Out of the frying pan, into the fire...
Wren thought things were bad when her boyfriend's father tried to frame her for murder. But that was before a hostile army showed up at the city gates, ready to swallow Maradis whole. And before guild members began disappearing one by one--including the Confectioner's Guild's newest Gifted recruit.
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...
Don't miss this thrilling Book 2 in the Confectioner Chronicles!
Solid continuation of the Confectioners tale
The debut novel in this series focused on the development of the main characters using a murder mystery format. The second novel is structured primarily around political intrigue, and romance takes a stronger role than in the first book. Interestingly, food magic is once again rarely employed even though it would seem to be a handy tool in many situations. This story includes enough twists to remain entertaining and the reader is left hanging at the end, wondering how the story will develop.
The Confectioner’s Coup
This 2nd book in the series broke my heart in so many ways but, still delivered and left me wanting more. Highly enjoyable series!0
