Assassin's Creed Valhalla by Matthew J. Kirby- Geirmund's Saga - A Review

 Assassin's Creed Valhalla -  Geirmund's Saga by Matthew J. Kirby is another book in the Assassin's Creed universe and it is a fantasy with historical fiction elements. The book in November 2020 by Penguin.

The book is set in the world of Assassin's Creed Valhalla and we follow the story of Geirmund Hel-Hide, who is a legendary Viking. I enjoyed reading this book. Books set in the Assassin's Creed universe are my favourites since they are always action-packed and sometimes they feel like reading a historical fiction book instead of a game novelization. 
It is a nice Viking story with many battle scenes and a lot of travelling. One thing that I didn't like is the fact that there is no mention of Assassins anywhere in the book. There is a slight mention of Templars without mentioning their name and that's it. I wish we had seen more of it.

Rating: 3 Stars
