The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen

3 out of 5 stars

I don't usually read YA because it's too, for lack of a better word, soft. Even though it centered around 17 year-old Sasha and a lot of it took place in a high school I still liked it. Sasha's struggle with her faith, her family, and her growing attraction for Jax made for an interesting read. The concept of the hero seeking redemption and there being only one girl in the entire world who can help has been done countless times, but the mythology behind this story was what made it different. I believe there will be a book for each brother and I'm actually looking forward to reading them.

The six sons of Mephistopheles has been charged with rounding up the lost souls on earth. During one such take down Jax finds his Anabo. An Anabo is the light to his dark or his soul mate. After her mother is sent back to Russia she is sent to live with her aunt and uncle, who she has never met. After finding lost souls in her aunt and cousin she gets help from Jax and his brothers. At first she only sees the darkness in him, but soon realizes there is more to him. Soon they embark on a mission to save others from selling their souls while trying to keep hers intact.
