Altaïr embarks on a formidable mission - one that takes him throughout the Holy Land and shows him the true meaning of the Assassin's Creed. To demonstrate his commitment, Altaïr must defeat nine deadly enemies, including Templar leader Robert de Sablé. Here, for the first time, Niccolò Polo, father of Marco, shares Altaïr's remarkable story: his ongoing battle with the Templar conspiracy; a family life that is as tragic as it is shocking; the betrayal of an old friend; and a journey that will ultimately change the course of history.

This is a well read book based off a game. I would recommend it to you as I will recommend it to my friends, the narrative feels like an assassin would have read it to you & the story has your interest peaked.
Say something about yourself!
The beginning of this book really got my hopes up, starting with a young Altair, much younger than he is in the game series and it added a real touch of flavor to the story. Then the plot moved back into the familiar paths of the game. I stuck it out, hoping for it to diverge again but when it became obvious that it wasn't going to, I stopped listening. I feel a book like this should either be a direct translation (like the first two books) so that I can enjoy the story of a game I haven't played in a long while or it should add an entire understanding to the character that couldn't have been explored in its original medium (game).
if its uber popular, than i'm probly gonna read it. yeah, i'm that guy! sorry. unless its stephen king. DARK TOWER baby!!!
the book goes into the history of the Assassins Creed story. tells all about Altair, atleast for the most part. i didn't care to hear of how disgraced he was but it was necesary.
yes, i've recomended all 3 of the first 4 books. only 3 because thats all i've got for now.
he could use more enthusiasm.. not exactly monotone, but very close to it.
i plan on it..
