The Official Synopsis:
I will journey to the black heart of a corrupt empire to root out my foes. But Rome wasn’t built in a day and it won’t be restored by a lone assassin. I am Ezio Auditore da Firenze. This is my Brotherhood…
Rome, once mighty, lies in ruins. The city swarms with suffering and degradation, her citizens living in the shadow of the ruthless Borgia family. Only one man can free the people from the Borgia tyranny- Ezio Auditore, the Master Assassin.
Ezio’s quest will test him to his limits. Cesare Borgia, a man more villainous and dangerous than his father, the Pope, will not rest until he has conquered Italy. And in such treacherous times, conspiracy is everywhere, even within the ranks of the Brotherhood itself.
My Two Cents:
Book Two picks up from the previous edition and takes the story to the next level. It is a smooth, engaging and a fabulous journey that continues the story of the Master Assassin Ezio!
The character development and the storyline is very strong and it keeps one glued. Ezio takes up the challenge that he has been thrust into, to take on veteran villains who had plotted the downfall of not only his family but also the Brotherhood.
His life is not so simple as he has to take on multilple challenges as well as face treacherous fellow assassins across Italy to finally come closer to the overall Assassin cause!
I really love this series and the book two was an engrossing read. For all those who have played the game, the book is a must read!
