Wasn't disappointed at all now I just have to wait again.... Still one of my favorite series!
Yep I'm addicted to her books.. It's 3am and I just finished book 3.. Seriously loving the characters a whole lot more. More character development and a whole lot of swoon. And I'm not even talking about instant love because sometimes these characters aren't interested in one another. And okay the timeline was kind of intense, a week and all this goes down? Crazy! I just know that I'm loving the world that Stephanie has written and I'll happily gobble up all her books. This one is definitely New ...more

Review originally on my blog: Book Series Addict

I saw Only You (formerly titled The Mephisto Mark) on Netgalley and requested it after reading the synopsis – the fantasy aspect of it with the Anabo heroine and the immortal Mephisto brothers sounded fascinating. I was not disappointed and just devoured the story from beginning to end. I absolutely loved Only You. Stephanie Faegan is one of the self-published authors that you hope to stumble upon when trolling Amazon, searching for a good read. Al

Mariah is broken, Phoenix is riddled with guilt, they are complicated and complex but when they are together the world can be a little easier to live in. An epic yet not at all traditional love story. I have never been one to really enjoy a romance novel but this book was so much more than your typical romance and I am so glad I decided to read it. This is my first book by this author but this will by far be my last! Stephanie Faegen just got herself a brand new fan and I look forward to reading ...more

What to say about this book....

I don't read a lot of paranormal/sci-fi/fantasy books. They overwhelm me. I get confused by all the rules in this alternative reality I'm supposed to be believing in (which makes the flawless depictions in Sarah Fine's Sanctum that much more awe inspiring). But I'm starting to wonder if maybe it's not me, it's them.

If ever there was a need for half-star ratings (CAN YOU HEAR ME GOODREADS?!?!?!?!!) it would be for this. This was a solid 2.5. And while I normally rou

The Mephisto Mark is the third story in a series about a group of 7 brothers, all the sons of Mephistopheles, an agent of Lucifer whose job is to bring souls to Hell (but only if they deserve to go). He tricked both God and Lucifer by being with an Anabo (a woman born without Original Sin) and producing his seven sons, all of which were destined for soulless immortality until their oldest brother sacrificed himself and their mother to bring them into God’s light, where the remaining 6 b

To see my full review:

Perhaps the darkest novel of The Mephisto Covenant series to date, Trinity Faegen once again captivates readers as she tackles the very raw topic of abuse. Mariah, biological sister to Jordan (who is the heroine of the second novel, The Mephisto Kiss), takes the forefront in this third installment, allowing readers to connect with her on a much more personal level as the story delves deeper into her life, unleashing the scars of her p

First thing I would say about this book is that the series matured with this book. I am not saying this because it deals with sexual abuse, but because I say a marked improvement in the writing of the book too. The protagonists are Mariah and Phoenix - and the book is written in their perspectives. Though both contribute well to the storyline, I felt Mariah's POV was more challenging and had much more depth while Phoenix was just more of whether I should make her my Mephisto or not.

So I requested this book from NetGalley ages ago and for some reason I kept pushing it back and reading other book in its place. Why? Who knows? My brain is a dark and winding maze that is best left unexplored. So I finally decided to read it and “just get it off my TBR list.” I really don’t know why after I requested the book I decided I wouldn’t like it (see, the workings of a weird brain).

So I read this book that’s been in my TBR pile for months and I’m sure I’m going to hate and while I’m r

I saw this book on Netgalley and my thought process went like this;

1.I've heard of Memphisto Covenant before from somewhere.
2.Wonder what it's about.
3.What the hell I'll just request it.

I was pleasantly surprised to seen it had been approved so quickly and immediately started reading it. I normally have reservations about books involving religions especially when it concerns with god/angels/Lucifer etc. etc.

I'm not a Christian so I don't understand about the workings of God and heaven vs. Lucife

I absolutely love these books by Trinity Faegen. She is great at telling a romance love story with an alpha-dog male as a lead role. This is the third book in the series. The Mephisto brothers are the sons of Mephistopheles who is known in German folklore as a demon or the devil. In this series their father is the gatekeeper of Hell. The only way for the Mephisto brothers to enter Heaven and be redeemed is if they find their one true love, and actually fall in love with her. Trinity is picking o ...more

I read The Mephisto Covenant a few years ago and loved it so I was so glad to have the opportunity to read The Mephisto Mark. I have always been intrigued by Phoenix so I couldn't wait to finally be able to read his book!

