Waiting on Wednesday: The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen

“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.

Welcome to another Waiting on Wednesday post! It seemed like there were so many books to choose from this week! Here’s my pick:

Title & Author: The Mephisto Covenant: The Redemption of Ajax by Trinity Faegen

Genre: YA- Fantasy

Publication Date: September 27, 2011

Description: “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?”

Why I’m Stoked: Incorporating religion into Fantasy YA fiction is not something that I’ve seen a lot of, and I was immediately interested in reading this unique story! The premise reminds me a bit of The Goddess Test, so I’m curious to see how it will compare.
