Review: Eve of Destruction (Marked #2) by S.J. Day


Class is in, but Evangeline Hollis is struggling to get through the requisite training to be a full-fledged Mark. When her class goes on a field trip to an abandoned military base, passing the course isn’t just a matter of pride…it’s a matter of life and death. There’s a demon hidden among them, killing off Eve’s classmates one by one.

As the body count mounts, a ragtag team of cable TV ghost hunters unwittingly stumbles into the carnage. Now keeping the Mark system secret competes with the need to keep the “paranormal researchers” alive. With Cain on assignment and Abel on an investigation, Eve must fly solo on her hunt to stop a killer before he strikes again.

My Review:

In Eve of Destruction by S.J. Day, the second installment of the Marked Series, we find Evangline or Eve Hollis who didn't expect to be Marked six weeks ago, but that's exactly what happened. She is Alec Cain's apple or temptation he couldn't resist when she was eighteen years old and now.

Cain is from the Bible, the original Mark, and along with his brother Reed Abel, who is mal'akh and Eve's handler.

Raguel is an archangel with a hidden agenda that includes keeping both Cain and Abel under his command in the Mark system thru Eve. Archangels are given their full celestial powers for one week out of the year and Raguel has his. He plans to use the time to get Eve to trust him more than both famous brothers before the week is out. Eve doesn't trust or have faith in Raguel and God because she's agnostic, yet she can't relate her new image of Raguel with his secular image.

Eve and her fellow Marks are going to a military base called Fort McCloskey for their additional training. Eve feels isolated from the rest of the trainees partly because of her relationship with Cain, who is also her untrained mentor thru the Marked System, and thru Raguel making her be teacher's pet. Eve has an uneasy feeling about the upcoming training session on the military base that she can't shake and on top of that, she's feeling sick, but Raguel denies this fact like he does everything else.

Reed and another mal'akh Mariel are investigating unknown Infernal who are killing experienced Marks. They go to Australia to meet the handler of the Mark that was killed and discover disturbing evidence about the killings. Yet the archangels are notorious for their infighting amongst themselves and now is not the time for this.

Meanwhile back at the military base, unexpected things are happening which sets Eve on edge even more so than before. What kind of game is Raguel playing? What is killing powerful Marks? What is really going on with Eve? Can this new Infernal be found? Can Reed and Alec protect Eve? Your answers await you in Eve of Destruction.
