Books Based on Video Games!
Here’s a blurb for anyone who’s not heard of this before:
An endless conflict. An old wrong. A new revelation.
Simon Hathaway, member of the Templar Inner Sanctum, brings a cool head and detached manner to his new role as Head of Abstergo Industry’s Historical Research Division.
But Simon also has an insatiable curiosity, and is fascinated by the thought of experiencing history first-hand through his ancestor Gabriel Laxart, who fought alongside the legendary Joan of Arc.
When he enters the newly-designed Animus for its initial project, Simon finds himself unprepared for what he discovers: how deep the conflict between the Templars and the Assassins goes, and what his ancestor is willing to do for the woman he loves. And as he slowly uncovers secrets of the past, Simon is confronted with the most dangerous truth of all:
Who is the heretic . . . and who is the true believer?

I really liked The Fireman. Didn’t realize it came from a video game. In fact, I’ve read a couple you shared and didn’t realize it. I do have several games that I wish they’d make into movies. Some of those trailers are so good!
I didn’t know The Fireman was either, until I looked up a few for this post to see what else was on offer 🙂
TOTAL anathæma and a complete waste of time & space! We should be encouraging ALL children to READ A PROPER BOOK instead of exercising two fingers of each hand to “kill anything that moves” which is what all video games boil down to as far as I can tell!
Absolutely! Although, if you have a teenager that won’t read -anything-
maybe these game tie-ins are at least getting a book into their hands. It’s a tricky one. Any book has got to be better than no books, even if it’s not to our approval.
Thanks for your comment, Paul!
