For Lua itself, the language's main developer maintains a VERY good book: Programming in Lua

 

Down at the bottom of that page there's a link to the first edition online, for free. While slightly out of date (Corona currently uses 5.1), the differences are pretty minor and you'll be fine reading it.

 

Once you're comfortable with that the 5.1 language ref is also on hand. (The change list from 5.0 is at the bottom, incidentally.) This isn't written specifically for beginners, though, so start with the other recommendations first. Some more intermediate-to-advanced material is also available on the Wiki.

I created a tutorial series on Youtube a couple of years ago that covers the basics of Lua: https://youtu.be/-iU1pCgmjx4

 

Hope you find it useful!
