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.
This series is highly addicting and it’s not just her writing. It’s also the characters and their relationships. I also love the fact that each book is a stand-a-lone. You necessarily don’t need to read them in order because the author recaps everything in one go. It can be quite repetitive, but I find that it clarifies everything quite nicely. Lovely writing and even if I was just waiting for that climatic ending, I still enjoyed it.
Jordan and her love interest sure entertained me. They’re both super stubborn and I love both of them together. They challenged one another that’s for sure. So far out of all the Anabo love interests, Jordan is my favourite. She’s smart, independent and never backs down from a fight. I’m glad to see more of the characters’ personalities as well. I really want a book about Eryx! And Ty because he loves animals so much.
I’m so sad it wasn’t picked up by the publishers, but also really the author decided to self-publish. I’ve bought the third and fourth books and they’re waiting to be read in my Kindle app. Bottom line, if you love romance that is similar to J. R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series, you’ll love The Mephisto Covenant series as well!
