'''''Warren the 13th''''' is a young adult fantasy series written by Tania del Rio and illustrated by Will Staehle. So far, there is only one book in the series - ''Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye'', published on November 24, 2015 - but there is a message at the end of the book promising more books to come.

The star is a young boy named Warren, who is the 13th in a long line of Warrens who have managed the Warren Hotel. Warren's father, Warren the 12th, dies before the events of the story. Since Warren the 13th is too young to manage the hotel, his uncle Rupert takes the reins. However, this proves to be the hotel's undoing: Rupert is so lazy and buffoonish that the hotel begins losing business, and deteriorating. To make things worse, Rupert has married a horrible woman named Annaconda, who acts sweet towards him, but vicious to everyone else. Did we mention that she's a literal witch?

The hotel is said to contain an ancient, powerful treasure called the All-Seeing Eye. Annaconda craves its power, and she's got a mysterious apprentice and her sisters, Scalene and Isosceles, to back her up. But Warren's not alone. He has friends to help him out too. Oh, and what of the mysterious bandage-faced stranger who just checked in?

!!Tropes found in ''The All-Seeing Eye'' include:
* AllLovingHero: One of Warren's defining characteristics. Despite his {{Gonky}} appearance, he's very a very sweet child who loves animals and takes good care of the hotel.
* ByTheLightsOfTheirEyes:
** Sketchy, the monster in the dark boiler room, is introduced this way, ominously glaring at Warren from the darkness.
** During Aunt Annaconda's VillainousBreakdown, she is only drawn in silhouette, except for her eyes. This, combined with her now frazzled hair and tall, thin body, makes her look like something out of Creator/DrSeuss's nightmares.
* DarkIsEvil: The pages of Annaconda's scenes are colored black.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Sketchy is a giant red-eyed octopus monster who lives in the hotel's boiling room. He's also an adorably sweet creature who just wants a friend!
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: The friendly monster Sketchy heavily resembles an octopus.
* EvilRedhead: Isosceles, one of the witches, has long red hair.
* {{Gonk}}: Warren is described as looking toad-like, thanks to his huge eyes, elongated jaw, and misshapen teeth. This is a minor source of angst for him, as all the other Warrens before him were known for being physically attractive.
* HellishPupils:
** Subverted with Sketchy, who looks terrifying in part to his slit-shaped pupils, but turns out to be very friendly.
** Aunt Annaconda gains these during her VillainousBreakdown.
* MacGuffin: The All-Seeing Eye. Everyone wants it for its legendary power.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When Warren is in the boiler room, we see a bunch of creepy red eyes glowering at him. Subverted when it turns out that the monster they belong to, Sketchy, is very friendly and means no harm at all.
* SavageWolves: The witch Scalene can transform into a vicious wolf.
* TakingYouWithMe: Aunt Annaconda eventually decides that if she can't have the All-Seeing Eye, then ''no'' one can, so she [[spoiler:starts casting a spell to kill everyone]].
* VillainousBreakdown: Aunt Annaconda gets so fed up with the heroes getting in her way that [[spoiler:she casts one final spell to destroy the hotel and everyone in it in a fit of rage]]. Adding to the NightmareFuel is the fact that she looks much more disheveled when she does this.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: The three witches have "spirit animals" that they can transform into at any time: Scalene turns into a wolf, Isosceles turns into a vulture, and Annaconda turns into [[spoiler:a snail]].
* TheWeirdSisters: The witches Annaconda, Scalene, and Isosceles.
* WickedWitch: In her first appearance, Annaconda is described as a witch. It initially just seems like the author's way of describing how cruel she is, but then we learn that "witch" is absolutely literal. She and her sisters are genuine, black-magic-casting witches who crave power.
