The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen Book Review

Publisher: Egmont USA

Publication Date: September 27, 2011

Pages: 439

Interest: Series (The Mephisto Covenant book 1)

Challenge: 2011 Debut Author Challenge

Synopsis: Sasha is desperate to find out who murdered her father. When getting the answer means pledging her soul to Eryx, she unlocks a secret that puts her in grave danger—she is an Anabo, a daughter of Eve, and Eryx’s biggest threat.
A son of Hell, immortal, and bound to Earth forever, Jax looks for redemption in the Mephisto Covenant—God’s promise he will find peace in the love of an Anabo. After a thousand years, he’s finally found the girl he’s been searching for: Sasha.
With the threat of Eryx always looming, Jax knows he has to keep Sasha safe and win her over.  But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?

                On the beginning of the book it already got me hooked. A lot of thing had happened that got me so intrigue. The plot is very rich and carefully crafted. Plus the set of characters are awesome and they played their part perfectly. It’s fast pace at some point and yet at some it just goes on with its normal pace.
            Sasha is very sweet and I found how awesome and helpful she is. I could even picture how innocent and her face. I can’t help but pity her for all the bullying they’re doing with her. And also her total being intrigues me especially the prophecy and destiny that awaits her. Well for Ajax since he’s a creature of hell, I don’t feel the essence of him doing a typical dark creature thing; instead I find him sweet and a total gentleman.

            I like the concept about heaven and hell and salvation for people who did their best to earn it, plus the concept of a prophecy coming true. Although I just don’t like the ending because it came into a total rush. But then it’s a pretty good start for a series and I have a good feeling that the story will progress and it will surpass my expectations.
