Publisher's Summary

Twelve men went missing....

Six months later, they awake from drug-induced stupors to find themselves locked in a lab. On the night of a new moon, 11 of those men - possessing new gifts of speed, strength, and inhuman powers - break out of their prison and race through the streets of Los Angeles. They disappear one by one into the night. 

Mika Lenna - a powerful dream traveler and head of Olento Research - wants to control the world. To do that, he must create an army of assassins. Capturing the 12 men was easy, as was experimenting on them while keeping them in drug-induced stupors. But now, all hell has broken loose - wolf-like men have been spotted across the nation, leaving fatal attacks in their midst. Mike must tear every city apart until his invaluable werewolves are back under his control.  

The Lucidite Institute's main mission is to save the world from injustices. Their best agent, Adelaide Lewis, needs to find these mutated men and protect them and society, and fast. Adelaide realizes that she has to find the alpha wolf. Only once she's located him can she stop whoever is behind this experiment to create wild beasts out of human beings.

Thrilling, unique story

This is a great start to the Genetically Altered series. The introduction of engineered werewolves adds a interesting and different spin to Noffke's amazing Dream Traveler world. These wolves are not like any other were's you have read about, they are the first of their kind and are on the run from their creators. The Lucidites need to get to them first and figure out who created them and why. Noffke's excellent descriptive writing and Kemp’s great narration lets you feel their struggles, fears, aggression and yearnings, and the exciting plot keeps you totally enthralled. The story and its characters easily captures your imagination; from Mika's ruthlessness, to Rox's sass, Conner's self-deprecation and Adelaide's sarcastic repartee. The narrator does a good job of the different accents in the story; she even managed to throw in a few glottal stops into Adelaide’s cockney accent and captured her snarky attitude well. This is a thrilling tale full of intrigue, humour, loss and strife. Rox is an interesting character and you have to wonder what her sassy, sexy bravado is really hiding. Adelaide's sarcasm and abrasive nature highlights her relation to Ren, and your heart goes out to her as she walks in his shadow. Conner is my favourite "wolf" so far, he is damaged, torn, but has an intelligence and empathy that draws you to him. In Noffke's usual fashion, she has created a storyline and characters that pull at your imagination as well as your heart. It's a compelling tale, with links that tie into her other books, once again weaving more depth into an already great world and yet can still be read as a stand alone series. I loved this story and look forward to listening to the next audiobook.

Origin Story!!

Here we go again! Sarah Noffke has pulled me into yet another one of her series with a vengeance! We re-enter the Dream Traveler world on the tail end of Ren's last adventure. (cries sadly must read Ren series if you have not!) I am not sure how Sarah knew I loved origin stories and werewolves on top but I was like a kid in the candy store. The plotline hooked me all the way to the last page. As always, the character development is the real story here. The plot wound and twisted and I saw names from other Dream Traveler series (Eeek!!). I still want a timeline (need a timeline!) but the story was gripping and fast-paced. I love how the story unfolds and the characters build up to a crescendo. Zephyr is a strong leader but I do think that Connor may be my favorite in this novel! As the daughter/granddaughter of military men and an Army grunt myself, I appreciate how the military was not shown as 'only' hooah and how they were shown as genuine humans. As with all professions, not everyone is the same in the military. Love how the author took this and made it her own! Read this book if you love action, werewolves, and Dream Travelers!

Great start

Great start to a spin off of Noffke’s Lucidites series. I love how the Dream Traveler world is spreading out through all these different books. There are several spin offs and all are linked in some way which makes them feel familiar right from the start. Several characters reoccur and new ones are always being introduced. Also, many of the spin off series can be read without reading the other books. Though personally I like going down the traditional timeline.
This book centers around Adelaide and her first major case for the Lucidites. She is determined to prove herself. Adelaide is a great character. Like her father Ren she is prickly and has no time for niceties. For this mission it’s her job to chase down a bunch of men who have been genetically altered and are now werewolves. She has been paired with a smiley feminine FBI agent, Rox, and is not happy about it. I liked the origin story of the werewolves and the nature of the changes that takes place within them. There was a swift pace to the story and a good amount of action. I’m curious to see what will happen with these newly created wolfmen and what developments will arise in the next book in the series.

This was my first audiobook by Sarah Noffke and the storyline itself wasn’t bad. However, even though it’s a PNR there should be more plausible character development. There seemed to be a lot of name calling, grumpiness, superiority complexes and implausible scenarios. Paranormal characters are usually stronger and quicker with movement and mentality! Therefore it wasn’t very feasible of the actions of the characters. The narrator’s voice was too young and therefore didn’t give the story the depth it needed.

Genetically Altered

Another great book by the amazing Sarah Noffke! I love her writing style, her world-building & the way that she is able to link such different stories together by using her characters & her worlds!

When I first heard that Ms. Noffke was writing a werewolf series, I was a little taken aback. After all, I wanted more Dream Travel & the Luccidites. But, I also love shifter stories. I was pleasantly surprised when these particular wolves were also Dream Travelers! And, the addition of some of my favorite characters from other series just made this one even better! As usual, Ms. Noffke has included her trademark snarky Brit (for those of us who love them) & some really evil villains, as well as some likeable but flawed protagonists.

I first read this book when the title was "Alpha Wolf" and dearly loved it. Now, after listening to the amazing Audiobook, I love it even more! Ms. Klett does a wonderful job with her performance and it truly added a whole other dimension to the book. The dialogue between Adelaide and Rox was great when reading it and even better when listening to it. This is a wildly entertaining and intriguing series and I recommend it to anybody looking for something to read that is fun as well as thought provoking.

Great start to this series!

A unique story with werewolves unlike any I’ve come across. Loved the blend of sci-fi and paranormal. Great characters and an engaging story with plenty of action and a good dose of humor. Fantastic narrator, she has unique voices and accents for each character and really captured their personalities. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.
