Eve of Darkness: She’s tough, she’s sexy, but best of all, she’s smart

Eve of Darkness by S.J. Day

Welcome to S.J. Day's California, where demons walk among us, unbeknownst to all but a few chosen souls. These chosen souls are the "Marks," so named because they bear the Mark of Cain. Personally recruited by God to serve as demon-hunting enforcers, they gain superhuman powers and a chance to expiate their sins. The oldest, baddest mark is Cain himself. He's still a rebel with a distaste for rules, and he still doesn't get along with that brother of his.

Our heroine, Evangeline "Eve" Hollis, finds herself thrust unexpectedly into the life of a Mark after a hot elevator interlude with a man who reminds her eerily of her first love, Alec Cain.

In some ways, Eve has it easier than her colleagues; she still has a relationship with her family, and she's dating Cain, the most elite Mark of all. In other ways, she has it harder. She's going through metaphysical changes at an unprecedented rate, and her connections to Cain and Abel have put her on the radar of the top baddies. The strangeness of Eve being Marked at all is also increasingly evident in Eve of Destruction. Most of Eve's fellow Marks were murderers before being chosen. All Ev... Read More
