    A delicious little treat. Did I enjoy this book: I love Mariah;

    A delicious little treat.

    Did I enjoy this book: I love Mariah; she’s remarkably written, and it was Mariah that kept me reading. She’s a broken, tough little thing, and I admire her strength. She’s the victim of sexual abuse, which is a difficult, heartbreaking topic, and Faegan tackles it respectfully and honestly—even posting a warning at the beginning of the book that it may disturb readers who have experienced abuse.

    I liked the concept well enough: it’s another version of the eternal Good versus Evil struggle, only this time there’s a half-devil pack of delicious-looking brothers who go around smiting people (and they’re the good guys!). Add to the mix some Immortals, some Souls stuck in Purgatory, a new and different version of Hell, and of course, a love story, and you’ve got the gist. The concept isn’t new, but Faegan’s twists make it feel that way.

    There was only one little thing that annoyed me. I thought I could get past it, I really did. Again, I even like the concept. But it festered. Faegan not only updated the God versus Devil tale, she also updated the language said figures use. I get it—it’s easier for readers to relate to characters who speak the same way they do, and it certainly adds a layer of humanity, but. Well. For some reason I just can’t picture Lucifer telling anyone to “Man up,” no matter what the circumstances. I expected Mariah to use modern lingo, but it just didn’t ring true for me that the immortals spent as much time studying pop culture as they did trying to save souls from eternal damnation. I mean, *I* describe things as ‘epic,’ but it just seemed weird that a thousand-year-old-son-of-Mephistopheles would do the same.

    This is the first book in the series I’ve read, so perhaps one of the first two books explains the language thing. I finished the book in a day, so I guess the slang didn’t annoy me as much as the thought of cleaning my kitchen. Ultimately, it was a delicious little Saturday treat.

    Would I recommend it: Sure. If you’re into seriously hot anti-heroes who spend their time reading romance novels to their soul mates while also trying to save the world, you’ll enjoy The Mephisto Mark.

    Will I read it again: Probably not.
