The full synopsis of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: Geirmund’s Saga is as follows:
Mid-9th century. The Viking attacks and invasions are shattering England’s kingdoms. Born into a royal lineage of Norwegian kings, Geirmund Hel-hide sets out for adventure to prove his worth as a Viking and a warrior. A perilous journey across the sea brings him into contact with a being out of myth and grants him a mysterious ring that promises both great power and bitter betrayal. As Geirmund rises in the ranks of King Guthrum’s legendary army, he will have to use all his cunning to face the many dangers of a land ravaged by war . . .
Fighting alongside his band of loyal warriors, his path will soon lead him into a conflict as old as the gods themselves.
The book is being written by author Matthew J. Kirby whose own published works include the novels The Clockwork Three, Icefall, The Dark Gravity Sequence series, and the Assassin’s Creed tie in books of The Last Descendants series.
