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 n ...more
In my opinion, this book is ten times better than Eve of Darkness, and I LOVED that book!! This book is full of drama, jealousy, action, and overall awesomeness!!
I really love that we see Eve more in this book on her own; rather than with a babysitter all of the time (ie Alec, Reed, her mother). She gets a chance to shine among ...more
I was a little worried at the beginning of Eve of Destruction. Second books in a series, particularly Urban Fantasy, sometimes feel a bit lacking to me. The world has been established. The characters have been formed. It's time to get to business. I did not feel let down at all in this installmen ...more
I love to watch things heat up between Eve and Cain and Abel. While the guys do have genuine feelings for her, they both want to use her to get ahead in their world and ...more
These characters are so unbelievable. Not just the ages-old angels and men who act like they're twenty and have absolutely no wisdom or capacity to learn, but Eve herself. I mean what ...more
Although I still find the writing to be geared towards a young adult audience, I do find the story line to be intriguing at every turn. The characters in book 2 were less "bubble gum-ish". I found them to have depth and had a ...more
The book picks up shortly after the first book ended. Eve wakes up from being dead with a lot of questions. Her Mark is in overdrive causing her a lot of problems. Furthermore she's attracted to both Alec and Reed, aka Cain and Abel. The two brothers that ...more
So I just finished book 2 and I have to tell you – I AM HOOKED. What a fantastic author Sylvia Day is!
Eve of Destruction (Marked #2) basically picks up right where Eve of Darkness (Marked #1) left off. If I remember correctly, it’s approximately 2 days later but don’t hold me to that. One of the things I didn’t mention about Eve of Darkness is that it opens with an something that happens at a sporting event then backtracks. The book follows to the story leading to the ma ...more
*Sigh* Where do I begin. Well, it picks up right where book 1 leaves off, which is a good thing. Let's see...there's Eve dating Cain (hello Freud), and Abel fighting for her attention, simply b/c Cain has her.
When Eve is off to training camp for demon hunting, things get complicated. There are wolves, glamour spells and lots of fighting. I like the fighting parts. I like the blood. What I don't like is Able. I'm really starting to hate him. He vies for Eve's att ...more

I really enjoyed Eve and Reed..I really like them together..He loosens her up and she grounds him and makes him feel...Alec took a hell of a turn in this book,not to mention the ending which left with a huge WTF?...I enjoyed every turn in the storyline...the questions..Eve's progress..She is really brilliant and a natural Mark,but I like the fact she doesn't see it from the beginning.However,in the next book,after some hunts I assume and expect ...more
Eve of Destruction continues the story of Evangeline "Eve" Hollis and her adventures as a "Mark," a sinner drafted into God's demon-hunting army. Eve isn't a typical Mark, and this becomes clearer in this volume as more Marks are introduced to the reader. 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 M ...more
Eve is going on her Marked training field trip with the archangel Raguel and some other new marks. They have their training at an abandoned military base where things take a turn for the worst. Someone in their group is a traitor and is slowly killing off the marks in the group, but who...

The continuation of the plot of Eve of Darkness was still somewhat confusing with the use of two names for the same person and as they popped in and weren’t identified by name, but a description that didn’t distinguish who it was, since the Cain and Abel brothers looked alike until someone called them by name.
Eve’s connection to both of the brothers didn’t change amidst changes happening to the brothers. The roller ...more
I didn't like the first book Eve of Darkness, but I finished it anyway thinking that I just didn't get it. And so I started book two Eve of Destruction. Was really optimistic after the first few chapters but then it kinda went downhill. I think I just still don't get it. There's so much going on and everyone's powers and abiliti ...more
If you enjoy fantasy / urban fantasy books, you can go wrong with this series. Just manage your expectations going in and know that the relationship between Eve, Cain and ...more
