Assassin's Creed - The Magus Conspiracy by Kate Heartfield - A Review


Assassin's Creed - The Magus Conspiracy by Kate Heartfield is a historical fiction / fantasy book that takes place in the well-known Assassin's Creed universe. The book will be released on August 2nd 2022 by Aconyte.

Disclaimer: I was lucky enough to receive an eARC of this book by Netgalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

The war between Assassins and Templars wreaks havoc in the Victorian era, in this breakneck thriller which opens up a whole new chapter of the Assassin’s Creed universe and of course I really enjoyed reading it as it's full of the rivalries between Assassin's and Templars.
I liked the storyline and the writing but I would prefer it to be more action packed. It seems that all the action happened towards the end. However I really liked how we got to the ending and the plot twists. 
I also really liked our main characters and especially Pierrette, who is strong willed and smart. 
As with every Assassin's Creed novel I really liked the historical elements and the historical figures that we meet. 

I recommend this book even if you are new to the Assassin's Creed franchise.

Rating: 4 Stars

About the book:
London, 1851 – When Pierrette, a daring acrobat performing at the Great Exhibition, rescues the mathematician Ada Lovelace from a gang of thugs, she becomes immersed in an ancient feud between Assassins and Templars. But Lovelace is gravely ill, and shares her secrets with Pierrette, sending the acrobat in search of a terrible weapon which she’d been developing for a shadowy figure known as “the Magus”. Pierrette’s only ally is Simeon Price, Lovelace’s childhood friend, who belongs to a Brotherhood devoted to free will. With Simeon’s aid, they uncover a startling web of political assassinations destabilizing Europe. As they race to foil the Templars’ deadly plot, murders and bombs are everywhere they look, but hope is nowhere in sight.
