Renaissance

Oliver Bowden

'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 Italian Renaissance: where culture and art were born alongside some of the most auspicious stories of corruption, greed and murder; where bitter blood feuds rage between warring families, vying for political and economic power.

Italian nobleman, Ezio Auditore di Firenze, must avenge the deaths of his father and brothers - slain at the hands of a rival faction. So begins an epic story, a young man's journey to become an instrument of death, a silent killer - a journey in which he must acquire the skills of the ancient Order of Assassins. Along the way, Ezio will call upon the wisdom of such great minds as Leonardo Da Vinci and Nicolo Machiavelli - knowing that survival is bound to the belief by which he lives.

Truth is Written in Blood

Based on the huge blockbuster computer game, Assassin's Creed: Renaissance is a fast-paced, intriguing, and beautifully crafted historical thriller.

The author is an acclaimed novelist and Renaissance historian.
