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?
I wasn't sure what to expect going into this book. I'd heard it was like Twilight, I heard it was full of cliches, I heard it was just horrible. And this is why I try to avoid reviews before I read a book. Because I didn't agree.
I liked Sasha and Jax and I liked them together. They worked together. They weren't outstanding, fabulous characters, but they weren't anything special. They were average characters. However, I DID love the mythology the characters were a part of. That was really cool and unique.
The beginning of the story was kind of unbelievable. Some reactions just weren't right and the whole story was a bit off for a little while. But the the story picked up and was full of action. I was totally hooked on figuring out what would happen. There was lots of twists and turns and the writing really sucked me in. I couldn't sit down to read for just a few minutes, I had to sit down and dedicate a good chunk of time to reading it.
Like I mentioned, I like Sasha and Jax as a couple. They had good chemistry and they were kind of adorable together. I did not see the insta-love I've seen some people talk about. There was an instant attraction between the two, but definitely not love.
If you're in the mood for a good paranormal romance, this is something different and really good. It's not just a new Twilight. I definitely recommend this one.
