Eve of Destruction (Marked #2)
Class is in, but Evangeline Hollis is struggling to get through the requisite training to be a full-fledged Mark. When her class goes on a field trip to an abandoned military base, passing the course 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 mounts, a ragta

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
Die Triquetra symbolisiert die Verbindung von Alec, Reed und Eve. Betrachtet man das Symbol, lassen sich einerseits drei ovale Bestandteile erkenne, dennoch sind diese als eine Einheit miteinander verbunden, genau so, wie die Protagonisten im Buch. Im Vergleich zum ersten Band, wurde das Symbol durch einen Kreis aus Schlangen erweitert, welche sich durch die Triquetra schlängeln und sich gegenseitig in den Schwanz beißen. Die Erweiterung veranschaulicht sehr gut, die Entwicklung der Protag ...more
Die 28 Jährige Evangeline Hollis ist eine Dämonenjägerin als sie vor 6 Wochen das Kainsmal erhalten hat und versucht sich nicht umbringen zu lassen, was bei der Meute an Dämonen, Drachen und Werwölfen und vielen mehr nicht einfach ist.
Aber noch viel weniger einfach ist das Verhältnis zu Alec Cain, der nicht nur ihr Mentor ist sondern auch ihr Freund. Warum das Problematische sein sollte,?
Nun ja es ist Alec Cain wie aus der Bibel und sein Bruder Abel Reed. Beide rufen ungeahnte G ...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
Eve leaves her sick bed to go to slayer camp with her boss's boss and her class of Marks to get more experience and training.
While Eve followed Cain's advice and used her 'gut instinct' to survive the intense train ...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
Depois da iniciação de Eve à sua nova vida e à guerra constante que se trava entre os irmãos Abel e Caim, a nossa heroína vem uma vez mais comprovar que é um íman para o caos, para a confusão.
Ou será que ela apenas tem noção do perigo que corre desde que estes dois pedaços de mau caminho entraram na sua vida?
Será Eve um peão nas mãos de Caim e Abel ou o instrumento mortal da sua desgraça?
Se depois de tudo o que Eve passou no primeiro livro pensávamos que as ...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
Gadara is up in the training rotation just as it ...more
Admito que não tenho muito mais a dizer sobre este livro, porque vamos ser sinceros... A história não varia assim tanto do primeiro. Claro que é um excelente livro e prendeu-me do início ao fim, mas não tem uma história muito diferente do normal. Melhor, não tem assim nada de muito diferente do primeiro livro. Se gostaram do primeiro volume da série, sem dúvida alguma que irão adorar este livro, mas não esperem nada de outro mundo.

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
