My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series by Claire Luana, 5 stars.

This series is centered around Wren, a teenage girl who has had a rough start to life. The only thing she is good at is baking. She is an apprentice at a bakery and it’s not the best life, but it’s better than she’s had. Then she gets the dream of her life — a chance to be in the Confectioner’s Guild. It is a dream come true. But the dream quickly turns bad. She is thrust into suspicion and plots beyond what she can believe. Things seem darker as the books continue, but Wren quickly learns to believe in herself and trust in her friends. Can they turn things around and make it better for all the people who live there? Or will the price be too large?

This series is incredible. It is unlike anything I have read before and the author weaves a world that feels so real, you quickly become part of it. This is a series for all ages, not just young adult. The characters are great! There are some you love and others you love to hate. Plus you really see them grow as the series moves on.

If you are a fan of magic, great worlds, and excellent characters, this series is for you and I highly recommend it.

The Confectioner Chronicle by Claire Luana
5 stars!!!!!

I have to say that this series is a really great read. Whether you are sat on a beach or just relaxing at home this is a perfect read. I enjoyed this series a lot even though it wasn’t my go to genre. I really like how the author was able to weave just enough drama and intrigue into the story. Each book blends right with the one before it.

Book 1
The Confectioner’s Guild (The Confectioner Chronicles book 1) by Clarie Luana

What can I say but I absolutely have fallen for this series. The author has such a unique way of
bringing the characters to life and I felt as though I was actually in the story. The refreshing
way that you are drawn into the book and just feel as though you are escaping into the world that the author has developed. I just couldn’t put this book down.

I really felt drawn to Wren from the very start. The drama that unfolds around her brings you to
the edge of your seat with anticipation. I liked how the author was able to not only throw in drama and intrigue but also weaved in just the touch of romance to boot. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Wren, Sable and Hale. Into the mix you have the chemistry between Wren and Lucas. The whole dynamic just adds to the intrigue in the book. I really cannot wait for the next book in this series. To get to delve more into the lives of the Confectioners and their world alongside the other guilds and see where the magic leads.

Book 2
The Confectioner’s Coup (Confectioner Chronicles Book 2) by Claire Luana

I am once again no let down. This is the second book in this series and the third book including the prequel to the series that I have read. The author really has such a great way of grabbing the reader and keeping you at the edge of your seat. I really found myself getting lost in this magical confectioner’s world she has created.

Book 3
The Confectioner’s Truth (Confectioner Chronicles Book 3) by Claire Luana

I couldn’t wait to get delved into this book and boy I wasn’t disappointed. This is the third book in the series and fourth one I have read by this author. The books just keep getting better and better. I was drawn in from the first page and couldn’t put the book down.

The author does such a wonderful job of keeping the drama going from book to book. There seems to be a smooth transition from the fist straight through to the third book in this series. To get to follow more the lives of Wren and her fellow confectioners as the head into the pending war kept me glued to the edge of my seat. The way that the drama unfolds keeps your attention. I wasn’t disappointed as I continued to read as the drama unfolded in this book. I really will be reading more from this author in the future and hopefully there will be more in this series.

I have to say that the more I read about Wren’s life the more I really find I am drawn to her character. She has gone through so much in her short time in the Guild and then to have to endure more. She is a very strong leading character and the author does such a great job of developing her character around the drama that unfolds. I really felt all the emotions vicariously as Wren went through them and in this book she has a roller coaster of them. She winds up losing so much and yet she still has Lucas. I really felt my heart in my throat as the book came to the ending and once again to have the book on a cliff hanger of sorts really has me anxious for the next book in the series. I will definitely be reading more from this author and the series.

The characters just seem to jump right out of the pages and into your imagination. I felt as though I was part of the action as it all unfolded. I really found the concept of the series to be quite unique and refreshing. The story is quite well written and easy to read. I definitely recommend this sereies and this author.

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series contains all the instalments of The Confectioner’s Chronicles by Claire Luana. This is a really wonderful, imaginative and beautifully written series- with fantasy, mystery, magic, intrigue, adventure, danger, suspense, humour, fun, heartache, tension, conflict, hostile enemies, disappearances, investigations, romance, food, surprises, twists, drama, and action. I have adored all Ms. Luana’s books, and this series is no exception! She really knows how to weave a spellbinding story that hooks her readers right from the beginning.

The series consists of:
-The Confectioner’s Guild (Book #1)
-The Confectioner’s Coup (Book #2)
-The Confectioner’s Truth (Book #3)
-The Confectioner’s Exile (Prequel Novella)

The characters are so beautifully crafted- quirky, fully realised individuals who continued to develop and grow over the course of the series. They were so enchanting and added an extra element of appeal and interest to the whole story.
Ms Luana has created a unique and wonderful world in which to set her story. Her imagination seems to know no bounds as she brings so many creative and unique elements to her storylines. It’s so wonderfully written- full of visual texture and intricate detailing. The story is complex- with many layers, all beautifully interwoven and stitched together quite seamlessly to produce these delightful reads.

