3 for Tuesday! W*n Sylvia Day’s Marked Trilogy

First, the SSP (shameless self-promotion, of course). Any sites you have time to drop by and leave a comment, it would be much appreciated.

I’m at Musings and Ramblings today, talking about the Sentinels dress code and why you’ll really never see DJ or Alex in black leather. (You’ll need to scroll past the excerpts and reviews–thanks for the reviews!)

And thanks to Leah at The Pretty Good Gatsby for the early review of Elysian Fields. And to Stephanie at Chronicles of a Novice Writer for her series review. Last, but not least, thanks to Danielle at Coffee and Characters for the review of the Penton series today!


Back in the olden days of publishing–you know, 2009, an author named S.J. Day (aka Sylvia Day) released a smokin’ hot urban fantasy trilogy, the Marked. It was the story of Evangeline Hollis, who (just her luck) has a one-night stand with Alec Cain and has no idea that he’s THAT Cain. Now she is the carrier of the Mark of Cain, cursed to hunt demons as penance and mixed up with all kinds of Archangel shenanigans.

Fast-forward to 2013, and Tor Books has re-released the trilogy (there were a couple of shorts that followed as well) in light of the popularity of Day’s Crossfire series that began with Bared to You in 2012. ‘Cause, you know, erotica is the new YA…or something like that.

Anyway, I have a nice little matched set of the re-released trilogy up for grabs today. Just leave a comment to enter the giveaway. Do you like the hot angels books and, if so, what’s your favorite? I still haven’t read the JR Ward series but I keep buying them and stacking them in the TBR. Of those I have read, Cynthia Eden’s Fallen series is my favorite.

ABOUT EVE OF DARKNESS (Marked #1): For Evangeline Hollis, a long ago fling with a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks just became a disaster of biblical proportions. One night with a leather-clad man of mystery has led to a divine punishment: the Mark of Cain. Thrust into a world where sinners are drafted into service to kill demons, Eve’s learning curve is short. A longtime agnostic, she begrudgingly maneuvers through a celestial bureaucracy where she is a valuable but ill-treated pawn. She’s also become the latest point of contention in the oldest case of sibling rivalry in history… But she’ll worry about all that later. Right now she’s more concerned with learning to kill while staying alive. And saving the soul she’d never believed she had.

ABOUT EVE OF DESTRUCTION (Marked #2): Class is in, but Evangeline Hollis is struggling to

get through the requisite training to be a full-fledged Mark. When her class goes on a field trip to an abandoned military base, passing the course 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 mounts, a ragtag team of cable TV ghost hunters 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 on an investigation, Eve must fly solo on her hunt to stop a killer before he strikes again.

ABOUT EVE OF CHAOS (Marked #3): How do you tell Satan that you ran over his dog? Evangeline Hollis has no idea, and she doesn’t want to find out.

She’d rather forget the Infernal that nearly wiped out her training class and killed some of the best demonhunting Marks in the world. Living with the Mark of Cain—and the two sexy brothers who come with it—is trouble enough. Satan has put a bounty on Eve’s head, and Hell’s denizens are converging on Southern California. The Infernals are complicating Eve’s hunts and creating chaos in her once orderly life. They’ve also brought her to the attention of an overzealous reverend who’s certain she’s Jezebel reincarnate.

  1. I hadn’t heard of this series. Something else to add to my TBR. I do like angels in books and my favorite has to be Raffe from Susan Ee’s Angelfall.

  2. Enjoyed the books. Bought this series in 2009. Liked the 2009 covers better than the new ones. “Have you been Marked?”

  3. i absolutely didn’t know about this series, i didn’t know sylvia wrote urban fantasy either^^ i’m curious now

    so angels and sexy i will say my favourite are those in teh ascension series by caris roane

    thank you!

  4. I love the angels in Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series. It feels a little darker than her Psy/Changeling series.

  5. One of the Street Teams I’m on was talking about this series the other day, and it sounds freaking fantastic!! I’ve got them on my TBR, and would absolutely love to win!! Thanks for the chance!! 🙂

  6. this sounds like a very interesting series! Thanks for sharing 🙂 My fav angel series is Guild Hunter Series by Nalini Singh.

  7. I had no idea this series existed…sounds really good! Thanks for the heads up and the contest!

    Cynthia Eden for me as well.

  8. This is a great series. I read them when they were first released. I highly recommend them. I have all three and the novellas too.

  9. These look good. I can’t think of any previous hot angel books I’ve read, but I’m all about trying new things 🙂

  10. I really haven’t read too many angel books, but I liked the ones by Thomas Sniegoski. His fallen angel is more of a broken angel than a hot one. Love the dog, too.

  11. Oh, yes, I love angels books! My favorite is still Guild Hunter by Nalini Singh. Have you try it? Cynthia Eden write a good angel books too

  12. Ooooh definitely the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh!! This series has been my LURRRVE since forever and no angel books have been able to beat it down from the top yet. 😉 Except mayyyyybe Angelfall, but they’re in totally different genres so, yeah. 🙂 Thanks for another awesome giveaway!

    P.S. SSP is totally cool, haha!

  13. Ooh I didn’t know Sylvia Day had this series. Her Crossfire series is the most hyped up one so I guess I missed this. I love anything with a paranormal or angel element in it so I would love to win this 🙂

  14. I have two favorites – The Guild Hunters by Nalini Singh and Caris Roane’s Guardians of Ascension. Also, the Renegade Angels series by Sylvia Day is on my TBR pile. 😀

  15. I actually haven’t read any naughty angel books, other than a free ebook I decided to try out but never really finished (and I don’t even remember the name of it…). I’m not against reading them though!

  16. Of the “Marked” series, the first and third seem like the most interesting. They seem to utilize the biblical archetypes well and bring out the elements of horror that much urban and dark fantasy does today.

  17. Wow really dislike those covers, the previous books are prettier. And have been on my wishlist for way too long if they are re-released already.
    If you want to read about Angels in a manner having nothing to do with religion at all, I really recommend Nalini Singh’s Archangels. With vampires for servants.

  18. I love Sylvia Day and can’t believe I have yet to read these! I have read and loved Heather Killough-Waldens Angels but I don’t think I have read too many others but I am taking note of the ones mentioned here 🙂
