“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—Sasha is 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 looming, Jax has to keep Sasha safe and win her over. But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?”

One thing I loved about this book is the great paranormal elements in it. Ms. Faegen took the tale of Adam and Eve and weaved it into a great story to read. As you begin reading this book, the reader is captivated by the strong characters as well as the plot line.
The characters in this book I loved. Why? Because they are strong. Really strong voices that just scream in your face. It’s hard not too see the characters or fall into them. I really loved how the characters grew with the reader in learning all the secrets of the Mephisto Covenant.

Another thing I enjoyed about this book is the great back round history to it. I love it when a book can not only pull you with the amazing characters, but also with the great history to the characters. Learning the secrets along with Sasha, made me feel excited. I loved the history of Adam and Eve. The biblical elements in this book just totally rocked. Very good and very creative!

The love interest of the story I liked. I would have love to see more of them spending time together. I do however love the passion that is between them. Very tense and very loving. There is a very descriptive love scene in the book. I would recommend this book for 18+.

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!

    The love scene in this book surprised me, I had to remind myself that it was a YA book! I loved the world in this one, I thought it was really interesting and while I had a few problems with the characters, I will still be continuing this series because I want to know what happens next!
