Cover Reveal: The Mephisto Kiss by Trinity Faegen

Trinity Faegen‘s sequel to The Mephisto Covenant comes out September 25th from EgmontUSA!!!  We’re super excited to be a part of the cover reveal for The Mephisto Kiss which keeps up with the Mephisto brothers as they try to find the soul mates that will be their salvation. I am super excited to learn more about the brothers–I love when secondary characters get their own stories!

 For those of you who haven’t heard of The Mephisto Covenant here’s the synopsis from Goodreads:

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–she is an 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 always looming, Jax knows he has to keep Sasha safe and win her over. But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?

And you should definitely get that on your library list!  Now, onto what you actually clicked here for!

The Goddess Test by Aimée Carter

OHMIGOD!

No, really.  Besides BUY IT RIGHT NOW is all Rachel and I can think to say.  We really really really like this book.  Maybe it’s the mythology side of things or Aimée’s cool heroine or having a hero that is a total badass (and hot and sexy and Iwannamarryhimrightnow(dibs)).

Whatever it is, Aimée’s got it going on.

The Goddess Test is the start of the trilogy (and we can’t wait for the rest of it!).  It’s character driven–but not excessively so.  We spent the whole read desperately wanting to hang out with Henry (and just plain wanting him).  Well, Henry and hoping Kate’s mom never dies.

The story’s heavy on the relationships between the characters which helps generate conflict (high school mythological drama? check!), keep the reader engaged and move the plot forward.  And what a plot…

Neither of us could put the book down after starting it – you know those books you read in a day, even when you have a bunch of other stuff you should be doing? This is one of those books. The plot is equal parts romance, adventure, mystery, and challenge that keeps you on your toes.

Not to mention the guessing. Guessing what will happen, guessing what the tests are, and the best part of all, guessing which character corresponds to which Greek god! Read more…
