Title -  The Witch's Secret 
Author - Katherine Sparrow 
Series - The Fay Morgan #1 
Genre - Urban Fantasy 
Published - February 6th 2017
Format - Kindle Unlimited

Morgan le Fay, the great witch and legendary little sister to King Arthur, has lived well beyond her wild and wicked past. These days she's content to run her Wiccan supply shop in Pike Place Market and watch out for Seattle's supernatural residents. Then two men stumble through her door. The first is a werewolf. The second? He seems familiar, though she has no memory of him. 

Soon Morgan is dragged into a mystery that includes dragons, knights, and a mysterious witch hellbent on revenge. She will come face to face with truths and secrets about herself she has long forgotten. As if that weren't enough, the man who she has no memories of? He is completely charming, but seems incapable of telling her the truth about anything. Even worse, she just might be falling for him. Fans of the Dresden Files and the Twenty-sided Sorceress series should enjoy this book.

Morgan Le Fay has always kept her real identity a secret a long forgotten past. She's currently running her own magic shop in Pikes Place Market when in bursts two strange men with a pair of trolls hot on their heels. Morgan knows the troll sisters, and that something is off with them so she saves the guys and fixes the trolls. The stranger men who showed up in her shop have her necklace from long ago that allows a witch to combine power and become stronger. 

When the necklace is taken the truth of the strangers come out that one of them is a werewolf and the other her rival Merlin. Together they must work together if they are to stop the witch who has her eyes set on Morgan. As if stopping a witch isn't enough a dragon has shown up in her shop demanding that she needs to save her father the Red Dragon. Memories of her past are coming flooding back, when she learns the truth and why she's forced herself to forget them what will happen? 

I like Morgan she's had a long life with its own issues to overcome, and now her past is making an appearance bringing up all those feelings. I wasn't sure about Merlin at first but he's proven that he's willing to do whatever it takes to protect Morgan even if it means risking his life.

I've had my eye on this one because the cover is stunning and decided to give it a shot. I love the concept of Morgan le Fay living as a modern witch in Seattle. The author breathes modern life into an epic character that I found easy to connect with and enjoyed. I like the idea of the supernaturals living among the humans, while they don't know that they really exist. The author has done a great job creating an exciting, fast paced action packed story. While it does have some grammar issues they don't take away from the story. This is my first book by the author and can't wait to read the next one and see what's going to happen with Morgan and her band of friends.
