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 adore this author! I enjoyed her Moonburner series but after reading this book, I know I’m going to love this one! Claire Luana is so talented and imaginative. Who would have thought about putting magic in cupcakes?

Wren doesn’t know she possesses magic and infuses it in the desserts she makes. The secret is revealed to her when she’s asked to join the Confectioners Guild. Unfortunately she’s framed for murder soon after. Now she must navigate her way through the political and magical mess to clear her name. Not knowing who to trust, Wren must get to the bottom of the conspiracy.

This is the first book in this series and it will keep you intrigued until the very end. Just when you think you have it figured out, the author throws another loop at you. I loved the characters and the storyline is so interesting. Towards the end I was literally holding my breath waiting to see what would happen. I can’t wait to read the next part!

The Confectioner’s Guild (The Confectioner Chronicles Book 1)
By Claire Luana

The Confectioner’s Guild by Claire Luana is the first book in the Confectioner Chronicles series. I have to say I loved the prequel and this book is written just as well. The writing style of this author is quite enjoyable. The series is aimed at the YA readers but can be enjoyed by us adults as well. The author has made the characters in this book quite enjoyable and its was a pleasure to have read this book and I do look forward for more instalments. In this book we have mystery, magic and cooking. Not your normal mixture in a book but it works well. So, grab yourself a copy of the book and have an enjoyable time in getting to know not only the characters but the authors wonderful way of telling a story.

5++++ Stars

Let me start by saying what an absolutely beautiful cover this book has and although that was one reason I was drawn to it, it was actually the authors name that had me knowing I had to read it.

This is my 3rd book by this author and I don’t even know what words to use to explain how I appreciate the world building, character forming, and extreme attention to detail this author puts into her stories. I don’t even read fantasy type storylines but Miss Luana’s are so so amazing that I can’t help but savor every single word.

“This is all to say that sometimes, what feels like nothing is really something. You may have more cards in your hand than you realize. You need only play them when the time is right.”

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..you have to read this and I can not wait for more of this series, I will be one of the first in line to read more!!

Awesome, Amazing, Incredible, Brilliant, and simply Fantastical!!

Loved it!!

The Confectioner's Guild (The Confectioner Chronicles, #1)The Confectioner’s Guild by Claire Luana
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Confectioner’s Guild by Claire Luana is the first book in The Confectioner Chronicles series. This book is full of mystery, magic, and cooking. Wren is an amazing cook and soon finds herself in the Confectioner’s Guild. Here she learns more about herself and that she has special magical powers. After the death of the head of the guild after eating her cupcake she learns more about not only herself but this guild that she has been brought into. The characters are well written and the story drew me in from the beginning. Not only is Wren a great character but there are also many others. The cupcake on the cover might have made me curious but I am so glad I gave this book a go. I look forward to reading more in this series.
