(Hopefully Not) Lost in Translation




There is a fantasy series which caught my attention. Unfortunately, there's a slight problem....





My girlfriend, a lovely French woman (English speaking too!) from the North enjoys reading about as much as I do...perhaps even more so. We have similar tastes when it comes to reading, and we appreciate books themselves. She has read The Silmarillion. All of it. In French. In Grade 8. One of her favourite series is called Chevaliers d'Emeraude (or in English, The Knights of Emerald). It is a fantasy series written by French Quebec author, Anne Robillard. The thing is, I'm not quite fluent in French yet...and there's no English translated versions of the books published (yet.). I would love to get them in English, even if it's an ebook that someone else has translated 'unofficially'. [Sorry, Anne! I want to read your books but they don't exist in m language! Once they are released in English, as a book or ebook, I will get them 'properly'.] If anyone knows where I can obtain them in English, or is willing to translate all twelve, I would greatly appreciate it! Now there's a gift idea...If you are fluent in French and like fantasy, I suggest giving them a try. I haven't read them yet, but the point of this post is that I want to.

"The English version of The Knights of Emerald will be available as soon as an agreement is reached with an English publisher."

Despite the series not 'existing' in English, part of the official site has English. I've copied and pasted some of what exists already on the site here, for readability purposes. Below are the book titles (in English), Oath, Chivalry Code, and the list of characters.

Series author, Anne Robillard. Sometimes referred to as 'the French Tolkien'



THE BOOKS

Book 1 - Fire in the Sky

Upon learning that Amecareth is preparing to invade the continent once again, the King of Emerald, in an effort to protect all of the Kingdoms of Enkidiev, revives an ancient knighthood. Chosen for their special gifts and endowed with mystical powers, six men and one woman become the new Knights of Emerald.

Their training now completed, these magical soldiers are ready for battle when Queen Fan arrives at the castle requesting an audience with Emerald the First. Pressed for time, she leaves in his care her two-year old daughter Kira, fully aware of the part she will be playing in the future of mankind. Wellan, the undisputed leader of the knights, falls in love with the beautiful queen. But the Kingdom of Shola is the first to fall and everyone is slaughtered, including Fan.
Heartbroken, Wellan will nonetheless have to come up with a plan to defend Enkidiev and repel the forces of evil...


Book 2 - Dragons of the Dark Emperor

Now nine years of age, the only thing Kira wants is to become a squire and learn to fight under the tutelage of a full-fledged knight so she can avenge the death of her parents to the hands of the Dark Emperor. But in order to protect her from the Lord of the Insect People, Wellan and Magician Elund turn her down. Deeply hurt, Kira decides to take her fate into her own hands. She conjures up the spirit of a Knight of Emerald who died hundreds of years ago and begs him to teach her how to use her weapons.

Unable to force his way into the continent by the coast, Amecareth finds a new way to introduce his dragons into the human territories and the Knights of Emerald with their new squires are forced to hunt down the monsters. At the same time, the Dark Lord sends his sorcerer to attack the soldiers and bring his daughter back to him.


Book 3 - Kingdom of Shodows

Now fifteen years of age and experiencing the first impulses of adolescence, Kira achieves her most cherished dream and becomes a Squire of Emerald. From then on, the purple princess goes on missions with the knights, marvelling at the immensity of Enkidiev.
The light bearer – the central character of the prophecy – is finally born on the continent and the Immortals must expend a lot of effort to protect him from the Dark Emperor.
Meanwhile, Wellan and his valiant knights rush to the aid of the hybrids of the Kingdom of the Shadows where they fall into a trap and are confronted with an enemy they never suspected.


