The Confectioner’s Coup (Confectioners Chronicles) by Claire Luana
5 Stars

Oh my god, this book was amazing! I could not put it down. It was filled with action, lies, deceit and betrayals. Wren manages to not get executed but ends up in more trouble in this book. Guild members are getting kidnapped and an army is at the gates of Maradis ready to invade. Negotiations for the accord are not going well and there is dissension within the guilds. War is imminent and everything is falling apart, a rebellion might be the only solution.

The action starts right from the beginning and continues straight through until the end. There are so many twists and turns. When I finished reading the book, I was left speechless. Shocking events occur within this book. Characters that I didn’t really like in the first part, I found myself cheering for. Characters that I loved, I’m upset with. My emotions are all over the place. These characters go through so much in this story. Wren’s new found family has fallen apart and she’s adrift in a sea of sorrow. I am right there with her. This series keeps getting better with each additional book, I’m truly blown away. I can’t wait to read part three.

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

5 Stars!!!!!

I am once again not 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.

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 Confectioner’s Coup (Confectioner Chronicles Book 2) by Claire Luana – Review by Maura Harper

The Confectioner's Coup (Confectioner Chronicles, #2)The Confectioner’s Coup by Claire Luana
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Confectioner Chronicles Series and I suggest reading Book 1 first as this picks up only a short time after the first story ends.

As with book 1, THE CONFECTIONER’S COUP is full of well developed / well defined characters. There were a few times I was getting characters from the first book confused but there are simple explanations as to who is who which did not bog down the story.

This story has a bit more twists and turns and isn’t as shiny and bright as one would expect. I think it’s a perfect combination of dark and light – well balanced. There are characters I do not care for and that’s what makes it interesting for me. I was anxious to see if the story would go “my way” so I kept turning the pages.

I think this book would be appropriate for middle school and higher for those that like to read fantasy stories (not THOSE kinds of fantasies).

This book gets 4 solid stars from me.

The Confectioner’s Coup by Claire Luana

Four Stars

This series has gotten better with each book. This story is super sad because everyone losses so much. All the death just doesn’t seem necessary. Revenge is ugly but presents itself as this wonderful thing that will make you feel better. Hale is in that dark space and there is no out for him. He truly didn’t know how to go on. Wren was a little useless to me. I don’t understand her character. I love stories about magic. It’s a world of infinite possibilities. I also love sweets. I was at the edge of my bed reading the last few chapters waiting for the end. I was shocked and saddened by all that transpired. Let’s hope the last book gives us an HEA.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give The Confectioner’s Coup (Confectioner Chronicles Book 2) by Claire Luana, 5 stars.
*This review may contain spoilers from previous books in the series.*

Things just keep getting worse for Wren and her friends. There is an army on their city’s doorstep. Now things are happening within the Guild. Guild members are disappearing. But who is behind it? Is it the from the army threatening to attack? Or is it their own king? What can they do to resolve all this madness? At what cost?

I love this series, I have from the first book I read. I did not think it could get any better. But this book proved me wrong. It’s absolutely incredible. This book is darker than the rest as more is happening. The story pulls you in right away. There is so much happening. The characters are changing, they are growing up quickly to keep up with what is happening. They also know what they believe in — helping those they care about. This is such an intense book and you will be unable to put it down until you reach the end. Then you will quickly reach for the next book.

Yes, I completely recommend this book!

4 out of 5 stars

As if I wasn’t already invested in this series after the first book, The Confectioner’s Coup has me hooked and looking forward to reading more. I have really come to love Claire Luana’s style of writing, each story has so much to offer really making you feel every emotion. Not only is the storyline exciting and packed with twists and turns that kept me engaged from start to finish but the character development is also just as great. I have enjoyed learning more about Wren as the series progresses and seeing just what kind of chaos will find her next. As with the first book, The Confectioner’s Coup left me wanting more and anxious to see what is to come. Honestly looking forward to reading book number three of this unique, entertaining series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

I was so excited to start this book after loving the first book in the series and it was everything I wanted it to be and more. I have been so lucky to read a few books by this author now and each one has been an incredible read. Ms Luana really does have a talent for creating such unique storylines and characters – her attention to detail is excellent. I always feel like I am part of her stories and because of that attention to detail I can easily imagine what I am reading. This book definitely should be read after the first as it builds on the plot from the first story and the author adds another amazing layer to it! There were twists and turns everywhere and I honestly couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to try and find out what was going to happen next! I can’t wait to find out what happens next in the third book!!

The Confectioner's Coup (Confectioner Chronicles, #2)The Confectioner’s Coup by Claire Luana
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Confectioner’s Coup (Confectioner Chronicles Book 2) by Claire Luana is a fantasy  story that should not be missed. 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.     Wren was falsely accused of murder and barely survived, now she is having to face  enemies, both old and new as she tries to solve the mystery behind disappearing Guild  members.     There are some twists and turns that sneak up on you but once again it is a book that  should be on everyone’s to read list.

The Confectioner's Coup (Confectioner Chronicles, #2)The Confectioner’s Coup by Claire Luana
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have to say first and foremost that the covers that accompany the series of the Confectioner Chronicles are just stunning. In fact it was the cover of the first book, The Confectioner’s Guild, that first drew me into this series and sucked me into the world that Wren lives in. Like I have mentioned this is a series and The Confectioner’s Coup is the second book. I would read the first book as well as the prequel,The Confectioner’s Exile.

I could sit and talk about this book all day. Both storyline and reasons why I loved it. Each one of these books have progressively gotten better than the one before it and this one was not exception to the rule. The Confectioner’s Coup had a bit of it all; mystery, intrigue, suspense, fantasy, and just a sprinkle of romance to top it all off.

The story picks up about a month from where it left off in the last book. Wren faces more trouble in her life just as she finally gets herself out of the mess she found herself in in book one. (That detail would be a spoiler if you don’t read book one.) The King is back and still wreaking havoc. And best of all… there is another perfectly timed cliffhanger that will leave you hungry for that third book, The Confectioner’s Truth, I know I am. Thanks for another great read Ms. Luana.
