  Storm Runner
          By Tara K. Harper

             1993, Del Rey/Ballantine, ISBN: 0-345-37162-3
                    Cover art by Edwin Herder

                     --Also available in German


As a wolfwalker, Dion made an ideal border scout. She could experience the woods and mountains through the senses of her companion, the wolf Gray Hishn--even the wild wolves fed her their impressions. And that was how she knew that in the beleaguered lands across the border, something unspeakable was happening. Not just people, but the wolves were fleeing in droves. And the lupine packsong, which echoed through the Ancient's mountains, haunted Dion's mind with grief

But the wolves who remained behind, across the wide, rushing river, had cut Dion off from their minds. She could not hear their voices. Nothing but their despair leaked through. Dion knew that time was running out for the people on the other side of the border--and for wolves everywhere. Her only hope lay with an ancient rite that had remained untested for generations...the Calling of the Wolves!

Author's note, symbolism, etc.


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.
