The Mephisto Covenant: The Redemption of Ajax

Isn't it pretty?  I love this cover!

The Mephisto Covenant: The Redemption of Ajax by Trinity Faegen is a book that surprised and delighted me.

The 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—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?

The concept, centered around a group of dark men in need of redemption is reminiscent of J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood, a very adult paranormal series.  And like Ward's series, this book does not back away from sex.  This book is not for younger readers of YA, but for the rest of us, um, yeah, it's pretty hot.

Jax is a great hero, with just the right amount of mystery and flaws.  Sasha has a unique character arc that I can't reveal without spoiling the plot, but is fun to watch it unfold once you understand what's happening and how that influences her actions.  And while it's not surprising that Jax does find his redemption (not a spoiler-it's in the title) there are plenty of twists along the way. 

This book is expected to hit shelves September 27, and it's the perfect book to curl up with as the air turns cool in October.

*Per FTC rules, I received this ARC after I requested it from the publisher.


What a beautiful cover! And it sounds as good as it looks. I'll have to check this one out. Thanks ladies!

It is a pretty cover.

I have this theory that publishers insist on having the models wear pretty dresses and gowns during the shoots for YA novels.

Okay, maybe it's just a trend.

But think about it, think about the models featured on the covers of Matched, After Obsession, Shattered Souls, Unearthly, Passion, Wither..

You get the idea.

The Mephisto Covenant sounds pretty steamy but all the better for me! Haha.

The cover is amazing, and such a unique plotline! Mayhaps i will have to buy it when it comes out and see for myself...

Zoe, The Girl in the Steel Corset is another one with a pretty dress. I do like them, they're all flowy and they anchor the image well to the book frame (that's me trying to sound artsy).

Talia, what are FTC Rules?
