Kathy Granite is not your ordinary writer. She's a Weaver - a spinner of great tales and has the ability to write or rewrite the history of a world. Only one problem, she doesn't know it. She's spent the last six years telling the stories of people dragged to Earth from a variety of places by her Layren Protector, Ronon Wulfdrak.

Ronon has spent that same time keeping Kathy

Addicted to Margaret Taylor? I totally am.

I am just so happy right now.

Ever finish a book and just go...that is exactly what I needed? (laughs at self, of course you know that feeling). Well this is EXACTLY what I needed. I am in love *.*

Song Choice: "Sideways" by Citizen Cope, "Stay With Me" by Sam Smith

First thoughts: Okay this is my third book by Margaret, and in her first series I read --> To Light The Dragon's Fire (which I am "Patiently"

for the next book) I decided, w

As another of Ms. Taylor’s work, the story was lacking the detail that would completely suck you in. Kathy’s companions were funny and protective, yet very mysterious. The author will throw you a quick bone and then jerk it right back, leaving you wanton for more. I was hoping for more depth with the characters as well as the story line. The story has so much potential, but it jumps from one thing to another, and it sometimes has me saying “What?” and going back to read it again.

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review*

Kathy is a writer, but her stories aren’t all down to her own imagination. Her characters come to her and tell her their stories. She never knows who or what will turn up and how long they will be staying for. But they always leave, except Ronon, the first stranger to end up in Kathy’s world and who has not yet left. Kathy obviously has a gift, one she has never understood and hasn’t questioned often, because who would she ask without s

Kathy is an author but she used to be a secretary for Carrington Broadcasting. She had that job because it left her a lot of time to write. Her first vistor from another world was Ronon. Kathy helped him get used to this world by watching movies. She dreamed of him and thought he wasn't real for a long time but when one of her friends from work came over and saw him she knew that he was real. They moved to a small town in South Dakota. She has three visitors Cale who is a half dragon, Tonthor w ...more

This is a remarkable story with equally remarkable characters. Kathy is a writer who literally, physically co exists with the paranormal character she writing about. They dictate their story to her and it's not unusual to find several at a time since she has several stories going at one time. Once the story is told, that character returns to their own world. She just hasn't been able to get the sexy half wolf to tell his own story so he's been around for years and in fact has become Sheriff. She ...more

I absolutely loved Wolf’s Paradox by Margaret Taylor. I read a lot so having a book surprise me with the writing style and story is quite a treat. Kathy Granite, the snarky, witty, determined lead character talks to me. I mean that literally and figuratively. Margaret Taylor may have written it but, like Kathy, I think she attracts characters from other worlds and writes their stories! Ronan keeps Kathy in the dark about her capabilities, only writing stories

I loved how fresh and original this story was. For the most part, I didn't foresee what would happen next and that kept me riveted enough to keep turning the pages from the very beginning. The more I read, the more I kept asking myself questions about the plot and the characters and couldn't wait to find the answers.

Why not 5 stars? The majority of the book was in first person in Kathy’s perspective and I would have loved to have read more than the couple of scenes from Ronon’s point of view. I

I read this for The Round Table Book Reviews

I loved this.
This is the hilarious story for Kathy Granite, a best selling writer with a difference. She is in fact a “Weaver”, a story teller that can change the history of the worlds she writes about. Unfortunately She doesn’t know it.
She has spent the last 6 years, being “visited” by all manner of different people & creatures from the places she writes about. Always behind her though, is Ronon. A Wolf, who has become, in human form, the local sherif

This book was awesome! I thought it was hysterical and it drew me in right from the very beginning. I've always loved books where the author is causing something or is involved in the story somehow. I think it's so unique a concept and this one was better than any others with this kind of a situation. I loved the characters and I love the transformation Kathy goes through over the course of the story. I read it in almost one sitting because I didn't want to stop. It's a good sign when a book mak ...more

Wolf's Paradox by Margaret Taylor is terrifically written. These characters are telling me their stories directly, no middle man. And what a wonderful story it is. The background is a bit hazy for most of the story, which was frustrating until revealed. Then it became obvious that it was done intentionally to ramp up the climax. Had Kathy been given the knowledge too soon, she may not have been able to move forward. I am excited to read more in this series. ...more
