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.

These books were bought as a bundle for myself. I am a huge fan o the Assassin's Creed series, and am very interested in the books and video games! I have bought just about everything AC related from Amazon, and all products have been in brand new condition and arrived exactly when they said they would.

I only read a few pages of this prior to gifting it to her but it was good and I would not have minded reading the rest. I may in fact borrow it along with the others when she is done. I don't remember the condition of it on receipt since it was for Christmas.

The detail Oliver puts into the legend that is Ezio Auditore was put into great detail even as a man of his age. These books are always ALWAYS more deeper with the story of Ezio. But see here's the thing, i bought brotherhood too and the condition of it was great but when it came to this one it turned out to be kind of bad. It was like the shipment workers through it around like a ball. The covers were a little bent and the pages had dents which you could see between the covers. Though the writing was ok the outside was terrible. The 2 stars are for the condition of it when i got it.

Good story and theme, i found it a bit long winded and at first the plot was a bit obscure. But keep reading and it all gets to make sense! It helps to know your geography for that part of the world, or access to Google Earth is a great help!

This book had me from the word "go"! I found the characters credible, and enjoyed the incidental connection with history and historical figures. It lent the book credibility. It is well written and very enjoyable. There was nothing I didn't like!

My only criticism is that I am sad to see the end of Ezio Auditore! Well written squire!

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.
