Book & Author Details:

Enaya: Solace of Time by Justin C. Trout
Publication date: December 14th 2015
Genres: Adventure, Fantasy, Young Adult

Nile Whitman thought he had withstood the test of Time, but when he discovers an ancient artifact known as Enaya, his life will change forever.
Enaya, a powerful and magical stone, alters time by bringing a futuristic city into Nile’s time period. The leader of this city, Norcross Kenneth, falls in love with Nile’s world and the magic within it, and he will stop at nothing until both their worlds are united. After Nile’s kingdom is destroyed by this new unknown force, he sets out on an adventure to send the future back into their dimension.
It’s not just this new threat that opposes Nile; the Lucian Empire has risen, and the Snake Queen wants Nile all to herself. When Nile forms a resistance with an unlikely band of heroes, he is forced to come to terms with his past and with the decisions that will affect his future.
Nile will have to embrace who he is if he is going to protect the people he loves, and in doing so, he will have to depend on Enaya, the element of time.


Solace of Time grew darker in the mind of the Snake Queen, like a forbidden secret never to be spoken, left unsettled and growing into hate. Thunder roared across the murky sky and the black ocean howled as it crashed onto the pale shore. A haunting chill came from the ocean, sending shrills across Ashera and Nile’s neck as they stood, facing the queen.
Ashera reached for Nile’s hand, as if she were afraid of this bad dream. Her lips trembled as she murmured, “Where are we?”
“Solace of Time.”
Ashera looked around and was frightened by the darkness of it all. Everything seemed so empty and gray. “Everything seems so . . . dead.”
Shebris hissed after Ashera and as she glided, she bumped into a sand mold. She thought it was a sand mold, or perhaps a sand castle from a memory. She glanced down to see Srinath lying on his side, and she stepped away from him to see his cape sprawled out. She had brought him to Solace of Time and she seemed to forget how easy the touch was to bring somebody here.
“I don’t want to be here,” Ashera said.
“It only exists in the mind, Ashera. This is hers,” Nile said.
“Why does she have one?”
“Enaya, element of time, connects you to your past.” Nile looked at Shebris while he continued to talk to Ashera. “Shebris came in contact with Enaya a long time ago.”
Nile turned to face her, but he didn’t see Ashera. Instead, he saw Dywnwen on the balcony. It was one of the last nights in Woodlands, before any of this happened. He was staring at her while Roland was asleep and he was smiling. He remembered what she had said to him.
“You are still my knight in shining armor.”
He replied, “I will always be that knight in shining armor.”
When he blinked, Dywnwen was gone. That was all she was now, a memory, and she was gone like one too. He saw Ashera and felt empowered by her presence. She was so beautiful and her little kisses warmed Nile’s soul. He looked into her beautiful eyes and for an instance, he forgot he was Nile Whitman. Instead, he was a knight.