All I can say is WOW- this series is well worth the read!

Thank you, Ms. Luana!

The Confectioner Chronicles is a four-book series by author Claire Luana.

Reluctantly she goes with him to meet the GuildMaster and thrown into a world she never knew existed and discovers an ability she never knew she possessed.

But when the Guild Master is poisoned after eating of her cupcakes, she only has a limited time to prove her innocence and find out who really framed her before the king’s inquisitor arrives.

This is an interesting fantasy filled with mystery story with many twists and twists as well as fun characters.

Being such a wild ride, the reader will be hooked from the beginning.

The series The Confectioner Chronicles is a great Ya series by Claire Luana. Claire Luana has an imagination that you can see clearly while reading her books. This series has been created in a world that food has become part of the magic in this world. There is an underlying theme of trust (with magical desserts to help). There is mystery, fantasy, magic, danger, secrets, and skeletons in the closet to go around. The stories take you on a wild ride. I recommend to set enough time to read the stories in one setting.So sit down relax with your favorite beverage, favorite comfy clothes, and a favorite blanket and enjoy Claire Luana’s The Confectioner’s Chronicles.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read these as individual stories and waiting for the next story to drop was painful at times (I can be a little Veruca Salti-sh at times.

These stories are full of all the things that make a good YA fantasy series live up to its expectations. There are wonderful friendships, adventure, intrigue, baked goods, action, and a fast paced narrative. This is a very engaging tale and i would recommend it to old and young alike.

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series
By: Claire Luana
5 out of 5 stars

This is a series that I loved reading. It has all four of the stories in the Confectioner Chronicle series that are fun and entertaining to read. It has wonderful characters that I fell in love with and wanted them to succeed in whatever they did. There is action, danger, romance, and suspense in these books. There are times when I was turning pages wondering what was going to happen next. I loved the character of Wren. She is strong, intelligent, and independent. Her story is one that pulled me in from the very beginning and didn’t let me go until I read the final page of the final story. This is a YA fantasy novel and I loved how the books included magic and mystery. Besides Wren, there are other characters that I grew to care about and enjoyed reading about them and their interactions with Wren. Many of them are helpful to her. Then there are those with their own agenda what will do anything to make their plans and agenda happen. Don’t miss out on an exciting series that you won’t be able to put down. I highly recommend it. The stories that are included in this set are The Confectioner’s Guild/The Confectioners Coup/The Confectioner’s Truth/The Confectioner’s Exile.

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series ​by​ Claire Luana​ – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery SeriesThe Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series by Claire Luana
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series ​by​ Claire Luana​ ​is a unique YA fantasy, thriller, romance series that is full of magic and the unusual and should not be missed. It is also a murder mystery that is action packed and well paced. Claire weaves her magic with just the right amount of mystery and suspense, action and danger, romance and intrigue, heartache and love, humour and fun. I enjoyed the story so much that it finished before I was ready and I didn’t even notice because I was so enthralled to find out what was going to happen next.
In book 1 Wren was falsely accused of murder by cupcake and has a month to find out who framed and who the actual murderer is and clear her name.

In book 2 Wren having barely survived, she is having to face enemies, both old and new as she tries to solve the mystery behind disappearing Guild members.

In book 3 Wren is heartbroken and still reeling from the loss and betrayal of others. On the run, tired, scared, hurt and faced with her past all the while the political unrest continues and Wren wonders if she will ever have her family back and lead a normal life again.

This series should be on everyone’s reading list. I mean books in one stop what could be better.

The Confectioner’s Truth (The Confectioner Chronicles #3) by Claire Luana – Review by Emily Walsh

The Confectioner's Truth (Confectioner Chronicles Book 3)The Confectioner’s Truth
ByClaire Luana
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Confectioner’s Truth (The Confectioner Chronicles #3) by Claire Luana was an epic conclusion to a equally epic series.

The final book in The Confectioner Chronicles, we are taking to the secrets that Wren hides, and ones we finally get to learn the full truth about. Picking up almost where the last book leaves off, there is no stopping this epic fantasy. As the danger lurks closer, the suspense thickened, I was on the edge of my seat for most, I at times even forgot to breathe! This book, was damn near perfect, and as much as I didn’t want to leave this world, or these characters, all things must come to a end. I have to say, as this being one of my favorite series of 2018, I’m feeling pretty satisfied with the ending.

There is nothing else to say, outside of the wonderful detail and the top notch writing that is consistent throughout the series. This is a series to all, and I highly recommend you get your hands on it. Please take my golden stamp of approval, that you will get lost in this beautiful, wonderful world of magic, betrayal, love and above all, friendship.

Happy Reading
