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.
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 ...more
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. ...more

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.
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 ...more
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 ...more

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

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 have not lived ...more
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). ...more

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.
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 ...more
