    Awesome storyline, didn't like how it was written

    ARC provided by Entangled Publishing via NetGalley for honest review. I was really excited about this book, the plot sounded great and I couldn’t wait to read about this love story. Unfortunately, I was kind of disappointed because I thought the blurb sounded better than the actual book. I’m giving this book 3 stars because I thought the storyline was actually pretty cool; a curse and true love, an ancient feud among powerful families and great magic. I loved that. My problem was how the book was written; it was messy, confusing and I had a hard time following some parts. I had to reread some paragraphs because there were some unclear passages, and to be fair I was expecting a different setting for the story. Let me explain; this is urban fantasy (kinda) because we are in the modern world but the society is different, there is magic but also normal people. I don’t know, but from the plot I was epecting something set in another world or in another time. One thing that I didn’t really like was how the setting for the story wasn’t really explained. There are some stories were it’s all setting explanation and no story itself: here it’s complitely the other way around. We don’t know anything and we are told almost nothing, we are just tossed inside this world and have to figure out what is going on by ourselves. I arrived at chapeter 8 still confused about what was actually going on and what the story was really about and that is not really great. I understand the ending but I feel like if you build the whole book about one single subject, that’s not really the ending I would have expected or suggested.

    I want more!

    The Uncrossing is an engaging and entertaining novel that admittedly took me a little while to get pulled in to, but once I was, there was no putting this book down! It's confusing and mysterious and quite intriguing, it's everything you'd want in a young adult urban fantasy novel. And it has two totally endearing characters, which was just the icing on the cake! Full of magic and mayhem and mystery, The Uncrossing also has a sweet romance brewing in its pages. Luke and Jeremy have known each other since they were children, as their families have an uneasy working relationship. It's not until recently, though, that things between them start to shift, thanks to some meddling by Jeremy's brother- meddling that I still can't figure out if it was for Jeremy's benefit or for Alex's, his brother. But no matter what, it was just the push both Luke and Jeremy needed to set things in motion. Not all is what it seems when it comes to Jeremy, though, and Luke discovers secrets that he wasn't meant to know. This leads to some drama and confusion and discord between the families. But as the mystery and secrets are revealed, Luke plays a major part in helping to resolve at least some of it, and that helps to put the families back on even ground. And Jeremy and Luke are finally able to just be 2 teen boys who care about each other... I really enjoyed everything about this book...except that ending, I need more! I don't know if Ms. Eastlake has plans for a follow-up, but I really hope there is one. I don't want to say good-bye just yet to Luke and Jeremy.
