Book Description

I had
always loved the color blue.


So when
I first met him, naturally it was his blue eyes that had me taking notice,
rather than what he was saying, which it should have been, because what he was
saying eventually changed my life.


When Chloe McGarry moves from her home in California to
an English estate rich in history, she isn't sure what to expect. She never
dreamed she'd get caught up in a mystery that has lasted for more than eight
hundred years, nor that she'd fall in love with two gorgeous guys.


Chloe's never been lucky in love that is until she meets
Oliver Tarrant. He's charming, interested in her and amazing looking.


Her new home holds many mysteries. Out one
day exploring the grounds she stumbles across Tristan Dearing. Tristan is
enigmatic and beautiful. Initially hostile he tries to keep himself apart from
Chloe until she uncovers his secret; a secret he has been keeping for 800
years.


As Chloe helps him unravel the secrets kept
from him in the past by his family they fall in love.


Who can resist the enigmatic and beautiful knight Tristan
Dearing and then again, who can resist falling in love with the charismatic and
loving Oliver Tarrant?


As Chloe, Oliver and Tristan form an unexpected alliance
they must work together to save each other from the 800 year old magic spell
which threatens to destroy Tristan forever.


Chloe must travel back in time to save Tristan and find
the real reason Oliver looks so familiar to Tristan.


Will Chloe's life ever be the same again?

Will Oliver's life ever be the same and what does the
future hold for the three friends and lovers?


This is the beginning of a love story that so far spans
five books.


A story sprinkled with romance, magic, mystery, danger, love,
intrigue, jealously and the influence of the past.


Adult paranormal romance genre this series is not
recommended for under eighteens.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you want to escape....., August 7, 2011
By ajmets
This review is from: Spellbinding and The Spell Breaker combined (The Seven Spell Saga) (Kindle Edition)
If you want to read a book that whisks you away out of your world than this is the series for you. The tale woven by this author is one of intrigue, passion and adventure. Each character has a personality and it's the background the author slowly fills in that aids you in relating to him/her. I found myself frustrated at Chloe, crying for Chloe or Tristan or Oliver and cheering them in turn. Is it a fantasy world? Of course but that's what you want when you read to escape. I found myself wanting more when I finished the final book and I truly hope Tessa weaves some more magic for me. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars More please.... April 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all the available books (so far) in this series (one after another as I couldn't help it) and have also sneak peaked the first chapter of the next book (that's available on the author's website). I loved it. I loved all of the main characters and the author did an amazing job. I want more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lose yourself in this magical adventure February 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
It's hard enough being eighteen, without the added pressure of a move to a new country, settling into a new home, building friendships with a new set of kids. When Chloe's family relocates to the UK she does her best to settle in, adopt British ways and restart her life.

As she starts to make new friends she finds herself in a dilemma - two gorgeous guys, and she's falling in love with them both.

The mysterious Tristan, a chivalrous knight trapped for 800 years in the body of a nineteen year old. The down to earth Oliver, a website designer, not quite as exciting on the surface but perhaps a better bet for a conventional relationship - but if you think he's boring, you need to wait till you reach the end.

The three friends work together to try and unravel Tristan's mystery, and set in motion a chain of events which leads to discovery, magic, time travel and ultimately tragedy.

This is one of those books that's easy to lose yourself in. The imagery woven by Stokes is electric, ranging from beautiful English countryside to medieval castles, contemporary settings to Norman life. Crusades, Magi, magic potions, secret passages, ancient ruins - this book pretty much has it all.

I loved the way the author so skilfully weaves from an archaeological dig in the 21st century to the same setting in the 12th century. There was a lot of well researched factual content which gently slotted into the story without being over-powering.

If you love fantasy, but want a change from vampires, zombies and werewolves, this is a book you mustn't miss.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard to read September 22, 2011
By Amanda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Spellbinding (The Seven Spell Saga) is a decent book with a good plot; and at $0.99 for my Kindle, it's a great price. Still, I had a very difficult time reading this book. I have been an avid reader since I was a small child, and I can generally get through any book (even boring, long-winded authors), but this book hurt. This is written in first person, and follows a kind of stream of consciousness that is hard to follow. Maybe it's the Kindle version, but I am finding that I miss punctuation. There are so many run-on sentences and rambling thoughts that I actually had a hard time figuring out what is happening in the story. The number of times I actually lost track of what was being described in the first chapter alone is staggering. So get this book, enjoy the characters and plot if you can, but put any expectation of this book being well written to the side. If you think of it as a friend telling you a story about her day (with lots of side bars, vagrant thoughts, and disjointed sentences), it isn't terrible. Good luck.

3.0 out of 5 stars editor's nightmare August 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I agree with Amanda's review, it was very hard to read. There is a reason for viewing a sample of the book. The writing was so poor with incomplete sentences, run-on sentences and poor use of punctuation. Sometimes the author's thought process was better understond if the sentence was read backwards. It took longer then usual to read this book as sentences had to be read more than once to understand the author's point. The sample gives you a taste of the poor quality of writing. However, the story was compelling enough to trudge through the poor writing. An editor needs to review this book! Until then, these books should be free!

5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding for sure!!! May 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
In this, the first book of the series, Tessa Stokes develops, through the narrative voice of Chloe, an easy paced style in which the normal preoccupations of a teenage girl lately arrived in a new place [making friends, applying to college, getting `wheels` etc.] blend seamlessly with a quest which will lead into the world of medieval necromancy, the Crusades, and a legend which has living and potentially dangerous repercussions.

Chloe`s parents have recently moved from America to England to open a restaurant in an English rural setting which has connections with antiquity. With some initial uncertainty [she reserves the option of going back to the sun and surf of California] Chloe joins them and is soon finding her way into the scene - birthday parties, meetings at the Kool Kafe, listening to her brother`s newly formed band, following up on her own projects in visual art. All very normal on the surface, though when the enigmatic and vulnerable Tristan begins to confide in her, explaining the mysterious circumstances of their first strange meeting, the story enters a new dimension, involving secret documents from the past, a magical stained glass window, together with an archeological dig of an old ruin which promises to reveal dark truths, and people with shadowy motives for controlling what is known.

The mysterious Tristan is set beside Chloe`s other new friend, Oliver - warm, likeable, down-to-earth, and, quite importantly, very attracted to Chloe; as she negotiates this situation, Chloe has to deal with the conflict of having strong romantic feelings for both the young men.

As the plot thickens, so does the suspense, and we soon find ourselves in the thrall of a gripping tale, and one which reaches an exciting climax - this is only volume one! - before developing into a five volume epic.

A five star read for anyone into paranormal urban fantasy and romance.
