Summary: (from goodreads) 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.

Where do I begin with this review!! What a refreshing read from all the same books out there that basically have the same theory. This story is both modern and mystical and traps you from the very first page. This story has a little bit of everything. Magic, mystery, romance, and darkness to satisfy you with a good read.

The story is based in a small town called Belle Dam. Belle Dam is full of ancient secrets between the families of the Montague's and the Capulet's and the feud is ongoing even including it’s towns people. With his special powers, “Witch Eyes”, Brandon will stop at nothing to find out all the secrets luring between the two families and finally find out the truth. But having these “powers” are more like a curse than a blessing. It is believed that only one other witch had these powers, a woman who is lost in history. With having to leave his only family member, his uncle in order to keep him safe, Brandon leaves to investigate. But this is not the “refreshing part of the story” Trey, who belongs to one of the families in the feud is Brandon’s best friend. That’s until Brandon and Trey grow from being friends and into a relationship. Yes, people they are gay. I have never read a story like this and I must add that it was very interesting to see how Mr. Tracy build and sustained their relationship and I was thrilled to read something completely new to me. Mr. Tracy does great job with these characters, having you falling in love with them from the start. 

As I mentioned before, what a refreshing, well developed, written and described story. Oh and Trey and Brandon are to die for. I highly recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for a way out of the ordinary and wants to jump into something new. You can read an excerpt over at Flux by clicking HERE.
