What to expect

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Assassin’s Creed: The Official Film Tie-In by Christie Golden, read by John Banks.

The official film tie-in to the Assassin’s Creed motion picture starring Michael Fassbender.

We work in the dark to serve the light. We are assassins.

Through a revolutionary technology that unlocks his genetic memories, Callum Lynch experiences the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. Callum discovers he is descended from a mysterious secret society, the Assassins, and amasses incredible knowledge and skills to take on the oppressive and powerful Templar organization in the present day.

Critics Review

  • A film that blends a cool sci-fi concept (technology that allows users to relive their ancestor’s memories) with historical adventure

    Screenrant
  • This is definitely Assassin’s Creed with all the fast paced free-running and close combat you’d want. It might be a time period we’ve never seen in the games but plenty of 360 viewpoints, eagles and free running action to make us feel at home in the Spanish Inquisition

    Games Radar
  • This isn’t Star Wars, there isn’t a dark side and light side. It’s a grey world where both sides have to bend their beliefs at certain times. Templars can become good and Assassin’s can turn

    Michael Fassbender
  • I wanted it to be an unbelievable ride. Our story is an origin story, a man in the present day discovering he’s an Assassin. It’s a very rich world, the history beautifully recreated

    Justin Kurzel, director of Assassin's Creed
  • Start getting your hopes up. The trailer is simply gorgeous

    Forbes
  • The video game movie that might just induce glorious amnesia for those struggling to wipe clean memories of ‘Prince of Persia’, ‘Hitman’ or ‘Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life’
