Review: The Mephisto Covenant

Title: The Mephisto Covenant
Author: Trinity Faegan
Publisher: EgmontUSA
Publication Date: September 27, 2011
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal
"If the Mephisto can earn love and return it selflessly,
God promises peace in their angry, restless souls.
The caveat: Only the Ananbo, decendants of the daughter of Eve,
Are pure enough of spirit to love a son of hell...."

From Goodreads:
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?
My thoughts
Great book.  I think I like most of the books I read though!  I really enjoyed Sasha and Jax.  Jax must keep Sasha protected from his oldest brother Eryx.  Sasha is Anabo.  This means she is pure, kind, and will automatically get into heaven.  Jax is a son of Hell but he can get redemption through the Mephisto Covenant.  Anabos are rare and it is a huge thing that Jax is demon hunting and finds Sasha at a meeting to gain followers for Eryx.  He realizes she is Anabo even though she doesn't know.  He was the first to her so to put it bluntly - he has dibs on her (: but it is her decision to give up her mortality and join Jax forever.  A great love story, full of suspense, and action. Jax's brother are amazing and sooo funny.  I can's wait to read about them finding the loves of their lives and their redemption.
