Ok, ok, I know it's bad to flood the forum with stupid requests like this but I feel like I'm going desperate jumping out of my pants wanting to read the novel.
The problem is that I can't find the proper place to actually buy the *.pdf or any other electronic format version of the novel. Buying a paperback book on Amazon from my country is not an option, 'cause I'll get it in half a year at best. Buying Kindle version also falls away, cause I don't have a Kindle :confused:
I don't care if I get banned for this, but mods please delete or close the topc after I've actually gotten a clear answer: where can I buy *any electronic version of the book* on the net? I DO NOT want to download it via torrents or steal it elsewhere.
Sorry again. I'm already leaving :nonchalance:

Don't apologise, Also it's on google play books if you dont have an itunes account or something.

I hope you enjoy it, definetely the best AC novel so far.

However it may not be what you expect, and make sure to play the game first!!!!

Thank you for answers!
I played the game 2 times now, from the very beginning to the end first in Russian then in English. Idk what possessed me to play in Russian for the first time. Perhaps an adorable dubbing of AC: Revelations, but it was spiritless in AC3 for both Connor and Haytham -_- It's wasn't bad at all, it was just... empty. Haytham's original last words, his tone and look made me have tears in my eyes, instantly uncurtaining what he truly thought and felt for a short few moments. That didn't happen when I played in Russian.
I've also read the excerpts I managed to find on the net, and that made me want to read the whole story even more. Haytham is one of AC's best characters so far, a unique cross between assassin's skills and templar's conviction, a man's feelings and a leader's goal. I think I'll buy the novel in the nearest time =) Thanx!

It's great to see what was going through Haytham's head at some points throughout Connor's story, and the book has some great twists and turns. Bowden has really saved his reputation this time.

This book was very good. I wish at least Connor's parts in this book actually were in the game. Like his prologue and epilogue.

The book was nice, though I was dissapointed that it readded the game parts like when he recruited his order, but oh well.
Also, it made no mention of the Boston massacre which I though was odd and what about the raid on the Assassins? Seems to be a rather big part to be left out, unless Charles did it on his own.




(spoiler)

Still it was interesting to know that towards the end, Haytham cared very little of the Order at that point. Who can blame him. Although why he went back to lead the Order was weird considering what happened.

I think I might pick up this one. I only read Renaissance and thought it was okay. Not really great though.
But I really like Haytham and want to learn more about his earlier life, so...

Yeah it's worth picking up. I just got it and I'm still towards the beginning and it's pretty interesting. I'm glad I'm got it.

I replayed the game after finishing the novel and found myself not wanting to kill Haytham.

I already hate the fact that I had to kill him... my favourite characters REALLY love to die, don't they? :/

Maybe I'll start to like Connor more... I've read some snippets, and my heart hurts now ;__;

I finished reading it yesterday, but can someone explain why it is titled "Forsaken"? To Forsake means to abandon, so because Haytham abandons... the Templars/Connor?

Or his heritage?

I did feel that he had somewhat abandonned on the Templars, Lee made it clear that he wasn't as into it as before. And Haytham himself mentionned how little joy he felt at making a meeting with his companions.
In a way, I also felt that due to all the happenings in his life, he had given up on life itself and had no real ambition after saving his sister.
After meeting his son, I think his curiosity on how his life might have been gived him a bit of a drive, that human side of him that he had cast came back. But promptly went away when his Templar ideals and his past experience took over and pushed Connor away.

The one thing I wonder is who the heck lead the attack on the Assassins, the novel made 0 mention of it which makes me think that Haytham wasn't even involved in it (considering his feelings by then) and that it might have been Lee did it.
