The Confectioner’s Coup (The Confectioner Chronicles #2) by Claire Luana was just as good as the first and, had me just as engaged and hooked.
The second book in The Confectioner Chronicles we are once again tossed back into the fire. With the happenings all concluded in the first and Wren being aquitted for a crime she didn’t even commit, things seems like they’re on the up. But, with this world and the way their monarchy works, things don’t stay quiet for long.
I will say that I was a little worried that this book may not live up to the first. As that first book was a rare read first installment where things actually concluded, and if the series were to end at that book, even with its loose ends, I would have been content. (As all first books should be). But this book has done what I’ve been yearning for, it went in and rose the bar. That’s right, this book took it up a notch and, man oh man, this was one hell of a ride.
Masterfully written this beautiful dangerous world isn’t like anything I have read before. It just keeps hitting me with new fresh ideas and plots, that I can’t believe this book, this series, isn’t more popular. Not only are we treated with talented writing but, the emotions behind that wiriting gets you right in the feels. The character are more than well rounded they’re 3D, believable and multi layer, as is the plot. I can go on and on about how utterly amazing this book/ series is, but I’m going to leave you here, so you can hop along and get this book to experience its greatness for yourself.
This book gets my highest of high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.
