Publisher's Summary

From the #1 New York Times best-selling author of Bared to You

Years ago, Evangeline Hollis spent a blistering night with a darkly seductive man she can’t forget. But that evening of addictive pleasure has become a disaster of biblical proportions: She’s been branded with the Mark of Cain. Now Eve is thrust into a world where sinners are marked and drafted to kill demons. Her former one-night stand, Cain, is now her mentor - and his equally sexy brother Abel is her new boss. And Eve has become the latest point of contention in the oldest case of sibling rivalry in history.... Cursed by God, hunted by demons, desired by Cain and Abel...all in a day's work.

    I LOVE audio books! Long commute means I read a lot... thru others' voices, those who bring books to 2-dimensional life!

    "Wow, a supernaturally biblical Gideva!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Eve of Darkness to be better than the print version?

    I don't read books must - 99% audio, so moot.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the action and the interplay and subterfuge between characters.


    What does Jill Redfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She is a kick-ass Evangeline and frankly, a great voice for male characters too.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    As I listened, I thought, well, here's a pre-quel to Gideon and Eva, in a weird way.. even with Eve being Asian-American and Cain being a biker guy, I could see it... it's almost like this book got Sylvia Day to thinking, hmmmm... what if our modern day Cain was more urbane, and wealthy, and the heroine was blonde and kick ass attitude. Let's even name Gideon after the bible... adding Jill Redfield as narrator was perfect. I had been jonesing for more Sylvia Day since I finished One With You (I have heard the entire series 4 times now) and downloaded these MARKED books to bide my time till her next book emerges.


    Any additional comments?

    This series seems promising... and entertaining!! Not as much raw sex as the Crossfire series. But, there's some there!

    "Needed something new and I found it!"

    Iv read all the billionaire hottie gets sweet innocent damaged girl books....Bc that's what I like. But it can get a little old. This was a PERFECT change of pace. I really enjoy S. Day's style of writing. Also, I am a religious person so it was fun and interesting following all the parallels with the bible. I'm routing for eve and Cain! Can't wait to start the next book.....Now!

    "Great listen"

    Jill Redfield is my favorite narrator and can make anything good!
    Story is a little confusing at first, but once you catch on its a lot of fun and quite sexy. I'm curious to see where it goes from here.

    "Not Interesting - at all!!"

    This read didn't do anything for me. I couldn't get passed Chapter 2. So really don't waste your credit on this one.

    Story
    "I wanted to return,,, tricks I won' fall for again"
    Would you try another book from Sylvia Day and/or Jill Redfield?

    You feel like there is a story before this story and again, she has an unfinished story. Queen of unfinished story. I will not buy another book by her.


    What could Sylvia Day have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She wouldn't care if I told her


    Have you listened to any of Jill Redfield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and save your great rep by not reading a Day book


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Eve of Darkness?

    No clue.


    Any additional comments?

    I am done with the BS this author offers as entertainment.

    "Not sure yet......"

    I am not sure how I feel about the book. The biblical references really didn't bother me but the story really didn't grab my attention.

    The relationship between Eve and the brothers wasn't believable so I was not captivated.

    I believe in finishing what I start so I will complete the series and hopefully my opinion will change.

    "It's ok...not sure why I'm not feeling it"

    It was hard to hear the audio sometimes but I love the narrator Jill Redfield

    The story jumped around a lot which got a little confusing. I'm going to try to finish the series with hopes it get better.

    "Difficult to Digest"

    Eve of Darkness was really just too much for me... the whole Cain and Abel bit coupled with a gal named Eve? They battle demons etc. only when given the directive by God. Many biblical references are used throughout all the while they are lusting or having sex, again, too much. Mind you, Eve is "marked" as a way to control Cain? I felt like I was wasting my time so I bailed about half way through. I'm not a religious zealot by any stretch, but I just couldn't get into the story. Obviously, this genre is pure entertainment... I may have had an easier time digesting the story line had Day opted to select different main characters.

    Jill Redfield is a great narrator and did a fine job distinguishing among characters.

    I am the definition of a contradiction. I am a tomboy but just can't seem to get enough of romance books!

    "WELCOMED INTRODUCTION TO A NEW LISTEN!"

    Over the years of being an audible listener I have always stuck to historical listens or contemporary listens. I have never once ventured into the paranormal listen until the Marked series.

    Sylvia Day made be a loyal reader once I listened to the crossfire series. After book 3...i realized I didn't want to start another series since crossfire left me hanging. I wanted to switch gears to a different listen to take my mind of the sour feeling of being left hanging...I decided to flip through SD's bookshelf and stumbled on the Marked series..I was skeptical i would get through the first few minutes but figured what the heck, worst case I could request to return the book? Let me say, SD awakened a new sort of interest with this listen!

    Given I loved Jill Redfield in the Crossfire series, I figured she was a safe bet to walk me through breaking into this category of listens! And what a splendid job she did!

    I loved Eve and her strong, formidable personality. At 18, without knowing it, she was destined to be marked simply because she was to much temptation to Cain- son of Adam & Eve. I will say at the beginning I was a bit lost, I kept stopping wondering if this was the first book. Get through the first 2 chapters and it will make sense!

    10 years later, Eve is about to answer for her unknowing crime, and of course just to keep things interesting, Abel - Cain's brother - is the one to deliver the punishment in a very unusual and utterly heated way.

    Now, the adventure begins with Eve trying to figure out what she is, why she was punished, questioning thing far beyond her comprehension and realizing everything she knew as a mortal and all her desires as a mortal are nothing compared with the path her life has taken now. Along for the ride are the lover she once fell head over heels for Cain and another man she can't quite make what to do with - Abel. Along the way she battles different species that seem to really want her dead barely hours after she is marked!
