"the Marked series continues with plenty of action"
In the continuing story of the Marked series, we find our
heroine, Eve Hollis, startled to discover that she's just
risen from the dead -- literally. Having been killed by a
demon in book one, somehow someone decided to give her
another chance in life. Not that it makes her life any
easier, mind you. She's still Marked (which means she
still carries the Mark of Cain and is working for Jehovah
in killing demons who roam the mortal plain), she's still
trying to survive relentless demon attacks, and she's still
caught up in a most unenviable love triangle between her,
and perhaps the two most infamous siblings of all-time --
Cain and Abel.
Once Eve recovers from her brush with death, she is sent
off to officially begin her training to become a full-
fledged Mark. When the archangel Raguel takes the class on
a weeklong trip to an abandoned military base, training
doesn't go quite as well as expected. Eve's classmates are
being killed off one-by-one and the unthinkable happens --
an archangel goes missing and is presumed dead. To top
things off, a group of young college paranormal
investigators show up unannounced at the base and Eve is
determined to keep them safe. With evil walking amongst
them and separated from her mentors and sometimes lovers,
Cain and Abel, it's up to Eve to bring the remaining group
home safe and sound.
As the second book in S.J. Day's Marked series, Eve of
Destruction continues along the same vein as book one
with plenty of action, strong characters, and a touch of
humor that all adds up to one fantastic read.

When you're learning to hunt demons, homework can be hell...
Class is in, but Evangeline Hollis is far from being the star pupil. She's struggling to get through the required training to be a full-fledged Mark -- one of thousands of sinners forced to hunt demons for God. When her class goes on a week-long field trip to an abandoned military base, passing the course suddenly 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 rises, a ragtag team of ghost hunters from a cable TV program 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 investigating a new, terrifying class of demon, Eve must fly solo on her hunt to stop a killer before he strikes again.
