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?

About S G Night

S.G. Night has had stories growing in his head since birth. He began the final version of "Attrition" at the age of 14, and finished shortly before turning 18. He's a storyteller, a cynic, and a libertarian-a sucker for puppies and English musicals about French people. He enjoys the winter, writing before the break of day, and the company of fire.
