Ever wanted to read the entire BIONICLE story in one place? Biological Chronicle is the entire thing – books, serials, podcasts, etc, all comics that contain story not covered elsewhere, and links to video content – all combined into a flowing narrative, with typos fixed, formatting made consistent, and minor continuity errors edited out.

This compilation is divided into 10 “Books,” or volumes, each containing roughly one year’s story. You can find details on what is in each book, along with direct links to each one, below.

Note that some books have a “Standard” version and a “Complete” version – the “Standard” versions are heavily recommended for most readers, especially new readers. The Complete versions are for those that want absolutely everything, no matter how much of a slog it might be to read through – you can find details on the extras they include below.
