Unlike previous books which were the game in written form this one is half and half. Told through a series of personal journal entries,reflections and traditional prose it tells the story of Haytham Kenway from his early life upto when we meet him within the Assassins Creed III game and through the game to it's conclusion.
The book is as with all of Oliver Bowden's previous books well written, the story is entertaining and is a nice accompanyment to the game.
If you're a fan of the game series then this is definetely worthing putting on the shelf
Read after playing Assassin's Creed 3
My grandchildren have lived this series, as has my 'gamer' son (not his children).
I have to recommend any enquiring mind (that has time to) explore this series x
3 of the 6 I have read certainly seem of the same hand, whilst another 3 offer perspectives that are entirely challenging, yet 'real'?!.
There are 3 definite 'questions' in this novel that marred it's due joy; proof reader faults or software glitches?!
Either/or are significant faults and sadly cause me to wonder at my 'support'?!
This could be the narrative that enables many to embrace 'others' ideals without prejudice OR . . . affirm else.
If this is truly one author; All hail to you x Such wealth of acceptance and delivery has to be exhausting, but you need to kick your publishing house in the butt as they are letting you down!
For me, Haytham was by far the most intriguing character in Assassins' Creed 3. Until then, it had all seemed a bit black and white, with evil Templars and good Assassins, then suddenly, there's this mysterious and sympathetic Templar who frees slaves, allies with Native Americans and stops the worst excesses of his colleagues. Plus, he's posh, English. well-dressed and from the eighteenth century - four big ticks in my book.
So firstly, I think the author made an inspired choice in focussing on Haytham rather than Connor, the games official hero. He really fills out the character with an intriguing personality and inspired back story. The writing and characterisation is pretty good throughout, and much better than I was expecting. It's told through Haytham's diary, and it mimics the style of eighteenth century diary writing quite effectively. While I'm sure this will be read almost universally by fans of the games, it could almost stand on its own merits as a general historical fantasy.
The book is at its best when the author is given free rein to create his own plot within the AC universe. I particularly loved the scenes in which Haytham is a young child in London in the 1730s, living with his very rich and respectable father, who fans will recognise as Edward Kenway, the pirate hero of the fourth game.Read more ›
