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.So, I feel like I need to start this review off with some disclosure while this book had a unique plot and was really interesting, it s rating did get knocked down for me upfront just because of some of the distracting punctuation problems I normally try not to mark books down for things like grammar and formatting because I know sometimes they just sneak past but there were a number of areas in this book where comma [...]

    I received a review copy of this book for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl First of all, I d just like to say that I m thrilled to know Niko is the first in a five book series, The Outsider Chronicles It can be almost painful not knowing if a book I m reading is going to be a standalone, a trilogy, or a series Niko offers up a unique look at a post apocalyptic world with characters who now feel like family to me, and I m looking forward to continuing this series In the beginning, Ni [...]

    The Earth is broken.Acid rain falls from the skies and murderous monsters roam the land, feasting on human hearts.To survive, you have to be strong, fast, and alert every minute of every day.Welcome to Niko s world It s not a nice place.Author Kayti Nika Raet has created an engaging heroine in Niko, the first book in her Outsider series Harmony Niko is only 17 but, armed with a nail studded baseball bat and an uncanny ability to kill Slithers humanoid monsters that prey on the weak, the slow, an [...]

    Lilyn G. (Scifi and Scary)
    Niko s main appeal at first is that the main character is a take no prisoners African American female that manages to avoid being a walking clich Niko is strong, self confident, loves her family and hasn t let the world destroy her down into a piece of numb nothing She s got a somewhat rare ability to kill Slithers, but the author resists the urge to turn her into the next Alice Which is an almost inevitable comparison, with that gorgeous red dress and the post apocalyptic world By the way, Niko [...]
