The Mephisto Covenant

The Mephisto Covenant (The Mephisto Covenant, #1)
by Trinity Faegen

439 pages
Published September 27, 2011

This is a pre-release review. Thanks to Net Galley and the publisher, Egmont USA, for allowing me to read it early in exchange for an honest review.

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—Sasha is 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 looming, Jax has to keep Sasha safe and win her over. But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?


I loved this twist on the angel theme. Jax and his brothers are interesting characters: born without God's knowledge, they're doomed to Hell at the end. They each have one chance. At some point in time, there will be an Anabo for each of them. If they can find her, win her over, and truly love her, they will have to chance to earn heaven.

I really enjoyed this book. I didn't want it to end--and I kept thinking about it after it did. I was very happy when I realized there would be sequels. Yay!

5/5 stars
