Four beautiful girls. Quadruplets. They are not identical.
But each is named Claire.
Claire V is Clairvoyant—clear seeing with visions of the future.
Claire S is Clairsentient—clear feeling as she embraces another’s pain.
Claire A is Clairaudient—clear hearing to tap into the spirit world.
Claire C is Claircognizant—clear knowing with 100% accuracy.

Born in 1911, they first died together in 1928 at age seventeen. Two months later, they were reborn. And reborn. THE CLAIRES only live to seventeen and then they’re violently murdered. Somewhere in the world, a woman finds out she’s pregnant with quads. The Claires return to a new family as they try to break a curse that guarantees they die young.

It’s current-day Los Angeles, and once again, their seventeenth birthday is looming. Can they save themselves, clean up the streets in the name of penance, and crash their own prom?

The Claires is the first novel spin-off of the best-selling Ascenders Book Saga. Also available in paperback starting on January 14, 2020.

My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
This was an outstanding novel. Having never read the Ascenders saga I was blown away by how quickly I could fall into the story and enjoy the characters. This was dark, creepy and downright fascinating. This book follows the Claires in their previous life before the Ascenders novel takes place. I was intrigued from beginning to end and definitely want to read the Ascenders saga soon!

The sisters that were greatly hated in the previous books seem to have more development in this book that helps you understand them more. It makes you come to like them despite their bad habits and evil ways. To relieve the same age over and over again sucks and the afterlife is no better.

Having not read the original series I can't give this a full 5 star rating, but overall, I'm excited to continue on with C.L. Garber's novels.
