This is a sequel to Assassin's Creed: Renaissance. Ezio, the master assassin, seeks to avenge the death of his uncle. Unbeknownst to him this will pit him against the Knights Templar.
Watch before reading. Techno kitty demands it!
Despite the amazing trailer, Brotherhood is my least favourite game from the Assassin’s Creed franchise. This is mainly because the events are kind of boring and the villain, even though venomous and ruthless, needs lots of improving.
Imagine if the game is neutral how the book will be.
Yep, you got it!
But the positive thing is the fact that Oliver Bowden improved the story’s consistency (and his writing, for that matter). The events were blending together rather nicely, the characters seemed better contoured and Ezio was cooler than ever (or something close to that). All these aspects make Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood a decent read.
Oh, I just need to add that another tiny aspect. If you’re not a fan of the game you should probably avoid reading this book (and/or series). You won’t get sh*t.
Favourite quote (at least one of them)
[…] he went back to the wounded man, nearly slipping on the blood in which the slave trader was slithering. Bending down, Ezio cut one of the man’s hamstrings, keeping a hand over his mouth to stop him from howling. That should slow him up. For good. He pressed his mouth close to the man’s ear. “If you survive,” he said, “and get back to that pox-ridden louse you call your master, tell him all this was done with the compliments of Ezio Auditore. If not—requiescat in pace.”
