The Mephisto Kiss by Trinity Faegen

Summary: 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. (Summary from

My Thoughts:

This story was a roller coaster of emotions. From the first page you are sucked right into the story and from there on there is never a dull moment. Kyros (Key) was one of the brothers from the first book that really intrigued me and I was thrilled to get to read his story. Always known as the brother that keeps everyone and himself in line, it was wonderful to see another side to him. Key has to earn Jordan's love, instead of one of those instant connections and so it really allowed you to also fall in love with both of them along the way. 

Eryx also plays a much bigger role in this story and with that comes many complications. You get to see just how deceitful Eryx can be. The way he plays on Key's warring emotions for him and Jordan's wanting to help those she loves had me hating him even more as the story progressed. Then just when you think the story is going to end all nice and neat, you come to the realization that this could end very badly and it had me praying for Kyros and Jordan. Jordan is a very complex character. This whole world of lost souls is new to her, so I understand that she feels all this guilt and other strong emotions, but at the end I wanted to strangler her. I can't believe she actually fell for it! Thankfully Kyros is an amazing man that loves Jordan and would do anything for her!

Overall this was a great book. I could have used some more time when it was just Kyros and Jordan, but other than that there are no complaints here. I loved that we got to see so much of Sash and Jax in this book! It made my day! I also loved how Eryx played a bigger part of the story, instead of just being this ominous secretive character that is talked about but rarely seen. 

Rating: 4 Stars!
