There is something about the way Kayti Nika Raet starts her books that is so engrossing; something both so creepy and so captivating. -- (FIVE STARS) Readers' Favorite

About the Author

Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Kayti Nika Raet moved down South when she was 11, where she was bitten by the writing bug, as well as other, less friendly insects. 
She is the author of the Outsider Chronicles, a five book series starting with NIKO and set in a world where the rain burns like acid and flesh eating monsters roam.
She's also a reviewer for Readers' Favorite and has her own Youtube Channel: Kayti Edition.
When she is not hard at work on her fourth book she has fun reading, listening to K-pop, and photography.
Kayti lives in Milledgeville, Georgia.

Harm is the second installment in The Outsider Chronicles and it is just as good as the first, maybe even better. The struggles that Niko finds herself overcoming is believable and astounding at the same time.

Since the trio of Ben, Niko and Jared only have enough money for two of them to enter the city, Ben and Jared go ahead while Niko enters the slums to survive. After a group of thugs pick a fight with Niko, Songhay swoops in to save her. She joins Songhay and his sister Roosevelt and they survive together.

During this time, Raet introduces us to a whole new set of characters that Niko integrates with and quite frankly, I enjoy Songhay and Roosevelt better than Ben and his group. These people are good people surviving on the outside and not taking anything for granted.

Niko continues to learn about her past and about her parents, and discovers things that I hadn't seen coming and that surely Niko didn't. Niko is challenged not only on a survival level but also on an emotional level.

I really enjoyed this book because we were able to see Niko's personality soften a bit and see a more compassionate side to her. The cold and calculating Niko is still there and will always need to be there in order for her to survive.

Harm is filled with action packed adventure and is fast paced. This book will keep you engrossed from start to finish. The characters are well developed and easily enjoyable. The descriptions from the author are placed well and are detailed enough to paint a picture in my head.

Looking forward to reading the next installment.

This is the second book in author Kayti Nika Raet's dystopian trilogy about a young woman struggling to survive in a very dangerous world.
It's a world where acid rain falls from the skies, where even touching the ground with your bare skin can lead to death, and where humanoid Slithers roam the land eager to kill - and then eat - unwary humans.
Niko - a rare human with the ability to kill Slithers - has escaped from Amaryllis City with her brother and a friend at the end of the first book. In this novel they are making their way to a new city where they encounter gangs and grifters before learning that only two of them can afford to enter. Niko - who has adopted the nickname Harm as a means of trying to stay under the radar - volunteers to stay Outside the city while her brother and friend enter. It's a dangerous decision but, because of her abilities and the fact that she has lived most of her life Outside the walls of Amaryllis City, she believes she is more capable of surviving in the slummy conditions than either her brother or friend.
She's right, but that doesn't mean her life is going to be any picnic and it's not long before she is trying desperately to stay alive.
Unlike the first book in the series, "Harm" is not as lyrical as "Niko." The plot is well imagined and the narrative remains strong but missing are those almost poetic turns of phrase that make "Niko" a delight to read. "Harm" also suffers from some editing issues: Missing words, occasional misuse of words ("their" for "there," for example) and other mistakes slow down the narrative. That's a shame because "Harm" contains all the elements of a top-flight novel; strong characters, a well-thought-out world, and enough mystery to keep the reader guessing.

I was hooked after reading the first book. Shortly after beginning this book I became obsessed. It has a unique storyline which is different from the first book. New characters were introduced Songhay and Roosevelt. I am fascinated by them. I thought I was team Ben but I'm leaning towards team Songhay. Roosevelt is snarky and sassy. She is definitely a light in this very dark world. Niko is strong and complex. She continues to show how many layers this character has. I'm addicted and can't wait to start the next book of the series.

Harm is the fast-paced, thoroughly engrossing second installment in Kayti Nika Raet's The Outsider Chronicles and picks up right where Niko left off, leading readers through the stressful twists and turns of Niko's journey after her narrow escape from Amaryllis City. Traveling with Ben and her brother, with hopes of making it to Ben's hometown of Cherai City, the trio encounter all sorts of obstacles along the way, before arriving at the city gates, only to be turned away without a thought when they fail to produce the entry fee. Deciding their best chance to get inside is to split up, Niko goes it alone on the outside, traversing the slums, encountering evil gangs, unscrupulous boot-sellers (trust me, you need some boots!) and finally meeting Songhay, a mysterious boy with some serious fighting skills. Songhay saves Niko, now calling herself Harm, from a rather horrible situation and together with Songhay's sister, Roosevelt, the trio learn to (kind of) trust one another and survive.

As exciting and unique as the first installment in the series, Niko, I especially enjoyed Harm because of the character Songhay. He is the one person in Niko's life who seems to soften her a bit, humanize her in ways that not even her brother, Jared, can. I have no idea whether Songhay will play a more important role in Niko's journey, but I do appreciate his ability to get under Niko's skin and show us another side of her, something besides her usual cold, calculated and very controlled self. (And I know Niko needs to be cold and calculated to survive this deadly landscape of acid rain, Slithers and corrupt individuals at every corner, but it's nice to see there is someone with whom she can let her guard down and genuinely smile, even if it's only for a moment.
