  Shadow Leader
       By Tara K. Harper

             1991, Del Rey/Ballantine; ISBN: 0-345-37163-1
                    Cover art by Edwin Herder

        A National Best-Seller
              -- Also available in German and Dutch


Linked by an unbreakable telepathic bond, Dion and the wolf, Gray Hishn, were an unbeatable team. Together, they could scout a trail better than any single human, and their unique healing talent had saved the lives of their companions during their desperate flight through the frozen mountains to warn their people of impending war.

Now enemy agents scoured the countryside looking for the group that included a young healer and her wolf. And suddenly the very strengths that Dion's friends had come to rely on could mean the downfall of them all...


From Reviewers:
 

"Harper's storytelling strengths are in pacing and scene-setting...
Shadow Leader is both traditional and distinctive in its approach to its material,
and that's rare enough to make it well worth a look."
                        - Amazing Stories Magazine

"The continual plot twists and set-backs give the story a breathless pace."
                   - Science Fiction Reviews


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.
