Rebel of the Sands
Progress: 145/358 pages
This series is my very own YA version of J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood, only without Vampires. You have your group of boys who fight evil, and your group of woman who swoop in and save their lives. While reading, I got the same feelings I did while reading BDB series. I loved every single character in this book. No really, EVERY single one, even the villain. He's done some EVIL things, but in The Mephisto Kiss you get to see a different side to Eryx and learn a bit more about his history. He’s still sick and twisted, but this made him the perfect bad boy to me. And this also makes me want to say Damn you, Trinity, for making me fall in love with a bad guy!The Mephisto Kiss was like watching a TV show. Jordan is your main female character and from the first chapter until the end, her life was turned upside, decisions were taken from her, she was abducted, and she fell in love. I mean literally, everything she thought was real, was a lie and not once was she whiney, or did she regret anything that happened. There was nothing not to like about her.The person that Jordan ends up matched with bothered me at first, because I felt he complained a lot and put himself down a lot, but when you learn why, and who is behind it, you can’t help but go oh, no wonder. And then Boom! You're in love. I won’t mention his name because the blurb doesn’t really share who Jordan ends up saving, so I don’t want to give away any spoilers. Jax, Jax, oh dear Jax, I will never get enough of you. I actually enjoyed him a lot more in this book, than I did in The Mephisto Covenant. He got some spotlight in this book and so did his Anabo, Sasha. Trinity Faegen did an excellent job touching base about the previous book and she didn’t overly do it in the chapters. She recapped when she needed too, and kept the story moving.Needless to say, The Mephisto Kiss is my favorite book so far in this series. I don't see a third book on GoodReads, but Faegan pretty much set up the next book with Phoenix and a character, who I can't mention due to spoilers, in this book. I think Phoenix story is going to be touching and all kinds of messed up. He is so broken and holding on to his past. I am dying to see how his story plays out. Great sequel to a super entertaining series filled with sexy boys, romance, twist, betrayal and tons of action. You MUST read this series! 5 out of 5 stars!
