Proud Pada is the third book of The Last Lumenian series by S.G. Blaise. After invoking the Bride's Choice on Callum, Sybil Lilla's perfect wedding day turns upside down when Callum's older brother Sachary is found murdered. Callum's father, Caderyn, ruler of the Teryn Praelium, reluctantly takes Lilla, Callum, and their friends to the monastic Pada world in search of the killer, following the traces of Acerbus-infused technology. However, upon their arrival, they soon discover a brewing animosity between the Tier One factions that could spell danger. When Caderyn goes missing, Lilla is left with no choice but to take it upon herself to identify the culprits and bring them to justice before the entire Praelium descends into civil war. But with multiple factions as suspects, will Lilla be able to stop the one pulling the strings?
Proud Pada is a seamless blend of high fantasy, sci-fi, and mystery. Author S.G. Blaise takes little time in getting things moving and puts the reader into the midst of the action from the get-go. There are several surprising turns of events in the plot to immerse readers in the pages, and you will find yourself hard-pressed to put the book down before finishing it. Lilla has a diverse circle of friends, and their banter and quick back-and-forth add a sprinkling of humor to the narrative. Lilla is immensely likable as the main protagonist, which makes her relatable to readers. All in all, a stellar entry into an epic fantasy saga that I will recommend to all fantasy lovers.
