It’s official: ‘Assassins Creed’ is being turned into a novel and will be written by Matthew J. Kirby, author of ‘The Lost Kingdom’ and ‘Icefall’. And check out that sweet cover:
After the news was announced, Matthew took to his blog to answer the questions we were all dying to know, the first being how did this beautiful thing come to be?!
