Overview

Older, wiser, and more deadly than ever, Master Assassin Ezio Auditore embarks on an epic journey to find the lost library of Altaїr in this novel based on the Assassin's Creed™ video game series.

Five keys are needed to access the library—to find them, Ezio must travel to the troubled city of Constantinople, where a growing army of Templars threaten to destabilise the Ottoman Empire.

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!"

It was an excellent adaptation of the video game. I have one question though in the game, why are Ezio's hidden blades stronger than Altair's?

I just beat Assassin's Creed Revelations a few days ago and I have to say that this book is exactly like the game. There are also little bits of Italian in the book and some of the words Nook can not translate. Overall I think this is a good book for any AC fan or any fighting game/book fan, or really, anyone at all.

This book was fantastic, it gives you a whole new perspective in the game, as well as showing more of Ezio and his thought process throughout his adventure.
