Assassin’s Creed Renaissance is based on the game “Assassin’s Creed 2”. Having only played “Assassin’s Creed”, I was expecting a kinda Sci-fi type book, but this is nothing like that, as it only focuses on the actual Assassin himself.
The book is set in the late 1400s and focuses on the main character, Ezio Auditore, after his family gets brutally betrayed. This leads onto him discovering that his father was not just a banker, but a member of a secret group dedicated to protecting mankind.
So, the book is about Ezio, and is his journey of revenge and retribution as he seeks out revenge against all the men that caused his brothers’ and father’s deaths, while at the same time doing the work for the Order of Assassins.
As to be expected, the book ends with Ezio defeating the Templar’s, even though it takes 27 years, and ends with the Prophet completely revealed.
I liked this book because it is based on a game (which I have played the prequel to), and coz it ended up being on the type of book I prefer, just a good action book, instead of a sci-fi book, which just makes it so much better.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read action books, and definitely anyone who has played either of the Assassin’s Creed games.
