Last Descendants Assassin s Creed Last Descendants 1 by Matthew J Kirby Book ReviewI must admit something I love video games It s not the most shocking revelation, but I actually enjoy games for the same reason that I enjoybooks great storytelling One of my favorite stories in games is the continuing story of the Assassin s Creed universe, and that story hasnow been driven into the Young Adult book world with Matthew J Kirby s Last Descendants Assassin s Creed Last Descendants 1 Here is thesynopsis Nothing in Owen s life has been right since his father died in prison, accused of a crime Owen is certain he didn t commit Monroe, the IT guyat school, might finally bring Owen the means to clear his father s name by letting him use an Animus a device that lets users explore thegenetic memories buried within their own DNA The experience brings Owen than he bargained for During a simulation, Owen uncovers theexistence of an ancient and powerful relic long considered legend the Trident of Eden Now two secret organizations will stop at nothing to takepossession of this artifact the Brotherhood of Assassins and the Templar Order It soon becomes clear to Owen that the only way to save himselfis to find the Trident first.Under the guidance of Monroe, Owen and a group of other teenagers go into a memory they all share within their DNA the 1863 Draft Riots inNew York City Owen and his companions will find themselves tested on the gritty streets of New York, and their experiences in the past willhave far reaching consequences in the present.I loved the transition of the series into the YA genre Bringing together this random group of young teenagers gives the readers of a connectionwith the story of the AC universe, with each character coming from a difficult background and almost becoming the readers eyes and ears, as eachteenager is as much of an outsider to the war between the Assassins and the Templar Order Learning about the war and the technology of theanimus, the teens go to a tumultuous time period to an era where their ancestors were at the forefront of the Civil War, showing the impactthe war had on a city divided such as New York, and the stakes of that war.It s message of racism and divide between the country has clearly never been real and has not had as deep as a connection as it does intoday s political and social scene, as our country faces a similar divide once The story does a great job of highlighting the struggleseach teen deals with, from racial or societal issues to questions of friendship, sexuality, disabilities and This is a book that is just asmulti cultured as the video games themselves, and the deep use of the AC mythology was perfectly used in this new story With this being thefirst of a new book series, this is a fantastic read that helps start a wonderful new story arc, and I highly recommend it I give this book a10 10, and hope you guys will pick up this book today
