Review: The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen

The Mephisto Covenant: The Redemption of Ajax - Trinity Faegen

First off, I need to get a small rant off my chest. Another book cover with a chick in a dress? C'mon people. We can do better than that. And the girl in the dress has absolutely nothing to do with the book. Is it just me or do you see tons of YA books with a girl in a dress on the cover? It's driving me crazy! Ok. End of rant.

Back to the book. The heat/energy/intensity of Jax and Sasha's relationship is some serious amount of sexytimes. I had the whole knight in shining armor image stuck in my head several times while reading this book. And to me, that's not a bad thing if it's played just right. And it was. Loved it. I thought a few times that I could just start a lil cat fight with Sasha and still Jax for myself. But who am I kidding? A fictional Sasha would probably whoop my ass. More to the point, I usually don't care for romance engulfing an entire book, but in this case, I enjoyed. I really did. It kept me up late two nights in a row reading.

I thought this book had an amazingly well thought out plot. It has the mythology edge that's trending in YA that just scoops you up and swallows your whole. It's mystical and engrossing.. ok I'll stop with the fancy words. Basically, Sasha is like a pure human angel on earth and the bad dude, Eryx, will do everything he can to get his hands on her. That's where the handsome Jax steps in and saves her. He knows this will be his only chance for peace and for a ticket into Heaven. He has to win her over. But he also doesn't want to steal Sasha's mortality and open her eyes to the evil in the world. But he loves her. Doesn't love conquer all? To find out, go buy this book now. I'm serious. I loved it that much.
