With Kayti Nika Raet’s third book in the Outsider Chronicles now available for us readers to enjoy, Niko was gracious enough to take some time out from hunting Slithers to give us a little more insight on who she is. Niko is incredibly busy, and just getting her to sit down and take a breather was a bit difficult for both of us due to her having to save her world and all, but I am extremely grateful to her for sitting down with me. Check out the interview below and then go get your copy of Monster today.
What is it like having to step up and fulfill that parental role for your younger siblings?
It was tough at first, especially since Shawn was so young. I made a lot of mistakes, but I tried my best to keep everyone safe and happy.
What motivates you to keep going?
My brother Jared and the hope that if I do everything right, maybe, by the end of it all, everyone I care about will still be with me.
If I happen to run across a Slither what would increase my chances of survival?
Nothing. Unless you were born with the ability, unless you’re strong enough, and fast enough to beat them, there’s nothing you can do but hide and hope they don’t find you.
Do you think your world would ever change?
I hope it can. But I don’t think so.
If you could go back in time, what would be the one thing you would change?
Shawn would still be alive…But sometimes I wonder if that would mean that everything that has changed since his death would remain the same, if the Grey-men would still be oppressed, if the cities would still have their hold over Outsiders. If certain people would still be here.
What is the one thing readers haven’t figured out about you yet?
That’s a hard question.
I’m pretty straight forward. What I let you see is what you get. People who open themselves up get hurt, and I’ve been hurt enough.
What can we expect in your next book?
Everything starts to come together. Some people get what they deserve, some people don’t. There’s an ending but I’m not sure if it wiil be a happy one.
Thank you once again Niko for stopping by and giving us a little more insight on who you are. You are truly one BAD ASS CHICK and I wish you the best of luck in- wait a minute. What the hell is that? *sees something moving behind my desk* Is that a Slither?
Sorry you guys, but uh, I need to get the hell out of here before I end up on the menu. Niko and her bat has left the building and oh hell no…!
