Specifically it's Another Side, Another Story to the game, from the viewpoint of Haytham Kenway, the father of the main Player Character, Ratonhnhaké;ton or Connor of IIInote . The book is presented in the form of a journal Haytham kept since childhood and which he irregularly updated throughout his life. The final part of the book has Connor completing the story with his own reflections on discovering his father's story.After the release of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Forsaken along with Assassin's Creed III covers the Myth Arc of the Kenway Family Saga, described by writer Darby McDevitt as, "the story of a family… a migration, a mixing of cultures, and a dashing of ideals…".Forsaken was very well recieved on its release and is the first of the series to recieve Approval Of God as being canonical to the Franchise.
