My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.
5/5 stars!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Claire Luana is an excellent YA author. With me saying that I love her books. I am finding more and more authors in the YA section that I enjoy reading. The Confectioner’s Coup is a mystery, fantasy, magic, and danger all wrapped into one. This is the second book and with that being said I would read the other book because you will have the background information. Wren is looking for the Guilds, who just happening to be missing more and more. Wren is not sure why they are missing. Will Wren find the Guilds in time? Will she have her answers she is looking for? I cannot wait to read book 3.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Confectioners Coup by Claire Luana is the second book in the Confectioner Chronicles. This series ideally needs to be read in order as it follows the same character on her journey.
This author effortlessly pulls you back into Wrens story and the troubles she is facing. With new enemies and a dangerous mission ahead of her Wren has to put her wits and courage to the test once more.
This series for me keeps getting better. Each book is a new turn in the road and it is making this a very exciting journey. I found this book to be fast paced and intriguing. I cannot wait to see what book 3 has in store!

The Confectioner’s Coup by Claire Luana
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about thinking things through. Wren survived the ordeals of the first novel and is trying to resume her normal life. When her and Callidus are on the trail of a Gifted ice cream maker, they are attacked by mysterious men in black. However, the ice cream maker Thom joins them and is a fast friend. As war looms and tensions rise, Guild members start mysteriously disappearing., including Thom. Can Wren and her friends solve the mystery and find Thom before war threatens them all?
a great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. I loved the character development of people such as Calliidus, as a kind and caring man underneath it all or Hale not just being a reckless fool which was brilliantly written. Also the King returns as a spinechilling force to be reckoned with. I loved the use of tension throughout the novel, as conflicts arose for Wren in a fantasy world with its own laws and society and politics.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel and the vivid sense of colour in the blues of the lake and the greens of the islands, and also sun and sand in Hales account of his home later on. Or the wedding scenes with colourful bright and detailed dresses against the dark of the black carriages and Black Guards. which contrasted perfectly.
a great example of building upon a fantasy world in a sequel with the Celestans and their cultures and traditional wedding dresses. Or the Apricans with their Viking like nature and their sea faring ways to explore more to this world outside Maradis. I also loved the use of maps at the start which was a lovely touch and gave a clear location to the reader. Overall, a great read and I would give five stars.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

The Confectioner’s Coup is the second book in The Confectioner Chronicles by Claire Luana. This book/series is an exceptionally good fantasy story, intricately woven with action, adventure, danger, mystery, suspense, humour, fun, heartache, tension, conflict, hostile enemies, disappearances, investigations, and a sprinkle of romance. I adore Ms. Luana’s books, and this series is no exception- so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book and continue the story. To say I had high expectations would be an understatement, but I just knew Ms. Luana wouldn’t let me down- and she definitely didn’t.
The story is multi-faceted and incredibly detailed, with wonderful descriptions and masterful world-building bringing the whole story to life right before my eyes. The characters are so beautifully crafted- fully realised individuals who continue to develop and grow over the course of the story. Once again Ms. Luana proves her mastery of language and storytelling, bringing another fascinating and spellbinding story into ‘being’! I was so captivated by this wonderful story, that I read it all in one sitting- completely enthralled from beginning to end.
All I can say is WOW!
Bring on Book #3!

Thank you for creating this wonderful story/series Ms. Luana!

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

5 Stars

This was the continued story of Wren and I loved it as much as the first part of this series. She just can’t win when it comes to staying out of the line of fire with being framed for murder and getting out of that to now suspecting the king of being behind guild members being kidnapped and now the enemy has entered the city.

There was some parts of this story that made me so angry and then parts that were so so sad. You don’t really ever know what your gonna get when you open up one of this authors books and I love that.

Can’t wait for the next story in this series, I have so many questions about Hale and what his future holds as well as Wren and the Guild itself.

I Love this series and I love this author and I highly recommend starting at the beginning and reading these books and let me also mention that the covers on these books are completely awesome!!

Loved it!

The Confectioner’s Coup (Confectioner Chronicles Book 2)
By: Claire Luana
5 out of 5 stars

The story The Confectioner’s Coup (Confectioner Chronicles Book 2) by Claire Luana is a fantasy book. It one that has action, danger, romance, and mystery. I found myself turning pages trying to find out what was going to happen next. It is the next exciting book in a wonderful series. Wren has found herself with a bit of time on her hands. She is someone who has always been busy and it is an unusual feeling. Wren has survived being falsely framed for murder. Now situations occur that have her and others in harm’s way. There is a hostile army outside the gates. Will they take over the city? Members of the Guilds begin to disappear. Wren suspects who is behind the disappearances. Her investigation will have her facing old and new enemies. Will Wren find the truth behind the disappearances? Will she find the missing Guild members? How much danger is the city really in? Read this book to find out. I enjoyed reading about Wren and the relationship that she has with her boyfriend. This book has a bit more romance than the last one. This was a book that was a more emotional ride for me. I have grown to love many of the characters since reading the first book and now with this one I was not only rooting for them to succeed in whatever actions they take but also for them to find happiness in their lives. There are moments of suspense that had me having to tell myself to breathe. I love how the story has plenty of detail and I felt like I was right there with the characters. There are some twists and turns that I did not see coming. Once I started reading, I had a hard time putting down. Highly recommended.

I love this series! The plot is easy flowing and engaging. It pulls me in right from the beginning, sitting on the edge of your seat suspense. I highly recommend reading the previous books in this series to get the full enjoyment of the characters. In this story Wren suspects that the King is behind the disappearance of Guild members. Will she find them or will limits be pushed to far? I love Wren’s character, she is strong, fun and just a great character. Her story is a must read!

Wren, suspecting the king is to blame for the disappearances, undertakes a dangerous investigation that sets her on a collision course with old and new enemies alike. Will she be able to find the missing guild members before tensions boil over into outright rebellion? Or are the guilds willing to go further than she ever realized to rid themselves of the king’s tyranny…
