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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
One day Braden has a vision which tells him that evil magic from a town called Belle Dam is going to come after him and kill his uncle to get to him. Braden, who is well-meaning but not the sharpest knife in the drawer, decides to protect his uncle by... going to Belle Dam.
As soon as Braden arrives, he is flirted with by a hot guy from the bus. Then he is unexpectedly welcomed by a lawyer who puts him up in a hotel and introduces him to his hitherto-unknown father, Jason, who is a town VIP and a powerful witch. On Braden's first day of high school, he is instantly befriended by two girls and flirted with by a different hot guy. All of these people, who begin relationships with Braden without him having to do anything, exposit at some length to him about how the town is run by Jason and his arch-rival, Catherine Lansing. Catherine Lansing is also the mother of Jade, Braden's new best friend, and Trey, Braden's love interest. Oops.
I wanted to like this novel more than I actually did. It has some funny lines and some good moments when it breaks out of its teen paranormal formula to deliver some real emotion. I liked the realistic way that Braden's sexual orientation was handled - not without angst, but without angsty melodrama.Read more ›
