What do you get when you mix magic with one of the most prestigious dogs in Germany? You get something special and powerful. In a time when witches were hunted down and burned, a famous alchemist devised a plan to help protect them. One particular puppy, who is predestined for someone in our time, learns all she can before heading on the journey of her life.
My mother always told me and my siblings that we were special. But that's something all mothers say.... Isn't it? What you don't always hear is that you're part of the litter of Great Dane puppies destined to protect the witches and warlocks throughout time. We just have to find one another, before our time runs out....

Diana's writing is great. Her story draws you in.
Kat manages to bring these characters to life with her voice. You can hear the characters grow as the story advances.

"Absolutely 5 huge stars!"
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have to say, this is honestly the first book I’ve read or listened to that is told completely from the point of view of an animal. It was great! There was such a new idea on magic that was all over this book, it was awesome. I went through a lot of emotions with this story…anger, happiness, awe, sadness, curiousity, and love. Any book that can make me go through so many good and bad emotions is definitely a winner!! There is one single thing that I would change about this book though….I would make it much longer!! I am hoping to be able to get my hands on the second book as soon as it comes out so I can continue the story! Definitely pick up this book; you won’t regret it!
"Kat did it again"
Kat did a great job in Breed by Magic. She was the voice of a dog and was great. Cant wait till book 2 comes out
in the top for this genre
the magical quality of the story. The fact that theses dogs are so special and as the na says Breed for Magic. That someday they will be a companions to witches and their guardians
SHE IS this dog. I have had the pleasure of listening many books by Kat Marlowe and in my opinion this is her best. She id the dog. WAHT A job !!!
when carl was dying you could hear the sadness.
This author and Kat Marlowe are the perfect match, I hope to hear she has done the other books
"Bred by magic"
The author has created a magical story where the puppies are talking to their mother. We have fun with them and see them grow in to strong magical Great Danes bred to protect. One of these puppies is destined to protect a powerful witch. A enjoyable audio book to listen to.
"What a fun story"
This was such a fun story told from the puppy point of view. My 13 year old even had to listen! She loved that it was told from the puppy's view! I can't wait for more in this series. I was reluctant to listen at first but it was so worth it! Kat does a wonderful job narrating as well.
An enjoyable short story that does what it was intended to do, draw you into the main book. It worked. I am intrigued beyond words. I loved the narration by Kat Marlowe. Well worth the listen.
