Witch Eyes by Scott Tracey

imageBraden was born with witch eyes: the ability to see the world as it truly is: a blinding explosion of memories, darkness, and magic. The power enables Braden to see through spells and lies, but at the cost of horrible pain.
After a terrifying vision reveals imminent danger for the uncle who raised and instructed him, Braden retreats to Belle Dam, an old city divided by two feuding witch dynasties. As rival family heads Catherine Lansing and Jason Thorpe desperately try to use Braden's powers to unlock Belle Dam's secrets, Braden vows never to become their sacrificial pawn. But everything changes when Braden learns that Jason is his father--and Trey, the enigmatic guy he's falling for, is Catherine's son.
To stop an insidious dark magic from consuming the town, Braden must master his gift—and risk losing the one he loves.

Witch Eyes was brilliant. It has action, romance, and magic- a trio that doesn’t always end well. In this case, it ended wonderfully. Tracey wrote a compelling, addicting novel that I couldn’t stop reading. I honestly have no complaints about Witch Eyes. It was a delightful read.

Braden was so amazingly realistic. I loved his need to be heroic and to make his own decisions. He didn’t take anybody’s crap and wouldn’t just sit there while other people went and saved the day. Braden is my kind of guy. And then there is Trey. Lovely, lovely Trey- who tries to tame Braden. Trey is simply adorable. I love the dynamic between Trey and Braden. The feud between the Lansings and the Thorpes added so much good tension to the story, which helped make it so addicting. The tension was electric.

Scott Tracey did an awesome job writing Witch Eyes. I highly recommend it! I can’t wait for the second book in the series- it can’t come soon enough.

FTC- Bought.
