Review via Cracking the Cover

“The Mephisto Covenant” is an addictive read. Author Trinity Faegen immediately captures the reader’s interest and her story is compelling. But “The Mephisto Covenant” is not for everyone.

The covenant is based on the idea that Eve had a daughter, Aurora, before falling from Grace. Aurora left Eden and God sent her a mate of pure spirit. Their descendants became the Anabo, or people of light. Lucifer tried to insinuate evil into the Anabo, but couldn’t stop them from spreading their light. Jax is the son of a dark angel whose job is to take souls to hell. His mother was an Anabo.

The whole concept is a bit confusing and requires people to set their religious beliefs aside in order to fully enjoy the plot, which, truthfully is a bit convoluted.

Also of concern to some readers will be the mature content that comes into play throughout the book and climaxes toward the end. The publisher’s suggested age is 14 and up, but because of the graphic, though not lurid, nature of some of the content, 14 may be too young.
