Novelist S. J. Day Continues the Marked Urban Fantasy Series with the June 30,2009 Release of Eve of Chaos (Tor Books)
The author of "Eve of Darkness" and "Eve of Destruction" continues the adventures of demon-hunter Evangeline Hollis in the third installment of the popular Marked series.
New York, New York (PRWEB) June 29, 2009 -- S. J. Day's Marked series continues with the release of the thirdvolume, Eve of Chaos (A Tor Urban Fantasy Mass Market Original, $6.99; On Sale June 30, 2009). Cursed withthe Mark of Cain, formerly agnostic Evangeline Hollis must survive demons, celestial politics, and the rivalattentions of Cain and Abel in present-day Orange County, California. Released on an accelerated schedule, the launch books of the series have been published over three consecutivemonths to wide acclaim. The author's use of the Old Testament tale of Cain and Abel in a modern milieu hassparked spirited discussions on blogs and among reading groups. "S.J. Day has obviously done her research intothe lore she is using," writes Kelly Lasiter of FantasyLiterature in her review of the first installment, Eve of Darkness."We know Cain was branded with the Mark of Cain and cursed to wander," Day says, "but we also know that helater married, fathered children, and established a city. Clearly something changed, but what exactly happened is amystery. There is a lot left to the fertile imagination of a fiction writer." While the premise of the series is based on the tale of Cain and Abel, and the two brothers are prominentsecondary characters, the main protagonist is Evangeline Hollis. Eve, a first-generation Japanese American, hasbeen lauded by Publishers Weekly as "impressive" and "dynamic and vibrant." An agnostic when the seriesbegins, Eve's acclimation to becoming a bounty hunter for God grounds the fantastical and sometimes humorousstorylines. "If you like Patricia Briggs or are a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris," says areviewer onGoodreads.com, "you will be a fan of this series as well." In her review of Eve of Darkness, Denise Dutton of Greenman Review writes, "Charlaine Harris, KatieMacalister, Kim Harrison . . . S.J. Day? There's a new chick in Urban Fantasy town, and ...she makes aprovocative, compelling arrival. Here's hoping Eve doesn't work off her Mark anytime soon." Eve of Chaos was preceded by Eve of Darkness (May 09) and Eve of Destruction (June 09).Publication Data:Eve of ChaosA Tor Mass Market OriginalBy S.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:I loved this book!The book picks up where the 2nd book, Eve of Destruction, leaves off, with Evangeline trying to figure out how to deal with all of the crap on her plate, her boss missing and presumed dead, and Alec (a.k.a Cain) not at all himself.When Raguel went missing, only a handful of people thought he was still alive given the fact that Cain was promoted to archangel (presumably to fill his void). Eve feels that she would KNOW if he was dead though, and is bound and determined to find and rescue him. Unfortunately, that's only 1 of her MANY problems. She is on the run from Satan (what's new, right!?) after recently running over his dog, her relationship with Alec (Cain) is getting worse and worse following his promotion and the strangeness he's exhibiting because of it, and she's not sure what to do with her growing feelings for Reed (Abel). The entire book from beginning to end is chock full of action. There are some super sexy moments (something you don't always get in an Urban Fantasy), characters that you can't help but love and hate, and a tantalizing plot with hints and sub-stories that are utterly compelling. Even though I generally don't like love triangles, the tension filled relationship between Cain (Alec), Eve and Reed (Abel) is essential to the plot of these books and thoroughly enjoyable in its own right (as surprising as I found that to be, personally). :) As you may have noticed online, MARKED is listed in most places as a "Trilogy". Given the ending of this book it's just not possible... it would be utterly unfair to leave the reader with so many questions and jaw dropping awe. After a little research, I discovered that because of SJ's dual writing personality, there was more need for her time on her other series and therefore, these books didn't get picked up again. They have been re-released now with new covers and things, and thankfully, the follow-up novella Eve of Warfare that supposedly wraps things up a bit is still available in eBook format (yes I will be reading this ASAP!). There is actually another short story following that, Eve of Sin City, so us MARKED fans have a tiny bit more before we have to say adieu.LITERAL ADDICTION gives Eve of Chaos 5 Skulls and would recommend the entire series to Urban Fantasy fans far and wide. I think Paranormal Romance readers who enjoy plots rooted in religion would enjoy these books as well. There isn't a lot of romance, but when it's there, it's fabulous.

It's not like I'm enjoying this series enough that I particularly want to read more of it, but the last book of a trilogy and it ends on a flipping cliffhanger? Boo.
