It only takes one drink from the Water of Immortality to kill Evie Woods—halfway. Trapped in undead flesh, the world’s last skin-slider wakens on an island purgatory where a cursed spring bubbles with immortality, and zombie cannibals crave living flesh.

Other Than is a really unique book. I’ve never read a story like this one and I was completely intrigued by it. The book takes place in 1774 and is told from the perspective of Evie (the book is written in 3rd person). Evie is a skin slider, which is like a shapeshifter, except she only changes her physical appearance, not into an animal. The story begins with Evie “waking up” after having died from a virus. She’s on a ship with her father, traveling to Lowell Island to try and find a cure for h ...more

Love the title of this book, Other Than by Mia Jo Celeste, her first kindle book which sets the stage for more in the series. The opening is a little reminiscent of Poe, half dead corpses in coffins. This aspect kind of reminded me of Premature Burial by Poe; while in fact, Evie, our lead female heroine is half dead. She is likely suspended, half dead, half alive. A shape shifter, or skin-slider as described. She is the daughter of a doctor, knows much about herbs and potions, and is her father' ...more

My Review:
I have never read a zombie novel before this, so it was all a new experience for me. It was interesting. And for a debut novel, amazing. The characters were fully involved. There was no standing around looking scary. Every single character had a function, a pu

There is so much to talk about this book and how much I love it, I honestly don’t know where to start.
Okay to be completely honest, the ‘zombie genre’ has been horribly overused these past years, and tv shows and movies such as ‘The Walking Dead’ are slowly dying because there aren’t any scary factor or enough plot to keep the show and their viewers stick to the characters, I mean we have come to the point where even zombies are boring, how about that? But fear not, this book will surely r

There are so many things I love about Other Than, it's hard to know where to start. It's told in a point of view with an old fashioned flair - once the main character, Evie, said "zounds" I was in! Archaic words happen to be my catnip. To stay in that olden days thread, there was also an herbalist apothecary, and between him and Evie, you get some great natural remedies. Gardening, another of my favorite things (without the weeds, thank you very much). There's an antihero, my favorite type of he ...more

This is a very interesting story with lots of surprises. You have an island full of mysteries and madness. It really destroys those who enter the island. The family there operates like an old-fashioned plantation with slaves. The difference is these slaves have been exposed to something that makes them more dead than alive. You add in Evie who is a kind of fae that can alter her appearance and her connection to Lord Victor who is the son of the family that owns the island and you get a really in ...more

Other Than Dead! An Amazing Story!!

Other Than

By: Mia Jo Celeste
Narrated by: Keira Stevens

A unique & original story! Mia Jo Celeste is detail oriented and creates an imaginative world and characters. The storylines are interesting and beautifully written. They immediately grab your attention and hold it until the very end, keeping you at the edge of your seat at times. There is great character development, the author gives descriptive details of the supernatural

Audio review:
Other Than ensnared my attention with its cover & tagline. The synopsis showcases a intriguing tale with suspense ravelled throughout the narrative. A dystopian tale with a perfect balance of romance and dystopia. Zombie cannibals, vampires, human slaves, all interweaved into the narrative. With new twists, new races, & a whole new & scarier ways to look at zombies.

I think if there was music in the background it would have made the listen more enjoyable.

This is a non stop action packed book. I was a little lost to begin with but soon understood what was going on. There is literally no breathing room in this book. Good storyline, I’m still a little unsure on zombies but so much going on that’s easy to put aside!

The narration by Keira Stevens is also very good.
