The South Coast High School Trilogy: History, Deception, & Decisions is now available! These books tell the story of Natasha Bennett’s final year of high school told in three parts (it’s a long story!) …
Mistry by Moonlight is an amazing book. I loved how the author made the plot, leading one thing to another… [and] admired how [she] added many supernatural beings which allowed the story to become more interesting and surprising.
[In Mistry by Moonlight], the author does a good job balancing Taylor's internal struggle with the outer conflict.
I truly enjoyed Mistry by Moonlight. It had an amazing plot, and I couldn't put the book down. It was an addictive read, as well as a life lesson.
In Knowing Nora, Nora Hadley gives a voice to the young girls who have fallen for the wrong man entirely.
[In Mistry by Moonlight], you can feel the turmoil as it gets too much for the main character and she can’t seem to find her way, no matter what she tries. Add in sparks of romance, and yearning for love, and it gives you a very good story.
Fans of the supernatural genre will love [Forever Ruby] and its twists and turns, as Ruby tries to figure out who is helping and hindering her on this journey of self-discovery.
[Forever Ruby] is a truly magnificent book… I love this book, I love the characters, and how many of them seem so mysterious, and I really like the relationship between Cole and Ruby; I found them loving and magnificent.
[Mistry by Moonlight is] pitched to the teenage market but a well written and great read even for older adults. I enjoyed the mystery and supernatural themes.
[Mistry by Moonlight is] not your typical young adult fantasy novel. It goes against the grain of what you’d expect from the genre, and leaves a satisfying feeling from a compelling and inventive story.
[Knowing Nora] tastefully explores some taboos, and the importance for young people to have a good set of individual values. The characters will tug at your heart strings and remind you to always have hope.
[Knowing] Nora’s angst is relatable and endearing.
Forever Ruby is an intriguing walk through the supernatural, guided by our protagonist Ruby as she transitions between her ordinary life, and the extraordinary where ‘living’ finds a whole new meaning. The characters are both enjoyable, relatable and perfect for young adult readers.
[Foresight is] beautifully written.
Claire really shines with [South Coast Son]. She brought her characters to life, made you experience Sam's world, what he goes through, and makes you hold your breath as the story keeps going.
The characters in Claire Merchant’s books are so relatable. I feel like I know them, and they’re friends of mine.
Mistry at Dawn is a thrilling conclusion to Claire Merchant’s Mistry Trilogy. Highly recommended!
I love her writing style, and always feel like I am taken away to South Coast every time I read her books. The detail and the time she puts into creating her characters is amazing, and I absolutely love reading about her characters, and love how all her books intertwine into each other some way or another.
[A Lady Born, A Pirate Bred] I love this! It really was an enjoyable read and great imagery and setting. Fabulous, Claire!
Claire is undoubtedly one of the best writers I’ve come across. She manages to draw readers in, time, and time again, and causes them to forget reality and get lost in her world.
Claire’s way with words is truly magical. As someone who can’t resist a good love story, I was surprised when I got to the end of [Forever Ruby] to realise that Claire had managed to perfectly capture the entire relationship without the characters sharing even a single kiss. Throw in a little mystery, add a touch of the unknown, and you've got the perfect recipe for a great story.
[Knowing Nora is] the only book to have ever drawn me in so much that it made me cry. It’s written so well that you can’t help becoming invested in the characters and, while the relationship is one that is usually frowned upon, you find yourself wanting it to work for the sake of the characters.
Unique, beautiful, and inspiring is a few of many words that best describe author Claire Merchant. Claire’s love and passion for storytelling comes to life in all her books, where she creates characters and worlds full of adventure and personal journeys that engross readers from the first chapter.
Claire brings each of her characters to life with her brilliant writing. Her books take you on an adventure where you feel you become a part of the story.
Claire Merchant’s books are awesome!! I swear, her imagination is contagious so the characters become so real as I read.
[South Coast Son is] Beautifully written!! Within a couple of pages you get immersed in Sam’s mind, and see the world through his eyes. Even after putting the book down I feel like I have taken a part of Sam with me.
I’ve been a big fan of Claire Merchant since her first book, Mistry by Moonlight! I’m so glad it became a trilogy. All of her books are a great read, and each one has a great story, which grips me to read more! I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to escape reality for a few hours to submerse themselves in the wonderful world of South Coast!
