Publisher's Summary

I'm Olivia Carter, a covenless witch.

Most witches have a coven. Not me. For me, the protection a coven offers does not outweigh the risk of being discovered.

I've worked odd jobs here and there peddling (mostly) legal potions I brew when I can. But when an opportunity to work for the vampires fell in my lap, I took it.

I heal the people they feed on and don't ask too many questions.

After less than six months working this gig, a girl turns up dead, drained of blood.

Of course, I am the first person the police pay a visit to. However, it's not me they want to blame it on. They want my employer. I might want to stay under the radar, but lying about murder is not something I do.

Unfortunately, my favorite vampire and best friend has been missing for a week.

To find my friend and the real murderer, I'll have to use the magic I've been hiding and hope no one finds out. That won't be easy with a coven of witches tossing fireballs at my head and a persistent detective who might be stalking me.

Borrowed Magic is a pause-resisting urban fantasy with a sassy heroine, vampires that don't sparkle, and magic that's unique and refreshing.

Action packed adventure..

This book had everything it needed to hold my interest. The ending indicates there will be more to come, I just wish it wasn't in small installments. The narration was well done and animated. I would recommend this book for a short action packed paranormal listen. I was given a free copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily decided to leave this review.

Magical Beginning

I really enjoyed this story. I was captivated from start to finish. I wish it were longer because I do feel that the world building and backstory needs more explanation but being as this is only book 1 and the subsequent books are at least double in pages I have faith that the author will elaborate in future books. The narrator was on point in bringing the story and characters to life - I would not hesitate to listen to more of her work. I look forward to more in this series and from this author and narrator

This book grabbed your attention at the beginning and kept it all the way until the end. It even gives you a glimpse of the next in the series, which makes you want to run out and get it to see what else happens. Definitely worth the listen.

Quite Enjoyable and Quick

This story was entertaining and kept me wanting more. I was dumbfounded when it ended! I needed to know what happened next! Olivia had moments if being annoying, but given all the situations she found herself in... her reactions weren't too terrible. Laurel Schroeder was fantastic worth her narration. Each character was distinct with their own personality. I have to know what happens next!

Magical audio story

This is a short novella audio but it was great. Love audios about Urban Fantasy and witches of any kind .
The main female character is Olivia who is a witch. But she’s not a normal witch. Olivia likes to plan everything out and Olivia likes to use certain poisons to make up her magic. This was a great short listen

Laurel the narrator did a great work . Love her voice , how her voice is sexy , steady and clear . Laurel was fantastic

This one is unfortunately not for me.

This is hard to write. I had a hard time getting through this. It didn't feel as thought there was much depth to the characters and the story itself was also lacking here. In reading the summary, I was very interested in the book but, unfortunately, I didn't feel like it delivered. I felt a bit bored listening to it. I was just not very impressed with the author. Normally I like the narration of Laurel Schroeder. Again, I felt bored. Now, because I normally like her I am thinking this too falls back on the story as opposed to the narration but I felt like I had to give it three stars because I really didn't enjoy the narration this time either. It just seemed a bit flat to me and I have not felt that way about her before...maybe she couldn't get into the book either? I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. Hopefully better luck next time. Maybe it was just my own personal tastes. I purposely didn't look at any other reviews in an effort to keep my opinion from being influenced by others so maybe I am the minority here...?

A bit of a rough start to the series.

Borrowed Magic is the first book Stephanie Foxe's Witch's Bite series, and it feels like it should perhaps be the 2nd book or rather that there is something missing. What do I mean? Well we jump right into the story without really getting to know the main character. I wasn't really given any reason to identify or even like her other than the fact that she was the main character. Also plenty of characters are just tossed out and talked about as if we should already know them. There is some interesting action and I somewhat decent story, but I just wish there had been more world/story/character development. As it was it felt incomplete. I saw on Amazon that people complained that it ended on a cliffhanger, and while I suppose that is true, and I don't know that I would actually say that. The main story arc felt finished to me, the 'cliffhanger' per se felt more like a way to intrigue people to keep reading the series. Just felt like a bit of a rough start to the series to me.

I received a copy of this audio title in exchange for an unbiased review

A Short Teaser

A short but good start to this series. It's amusing and we'll developed.
The narrator's voice is clear and her characters are easy to follow. The dialogue is done really well, but I felt the descriptive parts were a little flat at times. But still did not take away from story.

Bang goes the Witch

I usually like longer reads instead of shorts but loved this one by Stephanie Foxe I thought the narrator was good and would probably like better over time as it takes me a while to get used to their style. I like it when a book is not predictable, and original. I love the fast passed kick ass style , never boring. definitely will read others

Nice teaser and intro to the series

I like this world and this book sets it up nicely. It's something along the lines of Dresden Files though in this world, the supernaturals are known about instead of hidden. IT's a world where stories can continue indefinitely as new mysteries need solving...

My problem is with the narrator, I'm afraid. She seemed to get better as the story went on (or I just got used to it), but there's a repetitive, sing-songy cadence to her reading especially at the beginning that was so prescribed I could predict the rhythm and pitch of each sentence. I almost quit listening after the first few minutes because it was so annoying, but I kept with it. And either she got better or I became so absorbed in the story that I stopped noticing.

But overall, I liked it the story, the world, and the characters.
