Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is the thrilling novelisation by Oliver Bowden based on the game series.
'I will journey to the black heart of a corrupt Empire to root out my foes. But Rome wasn't built in a day and it won't be restored by a lone assassin. I am Ezio Auditore da Firenze. This is my brotherhood.'
Rome, once mighty, lies in ruins. The city swarms with suffering and degradation, her citizens living in the shadow of the ruthless Borgia family. Only one man can free the people from the Borgia tyranny - Ezio Auditore, the Master Assassin.
Ezio's quest will test him to his limits. Cesare Borgia, a man more villainous and dangerous than his father the Pope, will not rest until he has conquered Italy. And in such treacherous times, conspiracy is everywhere, even within the ranks of the brotherhood itself...
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is based on the phenomenally successful gaming series. Fans of the game will love these stories. Other titles in the series include Assassin's Creed: Renaissance, Assassin's Creed: Forsaken, Assassin's Creed: The Secret Crusade, and Assassin's Creed: Revelations.
Oliver Bowden is the pen-name of an acclaimed novelist.
The book is amazing however lacks the detail that the game has to offer. Even If u have never played the game before the book is something u have to read and if u have it gives a great read anyhow! Great!!
Excellent and detailed
As with movies, the book version of a story has more detail and a more in-depth look at the characters and surrounding. Love the game and the book. Really hope they bring another one out.
If you like the games, then worth a read
AC Brotherhood is a well written book that compliments the game excellently. Obviously being a massive fan of the game franchise like myself helps!
Having completed both previous games my knowledge of the story is fairly solid, which helps, as this book assumes you have an understanding of what has gone on previously. Having received the game and book as Xmas presents, I have held off playing the game so that I would not ruin the book, having seem some footage of the game from the beginning, the first couple of chapters were easy to visually relate to in the book, which was nice as this book gives you a greater understanding of what is going on, obviously in much mote detail than the game could ever cover.
Potential buyers should be aware that this book has no reference to Abstergo or Desmond and is purely set around Ezio in and around the 1500 era, the book follows Ezio and his attempts to take down the Borgia family and preventing the Apple of Eden falling into Borgia hands again.
My only criticism would be that the ending is a little flat, but apart from that I thought it was a decent read. Kept me hooked all the way.
