The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a free digital copy through Net Galley.
Just a few pages in and I was already swarmed with questions which kept me reading: Who killed Sasha's father? Who are the Ravens? Who is Eryx? What the heck is going on?! The first three questions are answered by page 32, but I figured I'd give the book a chance. I'm glad I did! The author's take on Heaven and Hell was very interesting and my confusion over the different entities was quickly cleared up. The romance was a bit like Twilight, with some similar abilities, which was distracting at first. However, once things got rolling I was too engaged in the story to care.
My one criticism would be that some scenes felt very repetitive. It was like I read the same arguments and explanations between Sasha and Jax over and over. Overall, this was a pretty quick and engaging read. I'd definitely recommend it for readers who enjoy the YA paranormal genre. However, if you are offended by (or not interested in) religious themes, stay away from this one.
