Start with Storm of Visions. As a young man, Aleksandr Wilder abandoned his duty — and for that lapse, he was tortured, tormented and transformed. Now he prowls the tunnels beneath the city, fighting against the forces of hell, never daring to dream he can live as a man again. After seven years fighting the world's ultimate evil, Chosen One Charisma Fangorn has become a tough, strong warrior without illusions or joy, even her gift of hearing the earthsong has faded. Deaf to her own instincts, she never suspects that a monster lurks in the dark beneath the streets. When Aleksandr finds Charisma under attack, he rescues and cares for her, and hope stirs once more in his heart ... and in the world. But in the secret recesses of his soul, he knows the truth. A woman so exceptional could never love a beast could she?
