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.

Ms. Faegen puts an interesting spin on the whole Angel craze while intertwining some interesting German folklore into it. Sasha is the female protagonist, a descendent of Eve and an Anabo which makes Sasha’s soul that of an angel, destined for Heaven. She’s able to resist temptation in every way, truly wish people well with a need to help others and attracts others with her selfless personality.

The Brothers of Hell are the sons of Mephistopheles who is known in German Folklore as a Demon or the Devil himself and in this case he is the Gate Keeper of Hell. The brothers keep the souls of the damned away from their evil brother, Eryx who seeks to use the souls for his own nefarious purposes. The only way for a Son of Hell to find peace and redemption is in The Mephisto Covenant which is to not only fall in love with an Anabo but for that Anabo to love him back with her own free will. Trouble is, Anabos are rare and the five brothers have only seen one other in all their very long immortal lives.

Sasha meets Jax when she decides to join The Ravens-a group of kids from her school that seem to get whatever they wish for. Sasha lost her father to murder in Russia and the lack of investigation and suspects is making her grief all that much worse. When she gets to the ultra-secret meeting, things don’t go quite as she expected, this is where Sasha and Jax meet and from then on the story enfolds into an intricate web of spy conspiracies, danger, mystery, intrigue and let’s not forget bloomin’ romance with a hunka’ burnin’ love!

The Mephisto Covenant truly was written is such a way that there was always something happening, never a boring moment and it pretty much takes a manic pace from start to end which is what made it so hard to put down. The characters are feisty and funny, sad and grieving or battling and wrathful depending on the situation and it’s all done with aplomb! Superb flow with varying plots that intermingle perfectly, something I’m amazed at when a seasoned author accomplishes let alone a debut author!


  1. Manic & fiesty - I'm there! (I just saw from your profile that you are an RN - that's what I'm in school for right now too.)

  2. LOL, Yeppers, Manic and Feisty is always good in my books! I really loved this book! I wrote my review last month and forgot to actually post it because I wanted to post it closer to pub. date, I was surprised at the varying reviews it got.

    Cool beans! Going to Nursing School is HARD-I don't think the general public realizes just how much knowledge we have and how much responsiblity! I'm only a little over a year away from my Masters but I'm on sabbatical at the moment :o] Congrats to you and best of luck!

  3. This sounds like a great read! I didn't know too much about it but after your break down of the German folklore, I'm definitely piing for it. Thanks for the review!

  4. Oooh I can't wait to start this one! Yours is one of the only GOOD reviews I've read of this one!!! YAY!!!

  5. So much action! Sounds like a perfect book for me!!! SWEET!!! I'm so putting it on my wishlist. Plus, the cover is yummy too!

  6. Whoa! I've been reading a mix of reviews for this one but most haven't been this enthusiastic. Sounds like a lot of interesting stuff is taking place in this one.

    Since I'm a big fan of bloomin’ romance with a hunka’ burnin’ love, I think I'll have to give this one a go. :)

  7. I know, there are so many different reviews on this one but I loved it!

    The Sons of Hell/Mephistoles as far as I can tell comes from a German Folklore although it's never expressed in the book. After my review I read that a lot were calling it mythology?

    I just know I really liked it and can't wait for the next one to come out :o]

  8. Omg I really shouldnt read your blog, it's so bad for my wallet already! Another I need to buy right now!
