What a fun, fantastic series that will delight readers of all ages. This collection contains four books from Luana that are simply captivating. I picked up these books individually and can not recommend highly enough the entire collection. It was fun, whimsical, fast paced, delightfully detailed. I found myself devouring each book as quickly as I could put my hands on them. Wonderful pieces from Luana, who never seems to disappoint. Highly recommend.

I absolutely loved this collection of stories!! They were so magical with a good amount of suspense and along with it some fantastic plot twists and turns. I really liked the characters and I loved reading about them. One of the things I loved about this series is how unique it was and I loved the author’s writing. The stories were written it in such an engaging way that I couldn’t put them down. Having read books by her previously I know that her world building is usually good but I thought that it was excellent in this series. I really liked Wren and I actually liked that I had to work hard to get to understand her, I found her character really intriguing but there was something about her that I just instantly liked. She was a fantastic, strong heroine to read about. I think I would definitely like one of the deserts that she bakes!! All of the characters in the stories were great to read about.
I 100% recommend this series – it was a fantastic read!

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series by Claire Luana

5 +++++ Stars

I absolutely loved this series. It contains 4 books and I highly recommend reading them all in order.

 

The Confectioner’s Guild – 

This one was so unique and the added suspense and mystery had me hooked from page 1 and the last 25% of the book I was on the edge of my seat wondering how in the world she was going to make this all work…Brilliant is just one of the words that come to mind. So many things happen in this story that I’m not even going to try to sum it up

 

The Confectioner’s Exile – 

After reading the Confectioner’s Guild book 1 in this series it was completely awesome to go back and read Hale’s story. I don’t normally like doing this but it worked perfectly for me in this case. I was able to get a much better understanding of who Hale is and where he came from, and the lessons and the tragic losses he experienced along the way.

 

The Confectioner’s Coup – 

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.

 

The Confectioner’s Truth –

There was a lot going on in this story, we met a lot of new people and visited many new places..I loved this part and I felt as if I was right there with Wren as she was making quick decisions and having a lot of inner battles…I found myself trying to help her and felt like I was feeling everything she was. This character has grown so much through these books and I have totally fallen in love with her, and poor Hale…I miss what feels like the old days with Hale and now there he is regretting so many things, this made me sad.

 

This author has done an amazing job with this series. I’ve loved every word and every page of all of these books. I absolutely can not wait to read them all again!! She ended this series beautifully and in my humble opinion sets the bar high for any other books in this genre. 

 

Brilliant and I can’t wait to read what is to come from this author!! This is one of those books/series that deserves so much more than 5 stars.

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.

4 Stars

I’ve read the author’s Moonburner series which I really enjoyed. After reading this prequel, it looks like she has another winning series. I’m excited to read the rest. This story is about Hale Firena’s life before he joined the Confectioners Guild. He is a rich spoiled brat of a high ranking government official until there was a coup d’état. Now Hale, along with his mother and brother, are political refugees running for their lives. There are plenty of obstacles and challenges on their journey out of the country. Hale needs to learn that things will not be handed to him on a silver platter anymore and his ego gets taken down a few notches. Though he lives through some devastating experiences, luck is on his side.

To be honest, Hale annoyed me through the first half of the book. He was spoiled rotten and I didn’t like his attitude. Once he dropped his pretentions, I definitely warmed up to him. The good thing is that the action starts almost at the beginning and continues throughout the whole book. Towards the end, I was biting my nails with the excitement and danger. This was a fun adventurous read worthy to be a part of this series.

Four Stars

In this prequel we learn about Hale. We see how he grew up and what made him become such a loyal man. I really liked this story. The imagination put into it to make it come to life. To dream up a world that is of something so powerful and serial. The author gives us background for what we read in The Confectioners Guild. The adventures are well thought out and detailed. The author didn’t miss a beat while creating this story. I like to experience different emotions while reading a book. But I mostly want to feel excitement and sadness. I sat sadness because I usually don’t want the story to end.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Confectioner’s Exile is a prequel novella in The Confectioner Chronicles, by Claire Luana. I have not read any of the other books in this series, but I have read other series by Luana. Once again, she did not disappoint. The story follows Hale, a spoiled rich boy, who has life handed to him and has never worked a day in his life. He spends his time gambling and chasing girls. That is until one night when he goes from the top of the chain, to the bottom. An instant fugitive on the run with his life on the line. The characters are wonderfully crafted, with backgrounds and relationships that are fun to read about. There are different emotions felt, creating a good balance. There are moments of carefree fun, but also some serious chapters, filled with regret, loss and motivation. I highly enjoyed it and can’t wait to see what she has in store for Hale and his future in the Confectioner’s Guild.

The Confectioner’s Exile by Claire Luana is a prequel novella to The Confectioner Chronicles. This is the backstory of Hale Firena and his life. He has always had everything he could possibly want but his life changes drastically. He must learn how to survive without relying on others. I really enjoyed this prequel and read it before I read book 1. The writing is great and the action was also good. After reading this novella I was even more excited to read the series. This is a YA series but teens and adults can enjoy this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Confectioners Exile by Claire Luana is a prequel to the Confectioners Guild series, in general I’m not a big fan of prequels, but I was able to read this before I started the series. I really enjoyed the foundation laid for the main character. It was an easy read and the book flowed really well. This is the first book I have read by this author, but I really enjoyed the writing style, story line and characters. I will be reading book one in this series today also. I really enjoyed the writing and will continue to read books not only in this series but also anything else this author does! Great read and a solid 5 stars!!!
