SG Night has been a writer since he was old enough to hold a pen. Hailing from Northern Virginia, he spent his youth in Honors writing programs, garnering a love for science-fiction and fantasy. The countless hours of world-building and scribbling in notebooks began to bear fruit in the summer of 2012; over the course of the following year, he worked tirelessly to craft his debut Epic Fantasy novel. Night completed the manuscript for Attrition: the First Act of Penance shortly before his 18th birthday.
Attrition is the first installment of the Three Acts of Penance, set in the unique world of Talkrilia.
Attrition: The First Act of Penance (Fantasy/YA)
The Demonic Dominion has held the nation of Io captive for more than a century. The Humans are in shackles. The Elves are in exile. And the race of Majiski battle-mages have been all but eradicated by the Demons and their ilk.
Racath Thanjel is among the few remaining Majiski surviving in secret. A strong but opinionated young assassin, he works from the shadows against the Demonic Dominion. But how can he and the others hope to defeat such a terrible adversary? Especially when their patriarch is keeping more secrets than the Demons themselves.
Now, as a tangle of conspiracies, secrets, and ancient prophecies sweeps Racath away, he must choose his destiny: will he become the long-awaited Savior of Io, or allow it to suffocate beneath the Dominion’s iron fist?
It has been 106 years since the Demonic Dominion conquered Io. 106 years since they enslaved Humanity, banished the Elves into the mountains, and systematically exterminated the Majiski battle-mages. For the Genshwin — the underground network of Majiski survivors, a brotherhood of assassins, spies, mercenaries, and thieves — it is an age of fear, secrecy, and clandestine war against Io’s conquerors. But for Jared, a Genshwin of the highest order, there seems to be no end in sight. No hope remaining. No recourse left…but to become one with the Demons.
From the author of Attrition: the First Act of Penance comes the unspoken tale of the assassin who fell from grace, who would betray everything he knew, everyone he loved…and put Racath Thanjel on the path to becoming the Savior of Io.
