The books follow various time periods and revolve around the Assassins at war with the Knights Templar.

Requiescat in pace

Absolutely not a literary masterpiece at all, but this final novel was just the best one of of the Ezio Auditore trilogy (far better than the previous Altair book for me).
A real action-packed page-turner and the sad ending was a real gut-wrenching one.

Not bad at all for a videogame franchise based reading.

Definitely a page turner after reading book 3 of the Assassin's Creed series. Love this book as much as the last. It gave a good ending to the life of the well-loved Master Assassin and Mentor, Ezio Auditore. It also gave a close to the life of my favourite Master Assassin and Mentor - Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad. Two of my favourite Master Assassins in the same book, what more can you ask for? An awesome read for me.

For those of you turned off by Bowden's rather uneducated, for lack of a better word, writing style, I can assure you it is gradually improving, though there are many sentences that simply make me grind my teeth. I am also glad to finally be done with Ezio, as I felt his character has been long overused, but for his fans, fear not, his story ends well.

Most of the book was, as another reviewer said, written like the writer had been sitting next to a person playing the game and written everything into a book, including the training sessions in Constantinopoli and the pointless running for errands for Sofia. The text broke the illusion of depicting speech of the era or location several times (I doubt that the phrase red herring was known then, incredulous that the Ottoman would replace wine with cranberry juice [with cranberry being fairly ...more

This book marks the end of Ezio's journey through the Assassin's Era, he takes us to Istanbul and Masyaf as learn an important life lesson, the idea of the book was nice but as I see Ezio grow older and weaker I felt so chocked up though I never really liked him .. it is poetic in it's own way but I was mostly sad because I just wanted him to "rest" most of the book
the age gap between him and Sophia was a such a turn off to me, their relationship didn't make sense to me but I guess it worked

Had to read this for work. Not too bad, I didn't get to read the earlier books and I don't play the video games. But the story moved quickly enough on its own.

The trilogy of Ezio Auditore ends here.
The book follows a story of Assassin’s Creed: Revelations video game. Many people don’t the idea of this book because of it’s close relationship with video game, but the series of this author are supposed to be like this. The biggest part of the book is telling the story of Ezio while he was fighting Templars in Constantinople. But the last part of the book is telling the story of Assassin's Creed: Embers, an animated short film created by UbiWorkshop.

One star goes for telling the story happily omitted from the game and moving Leo's death scene (frankly, I don't need Bowden's masterly use of words to be moved by that sort of thing, and I definitely have a soft spot for AC Leonardo).

Assassin's Creed: Revelations is the thrilling novelisation by Oliver Bowden based on the game series. Older, wiser and more deadly than ever, Master Assassin Ezio Auditore embarks on an epic journey to find the lost library of Altair - a library that may hold the key to defeating the Templars for ever. However, a shocking discovery awaits him. The library holds no only a hidden knowledge but also the most unsettling secret the world has ever known; a secret the Templars hope to use to control

Before you read this book, MAKE SURE you read The Secret Crusade first. It is a series for a reason.
Oliver Bowden has once again made it hard to put down the book. Although it is but a book, I found myself grown attached to the characters and finding it hard to put down.

I love the Assassin'a Creed franchise. It's one of the only games, other than Batman, that emphasizes stealth and badassery equally and I dig that. This is my first AC book, but I am an avid sci-fi and fantasy reader so I'm used to a story needing some setup. Revelations simply did not live up to my expectations.

The book is separated into three acts and they generally follow: Act I, how Ezio gets to the new city and who he meets; Act II, the adventure; Act III, the epilogue. Act I is a little

I have to say that initially I was skeptical about how a video game and novel tie-in would work. Let's just say that my skepticism was unwarranted. I loved this book.

Admittedly, I join the Assassin's Creed books a little late in the series but I have already developed a liking for the character of Ezio Auditore through the video games themselves. Interestingly, I've yet to play the Revelations game but I'm really looking forward to it now!

This tale is told a little later on in Ezio's life and

Assassin’s creed by Oliver Bowden

The book is about Eizo Auditore master assassins who embarks on a journey to find the hidden knowledge and a unsettiling secret of libary

The best bit of the is on page 23 when Claudia says something funny but I’m not going to tell you because that would spoil the book

I would recommend the assassins creed books to assassin creed fans if you like the game you will love the book the book is for boys ranging from 12 to 17
I love the books and the games so you will

So-so writing, but rather faithful (really, Bowden got everything, including the tutorial) adaptation of what happened in the game (plus a epilogue of sorts).

Still, some nice lines inside:
___________
No man should pass from this would without knowing some kindness, some chance of redemption.

How can I regret the only life I have ever known?

A wounded heart sees all wisdom as the point of a knife.

Ezio: We may be walking to our doom, Maria.
Maria: We may. But we walk together.

I absolutely loved this book!

I know that it's not (in terms of good literature) what many would call a great novel. But for a novelisation of a video game, it is surely a master work.

Yes, I noticed errors along the way, and a couple of things that just don't quite work. But that didn't stop me sinking right into the story and falling madly in love with the adventure and life of the protaganist, Ezio Auditore.

Revelations is the fourth in the book series (the third and final concerning Ezio).

It is a great book but i think it will be bettter if it is longer. It should be one more book between brotherhood and Revelations.It is a complicated story but i will explain my best.

His quest in this book is about discovering more about Altair, a mentor of the Assasins.His adventure taking place in constantinople.

Edzio got a memory of Altiar that helps him to find masyaf keys to destroy apple of Eden. Apple if Eden is something that can harms people minds .Not only Altiars memory but also local

upon the golden shores of Istanbul Ezio's story comes to a satisfying end with good characters and a few good twists and turns in the story.
his long quest will lead him fron Masyaf to Istanbul in search of the keys needed to unlock Altair's library and he will meet new friends and enemies. and as a fan of both the books and games i very much recommend this book to all lovers of a good story.

This was a wonderful conclusion of Ezio's story. I fell in-love with the game but the books brought it to a new level. I would recommend this series to anyone. You don't have to know anything about the game to enjoy this series.

This book is about the assassin that try to kill some important people that is bad. My favorite character is the assassin because he did all of this because of the justice.

I enjoyed this book. for me it gave more depth to Ezio. I like how it stayed close to the game but also showed more character development, especially the relationship between Ezio and Sophia.

How do you make Assassin's Creed bad? How do you make Assassin's Creed boring? How do you take a franchise that iconic and make a gamer cringe at the name Ezio Auditore da Firenze?

Ask Oliver Bowden.

Given its apparent accuracy to the game (it's been a long time, and I didn't read too far), it just goes to show that style will make or break a story, and Bowden regrettably has none. From the first over-described fight scene to the telling slog that follows, there is nothing redeeming about this

“How naïve to believe that there might be a single answer to every question. Every mystery. That there exists a lone, divine light that rules over everything. They say it is a light that brings truth and love. I say it is a light that blinds us—and forces us to stumble about in ignorance. I long for the day when men will turn away from invisible monsters, and once more embrace a more rational view of the world. But these new religions are so convenient—and promise such terrible punishment should one reject them—I worry that fear shall keep us stuck to what is truly the greatest lie ever told . . .” 12 likes
