In "Last Descendants," Owen and a group of other teens located the first piece of an ancient and powerful relic long considered a legend-the Trident of Eden. This piece was sought by the Brotherhood of Assassins and the Templar Order, but before either organization could take the piece, it was stolen by an unknown, third party. The tenuous relationship between Owen and the teens fractured, with some taking sides with the Templars, and others with the Assassins.

"Last Descendants" book 2 picks up weeks after the events of book 1. There are still two pieces of the Trident of Eden to find, and both groups are determined to not repeat their mistakes. The next piece is said to have been buried with Mongol Warlord Genghis Khan, whose tomb has never been found. Now the teens on either side of the conflict will have to go deep into simulations in war-torn Mongolian China in a race against time to discover the next piece, and ensure their safety, before the others.


Thank you Scholastic for providing me with a Paperback of Tomb of Khan for review. This in no way affected my opinion.

Assassin's Creed: Last Descendants: Tomb of the Khan was full of non-stop action. My favorite scene is when Owen, Javier and a assassin named Griffin try to infiltrate Abstergo Base called Aerie. Owen is captured but the others get away. This scene had a lot of action which made it very exciting.

My favorite character is Owen who is a teenage boy who went into the Animus. He wanted to figure out what happened the night his father was arrested. Since Monroe couldn't help him he turned to the assassins for help. In return Owen enters the Animus to find a Prong of Eden.

I highly recommend this book. I already have a bunch of friends at school excited to read these books. Assassin's Creed: Last Descendants: Tomb of the Khan is exciting and full of mystery and action. 5 Out of 5 Stars.
