Rated it

Olento Research wants to control the world. The Lucidite Institute wants to save it.

Twelve men went missing.

Six months later they awake from drug-induced stupors to find themselves locked in a lab.

And on the night of a new moon, eleven of those men, possessed by new--and inhuman--powers, break out of their prison and race through the streets of Los Angeles until they disappear one by one into the night.

Now, it's Adelaide's job to find these mutated men and protect them and society, and fast. Already around the nation, wolf-like men are being spotted. Attacks on innocent women are happening. And then, Adelaide realizes what her next step must be: She has to find the alpha wolf first. Only once she's located him can she stop whoever is behind this experiment to create wild beasts out of human beings.

The Lucidites are large and in charge once more attempting a new feat to save the world!  The new threat now is a team of researchers that have created werewolves, and not the sexy shifter kind ;)  The person in charge of this level 5 investigation is none other than our beloved Adelaide, the infamous Ren Lewis's daughter.  With still trying to get a grip on her father's recent passing, Adelaide is forced to dig deep and swallow her grief in order to find the loose cannons that are ripping the citizens to shreds.  With help from an FBI agent, can Adelaide and the Lucidites stop the beasts before it's too late?  And further more, who the fuck created these fuckers, (as Adelaide would so eloquently put it, lol).

Alpha Wolf is the start of a new series, but with familiar characters from the authors previous works.  Incorporating Adelaide (from the Ren series) was bloody brilliant!  She is most definitely a character I love to love for her straight forward, no nonsense talk.  She is a tough cookie having inherited her fathers super duper powers and giving no shits what anyone thinks.  The Lucidites are back in action with this new series as well, guiding Adelaide every step of the way while she is chained with a partner not of her choosing.  Roxy, a dream traveler as well and FBI to boot, joins the team with a few tricks up her sleeve as well.  Together, the banter between the two ladies is comical to say the least.  My heart breaks for the emotional struggle Adelaide is going through right now with her father and now her own son frightened of her.  I couldn't help but wonder if she doesn't come to terms with recent events, what will become of her son!

The werewolves were a nasty twist to the story, and brings Adelaide up short because her Jedi mind tricks don't work on them and until she unlocks her other super powers she is just as helpless as the humans they prey on.  However, bringing Roxy into the picture balances that out, and creates a friend/enemy for Adelaide, and also some entertaining moments for us the readers/listeners.  I was glued from beginning to end, and I can't wait to get started on the next book, Lone Wolf.

Narrator Review

Elizabeth Klett entertains us with this new and exciting adventure!  I have had previous experience with this narrator from the Lucidites Series, and I absolutely enjoy the shit out of her!  Her tone, her timing and her accents bring life to an already riveting story.  The only thing I have left to say is please don't ever leave us Elizabeth, I would just die without you!  You scored a 5 Fang Rating from this listener!
