Demon Eyes (Witch Eyes #2 by Scott Tracey

I was given an electronic ARC of Demon Eyes by Scott Tracey from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.  Demon Eyes is the second book in the Witch Eyes series.  Witch Eyes was one of my Best I've Read of 2011 and Demon Eyes lives up to and surpasses that.  Here is the Goodreads blurb:

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.

This story is fast paced and action packed with lots of emotional scenes. The reader is drug along for the ride as Braden tries to make his way through the pitfalls of life in Belle Dam. I just wanted SOMETHING to go right for him. But of course that isn't the way it works. My heart was in my throat the entire way through this one. Scott Tracey- genius that he is- has the ability to drag you so fully into the world that he's created that you feel like you're right there with Braden the whole way. Trey was the stand out character in Demon Eyes. He grows so much over the course of the story that you can't help but love him. Braden struggles but you really need to expect that because he has so much working against him. Drew lends some levity to a situation fraught with danger and suspense. When the book ended, it felt a lot like a knife in the heart. I need to know what happens next and how it all goes down. What an enthralling book!!  Demon Eyes is set for release on October 8th, so hurry along to your favorite book store or online store and pre-order your copy now!!
