After destroying the demon Lucien, Braden—son of Belle Dam’s most powerful warlock, Jason Thorpe—doesn’t need the power of his witch eyes to see that everything in his life is turning against him: friends, family, and even his visions.

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.

In Demon Eyes(Book 2), the stakes a
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
This was better than #1, mostly in that it was more coherent and there were fewer distractions, fewer collapses, and fewer villains. I still can't rate it more than "okay," though.

It desperately needed an editor/proofreader. There were missing words, wrong words. Enough to be offputting.

Some Favorite Quotes:
Books like these share our experiences with others, and normalize what shouldn't be feared.

"This obsession with the mundane is silly and wasteful."

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

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

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

Belle Dam is defined by its feud. It’s shaped by the secrets it keeps and the lies it tells. It’s beleaguered by its history. It’s driven by vengeance and the quest for power.

And it’s safe for no one.

Not for the humans who have no idea about its dark past. About the widow who waits in the shadows. About the witches and warlocks who battle for control. About the hellhounds who are summoned to exact revenge. And about the demons who see the citizens of Belle Dam as mere pawns in a game to be manip

Demon Eyes is the second and penultimate book in the Witch Eyes series written by Scott Tracey. It centers on Braden Michaels, a home-schooled teenager with the powers of Witch Eyes, which could pierce the veil that separates the magical and physical worlds – a powerful abilities that the feuding witch families in Belle Dam, who would love to possess.

Braden's powerful witch eyes are more curse than strength, as the strain he put them through battling Lucien Fallon has left them so unstable that

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

This book is about a young male witch with and extraordinary gift

I have to say that I enjoyed your second book in this series better than the first although Braden worked on my nerves at times I could understand him wanting to have a normal life and just be a advantage teenager . Personally I like Drew better than trey but we'll Trey kind of like tree on me and Riley I hope that you explain her part in this and who are those other witches can't wait to see what happens next .
And the second one of this Triology done. Some parts - again! -didn't make me happy while reading, but were really annoying instead.Especially the highschool scenes (for real I could live so wonderfully without them...) and also the characterization of most of the characters was really erratic... Also even as a non native speaker I spotted a lot of mistakes in te text, this book probably should really have been edited...
But the ending was alright, I guess - so I'm gonna read the last part too...

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

In Demon Eyes, Braden is tormented by the fact that he killed Lucien, no matter that he was evil and a demon (literally), merely knowing that he was capable of murder brings very real nightmares that will not let him sleep and even imagines that he can see him even awake. Besides is the fact that Trey, the guy Braden likes is not speaking to him (because they are mortal enemies, because their parents are mortal enemies), also her best friends Jade and Riley keep their distance from him,

This book really felt like an improvement on the first one. The pacing feels a lot better, and I could definitely keep up with the plot with less difficulty than when I read Witch Eyes. The romance between Braeden and Trey was also just as engaging as in the previous book, and I really appreciate the quality of bisexual representation in this series. No, it’s not as diverse as other queer YA titles, which is an immense shame, but I’m grateful for Trey’s bisexuality being portrayed in a consisten ...more

Scott wrote his autobiography at age six, and its all been downhill since then. He traveled the country on a Greyhound for a month, devoted a semester of school to starting a series of urban legends, and spent five years perfecting how to say "would you like fries with that" for a short story. Or so he claims.
