Publisher's Summary

Create lycanthropes. Give them elemental powers. Save the world.  

Jerrell Hawkins has a plan. He’s going to marry Nadine Hartwell, study magic at University, and serve his kingdom in the ongoing war in the prestigious Orichalcum Company led by the hero of the realm. To do this, he needs to obtain a Class. When his plan to create a new, powerful spellcasting class fails, he fears all is lost. Then an enemy sleeper agent burns down his world and Nadine is infected with lycanthropy. 

But Jerrell’s pursuit of a new Class leaves him with strange, controversial abilities. He can create and bond lycanthropes. What’s more, he’s learning to use elemental magic. Along with Nadine, now his bonded companion, he enlists in the military to enact vengeance for the destruction of their home. 

Their enemies are numerous, their abilities make their allies uncomfortable, and nothing is simple. Not even the fate of the world, which just might rest on Jerrell Hawkins’ shoulders.

Well written, but not for me.

I enjoyed the story and the uniqueness of the system. I am a sucker for unique magic or game systems, since it makes it easier to have a character have non-standard progression that feels realistic. The plot isnt bad either.

What made me struggle with rating this story, was the fact that nowhere in the description does it mention that there is a harem (which is generally not my cup of tea) nor does it mention that there are explicit chapters with the harem. Honestly, if it wasnt for the explicit chapters, I'd still not fully like the relationship progression, but I can deal with that.

Please, if you're going to include explicit scenes, please make a note in the description. The people who dont mind that sort of thing will still want to read it, but the people who dont want it, or are on the fence would really appreciate a warning.

Full disclosure, I received a free review copy,

Third person story

This is another story in third person. he said, she said, he said ,she said over and over again. Also the narrator has no inflection in his voice every voice for every character sounds exactly the same.

please please please speak American English

Storyline not to bad. But the inability to read the words in American English is so annoying. The sexual context is at the 12 year old level. I didn't finish.

not your typical litrpg book

I really enjoyed the book when it started I thought it was just a good fantasy book but it turned out to be so much more. I deeply wish I had the next book in the series to listen to I will be on the hunt for more by this Author.

epic high fantasy gamelit!

Great story and narration!

Nathan's dream is to become a war mage. However he is trying to pioneer a new pattern (group of magic abilities that gives a mage their power). With his crush by his side and a pack of werewolves at his heels his world is about to change.

Rafe does a fantastic job of the narration, and really brings this story to life!

I loved the story and can't wait to find out what happens next!

good harem gamelit

I don't like harem or sex in my novels but this one is so good that I could overlook it. The system is wonderfully unique

Pleasantly surprised!💜

It took me a minute to get into this story because it was a a bit much a bit fast but after a few chapters I really started getting into it.
I love a good underdog story, even better when there’s magic and super powers involved.
I loved watching these characters develop throughout the story. Fun and intriguing plot twist that pops up here and there. The narration was pretty good most of the time once I got used to the females having a deeper voice.
This is book 1 with an HEA although the overall story continues on. If you enjoy this genre, I recommend this book.

Elemental Alpha Is An Awesome Read!

Elemental Alpha has magic, mages, war crafters, monsters, and more. The action is none stop and how the characters evolve both in character and skills is an art form. Loved this book and how it ended with the hint of another adventure. I am so looking forward to the sequel!

good story but closing sees..... lacking

spoilers

why didnt MC cast cure lycapithripy on the colonel right when one of the troops landed a good blow? seems like a big plot hole and if not possible a reason explaining why would've been nice.

The Ol' Magical Underdog

While there are extra levels to this world that seem unnecessary, spikes in the relationships at times that feel forced and some pronunciation from the narrator that is distracting (ie. sigh-n-crony, com-b-oh-tont). This mostly fun and magical action adventure is an enjoyable ride with a neat system and I look forward to where the story goes next.
