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...

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..)

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...

This is one of my all-time favorite novels (as you would be able to tell if you could see how battered it is from being read over and over again!). The relationship between Dion and her wolf pal, Hishn, is just so awe-inspiring that it makes you wish you could telepathically speak to animals!! This book has everything...drama, action, and even some romance (hubba, hubba). And it has wolves!!! I LOVE WOLVES!!! (heck, I went to college to study them!). But even if you don't like wolves as religiously as I do, this is a great novel. I will admit that I didn't enjoy the later novels as much (Grayheart, especially). That's probably because I became so attached to Dion, Hishn, and their friends that nothing else would do!! You can read all the books in the series if you want to, but read this one for sure!!! It's great!

Dion was a healer and a wolfwalker. Being one was special. Being both was rare. She had a bond with the wolf Gray Hishn. She must battle warlags, find her twin brother, outwit angry slavers to save some girls, and try to spread word of the upcoming war. She had written proof of the war. Proof that the slavers wanted back.
Soon she and her fellow travelers find themselves lost in the wilderness and fighting to find a cure to an eight hundred year old plague. Dion must learn "Ovousibas". (How to heal from the inside.) No one had ever survived the attempt. Both wolfwalkers and their wolves always died. But there is no other choice.
***Goes from fighting, to white-river riding, to cliff-climbing, to more! Non-stop movement. Best Sci-Fi I have read in a while.***

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!

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!
