Unexpectedly good

I listened to this book just to decide whether it would be appropriate to recommend to my middle school students. I really enjoyed it, and I have no real interest in the Assassin's Creed video game, aside from the historical aspect. This book was well-written and managed to show both historical and contemporary perspectives on an often unknown bit of American history while still managing to keep the reader interested in the contemporary aspect of the story. I am looking forward to the next novel!

Teens Enter The Animus

What did you love best about Last Descendants?

SPOILER ALERT: That there were multiple Animus users that were able to access the same memory sync file due to the fact that all of their ancestors had crossed paths with one another within the same timeline.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Last Descendants?

SPOILER ALERT: There was a character in the story who was very naive upon his entry into the story and when he accessed his ancestors' memory, he ended up feeling all of the emotional pain and the exact thoughts racing through his ancestors' mind when he experienced being beaten by a group of racist thugs.

Afterward, when his role in the memory was over, it was almost like he walked out of it all with PTSD.

What about Dan Bittner’s performance did you like?

By far the best narrator I've had the pleasure listening to. In terms of variety for the voices for each character in the story, he has both quality and quantity. There were points where he did reuse certain voices, but it wasn't as often as I would've expected like most audios and even when he did, you really didn't mind it one bit.

Another key note: being that this is the world of Assassin's Creed, he really came through with all the different dialects of each ancestral ethnicity with extreme precision! I thought that alone was fantastic!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was just excited to be on the ride from beginning to end.

Any additional comments?

If you're an AC fan, don't be shy, pick this up and there is 2 more books that continue this story.

Could not Stop Listening To!

This book has more suspense than the original 5 games, that's saying a lot for this series. I think it was because it had to do with the characters going into the past for personal reasons. The narrator was okay at the beginning, but I got used to it.

It Is A Great Story

At first it begins slow, stablishing all of the characters (6 kids, 6 ancestors and Monroe). Then the story begins to get interesting.
Then something happens…
And then you just can’t stop caring about the characters.
Great story.

it's a book it just feels wrong though

it was a good book but all it does is call back to the Assassin's Creed games and for me it feels like it doesn't really fit with Assassin's Creed lore it's a book it just feels wrong though

Great addition to the assassin's Creed world.

loved listening to this series. the books stay true to the assassin's Creed world. the voice acting is excellent. Matthew Kirby does a fantastic job for both young adult readers and adults alike. Would definitely recommend!
