What is Assassin’s Creed: Renaissance Audiobook?
Assassin’s Creed: Renaissance Audiobook is the thrilling novelization by Oliver based on the Assassin’s Creed series, published by Penguin Books. It is the novelized version of the game Assassin’s Creed II; however, rather than spanning a vast period of time, it is set only in the 15th century, with no mention of the game’s present-day events.
I’m a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed Audiobook series. I’ve played all of the games (1,2, Brotherhood, Revelations), and have really enjoyed playing them, so – naturally, I thought I’d give the novels a try. Now, I know video-game adaptations aren’t normally top quality literature, and Renaissance Audiobook certainly isn’t.
In fact, I listen not only Renaissance Audiobook sometime last year, but also Brotherhood Audiobook and The Secret Crusade Audiobook, all Assassin’s Creed Audiobook and all written by Oliver Bowden. And, seeing as I’m starting to re-play the video games, I thought that I’d give the audiobooks another try as well.
The plot of Assassin’s Creed: Renaissance Audiobook
I will seek vengeance upon those who betrayed my family. I am Ezio Auditore da Firenze. And like my father before me I am an Assassin…
Betrayed by the ruling families of Italy, a young man embarks upon an epic quest for vengeance. To eradicate corruption and restore his family’s honor, he will learn the art of the Assassin.
Along the way, Ezio will call upon the wisdom of such great minds as Leonardo da Vinci and Niccolò Machiavelli – knowing that survival is bound to the skills by which he must live.
To his allies, he will become a force for change – fighting for freedom and justice. To his enemies, he will become a threat dedicated to the destruction of the tyrants abusing the people of Italy.
So begins an epic story of power, revenge and conspiracy.
TRUTH WILL BE WRITTEN IN BLOOD.
Fans of the game will love these Assasin’s Creed audiobooks.
I was genuinely surprised by how much I liked this audiobook. I bought it mostly because I am somewhat obsessed with the game, and I wanted more Ezio, now please! I expected that at best it would be bearable to read because I don’t tend to think too highly of novelizations of either movies or video games. But this was really good and fun.
So, all said and done, I believe that it’s fairly safe to say that whilst Renaissance Audiobook isn’t going to win any awards any time soon, it certainly is an enjoyable, ‘comfort’ listen that will give fans of the series a nice break from the standard fantasy fare. Even though the game outclasses in the novel in every possible way, the audiobook is still worth a try, just don’t go in with high expectations.