Trinity Faegen is such a talented writer. The way she can take this confusing mythology and turn it into something that is easily understandable is amazing. Since it's been a few years since I have been in this world, it was nice to be re-introduced to it, without having informa

Let me start by saying that this is the worst book I've ever read and I thought that title went to TFH but compared to this TFH is amazing. Warning for all you die-hard fans, you might want to steer clear of this review. I've been waiting for this book for about a year now only to be severely let down. The whole book takes place during Key and Jordan's story which was a mistake--Phoenix and Mariah didn't even get their own story! The two just spent the whole book whining about how they were unde ...more

2 1/2 Stars! I have a lot of thoughts on this book, which is a good thing. Me thinking about a book means the author did her job. I really like the story and the world building.
The female main character Mariah was likeable and I totally felt for her plight. The main male character Phoenix was hot but I didn't really like him. I like my male characters to be more decisive and less winy-baby.
The book had a lot of pacing issues and it was so slow at times that I considered just stopping. I didn't

The Mephisto Covenant Series has a mythology that is interesting and fun and feels entirely its own. I've always loved books that are of the "good vs. evil" variety, particularly when there is an opportunity for the 'bad guys' to be redeemed and that is one of the reasons why I am so attracted to this series. The series is written around a group of brothers, The Mephisto, that are basically trying to keep one bad guy from becoming strong enoug
First I would like to take a moment to thank Pink Publishing, LLC for granting g me the privilege of reading an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. The fact that I received the book for free in no way impacts the content of my review. This book actually rates a 3.5 for me, but closer to 4 than 3, so I rounded up.

This book deals with domestic abuse, pedophilia, and rape, so please be forewarned that this is intended for a more mature audience.

Often, by book three there are a number of problems that are starting to surface. I begin to anticipate the "jump the shark" moment. The cracks in the overall story arc start to be visible.

Notes: As a personal belief I think you can read Only You as two options.
1) Before reading Only You, read The Mephisto Covenant: The Redemption of Ajax (Book 1) and The Mephisto Kiss (Book 2) (I highly recommend reading the first two books. You won’t regret it)
2)However if you want to just read Only You, I strongly suggest you read the Mephisto Lexicon so you won’t get lost in the terminology. You can read it on Stephanie Feagan’s website:

I like the fact that it seemed to be targeting -talking about- abuse victims but the way it was written... Mariah seemed like a child (to me)...? I don't know if because of her abuse of her child she suppressed so much- or something- that her thoughts stayed child like but I didn't really like it but besides that and that it seemed more like a filler- happened at same time Jordans story was happening so nothing mich happened, not really- then anything it was pretty interesting.

I was having trouble getting started with the book, if it was because I was in a reading slumber or it was because the book in the beginning was boring, i don't know but I through the book I begin to like it more. And at the last 50 page I had a hard time at putting the book away.

I like how the story between Mariah and Phoenix how slow it is in the beginning and how she slowly over comes her past with the help from Phoenix and some of the others. And also how Phoenix, with the of Mariah changes

In the new book in the series we follow another Anabo.
Her challenges are harder to overcome and more traumatic than the once before.
The book is way better written and done than the previous two.
It really surprised me how much I loved the book.
I want to experience so much more from this series.

Now you may remember me mentioning The Mephisto Covenant series before. In fact, one of my favorites of 2013 turned out to be The Mephisto Kiss, the sequel to The Mephisto Covenant. Now just a little disclaimer about me—I'm all about giving books a second chance, specifically books in a series where the potential to grow is always there. That's how it was with my first taste of Faegan's world; it definitely could've been much better, but I saw the possibilities it could pull off should

You guys, The Mephisto Mark was beyond amazing.  I've thoroughly enjoyed each one of the Mephisto books so far, and they seriously just keep getting better. I've loved Trinity Faegen's writing style and the whole Mephisto world she's created. I'd be lying if I said I didn't freak out and fangirl a little when I was approved for the eBook on NetGalley.

I was fairly excited to read this book! I had picked up the first two books in this series and the mythology has me intrigued. But there were some issues I had with it as well. For one, I was kind of disappointed by the fact that the story overlapped with the last book, The Mephisto Kiss. I felt like it was bit of taking the easy way out, using that on the readers. It was sucky, because for a new heroine I wanted a completely new story. And yet, I suppose it was also good in way because it shows ...more

The Mephisto Mark is the third book in ‘The Mephisto Covenant’ and definitely my favourite so far. This book also runs alongside book 2 so they are happening in the almost simultaneously. In ‘The Mephisto Kiss’ (book 2) we meet our leading lady, Mariah who is Jordan’s sister and we find out a little about her, we know her story is sad but we don’t know just how tragic it really was for the sister who gave up e
