Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Review: Eve of Warfare by S.J. Day

Eve of Warfare (Marked, #3.25) Eve of Warfare (Marked, 3.25) by S.J. Day

My rating: 



Synopsis:
Lycans, vampires, and cherubs... oh my. 

All Evangeline Hollis wants is to stay out of trouble long enough to lose the Mark of Cain, which drafted her into hunting demons for God. A former agnostic, she's still recovering from being the latest point of contention between the two men in her life--Cain and Abel. Now she's working for a cherub who thinks putting her undercover as a housewife is the best way to rout out a rogue vampire hiding in an idyllic Orange County, California residential community. 

Eve knows when she's being used as a pawn in the celestial political game. Now, she just has to figure out who's the greater threat: the vampire she's hunting, the cherub yanking her chain, or the two brothers vying to play the role of her spouse--'til death do them part. Which in her line of work, could happen any minute... 

("Eve of Warfare" is a stand-alone novella, which falls after EVE OF CHAOS in the Marked series chronology.)



Review:
Boy, do I ever love this series. Each instalment, short or long is always jam packed with drama, destruction and suspense. I wish I read this one before Eve of Sin City(3.5), but it really didn't matter that I read these two out of order. This can be skipped, but I wouldn't want to if you're a fan of the series. Bits and pieces may pop up again that you'll miss the meanings behind.


I can honestly say this one was nerve wrecking. It had some action and blood like always, but it was mostly based around the love triangle, with a bit of Heaven and Hell politics. The tension in this story was great towards the end. I know Eve is meant to be with Cain for many reasons, but I still feel Abel is hiding something. He cares of Eve more than he puts on.


That being said, this was a short, fun read. I loved spending some time with Eve, Cain, Abel and the other Archangels. I really hope S.J Day puts out another instalment soon!
