Assassins Creed Books

I have just started to read the Assassins Creed books of Oliver Bowden and so far i am loving them. The way they are written is amazing but the thing that i dont like is that they dont tell the story of the present day about Desmond and things like that, because personally i found a bit hard to understand what was going in the present day in the game. What do you guys think? :)

    I've read The Secret Crusade and Forsaken. Both are AMAZING novels that add so much to the lore. Secret Crusade fills all the gaps of Altair's story from the games and is my favorite. Forsaken is 70% the story of Haytham before the events of AC3 and made me appreciate his character on a whole new level than the game - to the point where he's become one of my favorite characters in the AC universe. I am currently reading Black Flag and this novel also starts way before the story of the game giving a more complete look at Edward Kenway's origins and his motivations. In my opinion, no AC fan should miss these books because they enrich the experience of the games so much. Character development is difficult to do in the games where you have to keep the cutscenes brief, but in these novels, they're like one giant cutscene which really puts you in the mind of the characters like the games couldn't.

      I strongly agree, this helps you understand the character more and get to know the Assassin better. I especially love Altairs story as in Revelations, the game, they didnt really go into detail about Altairs family but in the book the author explains it in a huge amount of detail.

    I have read at least 3 of the books and I just say the writing is really evocative and you can picture yourself in that time period

    I still need to read the books! And, maybe they'll make a present day book reflecting on everything that has happened to what happened after Desmond, and maybe a new present day protagonist. At least, that's what I hope will happen.
