Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Assassin's Creed: Renaissance, a new novelisation based on one of the biggest gaming-media franchises in the world.
Read by the actor Gunnar Cauthery.
'I will seek Vengeance upon those who betrayed my family. I am Ezio Auditore di Firenze. I am an Assassin...'
The Year of Our Lord 1476 - the Renaissance: culture and art flourish alongside the bloodiest corruption and violence. Bitter blood-feuds rage between the warring political families of Italy.
Following the murder of his father and brothers, Ezio Auditore di Firenze is entrusted with an ancient Codex, the key to a conspiracy that goes back to the centuries-old conflict between the shadowy Templar Knights and the elite Order of Assassins.
Ezio must avenge the deaths of his kinsmen and in doing so fulfil his destiny, and live by the laws of the Assassin's Creed.
Truth is written in blood.
Assassin's Creed: Renaissance is based on the phenomenally successful gaming series. Fans of the game will love these stories. Other titles in the series include Assassin's Creed: Forsaken, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin's Creed: The Secret Crusade, and Assassin's Creed: Revelations.
Oliver Bowden is the pen-name of an acclaimed novelist.

very good and thrilling but I expected a more profound story. Go deeper into the story of the game.

Stumbles along blindly

Would you try another book from Oliver Bowden and Anton Gill and/or Gunnar Cauthery?

Yes, another book, to see if this was a one off poor writting performance and a later novel might be better.
I will look for another narrator though.

Would you be willing to try another one of Gunnar Cauthery’s performances?

Possibly.
I do not like to single out one individual for a poor performance, especially considering the novel he had to deal with was poor to begin with. But the main concern was the different voices used, while i commend him on managing so many different characters, these sounded like the most Scottish Venetian's I have ever heard.
The various accents realy did not suit the setting.

Any additional comments?

Id use a spare credit for another of these novels and not pay in the future and I urge you to do the same. Story is not well written, very repeditive and lots of italian thrown in for no good reason. Narrator also uses accents that do not compliment the books setting and period, which adds to preventing the reader from being immersed in the story.

Great fun!

What made the experience of listening to Assassin's Creed the most enjoyable?

The storyline wasnt too serious, having never played the games it was fun to listen to and mildly amusing.

What did you like best about this story?

What could be told in 12hrs was told in 12hrs not 21hrs, the book was explanatory but to the point, no lengthy explainations which werent required.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen to this in one sitting, (a very long car journey)

Any additional comments?

A nice easy listen (with the exception of the volume level changing) narrator was clear and well pronounced with good vocal range.

Good Narrator, Average Story.

it wasn't a bad story, but it wasn't a great one either.. It was almost like the author sat down and wrote as he watched the game being played. The narrator was very good though! Definitely made listening to the story a lot better. I'd give the story a 6.5/10.
