Assassin's Creed Fate of the Gods (Last Descendants #3) by Matthew J. Kirby - A Review


Assassin's Creed Fate of the Gods by Matthew J. Kirby is the third book in the Last Descendants series. It is a fantasy book with some historical elements and was published 2017 by Scholastic. It is of course set in the same universe as the famous Assassin's Creed video game.

We continue to follow our main characters from the previous two books. Now only one piece of the Trident of Eden remains. Isaiah, a rogue Templar agent, has discovered both the faith prong and the fear prong of this powerful relic. Should he possess the devotion prong, there is little that can stop him. For the time being, Owen and his fellow teens have established an uneasy alliance across Assassin and Templar lines in order to stop Isaiah while they still can. 
Over a thousand years earlier, Styrbjorn the Strong, a Danish warrior, leads the Jomsvikings against the Danish king, Harald Bluetooth. It is on those Viking battlefields that the secrets of the devotion prong lie. It is there that the fate of the world, the truth behind the teens' collective unconsciousness, and their ancestral links to one another lie. 
History has already been written. The rest is up to Owen, Javier, and the other members of their unlikely alliance. The actions they take will change the world of Assassin's Creed forever.

This is the conclusion to the Last Descendants trilogy and I really enjoyed it. We got to see what happened to our heroes and how their actions (and their ancestors) affected the world. 
Fate of the Gods was my favourite in the trilogy. It was action-packed, both in the past and in the present day and we also got to know our characters better. 
The story is simple but it works great and the world-building is really good. I also really liked the ending as it tied up everything.
