The Confectioner's Truth (Confectioner Chronicles Book 3)The Confectioner’s Truth by Claire Luana
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about decisions. After King Imbris’ death in the last novel, Emperor Evander rules over the kingdom of Alesia and people ad guild members alike are forced to swear oaths of loyalty. But when a baker goes missing and citizens start acting strangely, Wren and her friends try to escape with their lives before it’s too late. On the run, they search for Lucas and new allies so they can stad up to the emperor and free their people. But is anywhere truly safe from the might of Aprica?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldnt put down. well developed characters in new allies like Ansel as a harsh exterior but caring underneath or Dash as more than just a soldier and Hale’s struggle to do the right thing was emotive and perfectly written. A spine chilling villain in Daemastra. i loved the sense of family sticking together no matter what with Imbris and family not always being related with the Confectioners which was emotive and beautifully written.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel with hidden bays full of secret beauty with its forests ad wild sea with the hardy sailors and warriors. And the sense of colour in the fruit markets o the island. also the contrast with the Apricans crisp uniforms and the too white kitchen was perfectlyl written.
Once again the sense of exploration as the characters go further outside of Maradis with more islands and lands out there, with maps at the start to make locations clear to the reader. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
