Review of The Last Lumenian
Updated: Feb 4
An excellent science fantasy book that takes you through space and quarrels with the gods.
The Last Lumenian by S.G. Blaise
MOST PRINCESSES NEED SAVING. THIS ONE WILL SAVE YOU.
She is a rebel. Lilla is fighting for the refugees's freedom from oppression. The king, her father, lost touch with reality ever since Lilla's mother died. Now everyone else is paying the price.
The arrival of Callum, a powerful Teryn general, complicates Lilla's life. His presence leads to conflicted feelings and friction with Arrov, a handsome pilot and fellow rebel.
Her life is not what she imagined it to be. Not by far. Meddling gods, love interests and sudden magical abilities have no room in Lilla's world, but that has become her new reality. No matter how hard she pushes them away, it's too late. They all seek to control her anyway.
Now the Era War between two ruling archgods forces Lilla to act: accept who she really is magic and all; find true love; fulfill her destiny by defeating the Archgod of Chaos and Destruction before He finds her. The Last Lumenian.
I found this book while searching for books similar to my own on Amazon. I have to admit there aren't many books that combine space travel, magical realism, aliens, and romance. But this book does it all. And because it combines some of my favorite genres with a perfectly imperfect princess who is a rebel, it's made it's way into my favorite books.
The Last Lumenian is the first book in the series and introduces the reader into a world of space travel that's rich in culture. Lilla is an excellent main character that takes you through the social complexities and issues afflicting the Seven Galaxies. I loved her fisty side but I loved her soft side too. As the story progresses you soon see the ever strong Lillia is not as strong as she seems. Because of a trauma from her past, she must over come debilitating anxiety. I
There are a full cast of characters you're introduced to in this series, so keep your hats on in the beginning. Thankfully Blaise included a index to help readers along.
I would recommend this book to both fantasy and sci-fi readers that love clean reads.

The Progenitor Chronicles
Time Crystals are forbidden for a reason, but King Oren must use one to save a civilization.
King Oren’s only goal was to be a peaceful caretaker of the galaxy. But when a girl falls through a portal into his courtyard clutching a forbidden Time Crystal, his life changes.
With a cataclysmic event imminent, he must lead a group from his home system to the opposite side of the galaxy. Everyone looks to their seemingly immortal race for aid, but even with their elemental powers, they are far from perfect.
Armed with the Time Crystal, they seek to stop an exploding star from decimating an entire population. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to use the crystal. Even worse, he might die trying.
Will King Oren stop the star from exploding? Or will time unravel?
