The Last Lumenian


Loved it! 😍

A tale that's immersive, with exceptional world-building and intricately detailed characters.

There are so many YA Fantasy stories out there to choose from, but if you're looking for a read that is immersive, has such exceptional world-building and intricately detailed characters there's a glossary to keep track of everything, then you absolutely must dive into Last Lumenian. 

To say I enjoyed this read would be a sad misrepresentation. The unique, colorful landscape into which the author deftly weaves her tale was exquisitely described. So much so, I felt surrounded by each scene as I read it. Who needs VR! While there were many characters to meet and histories to learn, the flow of the story never felt bogged down. The pacing was precisely what it needed to be in order to draw you in AND keep you turning pages. 

Lilla is a teenager and she's just what she should be: adventurous, rebellious, curious, uncertain. Particularly when abilities she didn't realize she had begin to complicate her life. Magic has no place in her steady role as the ruling King's daughter. She has responsibilities and requirements to fulfill, but those roles lead her into murky waters where she discovers oppression on a galactic scale. 

And, like any great coming of age tale, just when she thinks she's beginning to understand things, along comes a powerful general whose focus on his mission could lead to the destruction of her entire world! Emotions and wills collide. The status quo turns upside down, and whether she's ready or not, Lilla is thrust into a quest that will either devour her entirely or change her absolutely.
