Adrian and Tara move through time to Paris of 1889. The newlyweds take cheap lodgings in Montmartre, an area known for its artists, absinthe and an avant garde lifestyle.
He's from the past: Adrian's privileged lifestyle crashes into a sobering reality. He's time-jumped into the future with his lovely bride, but his wealth is locked up in a bank account he cannot access. Adrian struggles to overcome his aristocratic airs and survive without his wealth. Pride makes him resist the obvious solution to his woes: accepting help from the woman he loves. As a vigilante in his prior life, will he resurrect his role as Captain Midnight to protect the weak on the back streets of Montmartre?
She's from the future: Tara discovers marriage to a man from the past has its drawbacks. She's awakening to her powers, learning how to use magic to survive among mortals. Adrian refuses to let her provide for him, fueling the fires of discord between them. When the Green Fairy visits Tara's dreams begging for aid, Tara realizes she's been drawn to this time for a purpose, and it isn't to admire art.
Like Babel of old, the newly completed Eiffel Tower inspires a gathering of nations to celebrate human achievement. Beneath the festive atmosphere of the Paris World’s Fair, a cruel darkness lurks. Tara and Adrian will need to set aside their difficulties and blend their strengths to confront an ancient evil seeking to enslave mankind.
