Assassin's Creed Renaissance

Assassin's Creed, #1

Assassin’s Creed: Renaissance by Oliver Bowden is a novelized version of the video game Assassin’s Creed II. Unlike the game, the book is set only in the fifteenth century. A teenager in Italy trains to become an assassin after the murder of his family. On a quest for vengeance against a group of assassins and the Knights Templar, he discovers a secret regarding the Codex. His discovery will change his views of not only the world, but also of the origin and future of the human race.
 
I rate this one 3.75, as it has an interesting premise and a surprise twist at the end. I hope there will be a sequel!
