Where you go in life can depend on who you know. Benjamin Lincoln and his friends went all the way back to 4500 BC and the beginning of history to save his wife. She had been kidnapped by her father, an elder elf who hated the fact that she became human to marry a human, worried to see her age and feared he was going to lose her before her time. He dragged her through a series of time gates to the very beginning of the human record in order to hide her from the ravages of time.
Unfortunately, the price of saving her was watching the one who made the rescue possible – the Kairos, the Watcher over History – jump into the primeval chaos before history began. Now, the Kairos can’t easily whisk them home as planned. They have to get back to the twenty-first century the hard way, time gate by time gate. They must move through history from one lifetime of the Kairos to the next and that is not so easy. For one, the lives of the Kairos tend to be surrounded by trouble and danger. For two, there is nowhere to hide – others have picked up their scent and it seems they are not the only ones using the time gates.
Robert Lockhart, former policeman and current Associate Director of the so-called Men in Black. He is charged with leading this expedition and has no idea how he is going to get everyone home — alive.
Mary Riley who everyone calls Boston, a technological genius, redneck and newcomer to the MIB group. She keeps an eye on Lockhart who has low tolerance for elves, fairies and other spiritual creatures. By contrast, she is in love with all of this stuff, and the adventure, which just means she is a little weird.
Benjamin Lincoln, former C. I. A. and fellow member of the Men in Black, records department. He keeps the database and keeps the record of their journey. He tends to worry and is not the bravest soul, but sometimes that is an asset.
Alexis Lincoln, former elf and also employed by the MIB organization. She retained her magic when she became human and is especially skilled at healing magic, though some of the trauma they face might not be so easily healed.
Roland, Alexis’ younger brother, a full blood elf and gifted hunter who came to keep their father under control and out of his sister’s face. He never spent much time with humans but finds there is something in humanity worth saving and protecting. On the other hand, he knows many of the creatures in the spirit world, including the nasty ones inclined to rise up out of the dark.
Mingus, father of Alexis and Roland, an elder elf who ran the history department in Avalon for over 300 years. He knows the time zones but tends to keep his opinions to himself. And he is not happy to think his children are being ruined by so much human interaction.
Doctor Procter, half-elf, half-human. He is Mingus’ associate in the history department and carries the amulet that leads the way from one time gate to the next.
Lieutenant Katie Harper, a marine whose specialty is ancient and medieval cultures and technologies. She was drafted at the last minute when the Kairos suspected they might not be returned to the future as easily as he brought them into the past. She is torn between her duty to the marines of area 51 and her desire to be part of this larger universe she is discovering.
Captain Decker, navy seal and special operations officer who will do all he can to keep everyone alive, even if it means shooting his way back to the twenty-first century. To be sure, he is a skeptic who sometimes does not believe the half of what they experience. Then again, sometimes he does not know what to believe.
