My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This box set is awesome! It has it all… romance, suspense, mystery and of course chocolate! All the things needed to make this an interesting read and a it’s a good one to waste away the day away with. Just don’t read these books on an empty stomach because the food and sweets discussed in this book sound down right sinful and I would love to try them all!
The characters in these books are another thing I should mention. They were fantastic. Even with the magic elements incorporated in them, they were relatable and they were extremely well liked. I couldn’t wait to see where their stories were going and I was sad when the end finally came around. I am looking forward to reading more by this author and I would recommend this box set to a friend!

The Confectioners Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series
By Claire Luana

The Confectioner’s Guild (The Confectioner Chronicles Book 1)
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.

The Confectioner’s Coup
The Confectioners Coup is the second book in the Confectioner Chronicles series by Claire Luana. If you enjoyed the first book, then this book will not disappoint you at all. Get yourself ready to meet new characters which you will either like or dislike, but they help make this book enjoyable. I will say this book contains so much sadness and may take you on a roller coaster of emotions. But on saying that it has a few twists and turns that you want to keep turning the page. Book one is my favorite so far in this series, but I am looking forward to book three and a nicer ending.

The Confectioner’s Truth
The Confectioner’s Truth is the third and final book this series. Please don’t start with book three I wouldn’t recommend them read a standalone. We have the pleasure of meeting some new characters in this book, each one I feel enhances the storyline. Wren went through some time in self-doubt and tries to learn from mistakes she has made. Will she be able to learn and not make the same mistakes again? The only thing I did question was why so many couples, but all in all I enjoyed the book. The thing I liked about this series is I found most of the characters to have their own strengths, I could be wrong but that’s my personal opinion! I really liked how Claire just kept building up this series, sometimes I find the last book in a series to be disappointing, but not with this book. The Confectioner’s Truth has ended this series perfectly. I would also recommend anyone and everyone to read this series, you won’t be disappointed.

The Confectioner’s Exile: The Confectioner Chronicles Prequel Novella
The Confectioner’s Exile is the prequel in the Confectioners Chronicles series by Claire Luana. This novella you find will be a nice quick read and you will find it gives the background of Hale and when he joined the guild. Yes, this novella is short, but you will still find twists and turns, love and some adventure. I did enjoy the novella and I am looking forward to reading more in the series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Confectioner Chronicles: The Complete Fantasy Mystery Series by Claire Luana is a fun series to read. I recommend reading them in order because the series is in chronological order.
The first book in the series The Confectioner’s Guild starts the 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 second book is The Confectioner’s Coup continues this series. The story continues for Wren and things are not looking good for her and others in the guild. Guild members are going missing and the King is out of control. I have enjoyed this as well as the first book and the novella. The writing is well written and entertaining. This is a twist and turn thriller that at times kept me on the edge of my seat.
The Confectioner’s Truth is the third book. The story continues with Wren and the members of the guild. There is a new ruler who is beyond bad. He rules like a madman and things are not stable for anyone. I recommend reading the other books in the series. The characters have grown and matured through the course of the series. I enjoy Wren because she is not cocky or self-centered. She is unsure of herself and does not always make the best decisions. She is rash at times and at other times she is centered and in total control. These traits make her easy to relate. There are many past characters who are back and some new ones as well.
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.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

THE DREAMERS VENGEANCE is the first book I’ve read by this author and I enjoyed the visual writing. It is a story with great world building and lots of detailed character. There were several times I found myself backtracking to figure out what was going on, but for the most part the story flowed well.

This is a book I would recommend to my younger cousins. I will definitely be reading this author again.

The Dreamer’s Vengeance
by Helen Tyree

This book drew me in right from the beginning. It is an original plot that I found intriguing. The author made this book so enriched with details that I could feel like I was right there in the thick of it. I read this book in one sitting because I so hooked I needed to know how the prophecy would be fulfilled. The characters came to life for me as I read and it wasn’t until I got further into the story that I could discern between who was good and who was evil. This is the first book I have read by this author but it will not be my last. The author did such an exceptional job weaving a wonderful fantasy world full of magic and so much more. I highly recommend this book.

The Dreamer’s Vengeance by Helen Tyree. This is not my usual type of book to read but it pulled me in and before I knew it I had read the whole thing. Its the story of the Mystical Winged people of Israa who are very peaceful until a army of vicious humans invade their land. Affiza their leader takes matters into her own hands and before she is brutally murdered she speaks of her prophecy for revenge. 75 years later and the prophecy long forgotten, a mysterious illness is taking out the Israani tribe. In search for answers to this illness 17 year old Caexia goes on a journey that leads her to Syrus a human who charms Caexia resulting in the birth of a child at the same time his forgotten wife has a child as well. Does all of this play into the foretold prophecy? Aliana may be part human but a certain wrath can be brought on at any give time. This is a fast moving read that will keep you guessing til the end.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Helen Tyree is a new author to me and for my first read from her, I read the brilliant Dreamer’s Vengeance. I was totally drawn to this book just by reading the synopsis and then it made it even better by it being a fantasy read. I’ve been reading a lot of books lately that are very mentally visual and this book is no different. This book has action and adventure and it flows from chapter to chapter with a great pace that was easy to follow.
Another brilliant thing with this read was the characters I couldn’t wait to see where their journey would take them.
I’m so glad I got to experience this read it is a book that holds you captive until the very end!

I cant wait to see what else this author brings. I will be on the lookout for all of Helen Tyree’s future books.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Dreamer’s Vengeance by Helen Tyree is my first read by this author. Her style is vivid scenery, easy to get wrapped up in the characters, and the presentation of the story. With these three things done by Helen Tyree, makes the book that much more enjoyable to read. I would say that this is a YA book, on the other hand I would as an adult read this story. It has a fast pace movement to keep you on your toes. Since it was so easy to follow, I did not realize that I had read the whole book. I love it when you can get that involved with the story to lose all sense of the world around you to the world inside your imagination. The story is about people of Israa having evil humans take hold of their land. There is a prophecy about a Dreamer who will free them from the evil humans. It was a long time since the prophecy has been proclaimed and now there is a plan. Will the Dreamer hold true to the prophecy? Will the prophecy come true? Is there something there that wasn’t there before? All of these questions will be answered and more. I would recommend this story to forget about the world for a while. .
