The eyes never lie. No one’s eyes are darker than Eryx. Not even the Devil’s.

When Jax and Sasha first see Jordan Ellis, they know she is no ordinary teenager. She’s the daughter of the President after all, but she’s also Anabo – a descendant of Eve.

What they don’t know is that Eryx plans to kidnap Jordan and force President Ellis to pledge his soul. If Eryx’s plot succeeds

Start your review of The Mephisto Kiss (The Mephisto Covenant #2)
This series is highly addicting and it's not just her writing. It's also the characters and their relationships. I also love the fact that each book is a stand-a-lone. You necessarily don't need to read them in order because the author recaps everything in one go. It can be quite repetitive, but I find that it clarifies everything quite nicely. Lovely writing and even if I was just waiting for that climatic ending, I still enjoyed it. 

Jordan and her love interest sure entertained me. They're bot

Recently, I have refrained from giving out 5-star reviews. Some books sort of…wash over me and I forget about them shortly after reading them. Few books leave an impact and make me want to beg for more….but The Mephisto Kiss is definitely NOT one of those books.

*Insert Glass Box of Emotion Here*

I was SO in love with The Mephisto Covenant’s Sasha and Ajax….in this book readers get a new story with familiar characters. This time it is big brother Key (Kyros) that gets his time in the spotlight and

This series is my very own YA version of J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood, only without Vampires. You have your group of boys who fight evil, and your group of woman who swoop in and save their lives. While reading, I got the same feelings I did while reading BDB series. I loved every single character in this book. No really, EVERY single one, even the villain. He's done some EVIL things, but in The Mephisto Kiss you get to see a different side to Eryx and learn a bit more about his history. ...more

After reading The Mephisto Covenant, I knew that I would have to read the sequel. There was something about the lore that this series is centered on that I find really intriguing. The Mephisto Kiss is more of a companion in the series as it follows a different set of characters. While Sasha and Jax make an appearance, this story is centered on Jordan Ellis and a different brother.

Jordan is the daughter of the President. Her life already being chaotic is only about to become more so. After disco

This is the second installment in The Mephisto Covenant and it picks about a year or so later than where we left off in book one. We start off with some of the characters from before. Jax is still training Sasha and they are doing great. But everything changes when they see Jordan, who isn’t just the President’s daughter, but she is an Anabo as well. After Jordan is kidnapped by Eryx, they must find her and protect her. The Sons of Hell will have to act fast to stop Eryx’s plan because is will b ...more

4/5 STARS.

The Mephisto Kiss is the second book of The Mephisto Covenant series. I can't tell you which brother it's about this time, cause that will just ruin the surprise.
( if you haven't read the first book, called The Mephisto Conenant, and have no idea what this series is all about, then don't hesitate and check it out by clicking/pasting this link - ).

It doesn't start off from where we left of in the previous book, which was kind of a disappointment

The thing I like most about book series like The Mephisto Covenant is that one story does not entirely depend on the other. Unlike trilogies, where if you don’t read book 1, books 2 and 3 don’t make sense, it helps if you read book 1, but it is its own story. It’s part of a whole, but separate as well.

The Mephisto Covenant was a fantastic book. The Mephisto Kiss was even better. Kyron, Key gets his turn at finding redemption in the Anabo Jordan. However, as much as she can get past his being a s
I can’t really quantify why I like this books. I just do.

I’m a big fan of the ridiculousness of adult paranormal romance series and I like that this series takes a lot of the tropes associated with adult PNR to create a YA series. And I like that each book is a stand alone about one of the brothers.

Other than the complete lack of sexy times I liked this book better than the first one. Because we had already been introduced into the world, there was less time spent explaining the world. And I lik

I love, love, love, this book! The series has turned out to be amazing, and I am in awe of Faegen’s sheer writing abilities! She is so creative and her novels quickly enrapture the reader; I read this in one sitting because it is that good! If you haven’t started the series, trust me, you need to read this!

One of the aspects that I love so much about the series, and this novel in general, is that it follows a different male lead in each book. In The Mephisto Covenant, we met Jax and learned eve

Spoiler Alert!!!!!!

This book had one of the best cliffhanger but non-cliffhanger endings ever. I know for a couple of chapters I really though that Eryx really was trying to get his light back. Like when you hear about it from Key's point of view you start to see that in the beginning he was never really a bad guy. He was trying to protect his brothers, of course you know he turned into a total bastard after but you know live and learn.
I was so not expecting Jordan's sister to be another Anabo

I loved The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen, so I was really excited to read The Mephisto Kiss. While I did not enjoy it quite as much, it was still a fantastic read. Jordan and Key were a swoon worthy couple and I just adore the way Trinity Faegen writes love stories.

