Review: Eve of Darkness (Marked #1) by S.J. Day


Cursed by God, hunted by demons, desired by Cain and Abel... All in a day's work.

For Evangeline Hollis, a long ago fling with a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks just became a disaster of biblical proportions. One night with a leather-clad man of mystery has led to a divine punishment: the Mark of Cain.

Thrust into a world where sinners are drafted into service to kill demons, Eve’s learning curve is short. A longtime agnostic, she begrudgingly maneuvers through a celestial bureaucracy where she is a valuable but ill-treated pawn. She’s also become the latest point of contention in the oldest case of sibling rivalry in history...

But she’ll worry about all that later. Right now she’s more concerned with learning to kill while staying alive. And saving the soul she’d never believed she had.

My Review:

Evangeline (Eve) Hollis is an interior decorator going to interview for her dream job at Gadara, but instead finds herself having hot sex with a virtual stranger and branded in the process. Eve doesn't know what to think especially when that stranger, Alec Cain (who has ruined her for every male relationship since their one wild night together), appears on her doorstep. 

Alec calls Eve his Angel and tells her that she's about to be very sick and he wants to help her. Eve refuses to believe him, let alone trust him. But when his predictions come true, Eve reluctantly allows Alec to help her. Alec Cain (also known as Cain from the Bible) is Marked just like Eve, who happens to be Agnostic, and tells her that it's now her job to fight the Inferals.

Eve still doesn't believe him until she is attacked by a tengu and a Nix. But that’s not all - where there is Cain there also is also Reed Abel (also known as Abel from the Bible). Together, the two most famous brothers of the Bible fight over the same woman, Eve. Eve is stunned by this and vows not to be their new toy to fight over.

Alec is an experienced Mark used to working alone, but is now Eve's mentor much to Reed's dismay. Alec and Eve are sent out on a mission by Raguel (an archangel who is the leader of the Marked) before Eve has had any proper training to discover what is going on with the tengu infestation. Something is killing Marks before they have a chance to call for backup and there is no trace of what is killing them.

Can Alec and Reed get along? What about Eve's feelings for Alec? Can Alec really help Eve? What is Raguel up too? Who or what is killing Marks? Your answers await in Eve of Darkness.
