THE FAERYS VIEW

The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen was a One-Sit-Read for me. Dark and enthralling, I was captivated my Ms. Faegen's unique take on the dynamics between Heaven and Hell and those that fall in between.

Ms. Faegen puts an interesting spin on the whole Angel craze while intertwining some interesting German folklore into it. Sasha is the female protagonist, a descendent of Eve and an Anabo which makes Sasha's soul that of an angel, destined for Heaven. She's able to resist temptation in every way, truly wish people well with a need to help others and attracts others with her selfless personality.

The Brothers of Hell are the sons of Mephistopheles who is known in German Folklore as a Demon or the Devil himself and in this case he is the Gate Keeper of Hell. The brothers keep the souls of the damned away from their evil brother, Eryx who seeks to use the souls for his own nefarious purposes. The only way for a Son of Hell to find peace and redemption is in The Mephisto Covenant which is to not only fall in love with an Anabo but for that Anabo to love him back with her own free will. Trouble is, Anabos are rare and the five brothers have only seen one other in all their very long immortal lives.

Sasha meets Jax when she decides to join The Ravens-a group of kids from her school that seem to get whatever they wish for. Sasha lost her father to murder in Russia and the lack of investigation and suspects is making her grief all that much worse. When she gets to the ultra-secret meeting, things don't go quite as she expected, this is where Sasha and Jax meet and from then on the story enfolds into an intricate web of spy conspiracies, danger, mystery, intrigue and let's not forget bloomin' romance with a hunka' burnin' love!

Seventeen-year-old Sasha Annenkova wants nothing more than to learn the truth behind her father's murder in Russia years earlier. When a group of students at her Oakland high school tell her of a club called the Ravens, a group that pledges to give up God and serve Eryx in exchange for being granted whatever they want, she jumps at the chance to discover what really happened to her father. At the Ravens meeting she is shocked, however, when they inform her that she is Anabo, a daughter of Eve, pure and un-tempted by sin, with the power to destroy Eryx. The Ravens have lured her to their secret location to kill her, ending the threat she poses to the one they serve, and they almost succeed until she is rescued by Ajax DeKyanos. Ajax, or Jax, informs her that he is Mephisto, a son of the dark angel Mephistopholes, as are his brothers, including the oldest, Eryx. Thousands of years earlier, Jax and his brothers were promised by God that if they found an Anabo and were able to make her love them, they would be redeemed and able to worthy of heaven, fulfilling the Mephisto Covenant. Eryx, however, chose to seek power, and is attempting to recruit souls to help him overthrow Lucifer, creating Hell on Earth. Jax immediately falls in love with Sasha, but, although she is attracted to him, Sasha isn't sure that she can love a son of Hell. As the threat from Eryx grows, will Jax be able to achieve the redemption he has sought for thousands of years?

Convoluted, schizophrenic and, at times, just plain silly, this first installment in a new paranormal series of young adults is difficult to recommend to any reader for several reasons. Although there is some interesting concepts in the book (the idea of the Mephisto Covenant, the importance of the daughters of Eve, etc.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I will admit that I picked this book based on the beautiful cover alone. I will also admit that I was very nervous after I started reading "Mephisto Covenant". I was sure that I wouldn't enjoy the story. I had some big concerns within the first several chapters. I was disappointed thinking immediately that the book had the "Twilight" feel as so many YA paranormal stories do. Sweet innocent girl meets supernatural guy living in his own 'world'. Even more disappointing to find out that the book suffered mega info dump syndrome in the first several chapters. There is a involved world where the rules are unique and complex. This ends up being a good thing but not at first when my mind was trying to process everything going on and why.

I am glad I stuck with the story because just a few more chapters in and I found myself completely sucked into this world and invested in the story. The premise of the story is that Sasha is trying to find out who murdered her father. This leads her to an encounter with a group of kids from her school called "The Ravens" who have sold their soul to Eryx, a demon who wants to take over Lucifer's place in Hell. Eryx uses all these lost souls to build up his army to go against Lucifer. Sasha finds out that she is an Anabo. Anabo's are rare people who are pure of heart and good. They are predestined for Heaven's gates. Then there are the Mephisto. These are Eryx's brothers, sons of Hell who actually fight the fight against Eryx and his plans to be worse than Lucifer. If an Anabo can fall in love with one of the brother's than the brother can be redeemed and worthy for Heaven again. This match is called the "Mephisto Covenant".

So once I wrapped my head around all of that, the story was impossible to put down.
