Publisher's Summary

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, 11 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.

Olento Research wants its experiments back. Its CEO, Mika Lenna, will tear every city apart until he has his werewolves imprisoned once again. He didn't undertake a huge risk just to lose his would-be assassins.

However, the Lucidite Institute's main mission is to save the world from injustices. 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.

    "Good book but checkout the Lucidite series 1st..."

    I think I should start by clarifying, this is a great story on its own, a promising start to a new series. However, it is linked to the Lucidite series and a big part of the storyline about dream traveling is explained in the Lucidite books. As a fan of Sarah Nofke and Elizabeth Klett, I had already started the Lucidite series prior to listening to this book, but I've not completed the series. If I hadnt already listened to the first Lucidite book, I don't think I would've been able to understand the dream travel concept as well. Also, since I haven't finished the Lucidite series, there were several spoilers in this book as it refers to some of the Lucidite characters and their completed storyline. Thus, reading the Lucidite series is not a prerequisite, but IMO, this story is a lot more enjoyable if you have Lucidite knowledge. :)

    As always, Elizabeth Klett's narration is excellent!

    I received a free review audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    "Great start to another series!"

    Olento Research has been experimenting on humans and their latest endeavor is turning a particular set of men into a group of werewolves. After the wolves somehow escape and news of terrible attacks get out, the Lucidites step in to protect the midlings and round up the wolves. But who did this, and why? The Lucidites are on the case! I didn't really care for the narrator but enjoyed the story.

    "Great start to a series"
    Any additional comments?

    I was really looking forward to this book and was not disappointed at all. I was hooked from start to finish. It's a well written, creative, entertaining, engaging and very enjoyable story with a great cast of characters. It's a fast paced story that keeps your full attention. Bottom line it's just a darn good story. I was irritated anytime I had to pause the story and couldn't wait to get back to it. As soon as I was done I was ready for the next book. My only complaint would be is that I wish it was longer. It's definitley worth your time and credit.

    This is the first book by Sarah Noffke that I have read and evidently I've been missing out. Along with continuing with this series she has several series available that look really interesting as well. Two of them seem to be connected/ are prequels to this series. I will be reading those asap.

    Elizabeth Klett did a really good job with the narration. Pleasant voice that is easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Good character voices and accents. All of them. With just a slight change in tone her male character voices are good. I'm glad she didn't try to do an overly deep male voice. She was able to bring the characters, their emotions and the story to life though her narration. Very enjoyable. Although dual narration would have been great in this story.

    "I was not able to connect to the characters"

    Twelve men were kidnapped by the Olento Research to experiment with them. They were transformed in werewolves and given powers only possessed by the Lucidites. These men get to escape, and the Lucidite Institute will try to find a cure for them and try to catch the men behind Olento Research.

    First of all, let me clarify that having read ‘The Lucidites’ is a prerequisite for reading this book. Maybe also the ‘Ren’ series, but this is optional. The reader needs to have a previous knowledge about the Lucidites to fully understand and enjoy this book.

    I am a total fan of Sarah Noffke. I have listened to ‘The Reverians’, ‘The Lucidites’, and the ‘Vagabond Circus’ series, and also the first book in the ‘Ren’ series. Sarah is able to give soul to a book and its characters, and I think this is why her books are so loved by many.

    So I was looking forward to this new series, ready to have my breath taken away again. But hard as I tried, this book did not click with me. It is not a bad book, it is in fact quite good, and it has great characters and lots of action; but somehow there was something missing. I am not usually a fan of werewolves stories, but I am also not a circus fan, and I loved the ‘Vagabond Circus’ series. I think that, despite how well the characters were built, I missed a central character to whom I could connect. It seemed Adelaide was this character, but there were not enough insights that got me attached to this character. It is true that most of Sarah’s books are written in first person from and the point of view of the main character. I think the same could be achieved writing in third person, but somehow it did not work here. It is true that Adelaide was an important character but after a while it did not feel like the main one, and in some of the scenes she was not even present, so the writing in third person made perfect sense. I wish I would have cared for the characters more than I did.

    For the rest it was a very enjoyable book with very vivid characters. It is clear that it is just the beginning of a series and a mere introduction to the real thing. I believe the next books will fill the void this one left me.

    I was really happy to listen to another book narrated by Elizabeth Klett. One of my first audiobooks was ‘Defects’, from ‘The Reverians’, and I completely fell in love with Elizabeth’s soothing style back then. She is really good with voices and especially accents, making it seem effortless.

    I received a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.

    "Excellent start to series"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, lots of action sequences and the characters are learning their abilities and new world view as they go.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Adelaide and Rox meet.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was laughing a lot, I love Adelaide's sense of humor.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this one! Continues in the world of the Lucidites and brings back some of the characters from the previous series. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

    "A decent book with an interesting premise"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This was my first introduction to Sara Noffke and her Dream Traveler series. I found the premise of engineered weres pretty interesting. I felt like I was missing a lot of back story, though, when it comes to the Lucidites. It wasn't completely distracting, but I felt it worth pointing out. Anyway, the narrator was great, and I did rather enjoy the book.

    "Another great series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Alpha Wolf to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but I am sure the audio is on par.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Another great series in the authors world of Dream Travelers. This series takes place after the Ren series but does a great job as a stand alone series. I love this world Sarah Noffke has created and I was pleasantly surprised with her take werewolves.


    Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Klett – was your favorite?

    As much as I hated the character or Agent Rox I really enjoyed the way Elizabeth brought her attitude to life. She did a fantastic job of making me dislike her and while wanting to know more. I hope Rox stays around for the entire series.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Be careful when you use science to mess with nature, it may bite back!


    Any additional comments?

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audio book by the narrator and I couldn't have been more pleased.

    I have read and listened to many of authors work and this does not disappoint! I love Sarah Noffke's work and this is a great start to another great series of hers. The story was lively and never stagnant and Elizabeth kept the dialogue fresh and interesting. She did a wonderful job narrating this story!!

    "Exciting Paranormal SciFi Series!!"

    As a super fan of Sarah Noffke's Ren Audiobook series I was beyond thrilled to begin this series with his daughter Adelaide as a main character. The Author does not dissapoint in that Adelaide is just as snarky as her father was, maybe even more so. I hope to see her grow as Ren did throughtout this series. Book 1 is fast paced, setting the scene and introducing the characters for the series. Not sure how I feel about Roxie yet but she is a great antagonist to ruffle Adelaides feathers. So far I am liking the werewolves and feel for the situation they are in. Elizabeth Klett is a phenomenal narrator bringing the characters and story to life with very distinct and distinguishable voices. Her range of voices is amazing and she has definitely made it into my top 5 fave narrator list! I look forward to more in this series and from this Author and narrator.

    "The Lucidites are back!"

    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?

    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 cares in the world 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 Adalain, 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 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!

    "Great sci-fi/fantasy book!"
    Any additional comments?

    Alpha Wolf: A Paranormal Science Fiction Thriller (Olento Research #1) by Sarah Noffke, narrated by Elizabeth Klett, is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary. It is a pretty cool book. The men are all taken and put in this research facility for 6 months and experimented on. There are 12 of them. They are kept drugged. One of them has extra strength, after all the the experiments, busts them out, all but one that was asleep/drugged and they missed getting him out. Two gals from different institutes are forced to work together to find the men, the gals are on the good team and want to save the escaped men before they are found again. These two chicks are so obnoxious I want to slap them from here. The rest of the people at the institutes are great. The rest of the story you have to find out by reading yourself...not going to spoil it... Good story except for those annoying women! ugh! The narrator did a wonderful job. Great voice for this book.
