ASSASSIN'S CREED FRAGMENTS: THE BLADE OF AIZU

Olivier Gay

 

The fate of Japan will change...

1868. The Boshin War is about to break out.

The Templars, infiltrated among the Emperor's closest advisers, pushed the sovereign to launch a campaign against the Shogun Tokugawa, himself supported by the Brotherhood of Assassins. Is the glorious era of the samurai coming to an end?

A 16-year-old Japanese girl, Atsuko grew up in the wealthy neighborhoods of Aizu City, in the shadow of her brother Ibuka. Promised to an arranged marriage, the young girl hides a secret: she wields weapons just as well as her brother, whose talent with the sword actually masks an insurmountable fear of combat.

When war is declared, Ibuka must leave to fight alongside their father for the honor of the family. Defying the tradition forbidding women to take part in battles and wanting to protect her brother, Atsuko enlists in secret as a simple soldier, eager to show the extent of her talents.

But in the face of manipulations and conspiracies that overwhelm the two teenagers, will brotherly love be stronger? Stronger than convictions and honor?


Experience the heart-pounding first novel Assassin's Creed Fragments , set in the final moments of medieval Japan.
