The Master Assassin doesn't disappoint,
This review is from: Assassin's Creed: The Secret Crusade (Paperback)
I am without any doubt a huge fan of the Assassin Creed franchise and when I saw that this book had become available I instantly bought it. I can honestly say I was greatly impressed. Oliver Bowden has stayed true to the game and, dare I say it, almost word for word with the characters, doesn't try to over dramatise the story by using his own thoughts on it but gives it exactly like the game which for me was a pleasure.
The story begins with a little insight into Altair's early days, how he became part of the Assassin Order and then goes through the story of what happened in the actual game. It then explains what happened to Altair afterwards, and gives a lot of insight into what he thought of the Order, the Brotherhood and the all important Piece of Eden. The book ends in real appropriate fashion, leaving you wanting more but also giving you a sense of fufilment.
I must admit I was worried that if I read it after what I already knew through the game it would ruin anything afterwards as there will be a new one coming out in November which should explain a lot more about Altair but rest assured it only increased my curiosity and gave hardly anything away.
All in all it was a very interesting read, easy to understand and hard to put down.
If you are a fan in Assassins Creed this is a must read to find out about the Master Assassin and how things came to be. I highly recommend it.
