The Confectioner’s Exile (The Confectioner Chronicles Prequel) by Claire Luana
I’ve read the author’s Moonburner series which I really enjoyed. After reading this prequel, it looks like she has another winning series. I’m excited to read the rest. This story is about Hale Firena’s life before he joined the Confectioners Guild. He is a rich spoiled brat of a high ranking government official until there was a coup d’état. Now Hale, along with his mother and brother, are political refugees running for their lives. There are plenty of obstacles and challenges on their journey out of the country. Hale needs to learn that things will not be handed to him on a silver platter anymore and his ego gets taken down a few notches. Though he lives through some devastating experiences, luck is on his side.
To be honest, Hale annoyed me through the first half of the book. He was spoiled rotten and I didn’t like his attitude. Once he dropped his pretentions, I definitely warmed up to him. The good thing is that the action starts almost at the beginning and continues throughout the whole book. Towards the end, I was biting my nails with the excitement and danger. This was a fun adventurous read worthy to be a part of this series.
