Rezsia was a city girl, unequipped to face the dangers of the wilderness. Although she was a wolfwalker, her telepathic link with the wolves was too new to give her the strength and experience she needed to survive in the forest. Then the elders asked her to investigate a series of strange deaths, and what started out as a straightforward task became a desperate struggle between a hidden evil and the fledgling bond between one wolf cub and a woman.

The odd, older wolfwalker, Coale, could teach Rezsia to join in the packsong and run with the wolves. The scouts assigned to escort her could instruct her in forest survival skills. But when even the packsong held secrets, there was no one she dared trust fully. If she hoped to survive, she would ultimately have to search her soul, sift through the memories of the wolves, and bet her life on an inner strength she had never tested...


From Reviewers

"Tara K. Harper is one of the most ingenious `animal-writes' I've read!  Her Wolfwalker novels are particular favorites of mine."
               - Anne McCaffrey

"Harper's writing skill would make even a banal story worth reading."
                    - American Reporter

"Filled with suspense, adventure, and more than one shocking twist, Grayheart... is abound with both the deep characterizations and vivid attention to detail that surround the success of Harper's first works... Grayheart... is a page-turner from beginning to end."
               - Quasar Reviews

on the edge of your seat in anticipation."

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.
