First Lines:   Your father's ring is gone!  That slime, Alex, took it - I know he did.
Concoction of a Review:

The concept of The Mephisto Covenant was intriguing to me, mythology that was built around biblical stories, mainly Adam & Eve.  Which is what I loved about it!  I would not be so bold to say that it might not offend Christians, alas, it my push on the boundaries.  Naturally when I seen it on NetGalley I did not hesitate to request it.  Mad Scientist found it to be just riveting.  I could hardly put it down.

Our young innocent star of the book, Sasha, is obsessed with finding out who killed her father.  She is a pure angel in human form, known as an Anabo.  One of a very small number.

Jax was a treat within the inky goodness.  He was not perfect by any means.   Shockingly we find out that he is a tortured Son of Hell.  *gasps*  He meets Sasha, who can be his salvation.  Literally, she may be his only chance at redeeming himself.  

Here is how I picture Jax:  As Alex Evans...

ALEX EVANSTwists and turns were around almost every page.  Eryx, our evil doer in this lore, needs her.  He has gathers devote followers by offering and giving them anything they desire.  Sadly, they do not know in taking what they so desire they give up the most valuable thing they have, their soul. 

I also really enjoyed the characters that played on the sidelines of the story.  Chris, her cousin was a typical teen but he had a cute side to him.  Jax's brother, Phoenix, was complicated, grieving, and full of fun snark.  We know how I enjoy a bit of snark in my books!  *grin*
He moved his head so that his lips were close to her ear.  "Run, Sasha.  If you can do it, run like hell and don't look back."
Overall, I believe that Trinity Faegen has an exciting new twisted series.  The ever there instant attraction was there like in many young adult books, however, the entwined history of The Mephisto Covenant warranted the quick pace.  The passion was intense and descriptive, surprisingly so that I was shocked to find it in a young adult book...

e-Book Love!

I'm sorry to see that so many people did not care for this book.  Oddly, sometimes that is the way it goes.  So many loved Fallen by Lauren Kate and I hated it.  Now it is opposite.  

*Free ARC from NetGalley which did not impede on my Mad Review.  It is completely honest and full of my thoughts on the book and the very persistent young man inside. *

4.7 Blasts --->  Most Desirable
I oddly enjoyed this book. Mythology, a deeply tortured young man, & good vs evil!!

  1. Sounds like an interesting book. I have it on order for my library, so I guess we'll see how it does. :)

  2. I'm very glad you enjoyed this one. I don't think I'll pick it up as it doesn't really grab me, but maybe one day I'll cross its path in the library. Good to know the passion is descriptive. You know how I so love that! LOL! :D PNR!

  3. @Jo & @ Jen I do believe I'm one of a handful that really did like this one. I think it was perfect for when I picked it up! :)

  4. 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.

  5. Why users still make use of to read news papers when in this technological
    world all is existing on net?
    Look into my web page ... popular facebook games

  6. This design is wicked! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you
    presented it. Too cool!
