**Warning - contains spoilers if you haven't read book 2**

The adventures of Eve Hollis continue as things begin to heat up in the battle between good and evil. Eve, a new "Mark" whose soul hangs in balance is attempting to earn redemption by reluctantly working for God; a being she doesn't particular respect or even like, whilst trying to untangle her immensely complicated love life. The man she truly loves Cain has now attained Archangel status (leaving him capable of only loving God) whilst her attraction to his brother Abel is deepening into something far more than just a casual fling.

Eve finds herself in deeper trouble than usual after Satan places a bounty on her head for killing his Hell Hound. Soon every Infernal (demon) imaginable is hunting Eve and the only person seemingly able to get her out of this mess is none other than Satan himself.

Again the plot line is a whirlwind of action. Eve is determined to rescue Raguel from the clutches of Satan, whereas Cain appears willing to believe him dead rather than cede his new Archangel status. Abel is negotiating for his own promotion, whilst everyone is noting the change in Cain as he struggles to contain a growing darkness inside him, a darkness which raises some very interesting questions. Adam and Eve stop by, wanting to meet the woman both their sons have fallen in love with, whilst any of Eve's friends, family or even casual acquaintances may be targeted at any time by a vengeful Infernal.

The complexities of the relationship between the three leading lovers (aggravated by the fact that although pre-archangel Cain and Abel both love Eve, they hate each other intensely) are never overwhelmed by the rollercoaster plot line; as both Infernals and the supposed good guys working for God are all prepared to engage in treacherous acts in a never ending game of one-upmanship. I initially thought the "Marked" series was intended as a trilogy; however thankfully SJD has further novels planned. The ending of "Eve of Chaos" is a huge cliff hanger, so much so in fact that I'm left rather incensed that no further books are currently available, and worse still, no future release dates are mentioned on SJD's website.

This book is un-put-down-able, from start to finish. It's got action, romance and hotness, in the form of both Cain and Able. How Eve can choose between them, I don't know! ...It is very well written and the angels, archangels and demons are all as believable as the main characters (who are also angels, archangels and a Mark). I totally recommend this third book of the Marked series.

Ahhhh I did't want it to end but it did. Don't want to spoil it for those who have yet to read it but I sooooooo want to know who the guy is on the last page. Sylvia you have left me wanting more. I've read this series so quickly because I wanted to know what was going to happen that I'm now going to re-read at a more leisurely pace as I'm sure I've missed bits out.

I enjoyed the story line and the twists and turns along the way but feel that I missed some of the story out as it refers to things in the book that you know nothing about leaving you feeling as if there should be another book to fill in the gaps.

Disappointing 3rd book in the saga. The story-line between Eve & the brothers is not further developed.
This is a pale & uninteresting continuation of something that started out very promising.

I liked this book because of the supernatural touches,and the intertwined love story. Definitely worth a read,but be prepared to want others in the Marked series.

Another great book by Sylvia Day.I hope she continues with the marked series. I love the characters. It's a novel way to look at the biblical story.
