As a long time assassins creed fan, I obviously had to read this book. It is a great addition if you have the played the game, but if you didn't play the game, it is very easy to follow.

It is only about Ezio and Altiar and has nothing to do with with Desmond, the game goes back and forth between all three.

I found the story very intruiging and unable to put the book down.I would recommend to anyone wanting to reading this, to read the two other books with Ezio first. (AC renassiance, and AC brotherhood)

The only negative is Ezio's story has concluded.

My first Assassin's Creed novel was Forsaken and perhaps reading that one first set the bar a little high. Oliver Bowden seemed comfortable and free in that environment and in a way he was, since Haytham Kenway was still somewhat of a mystery after the AC3 game proper. I acknowledge that because the events in Revelations were already played out in-game, the author had very little leeway to create something new. That said, there are still a few things that I found wanting in the book overall.

Even though Revelations takes place primarily in the sights and sounds of Istanbul, I found that the framework was surprisingly lacking. The book takes place in a location that, even today, sparks the imagination with culture and wonder. In the game, I felt as if Istanbul itself was a living, breathing character around Ezio, unique and all its own. The book, conversely, spent very little time on the setting, which surprised me. I was also surprised by the utter lack of new story or even narrative flow in this book. It felt almost mechanical at times. In my head, rather than picturing the events taking place in the book I was reading, I was picturing the author playing the game, pressing pause, and writing down what he'd just done on the screen. The effect is that events and dialogue feel choppy in a lot of places where central story should have flown easily. Because of the choppy narrative, Ezio suffers as a character too. Book Ezio never seems to have that certain charisma that the in-game character had in excess.

The bottom line is that the book was a good way for me to pass a long wait in an airport, but if you've played the game, this book will not add any story elements or intriguing new thoughts to the Assassin's Creed universe.

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 more than 40% of the book and, from where I was sitting, the most boring story I have ever read. It read like the author was watching someone play the game and writing what he saw. Not just the scenes, but I could envision the player's tutorial for the new weapons and moves because I was reading it. Reading "executed a Leap of Faith" takes all of the excitement out of the act for me.

I paid $10 for the Kindle version, which means I have to finish the book, so I kept reading. Act II was a lot of fun! This was the book I was hoping for, but the story was almost half over. The pacing was good, the action and scenery descriptive, and the dialog very true to the game's setup. It was simply too late.

Act III is the wrap-up of Ezio's career as an Assassin. I thought the story was going to end after each chapter, but it just kept dragging on. Ugh, they introduce the character for a potential sequel, as well they should, but it's like pulling teeth getting to that part.

Play the game, don't read the game. You'll get more out of it! This was a terribly arranged and often poorly written book.

It was incredible! Of course the author has to follow the game, so the story is pretty much the same, but it's very good for those who can't buy the game
