"Before Assassin's Creed Origins, there was an Oath."
So, apparently, there's a new Assassin's Creed game, 'Origins' and some amazing artwork and CGI to go with it. I haven't played the game, but I have read the book and here are some details:
Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Desert Oath by Oliver Bowden, read by John Banks.
"Travel further back in time than ever before . . . Discover an ancient Egypt on the brink of collapse, and meet the characters in the official prequel to the latest instalment of the bestselling Assassin's Creed video game series."
Egypt, 70BC, a merciless killer stalks the land. His mission: to find and destroy the last members of an ancient order, the Medjay - to eradicate the bloodline.
In peaceful Siwa, the town's protector abruptly departs, leaving his teenage son, Bayek, with questions about his own future and a sense of purpose he knows he must fulfill. Bayek sets off in search of answers, his journey taking him along the Nile and through an Egypt in turmoil, facing the dangers and the mysteries of the Medjay's path.

It's an honour to have been asked to record this second Assassin's Creed book after last year's film tie-in adaptation and hopefully, there'll be more to come - they are great fun!
