MATTHEW J KIRBY is the critically acclaimed and award-winning author of the middle grade novels The Clockwork Three, Icefall, and the Assassin’s Creed series Last Descendants, among many others. He has won the Edgar Award for Best Juvenile Mystery, the PEN Center USA award for Children’s Literature, and the Judy Lopez Memorial Award.
“The era-hopping is one of the things I love about Assassin’s Creed. I’ve always been fascinated by history, the stories of cause and effect that we tell ourselves to create our identities, and I’m a sucker for secret histories, especially.”
