The Dark Age of Enya

by Nick Alimonos
Release date: 2004
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy

Imagine if the world stopped rotating... if the oceans evaporated into desert, if the moon forever eclipsed the sun. Now imagine that this is ancient history, and monsters once men have come to murder your parents, to make your people extinct, to take back their home, your home. Naked and alone but for a blood-thirsty sword, you wander the world for years. But one day, you hear of a city by the sea, besieged by terrorist sea creatures, and when you arrive you discover her, as unnacustomed to clothing as you, the last of your people, a beautiful woman sentenced to death for heresy.

THE DARK AGE OF ENYA tells the tale of a divided world in an age of warfare and poverty, and of the man whose ancestral lineage has fated him to become the Batal of Legend, he who will unite the warring factions and bring peace and prosperity to Enya under his rule. He is Xandr, born in beautiful and little known Ilmarinen, home to a naturist, peace-loving people. As a young boy he is snatched up by the Goddess Alashiya, who comes in the form of a falcon, just as he is to be slaughtered by the Dark Centaur Nessus, along with the rest of his people. Naked and alone he is left to wander, tormented by his past and rejecting the burden that is his fate, a blood-thirsty and skull faced sword his only companion. But in the city of Hedonia, he meets emerald-eyed Thelana, a warrior thief, and a shamelessly nude Ilmarin like himself. Together they embark upon a journey; along with Grimosse, the stony-toothed golem guardian; and Emma, the raven-haired sorceress; a great journey that will lead them through the Dead Zones to the snowy peaks of Hollow Mountain and the Kingdom of Mythradanaiil, the last bastion of hope against the encroaching armies of the Dark Queen Hatshepsut and Moontalon, the ancient black dragon.
