Image of Eve of Darkness (Marked, Book 1)

Day, aka multi-talented author Sylvia Day, explodes onto the urban fantasy scene with a new twist on the Cain and Abel story. The heroine is thrust into a dangerous new reality where the learning curve is fatally steep. Day foreshadows dramatic events and then flashes back to tell the tale from the beginning. It's dark, gritty and sexy to the max, so readers can be thankful the next chapter in this pulse-pounding series is only a month away!

Evangeline Hollis' long-ago fling with the all-too-sexy Alec Cain comes back to haunt her when his similarly sexy angelic brother Reed Abel forces the Mark of Cain on her. Once marked, Eve is transformed into a demon-killing warrior whose kills for God may help save her soul. Unfortunately, bureaucracy is not limited to humans, and the celestial version is brutal. With both brothers laying claim to her, Eve has her hands full, and that doesn't take into account the demons trying to kill her.
