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's apprentice. She wakes up in a coffin that is headed to an island, Lowell island, sinister and inhabited by Lord Victor Lowell and a multitude of wild cannibals. What may begin as a romance between Evie and the dark and mysterious Lowell confounds and confuses Evie; there are dark forces at work that Evie must overcome. Celeste has a way of capturing the world of vampires as accurately as a writer can describe something that is both fantastical and scary. A worthy trip awaits the reader in this captivating dystopian romance.
