Rising Darkness (Game of Shadows, #1) - Thea Harrison
First book and the exposition was off.the.charts. I am encouraged that future installments will be better because Thea has never let me down and I liked the characters so there is that. I just hope it doesn't veer off into predictability. I'm not a huge fan of those 'soul mates reincarnated through the centuries to battle an ancient curse/bad guy/society of evil' novels :)
