This book was absolutely breathtaking and near perfection. I was literally enthralled all the way through. I am pissed that I have to wait till October for the final book.

1. Plot & Writing

Witch Eyes was the first book in the series and it was a solid 4. For the most part, the book was near perfection. It did sort of go a little too fast and i felt like at first it didn't pace itself but the writing leveled out and became more balanced.

Demon Eyes was even better than Witch Eyes, the first book felt more like an introduction and the action really got going in this one.

I loved Braden's struggle with the events of the first book and that killing someone (even a demon) had a big effect on him. I also really liked how the side character were more developed this book, especially Drew. I wish I could get more excited about Braden/Trey though because I love that the main pairing in this book is a gay couple but it's still hard for me

What a nice surprise!

I really enjoyed the second book. I read Witch Eyes a very long time ago but I remember that it slightly bored me sometimes, which this book did not do at all.
It probably would do me good to re-read Witch Eyes because I think I just read it at the wrong moment.

What you need to know is that Demon Eyes is original and has a few interesting characters who are realistic. Let me jump straight to Braden and Trey relationship because I want to talk about how well it was done;

My thoughts

Expectations : my expectations aren’t mile high. Maybe that’s a good thing. I hope it will be better and here’s hoping there’s more history on the founding of Belle Dam.

Cover : The sequel has another floating head but a grey one this time and the lighthouse from book one is shown. I like it less than its predecessor.

Book : Living in Belle Dam has become more welcoming and the drama at the end of book 1 has settled a bit. He has made some close friends and a relationship with

The first book, WITCH EYES, was a good debut book, but the sequel, DEMON EYES surpassed it. I thought WITCH EYES had a semi-predictable plot, but the characters were amazing and relatable. Not only are the characters BETTER in this book, but the twists and turns kept me going.

Scott Tracey made sure to keep the reader guessing what was happening next, what the motives were to the characters, and just who is the villain. Braden is more proactive, which keeps the story moving in ways I wasn't expec
If Romeo and Juliet were gay....and witches.

This was a much better sequel to the original 'Witch Eyes'. My problems with that novel were that it showed potential and promise, yet never really capitalised on it. The lore felt interesting, but underdeveloped, the characters were interesting, but not interesting enough to stand out etc. Everything was very 'meh', and it left me wondering whether I should read the sequel.

After finishing the sequel though, I can say that I'm glad I stuck with it. It
Braden’s problems escalate quickly in this book, mainly because he keeps blundering into one problem after another. It’s frustrating to watch him making so many mistakes, some easily avoided.

He maintains suspicions but never against the right people. Being the school pariah means he’s lonely, angry and desperate to keep in contact with his friends who variously shun him for one reason or another. When he’s in difficulties he usually relies on his unpredictable magic to get him out of trouble, g

As complicated as it should be, experiencing nightmares of the person who was dead because of you and the horror that is haunting you and the most lame moment of not having someone to confide with, for sure it gives you the option of being crazy, nothing more nothing less. But what if you found out that person is getting stronger and are half-alive, does it trigger your mental capacity to enroll in the crazy academy?

Satisfying and exciting sequel to Witch Eyes, can't wait for the third book!! Loved the new dynamic between Braden and his friends, particularly Jade. I also loved the exploration into the character of Drew who we didn't see as much of in the first book, and he's such an asshole I adore. Sometimes the book felt a little fast and it took me a moment to realise that we were in the lead up to the Final Battle Of The Book, but whilst the conclusion/cliffhanger of the book was predictable, it was sti ...more

This is my review for Demon Eyes: the sequel that is better than its predecessor.

I read Witch Eyes in October 2015, and I've been wanting to return to this series ever since. I'm not going to lie: it took me some time and some brain power to remember all the stuff that happened in the first book, and to place all the characters in my mind. But once the catching up part was over, I could fully immerse myself in this fantastic and dark world, filled with magic, mysteries and great characters.

The Witch Eye series is definitely one that is original and different from your typical story with magic, romance and violence. It wasn’t what I had expected but that being said, it didn’t exactly disappoint either.

The one main thing that I enjoyed about this book was how the main character, Braden, is gay and is in love with Trey, the son of his father’s rival and long time enemy, Catherine. To be perfectly honest, it threw me off guard when I first found out about his sexual orientation mainly

Sequel to the terrific YA novel "Witch Eyes," this is another great read from Scott Tracey. This is the story of a teenage boy, raised and home-schooled in isolation in Montana, who must now face powerful witches and demons in his family's home in Belle Dam, not to mention survive high school.

