Demons don’t die without a fight…
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. When disturbing nightmares of Lucien’s return haunt him, Braden discovers that the simmering feud between the city’s two witch dynasties is fast approaching its explosive boiling point.
While struggling to come to terms with his attraction to Trey, Catherine Lansing’s son who should be his mortal enemy, a diabolical plan starts to unveil before Braden’s eyes. Young women are disappearing from Belle Dam, and as he investigates, Braden is forced to explore the dangerous unknown power within himself. But when the truth about his family is revealed, Braden must pay a terrible price.

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 expecting. I love characters and now I love where the series is going. I can’t help, but worry that the last book will end with complete turmoil. I have no idea how Braden is going to survive or if he and Trey will ever be together for good.

This isn’t your typical paranormal romance. It is darker and the couple are two homosexual males. But, that’s what makes this a great read. It doesn’t follow any of the norms and yet breathes new life to an already cookie cutter genre. This is definitely a series to look for!
