Summary: Sasha is desperate to find out who murdered her father. When getting the answer means pledging her soul to Eryx, she unlocks a secret that puts her in grave danger—she is an Anabo, a daughter of Eve, and Eryx’s biggest threat.

A son of Hell, immortal, and bound to Earth forever, Jax looks for redemption in the Mephisto Covenant—God’s promise he will find peace in the love of an Anabo. After a thousand years, he’s finally found the girl he’s been searching for: Sasha.

With the threat of Eryx always looming, Jax knows he has to keep Sasha safe and win her over. But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?

Review: The Mephisto Covenant was an iffy, but good, start to a series with some unique mythology.

I instantly loved the mythology in The Mephisto Covenant. It combines Hell, Heaven, good, evil, Adam and Eve. It was a truly successful combination of all of those elements.

I did like the characters, yet at sometimes they were extreme good or extreme evil. It didn't feel like there was a lot of middle ground with the characters. Sasha, while a nice girl, was just too nice. But I did love Jax....especially with all his sunglasses and trench coats.

His brothers stood out as well and I can't wait to see whose featured in the next book.

While The Mephisto Covenant was a little hard to get into I, admittedly, got addicted to his 400 some page tomb.

Like I said, some things were a little iffy but overall The Mephisto Covenant will stand out because of its awesome mythology and, well, there was some seriously hot boys.

Rating: 3.5 stars

I loved the mythology, too! The Mephisto Covenant was iffy for me, too, though; the insta-love was off-putting. =/ Thanks for the review, Katie! :)

I really couldn't get into this one! I think it's because it reminded me too much of Katie MacAllister's Dark Ones series (adult). Oh well -- you liked it, that's what counts! :)
