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 wanted to like this book but...."

    First off, the narration was great, I love Jill Redfield who also narrates Suzanne Wright's books. If you haven't read the Phoenix or Mecury Pack books and enjoy shifter romances, I highly recommend them. So I've listened to her before and have no problems with her narration.

    I think my entire problem was with the premise of the book. I don't consider myself a "Christian" but I am a spiritual person and I was raised Christian. So I'm familiar with Bible stories and I tend to love new spins on them. So when I read the cover blurp, I was really interested, as Cain and Abel are a big part of the old Testament and I always wondered if there was more to the story. Side Note: Supernatural the TV series, takes a stab Cain and his Mark as well and it was really good.

    What I couldn't get pass was the fact of why Eve got the Mark of Cain, and it's because she had sex. While I don't agree with the sex she did have (stranger in an elevator), it wasn't anything cruel or awful, it didn't hurt anyone, etc. Apparently though, sex is "bad" if your a woman so she got the Mark of Cain. Or maybe it's because she slept with Abel (the guy on the elevator) after giving her virginity to Cain 10 years ago? But again, that relationship was when she was 18 and only lasted a few weeks, then she never saw Cain again. But on the flip side the Mark causes you to go into some kind of "heat" and forces you to have sex.

    So, on the one hand we have the side of God and the Angels saying, "you screwed up and had sex you evil temptress" but at the same time saying "as punishment we're giving you a tattoo that makes you want to have more evil sex." And Eve doesn't even fight the double standard.

    I kept reading because I liked the representation of the demons and world and how the Marked were this elite group of "evil demon hunters." But I kept coming back to the reason of Eve's Mark and how the love triangle between Cain her and Abel was shown. And the book kept throwing in my face that Cain and Eve shouldn't be together. I finished most of the book, but I'll be returning it and won't be continuing the series.

    "Couldn't make it through"

    I've read so many novels by Sylvia that I thought I would love all of them. But when I began this one, I was way too out of touch; between the Bible references and the fictional creatures and powers... it was all lost on me. Just not my style at all.

    Story
    "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.
