Has anyone read this yet and want to offer an opinion?  I just finished it and am curious what others think. I'll copy in the synopsis from the author's website.

ETERNAL MOON

(ISBN: 978-0425227008, Berkley Sensation, April 2009) 
 
Good and evil clash down through the ages in a struggle for supremacy. Renata Cordona is the reincarnation of an ancient goddess. Werewolf Jacob Marshall is a dog whisperer and her true consort. They have met countless times through the centuries in different lives. And each time, a demon steps into the equation to keep them from fulfilling their destiny. They've never been strong enough to fight the ancient evil. But can a werewolf change the equation? Or will they repeat the pattern of destruction and doom humanity along with themselves

I tried a few of York's books and couldn't get into them.  I can't remember why.  So...that was no help, huh.

I like her books for the most part, but if I'd have started with this one - I'd agree with you. 

It seemed like she had a random checklist of plot lines and threw them ALL in.... werewolves, alternate universe, serial killer, ancient goddess, good vs evil, demon possession, and cursed romance. Neither of the main characters were particularly captivating. Even the key bad guy was only shallowly explained. 

I really want to  hear from others because I wonder was it just me, or was this storyline all over the place?

I really like the first part of this series.  But once it got into the other dimenson, I began to lose interest.  I'll still read them.  Just no longer going to keep them.  It's like there is more time spent on the set up and less time on the characters.
