The Confectioner’s Guild (The Confectioner Chronicles #1) by Claire Luana was a fast pace, unique read that had me hooked from the first cupcake till the last.
My first read by this author, I went in with a open mind, as I love these types of weird quirky books. What a fun read, it was everything I was hoping it would be and more. Claire Luana open this book running and quickly the plot is under way, and we are just as shocked, confused and bewildered as poor Wren. That type of opening can be tricky, but the with the author’s smooth, detailed writing, it worked beyond belief.
As for Wren our MC, I liked her from the start. Right away she gives you some of her sad backstory, her life but still left something hidden, that you don’t get to know until later. She has a good head on her shoulders and it helped her throughout this adventure. You can see her change as the story goes on, she get less skittish and, gains confidence lacked before being snached away.
As for the overall plot and mystery, I will say I had that figured out pretty fast, but it didn’t take away form the funnes that it this read. As I said the writing is solid, detail and a treat to the eyes. But I will say though I had the main players figured out, I didn’t see all it coming. That added that extra something special, that made this story all the more wickedly good.
Overall this book is a must read, so please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that this book will hook you, if not for the adventure, then it will be the cupcakes.
