Hello everyone!

And with this week's post, "The Nameless City" draws to an end. There were XANA, secret agents, countless mysteries to solve, a thrilling excursion to another country, and a very interesting look at the past lives of Waldo and Aelita Schaeffer - and the adventure just keeps on getting better!

The file is in PDF format, finished off by the "Chronicle of a translation" team. This week, discover chapter 16 of book II: "The Hermitage's Last Secret" as well as the epilogue.

[The Nameless City]
[Last version: Introduction, Prologue, 16 chapters & Epilogue]
Translated by Rhys Davies, A_QueenOfFairys and Kelsey

For those who've never held one of the Chronicles in their hands, we can assure you that the following steps have been taken to make sure that our final product looks as much like the real thing as possible:

- A layout that's almost identical to that in the original novels.
- Use of fonts in the original novels.
- The presence of coloured illustrations in high quality that have been adapted into English.
- The presence of icons at the start of every chapter, scanned from the Italian versions and retouched for an optimal rendering.

Finally, we remind you of the section of the site that's completely dedicated to the Chronicles. You can notably find there a gallery containing images from the first two books and which has been updated with illustrations translated into English.
Also, our French colleagues are of course working on translating book 4 at the same time, available on the French version of this news post. Follow Jim!

Now that the book is finished, we have also translated its page on the site, which summarises the events that took place.

To conclude, for those who haven't already hopped on the bandwagon:

[Book 1] - The Underground Castle

Thanks for sticking with us, we hope you've enjoyed book 2 of the Code Lyoko Chronicles!

Onwards to book 3: "The Return of the Phoenix"!
Until next Monday on!
