"A bewitching blend of paranormal romance and intrigue."- Kirkus Reviews

More About the Author

Scott Tracey lived on a Greyhound bus for a month, wrote his illustrated autobiography at the age of six, and barely survived Catholic school. His gifts can be used for good or evil, but instead of picking a side, he strives for both for his own amusement. His first novel, WITCH EYES, was listed as a YALSA Popular Paperback for 2011, and an Amazon Best of 2011 book in the LGBT category. DEMON EYES is his latest release.

Customer Reviews

When you're in the bookstore this weekend, be sure to pick up Witch Eyes and read a few pages.
Sophie Riggsby
All I have to add is - hang on tight, because the pacing, action and plot reveals in the last half of the book are UNBELIEVABLE.
Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews
The writing is very well done, character development is equally good and the story line is well crafted.

Belle Dam is a town that has been shrouded in darkness ever since its inception. It is a town divided by a feud between the two powerful families who keep its secrets - the Lansing's and the Thorpe's. It is a town whose residents must choose sides in this battle that has continued to rage through generations.

And it is the town to which Braden Michaels runs in order to protect his uncle from the vision of a future which cost him his life.

But when Braden learns that Belle Dam was once home to someone who shared his gift and his curse - the witch eyes that allow him to see the truth of the world around him - he is determined to learn everything he can so that he will finally be able to master his abilities and find an escape from the pain that accompanies his visions.

Digging up secrets from the past would be a huge risk and one that could turn the spotlight on him and his powers. But Braden is desperate to find answers.

Even if it meant getting drawn into a fight that wasn't his. And even if it meant that the secrets he'd been keeping would come to light. Because having a chance at a life without pain was worth almost any price, including the risk of losing someone he loved.

But Braden planned on keeping his secrets for as long as he could.

***

Witch Eyes is exciting, intense, beautiful, heartbreaking and incredibly original. Beginning in a binding circle and ending on a small cliff, this story introduces readers to Braden Michaels, a witch with a very unique gift, and Belle Dam, the town that is home to two powerful feuding families that would like nothing more than to have Braden on their side.

Braden has the ability to see the world as it really is and in doing so can unravel any magical spells that are cast.

I just read Witch Eyes, then bought the prequel and preordered the sequel. So, I guess it was pretty good. The story was interesting and flowed well, with each character adding interest. Braden, the main character, was real and had depth and inspired some empathy about his strife. There is a nice twist and some inventive choices with witch and supernatural character powers. I can't wait until the next installment to see what happens.

I had the pleasure of meeting the author of Witch Eyes Scott Tracey at a book signing at a library in New York. This book along with the second book in the series was given to me at the signing by a girl who had won an extra copy of both books. I am extremely happy that I was given these books because I really enjoyed Witch Eyes. The following day at my favorite bookstore Books of Wonder I heard Scott describe the plot of the book, and his reasons for writing the book and I just knew I had to read as soon as possible.

Witch Eyes is a modern spin on Romeo and Juliet. It's filled with the tragedy, despair, and feuding families that you would expect from a Romeo and Juliet story, but with an original storyline. The main character in this series is Braden. Braden is also homosexual. At the Books of Wonder signing, Scott said that he wanted to write a book where the main character was gay, but he didn't want to make it a coming out story. In Witch Eyes, Braden knows that he is gay, his uncle (his guardian) knows he is gay and it's not the basis of the book at all.

The general plot of the book is that Braden has powers. Magic powers that can pretty much allow him to see anything and everything. But of course the backlash is that when he uses these powers it causes him intense pain. And one day when he believes his uncle is in danger, he leaves home. He moves to a town called Belle Dam and finds himself in the middle of feud between two families that has lasted for years.

One thing I have to say that I really enjoyed about this book was the pace of it. It wasn't too long, it wasn't too short. I didn't feel like the book dragged at all. I would have liked to see a little bit more character development in some of the minor characters.

Witch Eyes proved to be an intriguing start to a new series. While the book had it's faults I did really enjoy it and look forward to seeing where things go in the next book.

Braden was a pretty likable character but it took me awhile to warm up to him. I never disliked him, I just felt like I really didn't know him at all. His personality had a hard time coming through for me. But as the story progressed I enjoyed seeing him strive to find what was right and then to do what was right. I also liked that he was gay but it wasn't really an issue for him. There wasn't any angst or anything. He has a fear at first for what others may think but his fears fade as others find out. His being gay wasn't an issue in the book, it just was and I liked that.

The other characters played their roles well but I think I had a few issues with the love interest. He seemed kind of weak to me but I think that's how he's suppose to be. I'm hoping that in the next book he finds more strength.

I already mentioned that the romantic interest felt a little weak to me. But he was a sweetie, especially in the beginning. And even though he felt a little clueless he knew when he had feelings for Braden and they both just went for it. I did feel like it happened a little fast, but they had hung out a few times and when trapped in a life or death situation hidden feelings tend to come to the surface and that's definitely what happened here. I think it worked okay but like I mentioned before, I really hope that he finds some strength so their relationship can really work. It's definitely a forbidden romance though so we'll see how it works out.

I kind of feel that a town like this being the setting is kind of "been there, done that" but I kind of get it at the same time.
