3.0 out of 5 stars What's an agnostic to do if she's chosen by God 30 July 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Eve of Destruction is the second in S. J. Day's Marked series, featuring the adventures of Eve Hollis, a young woman chosen by God to bear the Mark of Cain and become one of His soldiers on Earth, hunting and killing Infernals - demons dwelling on Earth - while also having to deal with the consequences of being desired by, and having her own strong feelings for, the brother's Cain and Abel, each of whom also serves God in his own way: Cain as Eve's mentor, and the most skilled and fearsome Mark; and Abel as a handler, supervising Marks, including Eve, and sending them on missions.

The book takes up at the point where the first in the series, Eve of Darkness, left off, with Eve being resurrected after dying while vanquishing a dragon in a restroom at a baseball game. She has little time for recuperation, however, as Raguel, the archangel to whom she is assigned, has scheduled some field training for the novice Marks under his command, wanting to take advantage of the brief few weeks of the year that he is allowed to use his angelic powers on Earth freely.

So, Eve has no choice but to join with a group of misfit sinners - for all Marks are damned souls doing God's will in order to earn redemption - most of whom resent her for her connection to Cain, and travel to a mostly derelict army base in northern California for some hands on experience in Infernal hunting. This separates her from Cain, who is tasked with killing the alpha werewolf ultimately responsible for Eve's death in the previous book, and from Abel, who has problems of his own, needing to identify a mysterious new type of Infernal capable of consuming even the most experienced Marks.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I wanted it to be..... 7 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I expected more of everything, more character development, more in-depth storyline more details about the love story between Cain and Eve.
I am disappointed but I will read the other Marked stories and gives my complete opinion after.
