Book Description

January 2001
Dion was a healer and a wolfwalker, and the unique telepathic bond that she shared with the wolf Gray Hishn sometimes seems to amplify her sensitivity to her patients. But she never guessed how strong that bond 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 ancient their only salvation...and Dion their only hope to survive.

Product Details

Product Description

From Library Journal

Pursued by slavers bent on revenge, a young woman and her telepathically linked wolf join a small group of desperate travelers who are inexorably drawn to an ancient mountain sanctuary that contains the key to a lost--and forbidden--art of healing. Vivid details of wilderness survival and a strong, resourceful heroine highlight this otherwise predictable quest fantasy. For large fantasy collections.

From the Publisher

I'm a sucker for wolves. I'm also a sucker for stories about humans who have telepathic relationships with animals (I especially like wolves--did I mention that?). I'd like to do things like climb sheer cliffs and shoot whitewater rapids, but I'm too scared of them. Tara Harper's Tales of the Wolves allows me to experience all of that vicariously. Too bad the wolf part isn't real--I don't think I'd be scared of that. Then again, Tara tells me wolves can be pretty nasty. And they are wild animals, after all. I guess I'll just stick to reading...

5.0 out of 5 stars A hard, grippping novel! Dec 2 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is by far the best Sci-fi books out there! Well, if you like wolves and the fast paced action!
This book actually grips you and won't let go. I read plenty of Sci-fi books that are just so boring that what was the point in finishing it, but not this one. The book will make you re-read,e ven if you don't like the idea of female Wolfwalkers ruling the series. I honestly wish for A Male Wolfwalker to star the show.
But that isn't what makes this book the best! The action is so descripive, it makes you feel that you are a wolfwalker yourself and that you can actually feel the environment with the character.
I recomend this book if your reading this review right now. Its too damn good to say more in words!

4.0 out of 5 stars This book will leave you breathless! April 4 2002
By orbops
Format:Mass Market Paperback
My wife recommended that I pick up the Wolfwalker series after I had finished reading the Wheel of Time series - and maybe that was why I gave this novel 4 stars instead of 5. Tara Harper has created a vibrant character in Dion and the beginnings of a wonderful story line that plays out over the next 5 books in the series. I found that as the series progresses, I became more and more engrossed in the story.
My only minor gripe is that in this novel more than any other of the Wolfwalker series, her pacing of the action is relentless. The world that Tara Harper has created is such a harsh and violent environment that both Dion and the reader never are given the chance to take 'a breather' and unwind. In many fantasy stories, I feel drawn to the world itself - yet on the Wolfwalker world, I think its the last past I'd ever want to live!
Overall, add this to your list of must read fantasy series...

5.0 out of 5 stars Begining the adventure Oct. 27 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book in Harper's first series. I read this book after 'Cat Scratch Fever' and 'Cataract' were finished. I was hungry for more writing by the artist, and so I searched high and low to find all three books in the series.
In this first book, we are introduced to Dion, a very unusual woman. One day I hope the author writes a prequel, that details some of what the girl's growing up years must have been like. Suffice it to say, she is warrior trained, a healer by choice dedicated to saving lives, and a wolfwalker. Wolfwalkers are introduced to the reader in this series. They are humans who are drawn to wolves, and capable of working/communicating the wolves.
In this story, Dion begins a tale that will last 5 books and three generations of children. Dion begins the road to becoming a legend. It's interesting how a few twists in circumstances can completely change the road you walk. She faces a few very important decisions: the large sense of responsibility she has for those around her, because she has knowledge and skill that others don't have, and how far that responsibility should extend; the decision to save lives, following her healer-rank oaths; the responsibility to take lives while protecting herself, her loved ones, and those that are defenceless. It is the conflict between these three that sucks in the reader and refuses to let go.
I highly suggest this book to anyone who likes action, adventure, tough decisions, great fighting scenes, and personal relationships. This book was quite an eye opener, and a great introduction to the amazing worlds out there waiting for us to visit. (Or maybe not waiting.. maybe dreading..)

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Adventure! May 22 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
With "Wolfwalker", Tara Harper has succeeded in creating a rich and detailed environment filled with interesting characters and an exciting story. Dion, the main character, is delightful as a woman who is strong and compelling while not defying credibility. (Based on her biography at the back of the book, one gets the impression that Dion is very much like Ms. Harper herself.) She's a terrific female lead, one of the best I've seen in Sci-Fi and Fantasy stories.
I recommend this story to anyone who loves fantasy, science fiction, wolves, or all of the above -- and while you're at it, pick up the other books in the series, too! You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOCAL AUTHOR WHO IS GREAT! Feb. 28 2000
By Malia
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Tara Harper and her Wolfwalker series is one of the best. I loved everything about the books and I suggest reading them all. Harper has a way to bring the reader into the book and you begin to live it. I love wolves and this book allowed me to become a wolfwalker (at least in my imagination) and live the carefree life, helping others who needed it. Another important thing is that Harper teaches her readers that wolf-dog mixes are dangerous...and like full blooded wolves...are not meant to be kept as pets. Read all of her books not just the wolfwalker series...they are all good. GO OREGON!

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging Feb. 16 2000
By Kris
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is a wonderful fantasy about a women who has a physic connection to a wolf. She goes on a heroic and sad adventure that is fun to read. Though Tara K Harper is not the best writer with her descriptions though her ideas are fantastic and intriguing. I am waiting breathlessly for the next book to come in the series of this Sci/Fi adventure. If you have ever read any Anne McAffrey I recommend this for you.

This book has everything you could ever want in one of its kind. It has swords, fighting, slavery, romance, very cool characters, an awesome plot, superb battle scenes, and most of all wolves...that's the greatest part about it, which sets it apart from so many other books. By far the best part in the book is the bond between Dion and Grey Hishn, that alone made it a great book, but since it was a wolf that she was bonded to it sent it off the charts. Go out right now and buy this book and the others that are in the series with it! After you're through reading it, you'll want to fight with Dion and Hishn, run through the woods with them, and Howl at the moon with them!
