Waiting on Wednesday: Witch Eyes by Scott Tracey

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting!

Coming September 2011!

Witch Eyes by Scott Tracey

Braden Michaels wears his sunglasses at night. And at the movies. And in the shower. Raised by his warlock uncle and taught to use magic, he suffers from a deadly curse: the witch eyes. He sees everything that normal eyes filter out: history and memory; love and pain; magic and darkness. The mind was not meant to process so much information, though, and the power is killing him slowly. The only thing saving his sanity are the sunglasses he always wears.

Then the visions reveal a dark threat on the horizon. Braden runs away to Belle Dam, the city where the threat originated, and is immediately swept up into the town’s mysterious feud. Two rival magical families have divided the town into a personal chessboard of scheming and machinations, and Braden is their latest pawn. As he tries to avoid their manipulations, and see the truth behind his return to Belle Dam, he has a choice to make. One side, or the other. Ignite the feud, or end it. Sacrifice himself, or someone else. Live, or die.

I'm loving the song in that trailer.

First of all, snaps for the Corey Hart reference. Second of all, this book sounds amazing! SO original. I love this line in particular: "He sees everything that normal eyes filter out: history and memory; love and pain; magic and darkness." Can you imagine? For some reason, this kind of ability always fascinates me -- being able to see things that are intangible, like memory and pain. There's something poetic about it. Then there's the feud. Feuds can be such great literary devices (Montagues and Capulets, anyone?) and I love the idea of the town as a chessboard. How is Braden related to the feud? Why is he such a crucial player? What are they fighting for? This novel just sounds chilling and dark and imaginative -- and if that cover doesn't catch your eye, I don't know what will. (Er, no pun intended...)

What future release are you eagerly awaiting this week?
