Summary: A boy who can see the world’s secrets and unravel spells with just a glance. Braden’s witch eyes give him an enormous power. A mere look causes a kaleidoscopic explosion of emotions, memories, darkness, and magic. But this rare gift is also his biggest curse.
Compelled to learn about his shadowed past and the family he never knew, Braden is drawn to the city of Belle Dam, where he is soon caught between two feuding witch dynasties. Sworn rivals Catherine Lansing and Jason Thorpe will use anything—lies, manipulation, illusion, and even murder—to seize control of Braden’s powers. To stop an ancient evil from destroying the town, Braden must master his gift, even through the shocking discovery that Jason is his father. While his feelings for an enigmatic boy named Trey grow deeper, Braden realizes a terrible truth: Trey is Catherine Lansing’s son … and Braden may be destined to kill him.
Review: This is a fast-paced and fun novel. There is enough plot and enough romance and even if some parts are a bit too by-the-book and some things are a bit too predictable, the novel itself is still entertaining. It’s just a good, solid gay YA fantasy novel. :)
