Books: The Cheapest Vacation You Can Buy

{October 31, 2012}   {Review} The Mephisto Kiss by Trinity Faegen (The Mephisto Covenant #2)

From Goodreads: The eyes never lie. No one’s eyes are darker than Eryx. Not even the Devil’s.

When Jax and Sasha first see Jordan Ellis, they know she is no ordinary teenager. She’s the daughter of the President after all, but she’s also Anabo – a descendant of Eve.

What they don’t know is that Eryx plans to kidnap Jordan and force President Ellis to pledge his soul. If Eryx’s plot succeeds, the consequences would be catastrophic.

But the Mephisto brothers do know about Jordan’s secret identity. And for one of them, she could be the match that leads to their soul’s salvation.

Now it’s a desperate race against time to save Jordan and prevent Eryx’s haunting eyes from discovering her true identity.

A thrilling story of romance, danger, and intrigue, THE MEPHISTO KISS continues the marvelous mythology that began in THE MEPHISTO COVENANT.


I love, love, love, this book!  The series has turned out to be amazing, and I am in awe of Faegen’s sheer writing abilities!  She is so creative and her novels quickly enrapture the reader; I read this in one sitting because it is that good!  If you haven’t started the series, trust me, you need to read this!

One of the aspects that I love so much about the series, and this novel in general, is that it follows a different male lead in each book.  In The Mephisto Covenant, we met Jax and learned everything through his eyes.  He’s exceptionally dreamy and I was in love.  In The Mephisto Kiss, it’s Kryos’ (Key) story, and though he has a lot of issues, and I do mean a lot, so does Jordan, his intended Anabo, and their banter and interactions throughout the novel make this fictional tale seem so real.  I can’t imagine being in Jordan’s shoes… not only is she the president’s daughter, but she undergoes a very life-threatening ordeal only to be whisked away and learn that her long time boyfriend is severely injured, that her father believes her dead, and that she’s an Anabo destined to live on a mountain, take down demons, and never set foot in her old life again.  At times, I thought Jordan was being a bit childish, but then I’d step back and go through all the steps of her ordeal again, and then I’d think that Key was actually being childish… I flip-flopped allegiances so many times in this love story that it isn’t even funny, but it made me love the story all the more.  Especially with the climactic ending… I was screaming, and I do me screaming at the characters, crying, sniffling, the whole nine yards.  Faegen really can spin a tale, keeping the reader glued to the pages as the suspense and sheer terror of it all rises.  And, Faegen write characters so in depth that you feel everything they do…  I’m already on pins and needles for the next installment! Pick this series up, seriously, you won’t be disappointed!  Five stars!
