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!

Professional psychic and FBI consultant Abby Cooper has used her inner visions to get her out of many a scrape—and solve many a crime—but she’s about to face a murder scene that will put all her powers to the test. Abby’s husband Dutch has a side business providing security and building panic rooms for wealthy clients. One morning, one of Dutch’s partners, Dave, goes missing on his way to meet a client. Abby’s intuition tells her something terrible has happened to him.

Then two of Dutch’s clients are found brutally murdered...inside their brand new panic room, and most of the evidence points to Dave as the killer.  With the authorities racing to find and arrest him, Abby's got to use all her intuitive prowess to get to Dave first, discover the real killer, and save her husband's business. This is one case where Abby is positive there’s far more to this mystery than meets her inner eye…


In the latest installment of the Abby Cooper series, Abby's handyman and dear friend Dave finds himself in a pickle, we learn his wife's actual name, and the Scooby gangs future all get tossed upside down and turned inside out as they work on the most emotional and intense investigation to date!  Will this be the end of the road for the trio of besties, or will they get their happily ever after?  Lets find out!

The story takes us back to Dutch's side business involving his security company that more recently included Bryce and Dave.  The company provides safe rooms for the rich and filthy rich.  While on the job, Dave goes missing.  When Abby receives a call from his beloved wife, (and no, I'm not spoiling that for you!) that Dave has not returned home all night, Abby gets a bad juju vibes from the ether.  Abby takes immediate action and starts the phone tree to Dutch and the gang.  While investigating his disappearance, Abby and Candace stumble upon a doozy of a story to follow that leads to very bad things.  All the while Dave's "old lady" is hanging on by a thread, terrified that something horrible has happened to him and she will possibly never see him again. 

I found the story began very intriguing, but as time went by, I was very confused as to why in this particular case Abby was unable to get a grip on any info from the ether about Dave.  It was very frustrating at times, however, I later come to the conclusion that the reason may have been because she is so emotionally tied to Dave and therefore that clouded her insight.  With the murder case that tied Dave to the crime, the APD became involved complicating Abby and friends search for their friend.  The story line had a similar ring to an earlier story where Candace was "wanted" for a crime back in Las Vegas, and in turn left me feeling like the series was repeating earlier stories now.  I did enjoy the plot and the possibilities for the gang's future this book opened up, and I hope that this is why Dave had to suffer the similar story line Candace had in an earlier book.  The true depths of Dutch and Abby's love for one another, which were brought forth once again, gave me goose bumps, and also reminded me of why I love this couple so much.  They truly are soul mates in every sense of the word, and it brings me so much joy to see Abby experience true happiness after growing up in a family that was not so loving.

 So in closing for all the Abby Cooper fans out there, I don't think you will be disappointed with Panicked Premonition, but you may feel a sense of dejavue.  I will without a doubt continue to anxiously await the next adventure that Abby and friends will have!
