  Wolfwalker
        By Tara K. Harper

Engineered by the Ancients, wolves and humans had long been able to read each other's minds. But centuries of decimation from the alien-designed plague had made the wolf-human bond rare.

Dion, a healer, had discovered the telepathic human-lupine bond by accident. Now, the link that she shared with the wolf, Gray Hishn, filled her mind with all the senses of the wolfpack. What Hishn saw, Dion saw also; what Dion felt, Hishn also experienced.

But Dion never guessed how strong that bond with Gray Hishn could be, or what kind of power it could wield until she found herself lost in the wilderness, with angry slavers at her heels and war on the horizon. Suddenly she and her fellow travelers were fighting for their lives in the snowy winter wastes, where the wolves were their only guides, the greatest secret of the Ancients their only salvation...and Dion their only hope to survive.


From Reviewers:
 

"A breathless ride...Rip-snorting, white-river, cliff-climbing suspense
with barely a pause.  A Grand Fantasy!"
             - Anne McCaffrey

"Vivid details of wilderness survival and a strong, resourceful heroine..."
                      - Library Journal

"...sheer crackling energy and electric zest..."
             - Raymonds Reviews

"Delicious!"
            - Locus


Order of the Wolfwalker Books

Wolfwalker is the first book of the Wolfwalker novels.  Shadow Leader is a sequel to Wolfwalker.  Storm Runner, the third Wolfwalker novel, occurs a year after the events in Wolfwalker and Shadow Leader.  Wolf's Bane and Silver Moons, Black Steel are a pair, and occur about 13 years after the events described in Storm Runner.

The latest Wolfwalker novel, Wolf in Night, is the beginning of a new Wolfwalker series about Dion's daughter, Noriana, and her partner wolf, Grey Rishte.  This series begins 37 years after Wolfwalker (or 23 years after Wolf's Bane).

Grayheart is a stand-alone book, which occurs about 20 years after Wolf in Night, or, almost 60 years after Wolfwalker.

Series Titles

I'll confess that I've never liked the way these books were named as serieses.  They were printed with "Tales of the Wolves" on the covers.  To me, Cat Scratch Fever and Cataract are the Cat Tales.  However, because the Wolfwalker novels ended up being called "Tales of the Wolves" on their covers, I have to call the Cat Tales the "CatScratch" series instead.

To me, the wolf novels are "Wolfwalker novels."  I think of the Dion & Aranur stories as the Grey Wolf series, because Dion is often called the Grey Wolf of Ramaj Randonnen.  Her daughter, Noriana, is called Black Wolf, so Nori's stories are the Black Wolf series.  Grayheart, and other individual wolfwalker books I may write in the future, are other Wolfwalker novels.
