So many thanks to Night Owl Reviews for the ARC of this wonderful book! I really can't wait for the movie based on these book to come out! HAHA, as I'm writing this the trailer is playing! This is kind of cool!
I read “Assassin's Creed Heresy” in one day. It was interesting to see another story of Joan of Arc, but in a completely new way. The story made me feel like I was really there alongside her though her life. I really wish this book would have been longer! The story was fast paced and the characters were all alive and very likable. You get no cookie cutter characters here!
If you’re looking for a new adventures, I would start with book one and work your way to this one. Get started right now! You won't be disappointed!
From New York Times bestselling author Christie Golden comes an original story set in the universe of Assassin’s Creed. Reliving the memories of his ancestor who fought beside Joan of Arc, high-ranking Templar Simon Hathaway slowly uncovers secrets of the past that could dangerously impact his present…and that of the entire Templar order.
An endless conflict. An old wrong. A new revelation.
Simon Hathaway, member of the Templar Inner Sanctum, brings a cool head and detached manner to his new role as Head of Abstergo Industry’s Historical Research Division.
But Simon also has an insatiable curiosity, and is fascinated by the thought of experiencing history first-hand through his ancestor--Gabriel Laxart, who fought alongside the legendary Joan of Arc.
When he enters the newly-designed Animus for its initial project, Simon finds himself unprepared for what he discovers: How deep the conflict between the Templars and the Assassins goes. What Gabriel will do for the woman he both loves and reveres.
And the most dangerous truth of all: Who is the heretic…and who is the true believer.