Book 4 - A Rebellious Princess

Now nineteen years of age, Kira is finally knighted. She marries Sage of Emerald, unaware that he is possessed by the spirit of the renegade Knight Onyx. When the latter decides to take his vengeance on Abnar, Wellan and the Knights of Emerald must intervene so he will not destroy their immortal ally. Witnessing the duel, the knights are astounded by the powers that Abnar had bestowed upon these ancients soldiers.
When he becomes his old self again, Sage realizes that he has no recollection of the last four years of his life. Patiently, Kira teaches him all he has to know. In order to remain a knight, the young warrior will have to submit once more to Elund’s trials, but will he succeed?
During the celebrations in honour of Parandar, the greatest of all gods, an agonizing man rides into the courtyard of the Castle of Emerald and informs the knights that unknown creatures are decimating the coast. The valiant soldiers immediately rush to the rescue of the villagers. What trap has Amecareth set for them this time?


Book 5 - Reptile Island

Letting their courage and their fairness be their only guides, the Knights of Emerald rush to the aid of the women and young girls abducted in the Kingdom of Cristal by lizards-like creatures and sailed away to a remote island.
Wellan only takes with him a few of his men, filling the others with dismay, since they will have to stay behind in Zenor. The chosen Knights of Emerald embark on this perilous mission with the Crystal Magician who has a few surprises in store for them.
Meanwhile, in the badly damaged Castle of Zenor, Dempsey has charge of the younger knights and squires, unaware that he will have to face another sorcerer of the Dark Emperor, even more cruel than Asbeth.
Wellan having forbidden his soldiers to communicate with him while he is infiltrating the island of the reptiles, Dempsey and his brothers-in-arms will have to handle this new enemy by themselves…


Book 6 - The Chronicles of Onyx

With the help of Kira, Wellan discovers the chronicles written by the renegade knight Onyx, in which he learns the fate that awaits his own soldiers if the Dark Emperor decides to adopt the same military strategy that he used in the past. Quite distraught, Wellan tries to obtain from the Crystal Magician greater magical powers for himself and his men.
Meanwhile, Asbeth launches a new attack on Enkidiev and the Knights of Emerald must once more rush to the aid of the inhabitants of the coast. During the rescue operation, Wellan finally has the opportunity to sort things out with the King of the Elves. It is also in the beautiful forests of the Elves that the gods present an invaluable gift to him.
Upon his return to the Castle of Emerald, Wellan is confronted with a diplomatic dispute. Will he have the savoir-faire required to solve this delicate problem?
Although armed with the information he found in the writings of the ancients Knights of Emerald, Wellan does not suspect that the enemy is much closer than he thinks…

Book 7 - The Abduction

A tragic loss triggers a series of unexpected events at the Castle of Emerald. Wellan inherits a curious piece of jewellery endowed with a fascinating magical power. But, at the same time, he discovers that the renegade knight Onyx has once again taken command of another human body… Will Wellan have to face him again?
The eldest of his brothers-in-arms having been provided with magical wrist bands, Wellan grants each of them a group of younger Knights and sends them to patrol the coast. A wise decision since Asbeth is about to strike once again.
Despite all the efforts expended by the Knights of Emerald and Kira’s extraordinary faculties, the insect soldiers manage to abduct a warrior, with a view to use him to destroy mankind.


Book 8 - Fallen Gods

Faced with the imposing task of assigning the squires to their new masters, Wellan soon realizes that there aren’t enough knights and that many of them are already training a squire. In order to give him a hand, Jenifael, Lassa and Liam decide to use an old spell that will greatly disrupt the life of the inhabitants of the castle.
Under pretext of seeing his village once again, Onyx agrees to take Sutton and his family to the land of their ancestors. But the renegade knight’s true purpose is to obtain a powerful weapon that the goddess Cinn has hidden in the most southern part of the kingdom. However, will he be strong enough to handle it?
The knights who have barely recovered from the unrest caused by the young culprits at the castle are attacked by an enemy coming from the sky. They are not without knowing that they are poorly equipped to defend themselves against fallen gods.
At the same time, troops lead by Asbeth make their way to the Castle of Emerald...


