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.
Recently, I have refrained from giving out 5-star reviews. Some books sort of…wash over me and I forget about them shortly after reading them. Few books leave an impact and make me want to beg for more….but The Mephisto Kiss is definitely NOT one of those books.
*Insert Glass Box of Emotion Here*
I was SO in love with The Mephisto Covenant’s Sasha and Ajax….in this book readers get a new story with familiar characters. This time it is big brother Key (Kyros) that gets his time in the spotlight and a shot at an Anabo, Jordan. The characters are so easy to love, but they are broken and as a reader, I wanted them to fix each other so badly. There is so much emotion, so much action, suspense…you name it. The author let me know that I was the second…SECOND person to review this book, and I am absolutely honored. Another reader and I agreed that we needed MORE Mephisto magic!!
The mythology that Faegen uses and recreates…the world within the world we know that she has built is so intricate and carefully constructed. The blend between the real world and Mephisto Mountain is seamless. I have come to absolutely ADORE the characters and the stories for the brothers are the types of stories where you can’t help but root for the sons of Hell to succeed in finding redemption.
I wanted to add a note of caution to younger readers. I wouldn’t recommend this book to readers younger than 16 or 17 because of some of the sexual references, however, I am in my mid-twenties and absolutely LOVE this series. I HIGHLY recommend this series/book to anyone who loves angels, fallen angels, romantic paranormal or supernatural sub-genres!! I can’t wait for more of this series!
