Eve Hollis is a newly turned Mark and is still adjusting to her new life slaying Infernals. She has already battled numerous demons but has never been properly trained. Eve joins her fellow Marks on a field trip to an abandoned military base for a whole week of training with Raguel the Archangel as her teacher. Alec and Reed are both on other missions and unable to be there with her while she trains.
Even though Eve is more experienced then her peers, she is eager to learn so she can properly defend herself and kill Infernos. When a group of paranormal researchers show up at the base to film for a TV show, the Marks’s job becomes increasingly difficult. School turns deadly when one of the Marks ends up murdered and there’s nothing Eve can do to stop it. Without knowing who the culprit is, everyone’s lives are in danger.
In the mean time, Reed is popping up at the base whenever he has the chance and the close proximity to him is driving Eve stir crazy with lust. Alec has been distant lately and Reed is right there tempting her. Will Eve ruin her relationship with Alec by tasting the forbidden fruit with Reed once again or will she forego temptation and stay true to her man?
Eve of Destruction is the second book in the popular Marked Series and is even better then the first book Eve of Darkness. The suspense and action is completely thrilling, the love triangle heats up, and the mystery is tightly plotted. I was hooked from the first page in this installment and was absolutely delighted with this story. The characters are well developed and I couldn’t stop thinking about this book whenever I had to put it down. Everything is described so vividly that it is easy to picture it playing out in your head like a movie. I would definitely recommend Eve of Destruction to urban fantasy readers who enjoy a fast paced, action packed story with a romantic storyline mixed with the dark and gritty.
When you're learning to hunt demons, homework can be hell...
Class is in, but Evangeline Hollis is far from being the star pupil. She's struggling to get through the required training to be a full-fledged Mark -- one of thousands of sinners forced to hunt demons for God. When her class goes on a week-long field trip to an abandoned military base, passing the course suddenly 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 rises, a ragtag team of ghost hunters from a cable TV program unwittingly stumbles into the carnage. Now keeping the Mark system secret competes with the need to keep the "paranormal researchers" alive. With Cain on assignment and Abel investigating a new, terrifying class of demon, Eve must fly solo on her hunt to stop a killer before he strikes again.
