Well, well, well. Another winner from S.J. Day in her ‘Marked’ series, “Eve of Destruction” packs plenty of mystery, action, hot lust, and suspense into 414 pages of reading pleasure. I would caution readers NOT to try and begin the trilogy with this story, book two. Instead, go ahead and splurge–cough up the seven bucks and hang on for the ride.
Book two picks up right where “Eve of Darkness” left off–Eve has been toasted (literally!) by a dragon. But it seems she has some information Heaven needs, so even though she should be dead…she’s alive. Eve is pretty sure her growing feelings for Cain and Abel of Biblical infamy also had something to do with her current state, but she’s not about to argue about it! Now it’s time for newly ‘marked’ Eve to head to training camp and learn how to battle the forces of Evil. What she actually runs into is death, mayhem, dislike, jealousy, mental menage, and ah yes…destruction. There are quite a few stunning surprises, and I can hardly bear to wait another twelve days to get my hands on book three.
This is one kick-a$$ series. The plot is still unfolding, although the reader isn’t left hanging. Eve is still torn between the brothers, but there are some big changes in the relationships. It’s also cool to find out more about S.J. Day’s angels and where each fits into the scheme of things in her world. I honestly can’t find anything unflattering to say about this story. Maybe a little more sex…but what there is, is definitely smokin’. There’s no dead spots, no jerky transitions, and no halt to the plot. “Eve of Destruction” is simply another riveting read.
