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 third
volume, Eve of Chaos (A Tor Urban Fantasy Mass Market Original, $6.99; On Sale June 30, 2009). Cursed with
the Mark of Cain, formerly agnostic Evangeline Hollis must survive demons, celestial politics, and the rival
attentions 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 consecutive
months to wide acclaim. The author's use of the Old Testament tale of Cain and Abel in a modern milieu has
sparked spirited discussions on blogs and among reading groups. "S.J. Day has obviously done her research into
the lore she is using," writes Kelly Lasiter of FantasyLiterature in her review of the first installment, Eve of

"We know Cain was branded with the Mark of Cain and cursed to wander," Day says, "but we also know that he
later married, fathered children, and established a city. Clearly something changed, but what exactly happened is a
mystery. 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 prominent
secondary characters, the main protagonist is Evangeline Hollis. Eve, a first-generation Japanese American, has
been lauded by Publishers Weekly as "impressive" and "dynamic and vibrant." An agnostic when the series
begins, Eve's acclimation to becoming a bounty hunter for God grounds the fantastical and sometimes humorous
storylines. "If you like Patricia Briggs or are a fan of the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris," says a
reviewer on Goodreads.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, Katie
Macalister, Kim Harrison . . . S.J. Day? There's a new chick in Urban Fantasy town, and ...she makes a
provocative, 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).
