Braden was born with witch eyes: the ability to see the world as it truly is: a blinding explosion of memories, darkness, and magic. The power enables Braden to see through spells and lies, but at the cost of horrible pain. 
After a terrifying vision reveals imminent danger for the uncle who raised and instructed him, Braden retreats to Belle Dam, an old city divided by two feuding witch dynasties. As rival family heads Catherine Lansing and Jason Thorpe desperately try to use Braden's powers to unlock Belle Dam's secrets, Braden vows never to become their sacrificial pawn. But everything changes when Braden learns that Jason is his father--and Trey, the enigmatic guy he's falling for, is Catherine's son. 
To stop an insidious dark magic from consuming the town, Braden must master his gift—and risk losing the one he loves.

My Take:

What if the life you were living was a lie and the one person you trusted the most ends up being the one to start that lie. For Braden life wasn't always easy, being home schooled can do that to someone. Even though he had these special eyes didn't mean he never wished to attend a normal and school and have a normal life. Being a witch is one thing but being the one thing everyone wants is another. When Braden sees a possible future in which threatens the likelihood of his uncle he does the one thing he never thought he would do, he left and took off to the place that was calling him.

When he finally arrives at Belle Dam he can't help but wonder why there were so many strangers warning him about the people there. He mets up with Trey the moment he gets there and its like the guy is following him, he is every where Braden is. Even though Braden likes the attention he has these feelings for the guy one minute he wants to gut him the next he wants to kiss him. With Trey's help he is able to uncover the past that will help him understand his destiny.

I enjoyed this one because it kept me smiling, and left me wanting more. I loved how even though he was a stranger there were those willing to help him out, Jade was a cool character that intrigued me the moment Braden saw her. Also thought the whole town feud was a bit much but hey a what's Romeo and Juliet story without some hate from the both families. I really enjoyed the fact that Braden was able to interact with his dad and even though he knows nothing about him he still is learning to accept him. This was really amazing and it didn't bother me at all, love is love in any shape or form.

5/5 stars
