The Secret Crusade

Oliver Bowden

The new novelization based on the bestselling games franchise Assassin's Creed - telling the untold tale behind the origins of the Assassin's Creed story.
Master Assassin Altair is revered throughout the Holy Land. Yet in spite of his fearsome reputation, Altair has a deadly flaw - an arrogance that has cost him dearly. Under the orders of leader Al Mualim, Altair embarks on a formidable mission of redemption - a mission that will take him from Jerusalem to Damascus and Acre. To show his commitment to the brotherhood, Altair must defeat nine mysterious enemies, each more powerful than the other, including the mighty Templar leader, Robert de Sable. Altair is soon drawn into this most secret war - the war of the Assassins and the Templars - and into a conspiracy that is as deadly as it is mystifying. In a world where nothing is as it seems, who can Altair really trust?