Book 9 - Danalieth's Legacy

The imperial troops land on the coast of Enkidiev in large numbers, forcing Wellan to divide his knights to slow down the invaders. While they are defending the Kingdom of the Elves, the Knights of Emerald capture a strange blue creature, unaware of its true purpose.
The new King of Emerald offers to provide Wellan with one of the weapons that Danalieth has created to help the humans defend themselves. Wellan finds it very hard not to accept this offer, since he has been looking for a way to increase his powers since the beginning of the invasion by the insect soldiers.
Wishing to help his father, Dylan learns a new way to locate ripples in the energy field of Enkidiev. However, as he attempts to use this new technique for the first time, he faces the resistance of a young woman who will change his destiny.
Against all odds, Elund’s prophecy regarding the return of a great hero is finally accomplished. But will this noble warrior arrive in time?


Book 10 - Retaliation

Having reached the end of their incubation period, the insect larvas buried in the ground all over Enkidiev are about to wake. After several years of a well-deserved truce, the Knights of Emerald prepare to face this new scourge. Determined to take revenge on Parandar, the fallen god Akuretari takes advantage of this diversion to hunt down the humans who are in control of Danalieth’s supernatural weapons. He will learn to his own cost that they are very resilient.
When tragedy strikes the Kingdom of Diamond, King Onyx finally shows his true colours, at the same time sowing doubt in the mind of the Knights. Despite everything, his loyal friend Hadrian of Silver will not give up hope to make him listen to reason.
Frustrated by the incessant setbacks of his sorcerer, the Dark Emperor decides to launch his own offensive. His deadly intervention will finally set the prophecy in motion. But at the same time, it will deprive Lassa of his only shield…


Book 11 - Celestical Justice

Imprisoned in the past, Kira is desperately searching for a way to get home. The ancient Enkievs are more than willing to help her, although they possess limited magical powers.
Despite his wounds and the inefficiency of his new winged servant, Akuretari remains a formidable enemy. Taking advantage of the chaos brewing on the continent, he triggers off terrible cataclysms. Only a great sacrifice from one of the Knights will finally put an end to the fallen god’s vengeance.
The inhabitants of Enkidiev face a new menace when the Dark Emperor chooses this exact moment to give the coup de grâce to the Knights of Emerald and their allies. He is far from suspecting that the pure heart of a child and the courage of an Elf will thwart his invasion plans.

Book 12 - Irianeth

Pressed by the enemy, Onyx quickly dubs the Squires, judging that they are more than able to fend from themselves. But the loss of their great commander continues to demoralize the Knights. Distraught with grief, one of them even deserts their ranks.
Despite the good car he is receiving from the spiders, Liam is wasting away as he realizes that he will never see his family and his friends again. But they have not forgotten him and they will do everything in their power to get to him.
Finally accepting her fate, the rebellious princess rushes to the aid of the light bearer and the Knights of Emerald who are suffering the repeated attacks of the Dark Emperor. However, Asbeth as set a trap for her…
The last battle finally takes place on Irianeth. But who will make it alive in the end?

The Oath of Emerald

You have now stepped away from the path of doubt and you are walking on an enlightened path. You have become a Knight of Emerald and your name is no longer _______________________, but the Knight ________________ of Emerald. Always keep your body and your mind free from impurities. Do not harbour negative thoughts in your heart. Instead, make sure that your love for Enkidiev and its inhabitants continues to grow. Do not seek knowledge only in books, but also in everything that surrounds you. Learn to feel the energy in every living thing. Share what you know with others who are also seeking mystical knowledge, but never reveal any part of it to those who have harmful intentions. Beware of those who seek to dominate or manipulate you. Be watchful of any person who tries to lead you away from your path for his or her own glory or personal profit. Never make fun of others, for you never know who might outshine you in wisdom or strength. Always make sure that your actions are honourable, for the help you offer will be returned to you a hundredfold. Honour all creatures that breathe, never destroy life unless your own life is in danger. Now repeat after me: I commit myself to follow in all honesty the rules of the Emerald Code and, with all the fervour and the courage that a true Knight possesses, I commit myself to ensure peace and justice on this continent and on every other territories undiscovered at this time. I also commit myself to control my temper, my fears and my eagerness in all circumstances and to call upon the counsel of the gods when I have to make a decision or help others. ___________________ , you are now a Knight of Emerald. May the gods be with you.
