** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
I have listened to many many many of this authors books and have really loved them, until this one..It just didn't do it for me...I was excited by the title and subject matter...but it was really 3rd person..and I am normally ok with it, even if it isn't my fave writing style...and it never really took off for me...Ymmv...I still love this author though!!!

This is the first book in the four-books Olento Research series by Sarah Noffke. Although set in the same world of dream travelers as Noffke's other series and featuring several well-known characters from other books, it works perfectly well even if you are not familiar with Noffke's previous works, as plenty of history is provided. However, if you've listened to/read at least the Ren series in the past, you may feel a greater connection to the story right from the start.
Ren's daughter, Adelaide, is one of the protagonists who needs to find twelve men who were abducted and genetically modified by a scrupulous corporation to be part wolf, part human. Snarky Adelaide is teamed up with sassy FBI agent Rox. Two assertive, abrasive women make for plenty of banter back and forth, as Adelaide thoroughly loathes Rox. The storyline is intriguing and nothing like the usual werewolves' sagas. As it is the first in a new series, it isn't terribly fast-paced as characters are introduced and background is provided, making sure all the characters are fully fleshed out. But there were still plenty of suspenseful as well as very emotional moments. The male characters were really interesting, too, but the limelight was definitely stolen by Adelaide and Rox. The story certainly kept my attention throughout and I can't wait to find out where this story will be heading in book 2, Lone Wolf.
Elizabeth Klett narrates the story in a nice pace and with a pleasant, clear tone that is easy to listen to. Using a wide variety of accents and easily distinguishable voices she covers a large number of characters effortlessly and really brings the story to life. There were no issues with the production of the audiobook.
A great mix of science fiction and paranormal / fantasy and highly recommended if you enjoy action, banter, characters to root for, nasty villains, suspense and very emotional moments. Basically, there's something here for everybody.

There are so much stuff in this book like lots of special powers, battle between good and evil guys and of course werewolfs. Plenty of action and different characters. I did liked it even thought some characters did annoy me a bit.