Braden is a tremendously powerful witch, but has no idea as to the limits of his gift or how to use it to best effect without blinding, or even killing, himself. He starts having nightmares about the demon

So obviously, I was interested enough to pick up the second one. This one was a little bit more confusing to me. For one thing, the can't be with you/want you so much relationship thing gets a bit old really quickly with me. Also, the new mystery centers around the other person with witch eyes, but I don't know that I understood what actually happened.
On the other hand, I still think the world building is excellent and I really want to know what is going on. I was very disappointed to hit the la

DEMON EYES by Scott Tracey, the second book in the Witch Eyes series, thrusts readers right back into Braden’s story with immediate creepy happenings, mystery and intrigue.

While Braden is still recovering from the happenings in WITCH EYES, new developments are arising in Belle Dam that aren’t looking so good for our main characters. Girls are disappearing and there are hints that the demon Lucien may not be as dead as we’d all hoped

Demon Eyes picks up where Witch Eyes left off. Leaving Braden struggling with his relationship with his father who has no idea how to deal with a seventeen year old who has extreme eye problems due to using the Witch Eyes for an extensive period of time on top of already having the Witch Eyes. Braden's father thinks that he can be fixed, but Braden knows otherwise.

Besides school, Braden rarely gets to leave the house except for school and when he sneaks out. If Jason Thorpe had his way, Braden

Ever feel that yours eyes can be special or used for something, for Braden living with his eyes has never really been a walk in the park. He's been training to prevent his eyes from taking over but sometimes things get in the way, and getting headaches is the least of his worries. Witch Eyes gave us an intro to the town of Belle Dam and since Lucian's defeat Braden has been living it day by day. But with the tests his father orders, and the stress of not knowing what the eye

Demon Eyes is the second book in the series, about a war on two witch families and Braden is caught in the middle of it. And while the war is on a tenderhook ceasefire, Braden is trying to get to grips over the events of the last book. Braden thought he destroyed a powerful demon. So why does Braden keep seeing him? Why does he keep seeing visions of him? Why is he hearing a cold winter voice inside his head? And when girls begin to disappear, Braden realise that

When I reviewed Witch Eyes, I listed what I loved and didn’t love about the story. But Demon Eyes? I honestly can’t think of a single thing I didn’t like. Scott Tracey really outdid himself this time. Braden’s story continues with more action and strengthened characters which in turn gave me a story that I couldn’t put down.

The cast of characters really won me over this time around. If you have ever read a review of mine you will know that characters, more than anything, are what re

Full disclosure: I received an Advanced Reader's Copy of Demon Eyes from Flux Books.

Demon Eyes is a great sophomore effort from Scott Tracey and an exciting follow-up to Witch Eyes. In fact, it's a much better book and a far more engaging read. That's actually saying a lot because the first book was excellent. Tracey seems to be honing his storytelling skills as his writing is greatly improved here.

Scott Tracey delivers another deliciously dangerous story with Demon Eyes. Haunted by his actions in Witch Eyes, Braden begins to shut out the people who care about him most. While his paternal relationship with Jason is still a secret from most of Belle Dam, including Catherine Lansing, living in Jason’s house has made him a few enemies. To top it off, if Braden uses his witch eyes ag

Demon Eyes is the second book in the Witch Eyes series. I was lucky enough to be given an ARC at a signing I went to back in June. But since the release date wasn't until October, I decided to wait until a little bit later to read it. The first book Witch Eyes was such a wild and enjoyable ride. Demon Eyes was very much the same. Warning there will be some spoilers from Witch Eyes in this review, so proceed with caution if you haven't read Witch Eyes yet.

Full review (including a recap with spoilers) on my blog, the Snark Theater.

Demon Eyes is an excellent follow-up to an already good book. Its plot feels much more cohesive, the stakes are upped, and overall everything is better.

Everything, but the romance. It grew a little stale and repetitive. Until the end, that is. This is the sort of mid-series romantic twist I hope/intend to achieve someday (hopefully without the "stale and repetitive" part beforehand).

Certainly better than book one. Probably could even be read as a stand alone without reading the first book. The problem I had was with the story/plot. I just found it difficult to really care about it. I struggled to fully understand it all. What I did grasp I'm sorry to say I just didn't find that compelling. I just couldn't get into this one. There were also too many complex fight/magical spell scenes. The ending came and I was left with almost more questions tan answers. The

What a stunning reader’s hook-and non-stop action-this story never takes a breather, and I’m thankful. Makes me wish I had read the first in the series-“Witch Eyes”-but no fear, I definitely intend to pick it up. Braden lives, as of recently, in the small town of Belle Dam, Washington, a community that seems to be noted for magical workings, secrecy, and deceit. Although he didn’t discover it until recently, he is the son of Jason Thorpe, one of the two warring witch families in Belle Dam. The s ...more
