Perhaps one of the best Buffy the Vampire Slayer knock offs produced. Better than Princess of Wands and as good as Carpe' Demon

The book has a light style to it that plays heavily on the eroticism. Some readers may find the opening chapter(s) offensive. The book also uses strong catholic religious themes and they prevail throughout the series. This opening book into a trilogy is complete in and of itself but, I found that I wanted to read the rest of series as soon as I finished the first book. I held off just to enjoy the anticipation.

What I particularly liked about this story is that it took a well known parable and looked at it sideways through a mirror. Cain and Abel are well known and the rivalry is known throughout christianity - usually as a warning. However, this book implies there's a lot more behind the scenes that we don't know.

Eve - Evangeline Hollis - is a smart resourceful character that has always thought her life should go one way and instead has gone 220 degrees in another. The character is believable (suspending belief in the whole scenario in which the character is placed.) In other words she seems like a real woman who lives in Southern California. She is also easy to admire.

I hope there are more to this series.

Interesting idea wasn't enough

Eve is an average gal until she hooks up with Cain and ends up with the Mark of Cain. This turns her into a supernatural bounty hunter working with Cain and Abel hunting down rogue demons. I didn't really enjoy the characters and wasn't hooked in by the plot or style....

    An interesting paranormal romance

    S. J. Day builds an interesting world in Eve of Darkness, one peopled with Heaven's angels and the demons of Hell. It's interesting to see heavenly beings with human failings - but sometimes it's a little difficult to believe that this is how God's army would act. However, the characters are engaging and the story is engrossing - and I'm looking forward to reading the other two books in the series.

    While I love most of Sylvia Day's characters, I found the heroin

    While I love most of Sylvia Day's characters, I found the heroin, Eve, in this book to be annoying. She's supposed to be headstrong and tough, but she's written as an obnoxious, disrespectful smart ass. I tried to like her, but I just wanted to slap her .
    Other than that, I really like the story line and 2 male characters.
