Niccol˛ Polo, father of Marco, will finally reveal the story he has kept secret all his life - the story of Alta´r, one of the brotherhood's most extraordinary Assassins. Alta´r embarks on a formidable mission - one that takes him throughout the Holy Land and shows him the true meaning of the Assassin's Creed. To demonstrate his commitment, Alta´r must defeat nine deadly enemies, including Templar leader, Robert de Sable. Alta´r's life story is told here for the first time: a journey that will change the course of history; his ongoing battle with the Templar conspiracy; a family life that is as tragic as it is shocking; and the ultimate betrayal of an old friend.
