THE TIME IS NOW.
Raised on a foreign world where telepathic wolves hunt in the mountains and mysterious aliens guard against the encroachment of humanity, Nori has grown up scouting in the wilderness. Like her mother before her, she searches for dangers that could devastate the isolated towns scattered across the countryside.But the wolves have already encountered those forces. Now, disturbed by the sense of death along the broken cliffs of Ariye, they reach out to one who can help them. Unsuspecting, Nori answers the Grey Ones' call-only to find herself mentally bonded to a half-grown, ferocious wolf.Spies and assassins stalk the scouts and wolfwalkers while a deadly threat, once thought to be contained, spreads across the land. Caught between the wolves and the horror of plague, and with hired hunters at her heels, Nori is hounded deep into the wilderness to begin a journey that must end in victory . . . or death.

Excerpt from Wolf in Night by Tara K. Harper
A wolf doesn ' t choose his wolfwalker,
He can ' t help being drawn to your side;
There ' s a tiny place in his brain and yours
Which seeks the other ' s mind.
It ' s a need, a desire, a hunger in both,
An addiction that pulls like a chain,
It resonates between you, like the sun
Blinding and swamping your thoughts,
Like the wind rising and falling, falling,
Like the packsong calling, calling.
It binds you like two halves of a knot
That cannot come undone.
' excerpt from Who Hunts the Wolves
Afternoon, just west of Willow Road . . .
The wolf watched from the shadows with a predatory sense, an animal tang of hunger. Evening was approaching fast, when color would shift into shades of grey and the air would grow cool with danger. The young wolf knew what would come with the darkness. He was a year old, experienced enough that the hunt was no longer fearsome, but still young enough that it was something he eagerly sought. This time, he hunted alone.
