    I was spellbound from the first page absolutely spellbound with the depth of each sentence and the creative genius that brought to life an entire world, from its magic to its demons to the humans caught in the middle of the war between good and evil Attrition the First Act of Penance by S G Night is probably one of the most fascinating dark fantasies I have ever read The Demonic Dominion has taken over the world Under their harsh rule, most humans have become meek slaves to evil, barely existing [...]

    I have to admit, I was a little intimidated beginning this book It s written by an 18 year old, which makes you wonder about how well it will be written It s a thick book with small type No one is reading this in one sitting, unless you don t sleep Whenever you pick up a new author, there s always the chance that it ll be terrible and you ll have to force yourself through to the end In this case, 582 pages To recap, I was nervous This book is large and written by a kid I m an idiot From the firs [...]

    Hearn the Watcher Fitz Chivalry Kylar Stern Caim the Shadows Son Fox Crow Vlad Taltos And now Racath Thanjel.I love books with assassins and the fight scenes in this book were really well written Looking forward to book 2Only gripe I had with this book was with the way some of the characters acted at some partsI mean Racath is one of the top assassins yet at times he just seems so naive view spoiler When he s training with Oron and Nelle and trying to figure out what his main talent iswe know it [...]

    This was horrible.Its impressive that an 18 year old wrote it, but he should have gotten his high school english teacher to teach him how to revise a paper This is riddled with errors which takes away from the story.The story is simple without any depth Couldnt attach myself to any character.Maybe next time

    Attrition is a multi layered colorfully striking kick a tale featuring supernatural characters with a tale for the ages Its not a story for the weak hearted Its layers and characters grab you and keep you from page one I found myself immersed in a story my mind was unprepared for When I pick up books like these I m often apprehensive because I always think I won t like them because I m typically impartial to the genre but this book is so bad a Its detailed in a way that can only be obtained by t [...]

    G.S Night, Wow Such a young writer to achieve and express so much in his first published book At times reading this work I was blown away at some of the depth, experience, and the wisdom the author possessed There is so much that appealed to me, assassins, magic, teamwork, strategy, relationships, development, valor, retribution, mammoth tasks, etc The author created an incredible word where his story takes place G.S Night has a wonderful flair with words that became quite obvious as I started t [...]

    This book, one of three in the series, is THE best book I ve ever read and I cannot wait for the other two Night s style allows the reader to see, through Sacarri s eyes, Racath s journey to become the Savior Io needs Attrition is separated into three parts within the novel The placing of these and the chapter breaks flow so perfectly, I d hardly noticed another chapter had started Every single character is so real, you can literally feel their laughter and warmth through the cold, Ioan rain Eve [...]

    I d been looking forward to reading this for sometime In fact, ever since I came into contact with S.G back in June To say it was worth the wait is a huge understatement.I recommended this book to a friend and told them it was the best book I d read in the past 5 years At that point I d actually only read the first 10% But already I knew Now upon finishing the epic fantasy novel, I m racking my brains to think of a better book I ve readever The world building is so effortless, the characters so [...]

    Attrition The First Act of Penance is a heart stopping, gut wrenching story that will leave you on the edge of your seat after every chapter The story line is beautifully crafted with impeccable characterization and refreshing style Night has a remarkable talent far beyond his years You don t want to miss out on this amazing book

    Fans of Brent Weeks and assassins in general could do a lot worse than to pick this work up I highlight Weeks in particular because he was also very young when he wrote his first book We ll get to that later though.Attrition is a recollection of a scholar chronicler about the legendary Racath Thanjel and begins in vaguely Name of the Wind fashion A biography of his fame as narrated by another.Majiski are a near extinct race, and Majiski assassins are a most dangerous kind of breed They hide in t [...]

    This book gave me chills It all felt so real On my long metro commutes into work, tired as I was from getting up early, I would still be happy to be awake because I had this book with me Sometimes I wanted to miss my stop just so I could keep reading On other days I would walk down the street towards the office still reading, or keep reading it in the elevator up to my floor, or while my computer booted up at my desk I walked into things than once because I simply couldn t put it down.I am an a [...]

    This has become one of my all time favorite books SG Night does an excellent job of relating Racath Thanjel s epic tale the plot is riveting, and there is a perfect blend of action, background, and plot development Each scene flows perfectly to the next, and the end of each chapter leaves you excited to turn the page The characters are fabulously developed, and I found myself very attached to all of them by the book s end I love you Notak This novel definitely paves the way for an excellent care [...]