I didn’t love Jordan and Key as much as I loved Sasha and Ajax because Jordan was much more accepting of the Mephisto Covenant. I really preferred Sasha’s confusion and rejection of Jax because he was literally a son of hell. T

I didn't think I could but I think I like Key more then I liked Jax.
I probably do like Sasha more then I liked Jordan though lol.
That ending though... I did not expect that to happen to Jordan and I used to think Eryx would turn out good, saved, get his own Anabo, ect but now... not so sure about that.

I'd been meaning to read book #1 from this series for a year, of course, never got to it. So I took the chance to read this one, especially because of the concept of this series. It's this original spin, combining elements of paranormal romance series for adults with young adult elements. The books have a recurring mythology, characters in common, but reading as I did only book #2 made perfect sense as a stand alone, everything was clear and straightforward without prior introductions.

The Mephisto Kiss is the second book in The Mephisto Covenant series telling the story of a group of men known as the ‘sons of hell’ – offspring of Mephistopheles, the dark angel of death and his forbidden affair with his true love - an angel resulting in 7 sons. Belonging to neither heaven nor hell they work to rid the world of the dark souls created by their enemy and brother Eryx in the effort to stop him overthrowing Lucifer.

Brothers of Hell, demons, Fallen angels, rich mythology, sizzling romance and plenty of supernatural excitement, this sequel surpassed all my expectations. I loved it! Trinity Faegen gave me everything I wanted and much more. There are many things I've come to love about the Mephisto brothers, but what I didn't expect to do was fall in love with the leader of the group, Keys nor did I except to love Eryx, the eldest brother who just so happens to be their sworn enemy. There's something to said a ...more

A thrilling story of romance, danger, and intrigue, THE MEPHISTO KISS continues the marvelous mythology that began in THE MEPHISTO COVENANT. My Thoughts:
Cover Love: I am a confirmed "Girl In Dress" book cover lover. So of course I swooned over this one! As much as there are flagrant similarities to book #1 the colour scheme and softness of the cover delivers an altogether different albeit strong message. (Yes that's right, I used "albeit"!)

I remember reading The Mephisto Covenant last year and somewhat enjoying it enough to where I was interested in seeing where Faegen was going to take this series. It wasn’t something that completely knocked me off my socks or I would’ve categorized into any kind of favorites’ list or anything like that, but it was entertaining. A page-turner. So, when I saw The Mephisto Kiss available, I decided to request and give it a try. I admit going into it with hopes that it would be better than the first ...more

After having thoroughly enjoyed reading The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen, I was super excited to start the next installment in this series, The Mephisto Kiss, which tells the story of Kyros aka Key, the fearless leader of the Mephisto.

Key had always distanced himself from his brothers. Never quite allowing himself to get to close, goof around, enjoy their company. Instead he buries himself in work, keeping himself busy looking out for his brothers, and doing all he can to defeat Eryx.

When Sasha and Jax first meet Jordan Ellis, they know she's no ordinary teenager. Sure, she's the daughter of the President of the United States, but she's also Anabo like Sasha, a descendant of Eve. What they don't know is how Eryx wants to kidnap her so her father will pledge his soul. If the plot succeeds, the consequences could be catastrophic. But the Mephisto brothers do know about Jordan's secret identity, and for one of them in particular, she could be the match that leads to their soul' ...more

(i also loved the sweet growin romance with Saha and Jax hes a romantic and it was adorable and i just liked the main characters better then in this one). In this one its like their trying to step up the stakes at every turn and made it less relatable and believable
in that way i didnt enjoy it as much as i enjoyed the first one.

This is the second book in the Mephiston Covenant. Faegen would like to write more books in this series but right now this is the last book she has on contract for this series. It was an okay book, I didn’t like it quite as much as The Mephisto Covenant.

This is a decent enough read about the Mephisto brother Kyros and the president’s daughter Jordan. When Jax and Sasha see Jordan they know immediately that she is Anabo. They plan on telling the other Mephisto brothers eventually. Then Jordan is

The Mephisto Kiss by Trinity Faegen is truly mind-blowingly amazing! I bow before this author in the deepest gratitude for this incredible and all-encompassing series that she has crafted. The characters are amazing, lovable, hot and heady. I fell in love with the first book in the series, The Mephisto Convenant, and could not wait for the second book. Was it as good? Oh YES!!
