About the Author
Trinity Faegen wasn’t always a writer. She had an illustrious career as a Campus Cop in college, led many children astray as a camp counselor, and decorated Christmas trees for sweet, and not-so-sweet, little old ladies. Trinity lives in the outback of Texas with her husband and a mean cat. You can visit her online at www.trinityfaegen.com.

This isn't a huge thought-provoking read. It's not going to turn you on your side and twist you around before leaving you a little dazed and confused. There's a ton of clichés, some inconsistencies, a few too many convenient coincidences, and quite a bit of info dumping in the first few chapters. And yet, I really enjoyed it. Somehow, the new twist on the mythology was able to make up for everything else in the novel that would usually annoy me.
Sasha's life is upended in the span of just a couple days. She escapes death at the hands of some of her classmates, her mother is sent to Russia, she moves in with an uncle she didn't know she had with an aunt that hates her, and she learns she is an Anabo, a daughter of Aurora (the daughter of Adam and Eve). Despite all of this, she doesn't give up on her life and makes the best of what she has been dealt. Yes, she is a bit of a damsel in distress at times, but she can also take care of herself.
Jax is the son of Mephistopheles, a son of Hell. He can only find redemption in the love of an Anabo. He comes across Sasha one evening while on a raid of Eryx's Ravens, lost souls, and he knows that there is a reason he has found her.
These two don't fall in love immediately, like so many young adult novels have their characters do. Instead, there's lust at first sight, but both characters try to act the way they think they should, and don't act upon that lust (much). Only after spending time with each other, which admittedly is still not much time, do they start to fall for one another.
There was enough action to keep me turning from page to page, not wanting to take a break. There was enough romance to make me smile and swoon. The story was unique and not the typical angel story. The Mephisto Covenant is a fantastic book that despite a shaky start, and having more of the typical Young Adult pitfalls than I can usually read, managed to pull me in and make me enjoy it. This is definitely a book for anyone who likes a bit of angel mythology wrapped up in the action and romance.
OK so I guess I might need to redo some of my stars. Cause the last two books I have read. I really want to give them 6 stars. So from now on 5 stars is like AMAZING like stop what you are doing and go buy this book!
The Mephisto Covenant was so good. And with it being over 400 pages long I was VERY SCARED!
I hate long books as I don't have the time to read and review them. But I had this one laying around then was approved for the Mephisto Kiss so I knew I needed to read the first one. So I started it then Eve and Adam came so I read that first. I know bad Jessica!
When I started back with this book yesterday I was sucked in and staid there until the last page. Last night I was around chapter 12 and I just didn't want to put it down. It was almost midnight and I was still reading. Watching the words starting to jumble and I just didn't want to stop. But, I finally had to as I just couldn't see the words on the pages anymore.
So I gave up and passed out in bed with the book close by. First thing this morning I grabbed the book, made my daughters breakfast and her lunch for school and off she went. Me I made some toast and started reading.
I didn't stop until I was done which was at 10:30am EST so not that long ago. Then I just had to get this posted because it was such a great book.
This book is filled with love, hate, pain, survival, more love, passion, and one particular part that I would rate for ages 15 and up. Deff. a high school teen book. It is very godly but it doesn't preach. I have been pagan for almost 20 years and I didn't feel like I was being preached to. So that makes the book even better. Faegen wrote this book in such a way that this book will appeal to anyone who loves the paranormal and adventure. And well likes to see the bad guy get whats coming to him. Its also about Free Will and what you are willing to give your soul up for. This book was amazing never a boring moment!
I have the ebook ARC of book 2 from netgalley and will be starting it soon. I was looking on amazon to see what it was about. I do think that each brother in this book will find his Anabo. Which really makes me love this series even more. One of my fav authors is Sherrilyn Kenyon, She is the author of the Dark Hunter series (adults only please) which is a wonderful paranormal romance series. Where like The Mephisto Covenant everyone finds their intended in the end.

The story it self is a little dark and sad, well very gloomy. However that is why it is such a good book. The stark contrast between the melancholy mood and tone of the story against the sweet romance of the hero and heroin put me in awe. When you see the love of the story and faith and frustration between the two protagonists you completely forget about conflict. I think that is what makes a good love story.
The main conflict is that of the evil brother who is trying to collect souls and overthrow the devil. An what is also cool is that Faegen puts Lucifer and Mephistoles into a different light than what we think of them in society now. With the entrance of this new villain we also see what can be construed as worst than Hell.
I am head over heels in love with this book, and have even bought the second without reading th description in good faith. I began this book the day I finished a book and went to library to get a novel to pass the time with. I started this book when I was about to go to bed around 10 and didn't stop until I was finished around dawn. I have bought this book only because I loved it so much and to say I own it, Ms. Faegen deserves compensation for creating such a epic story.
