Eve of Darkness by SJ Day (Marked Series: Book 1)

(7.8/10) I look forward to finding out how this trilogy continues and concludes.

Cursed by God, hunted by demons, desired by Cain and Abel... All in a day's work.

It's always good to read a story about a strong female character, who although is not in control of the circumstances surrounding her strives to control her life. Evangeline Hollis is not what you would call a victim and has more than enough to deal with after being branded with the mark of Cain. She is stuck between a rock and a hard place as she struggles to come to terms with being in the middle of a biblical predicament with being the object of affection for both Cain and Abel. This is a book which is focused on Sin. And although God, angels and demons are all mentioned the lead character is an agnostic and religion (what is right and what is wrong) is not forced down your throat. Although clear distinctions are not always made, in this age what is Sin and can you be at fault when it looks like you have been set up by greater forces than yourself?

This book may not be for you if you do not want to read about sex, but this book is easy to read with a good narrative which makes you want to know how the book will end.

I look forward to finding out how this trilogy continues and concludes.
