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!
