This book took me back a quite a few years to a series set around a rather unusual town called Twin Peaks. Who remembers Twin Peaks? Well, this book had that feel to it. The town of Belle Dam has some unusual and very clever aspects to it that really made me think. In fact, I found the town of Belle Dam to be a character in itself; full of magical elements hidden from the human eye.
A couple of the characters surprised me in this book and I found myself feeling a little double crossed. Never assume that what you see in a character is real in this book, as they may have a hidden side that is yet to be revealed.
The ending was certainly explosive leaving a couple of strands to ponder over. I am certain that a second book is being created and hopefully these unanswered questions will be dealt with.
I had one really big issue with this book and it is by no means the fault of the author. The blurb on the back of the book gave away two huge spoilers about the book , revealing events to me that did not happen until midway through the book.Read more ›
This was another book I found on Sarah Rees Brennan's rec list that after I had looked it up on Goodreads and Amazon, I had to give a try. And I must say that I'm glad I did, because I really enjoyed it and am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
Witch Eyes is a unique read, for many reasons. It is the first book I have read in a while which has had a male character as the main protagonist. Braden is a good lead; I found him easy to relate to, and he had an interesting way to look at the world. Having witch eyes makes Braden something of a bad ass, but at the same time whilst he has super powers there are consequences to having them which I like - I'm a firm believer power should come at a price. I also like the friends Braden makes when he first arrives in Belle Dam - Riley and Jade. They too are awesome characters - they feel like real people. Braden has very different relationships with both of them, but it is clear that they are very good friends to him. Trey is, as the blurb admits, something of an enigmatic character. There's the definite sense that he may not be all he seems, but he seems to be interested in Braden.
The plot of the book is pretty easy to work out from the blurb - I think perhaps a little too much is revealed there - but there are some interesting twists that are surprising. I won't talk too much about them, as I don't want to give anything away, except to say that I think they work rather well. I also liked how the book ended. There was a definite ending, but also the hint of more to come.
If you're a fan of Urban Fantasy and/or LGBTQIA books then you should give this book a go.

Witch eyes is a book that was easy to get into from the very first page i was hooked. Braden has always know he was different the faceted his a witch and that his eyes can see the world in a whole new light. Braden lives with his uncle and is home school but when he see's that something bad is about to happen he head to belle dam but what he finds there is a war between two family's. Both sides want to use Braden gift but there is so much worse going on in this town.People are being manipulated by something more then two fighting family's and this person will stop at nothing to get what they want!
Braden is a brilliant character his different and more then that he want's his own life and his want's to make friends and get a boyfriend. Poor braden only want's a simply life but because of who he is that can't happy and its because of this you love to follow his story and find out what happens next. When the story line gets into fall swing it's action pack with magical outbursts and more danger then you could shake a stick at and that not the half of it. There was just so much you can love in this book it was so....amazing i loved the love twist and the secret and lies that seem to make this town and most of all i loved how much of this book was about family. The book really pointed out that sometimes family are not always normal and happy and its hard to love people when they just want to use you.
If you like magic, danger and romance this book is going to be for you.
