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!Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
