05 September 2023
An atmospheric, feminist retelling of the early life of famed villainess Morgan le Fay, set against the colourful chivalric backdrop of Arthurian legend.

When King Uther Pendragon murders her father and tricks her mother into marriage, Morgan refuses to be crushed. Trapped amid the machinations of men in a world of isolated castles and gossiping courts, she discovers secret powers. Vengeful and brilliant, it's not long before Morgan becomes a worthy adversary to Merlin, influential sorcerer to the king. But fighting for her freedom, she risks losing everything – her reputation, her loved ones and her life.

Reviews for Morgan Is My Name

'This is the Arthurian legend as you rarely see it: told not by Uther, Arthur or Merlin, or indeed their male champions, but by the complicated woman they condemned... For lovers of the untold story, Morgan Is My Name is a convincing and compelling read.' Lucy Holland, author of Sistersong 'Keetch’s Morgan does not disappoint… literally fire and a perfect harbinger of the woman Morgan is destined to become!’ Stacey Thomas, author of The Revels 'Compelling and poignant, Sophie Keetch’s prose is as mesmerizing as the ocean’s tides... A stunning delight.' Rebecca Ross, author of A River Enchanted ‘A very real, passionate retelling of Morgan’s story, with detail about political and magical lives, and the women who are such a vital part of the tale.’ Tamora Pierce, author of the Protector of the Small Quartet 'Turning the legends on their heads, Keetch finds new potential in them.' Sunday Times
