One of the aspects that I love so much about the series, and this novel in general, is that it follows a different male lead in each book. In The Mephisto Covenant, we met Jax and learned everything through his eyes. He's exceptionally dreamy and I was in love. In The Mephisto Kiss, it's Kryos' (Key) story, and though he has a lot of issues, and I do mean a lot, so does Jordan, his intended Anabo, and their banter and interactions throughout the novel make this fictional tale seem so real. I can't imagine being in Jordan's shoes... not only is she the president's daughter, but she undergoes a very life-threatening ordeal only to be whisked away and learn that her long time boyfriend is severely injured, that her father believes her dead, and that she's an Anabo destined to live on a mountain, take down demons, and never set foot in her old life again. At times, I thought Jordan was being a bit childish, but then I'd step back and go through all the steps of her ordeal again, and then I'd think that Key was actually being childish... I flip-flopped allegiances so many times in this love story that it isn't even funny, but it made me love the story all the more. Especially with the climactic ending... I was screaming, and I do me screaming at the characters, crying, sniffling, the whole nine yards. Faegen really can spin a tale, keeping the reader glued to the pages as the suspense and sheer terror of it all rises. And, Faegen write characters so in depth that you feel everything they do... I'm already on pins and needles for the next installment! Pick this series up, seriously, you won't be disappointed!
Jordan is the daughter of the President. Her life already being chaotic is only about to become more so. After discovering that she is one of the rare Anabo and her life is in danger, Jordan has a life changing decision to make. Does she choose salvation or will temptation lead her into darkness?
The one thing I remember vividly about The Mephisto Covenant was how steamy it was. Unfortunately, I felt this installment lacked in that department. But it made up for it in action. From the beginning of the novel, this book has a steady pace up until the very end.
Even though this is a companion novel, I do recommend reading the first. This book doesn't completely cover a lot of the plot lines that are addressed in book 1. The writing style is the same, so if you enjoyed The Mephisto Covenant, I do think you would like this sequel.
The Mephisto Kiss is a book about finding love and accepting that person fully. I enjoyed the ending and I'll be keeping my eye out for the next book in the series. I have a feeling, the brother with the most intriguing tale is yet to come.
This is a decent enough read about the Mephisto brother Kyros and the president's daughter Jordan. When Jax and Sasha see Jordan they know immediately that she is Anabo. They plan on telling the other Mephisto brothers eventually. Then Jordan is kidnapped by their evil brother Eryx, Eryx wants to force Jordan's father (the president of the US) to sell his soul to Eryx to save his daughter. This is not acceptable and Kyros goes to rescue Jordan and realizes that she is his intended and the only way he can make his way to Heaven.
As I mentioned in my review of The Mephisto Covenant, these books reminds me of a YA version of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. The Mephisto brothers are charged with keeping humanity safe from the people who turn evil and sell their souls to Eryx. Their only chance at redemption is to find an Anabo and get her to love him. The brothers are tortured sons of Hell whose only hope at redemption are the pure Anabo girls who are so rare.
Kyros was a good character, he is the leader of the Mephisto brothers and practical to a fault. He is not romantic but, from the moment he meets Jordan, he wants to be.
Jordan is much more determined and tough than Sasha was, she has a very strong will and is the perfect match for Kyros's tendency to be a control freak. She is practical and self-sacrificing, but always keeps things in perspective.
The above being said the characters felt very...well...stereotypical for this type of story.Read more ›
I do think i enjoyed this one more than the first. I liked how it had this almost political thriller feel to it, since Jordan is the president's daughter, and the Mephisto boys believe their estranged brother, Eryx is trying to get Mr.President to pledge his soul to him in order to take over the country. Of course there's still the paranormal conflicts, mainly that Jordan has no clue she's Anabo until Key rescues her.
I also appreciated that there was no instalove, lust sure, but definitely not love. Jordan actually has a brain, and uses it to stay alive and protect those around her rather than simply pining after Key. In fact, she tells him she doesn't want him in the beginning, and she has a boyfriend! It was refreshing, and I always love a good enemies to lovers story. Although, they're not technically enemies, but I'm sure you get my point!
While I did enjoy The Mephisto Kiss, it suffers from the same repetitiveness as the first book. I felt myself being super frustrated with Jordan and Key as they had this constant back and forth about the same thing over and over for the first 2/3 of the book. But then in the last third, things change and I found myself more hooked than I had been. I just wish the ending hadn't been so rushed.
