Assassin’s Creed: The Ankh of Isis Trilogy Review

Assassins Creed

Assassin’s Creed – The Ankh of Isis Trilogy is the collection of the three-volume graphic novel telling the story of Desmond Miles’s abduction by Abstergo and his fight against the Templars. The three books are Assassin’s Creed 1: Desmond, Assassin’s Creed 2: Aquilus, and Assassin’s Creed 3: Accipiter.

I enjoyed the deeper look into other characters from the game, such as Clay and Lucy, and the plot was fast-paced and filled in holes from the series. It also featured plenty of strong female characters, which I appreciated.

The art is neither great nor terrible, although I didn’t really like the comic version of the characters’ faces. Everyone either looks slightly demented or vague, but the colors are lovely.

If you’re a fan of the AC series and want to learn a bit more about Desmond and other assassins, be sure to pick up this trilogy!

Plot

“Abstergo wants Desmond Miles and they’ll stop at nothing to get him – kidnapping and murdering without hesitation – but betrayal closer to home lands a far greater blow for the deadly Templars.

In a race against time, Desmond uses the Animus to delve into the lives of two Assassins from Roman times – the shadowy Aquilus and the barbarian Accipiter – in a desperate search for a weapon to destroy Abstergo.

Can their memories help Desmond discover this ancient artefact of unusual power? Who is the mysterious Jonathan Hawk? And who, if anyone, can Desmond trust?”