    This is probably of my favorite books of all time The detail of the book is so deep, and the imagery created by SG Night makes you feel like you re in Talkrilia In every single chapter, there is something incredible to look forward to, whether it be a fight or mind blowing information about the plot The chemistry of the characters in the book is something else in itself The way that SG Night makes you connect to his characters just adds so much to the book You can really sympathize with them an [...]

    This book was SO SUPER AWESOME I fell in love with the writing it was perfect and the characters The plot was typical but interesting It was long, but it held my attention and was easy to get engrossed in The descriptions and settings were wonderfully done It was a bit lacking in romance, but that could change with the rest of the series Would I read by this author Definitely I will indeed Would I recommend this book to others I have already done so, and will continue to recommend it to anyone [...]

    Great story A war between good and evil played out in a dark fantasy universe with great depth and history With main characters that you can t help but root for Couple of slight niggles for me I thought the last fight sequence was a bit too predictable and there was the use of too many unconventional words The latter wasn t always required and got me checking my dictionary a bit then I wanted to grateful to my kindle s built in dictionary That being said, these are minor points as it s generall [...]

    An incredibly well written story that sucks you in quickly Night s detailed descriptions make you feel as if you are a part of the story The world he has created is masterfully formed Each character is so well formed, I grew attached to them very early on I am hanging on the edge waiting for the next book to come out.

    Lee Long
    An excellent story.The characters were believable.I look forward to the other two acts of penance.The editors need to work better finding and fixing grammatical and spelling errors, nitpicking, I know.

    Starting out this book, I m not gonna lie, was a bit difficult The wording was very flowery I don t mind flowery writing, but it was the fact that the author wrote as if I already knew what was going on But it only took me the first few chapters to get a grip on the story and Racath s character, which is absolutely fantastic by the way I loved the progression of the story, and the way you incorporated the narrator of the story VERY clever on your part Night The chemistry between your characters [...]

    Attrition by S.G Night was a meaty epic read so I will break my review up into several sections I don t normally do this because most books can be reviewed easily in one or two short paragraphs Attrition can t First of all, my rating is a solid five stars Second, I m replacing my old, tattered copy of Lord of The Rings with this book Sacrilege, I know, but once you read this book, you will probably agree with me.S.G Night finished his draft of Attrition when he was 17 years young No big deal unl [...]

    WHAT DO I THINK ABOUT THIS BOOK I think it s one of the best books I ve read in my entire life To think it was written by an 18 year old boy Puts me to shame It s hard to believe this book was written by a teenager I wouldn t believe if I hadn t known otherwise I d rate this book higher than 5 stars if it was possible It s THAT good The book proves it s very possible to write Grimdark fantasy without anti heroes take that Mark Lawrence and Joe Abercrombie fans It s a blend of heroic fantasy and [...]

    I don t know where to start with this book, written at such a young age i didn t exactly know what i would be getting myself into.I ll start with the characters, while their personality and characteristics weren t as deep as any other book you would read, i felt that this was almost appropriate the book being a diary or story if you will We did not need to understand the characters past to understand why the character did and felt the way they did This in my opinion is exceptional, the fact howe [...]

    I really wanted to love this book I really did It had everything that I look for in my fantasy Strong protagonist Interesting minor characters Magic Action Melee combat I m not a man of many wants It did however have one thing that really stopped me from enjoying it I could not get past the modern lingo used Very big pet peeve of mine A lot of authors today use dialogue fit for an urban fantasy novel It s also a big reason why I could not get into The Lightbringer series, to name an example Just [...]

    I barely got through a forth of the book Now I think this book deserves one star But the writer has potential, therefore one star The thing is, the writer is immature It s like he s trying to prove something Especially the metaphors Yes, the metaphors he uses are inventive, original, good But it s like this Honey is good but if you eat too much you will get sick That is a fact In this book, there are always metaphors, a lot of them He uses them everywhere Okay mate, got it, you can use the lang [...]

    It was with low expectations that I started reading Attrition, not because of the authors age or that this where his debut, but because so many reason books in the fantasy genre have use the genre as a setting for telling ordinary contemporary stories and completely missing the opportunity to truly build a world that the reader can immerse themselves in and I couldn t be wrong It is clear from page one that the author is truly in love with the world he is creating and of course the characters t [...]

    There s no doubt this young man has a gift in story telling I m not an avid Fantasy reader, but this book drew me in It does need a good Editor however There are way too many adverbs throughout this book, ad nauseam, causing the dialog to be disjointed If this were corrected, this would be a 4 to 5 star rating, hands down I believe this author has the potential to be a renowned author one day.
