This book reminded me why we read adaptations. The story was interesting and flowed well from one point to another, the characters were well-fleshed out and believable, and the connections to the game were both numerous and complimentary. The book did what adaptations are supposed to do: It reintroduced us to the plot in a more digestible form and provided more in-depth perspectives on the characters we know and love. Reading this particular adaptation was particularly refreshing because so many book adaptations of popular movies and games are so incredibly disappointing.
I won't deny that there are faults with the book. Some of the plot points adapted from the game - for example, the way that the keys to Altair's library glow and trigger a genetic memory - are left unexplained, and this lack of explanation makes them stand out as not fitting in to the novelization. Some of the character relationships from previous games are left unexplained, but that's just me nitpicking. The one thing that really jarred me was the sentence structure: There were an astonishing amount of fragmented sentences, which grated on the reading experience. However, this was one problem in what is otherwise a superb adaptation.
To the writer, I say, "Well done!"

    Another wonderful addition to the Assassin's Creed series...

    As they say; "A page turner....". Reading the next one now. (Would like to return to the continent.)
