Confectioner’s Coup by Claire Luana is the delicious second book in her newest series, the Confectioner Chronicles. The plot thickens in the latest instalment as an army arrives at the gates of Maradis, and the Guilds are thrown into dismay as the King struggles to gain power over them once more. But the Guild members are tired of answering to a blood thirsty King and his demands for Gifted produce from them. With an army fast approaching and Gifted guild members going missing, Wren must join forces with unexpected allies to help save the missing members and stop the King tyranny once and for all.
If only Wren’s life could be a piece of cake, first she’s framed for a murder she didn’t commit and now the possibility of a rebellion and war. The girl needs a holiday, where she can enjoy her delicious baked goods. I really loved this second installment of the Confectioner Chronicles, Claire’s writing is phenomenal and captivating. She will have you hooked after the first line. All her characters are well developed and constructed, that you can see them as real people. And her descriptions of all the food in this story will have you drooling over your book. Every time I read a passage I immediately start craving baked goods and chocolates, then I have to put the book down and go out and get some. Thankfully I work in a cake shop and chocolate is never hard to come by. Absolutely loved this book and to see how the story continues to get bigger and bigger. I can’t wait to read the third book in the series.
