Publisher's Summary

Please note: This title contains explicit language

Assassin’s Creed: Gold is a stand-alone tale from the Assassin's Creed universe in which we meet Aliyah Khan, a card shark and hustler who’s been dealt a rough hand in life. Surviving through her smarts and street scams, Aliyah struggles to get by until she loses big time to a mysterious older man, Gavin Banks. Her only option to repay Banks is to become an Assassin. During her training, Banks tells Aliyah of the centuries-old battle between the Assassins and Templars, imploring her to help him decode a secret message inscribed on an illegal form of currency during the Great Recoinage of 1696.   

With a cast of characters beloved the world over by fans of the franchise, Assassin’s Creed: Gold tells a gripping tale of imminent economic collapse, featuring appearances from Warden of the Royal Mint, Isaac Newton, con artist and counterfeiter William Chaloner, blind assassin Omar Khaled and assassin trainer Rose Galloway. Equal parts adrenaline-fueled and thought-provoking, Assassin’s Creed: Gold draws a compelling parallel with the financial chaos of Isaac Newton’s 17th-century Britain and the economic uncertainty of our more recent history.  

Audible’s new full-cast drama will realise the clash of the Assassins and Templars as a gripping audio thriller with lead performances from Riz Ahmed (Emmy winner, Golden Globe nominee, The Night Of, Rogue One, Four Lions), Anthony Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Merlin, Little Britain), Danny Wallace (BAFTA Games Award winner, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, Assassin’s Creed III) and Tamara Lawrance (Corvidae, On Chesil Beach).  

Performed by: Riz Ahmed, Laura Aikman, Rachel Atkins, Brian Bowles, Andrew Branch, John Chancer, Lily Donovan, Rupert Fairley, Ray Fearon, Owen Findlay, Jason Forbes, Nicholas Goh, Anthony Head, David John, Jim Johnson, Will Kelly, Tamara Lawrance, John Last, Gemma Lawrence, Nicholas le Prevost, Simon Lipson, Hayward Morse, Paul Panting, Laila Payne, Nigel Pilkington, Joseph Radcliffe, David Rintoul, Anne Rosenfeld, Jennifer Saayeng, Gyuri Sarossy, Danny Wallace and Daniel Weyman.

Excellent

This was really unusual. Not a normal read more like listening to a stage play. I really like the format. The story was involving, and the cast was fantastic!

enjoyable

loved it, as a fan of the games I can attest by saying it's not really like them at all, but that's not a bad thing. the characters are well voiced and are pretty intriguing (Omar is definitely a favourite for me and hopefully he might get introduced in the games one day) the production did a good job with sound effects as well.

overall, an enjoyable listening experience, I just wish it was a bit longer.

Incredibly well made and uniquely suited to the series

This is the first time I’ve ever been able to maintain my attention with an audiobook. The decision to have Omar be blind makes the story work perfectly in universe and allows us to experience the reality of what eagle vision really does for the user. You can hear the minute details of the foley artists work and can feel how the world develops around Omar’s senses.

The story is a new example of what made the original assassins creed games work so well. A historically grounded story with the intertwining of the assassins story. Less focus on the isu and more on how the universes history is impacted by the millennia long feud.

The voice acting is amazing and pushes the story forward by allowing for emotions to show and relationships to be understood implicitly.

Bit of a let down

The voice acting is excellent as well as the story about Omar and Issac Newton but the writing for the female character is terrible. She is un-relatable as a protagonist and she swears worst than a trucker.

Would not recommend this story as a result, the games are by far superior content.

An excellent book

This is one of the best books I have listed to the use of sound effects were superb and it had an enthralling story with plot twists and you never knew what was coming next.

First foray into audiobooks

This was amazing. I was hooked and convinced me to get the subscription of Audible. Highly recommended for a fan of Assassin's Creed series. It heaps better than anything Hollywood has been able to do with the IP.

A fast paced theatrical tale.

A fast paced theatrical tale.
As someone who isn’t familiar with the game or books it was easy to settle into a new world.
Great portrayals of different characters.

Surprise package

I didn’t read the blurb so was pleasantly surprised to recognise a couple of the voices which seemed to fit so well with the characters. The whole premise was entertaining from the start after the initial jolt of ‘what’s going on?’

marvellous ‘radio play’

I was engrossed by story and especially by performances and sound effects! Just the right amount of unexpected and unexplained sci/fi. And i usually enjoy hard sci-fi but it simply didn’t matter with this excellent all round plot.

Enjoyed the story.

As a fan of Assassins creed franchise this was a good story to add to the already existing law and builds upon a part of history I would love to see fleshed out more.
Enjoyable story, good characters.
