IMAGINATIVE HIGH FANTASY. A brilliant Americana flintlock fantasy novel set in a world of Appalachian magic that works.

Sarah Calhoun is the fifteen-year-old daughter of the Elector Andrew Calhoun, one of Appalachee's military heroes and one of the electors who gets to decide who will next ascend as the Emperor of the New World. None of that matters to Sarah. She has a natural talent for hexing and one bad eye, and all she wants is to be left alone--especially by outsiders.

But Sarah's world gets turned on its head at the Nashville Tobacco Fair when a Yankee wizard-priest tries to kidnap her. Sarah fights back with the aid of a mysterious monk named Thalanes, who is one of the not-quite-human Firstborn, the Moundbuilders of the Ohio. It is Thalanes who reveals to Sarah a secret heritage she never dreamed could be hers.

Now on a desperate quest with Thalanes to claim this heritage, she is hunted by the Emperor's bodyguard of elite dragoons, as well as by darker things--shapeshifting Mockers and undead Lazars, and behind them a power more sinister still. If Sarah cannot claim her heritage, it may mean the end to her, her family--and to the world where she is just beginning to find her place.

Praise for Witchy Eye and D.J. Butler:

..". you can't stop yourself from taking another bite...and another...and another....I didn't want to stop reading.... Kudos!"--R.A. Salvatore, New York Times Bestselling Author

" Excellent book. I am impressed by the creativity and the depth of the world building. Dave Butler is a great storyteller."--Larry Correia

"Witchy Eye is an intricate and imaginative alternate history with a cast of characters and quirky situations that would make a Dickens novel proud." --Kevin J. Anderson, New York Times bestselling author of Eternity's Mind

"Butler's fantasy is by turns sardonic and lighthearted; ghoulish shadows claw into the most remote areas and heroism bursts out of the most unlikely people. Sarah is the epitome of the downtrodden hero who refuses to give up until she gets what she needs, and her story will appeal to fantasy readers of all stripes."--Publishers Weekly

"This is a breathtaking heroic saga that pays off in a really satisfying way. Between a world so deep you could get lost in it and a massive, distinct cast, Witchy Eye seems poised to bring Butler's work to a wider audience. . . . With a book like this one, it's an audience he definitely deserves."--BarnesandNoble.com

"David's a pro storyteller, and you're in for a great ride."--Larry Dixon

..". a fascinating, grittily-flavored world of living legends. Hurry up and write the next one, Dave."--Cat Rambo, author of Beasts of Tabat

"This is enchanting! I'd love to see more."--Mercedes Lackey New York Times bestselling author

"Goblin Market meets Magical Musketpunk... A great ride that also manages to cover some serious cultural terrain." --Charles E. Gannon, author of the thrice-Nebula nominated Caine Riordan series

"Witchy Eye is a brilliant blend of historical acumen and imagination, a tour-de-force that is at once full of surprises and ultimately heart-warming. This is your chance to discover one of the finest new stars writing today!"--David Farland, New York Times bestselling author

"A gritty, engrossing mash-up of history, fantasy, and magic. Desperate characters careen from plot twist to plot twist until few are left standing."--Mario Acevedo, author of Rescue From Planet Pleasure

"Captivating characters. Superb world-building. Awesome magic. Butler fuses fantasy and history effortlessly, creating a fascinating new American epic. Not to be missed!"--Christopher Husberg, author of Duskfall

"[A] unique alternative-history that is heavily influence by urban and traditional fantasy and steeped in the folklore of the Appalachians. . . . Fans of urban fantasy looking to take a chance on something with a twist on a historical setting may find this novel worth their time."--Booklist
