5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Fantasy Novel Aug. 8 2003
I made this my summer book a couple years ago, i think i was 13 or 14. I had picked it up at chapters one day when my dad had taken me on a big book-spree (yes, im insanely in love with books) anyway, on our way out i spotted it in a bargain box and i instantly had to have it. Even though it was a beautiful hardcover, I got it for little more than 6 bucks. I bought it straight away. i started reading it that night and was done about 2 weeks later. The characters are amazingly real to me, and the setting was so well thought out that i was actually convinced a few times that it was real! i really loved that book, and have read it once more after that summer. If you like fantasy novels, I really do suggest this one because it has everything you could ever ask for; romance, fighting, quests, arguments, elves, humans, knights, princesses, kings, deception etc. etc. I could go on, but im not going to take up your time since your going to buy the book now instead of listening to me ramble on about how AWESOME it was **winks** go, buy, now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great trilogy on the Renshai! Feb. 7 2000
This trilogy holds itself against the original. The author builds on the characters she created in the first trilogy and takes them to levels of conflict that she could not have set up otherwise.
Good and evil? Let's try shades of both...her characters this time are young...full of life and of themselves. They learn about violence, love, and the true evil that normal men of power can accomplish...on top of that, they are forced to deal with a supernatural evil of unprecedented levels.
The badguy in this book will have you wanting to jump into the story, grab a sword, and take his head (sorry, reference to another good fantasy tale ;-) ).
Don't start with this book and its trilogy...start with "Last of the Renshai."

4.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes slow, but overall great April 9 2001
Overall this was a great book. It is full of deception and heroism. Some of the characters seem to act irrational sometimes, but this is how it would work in real life. The plot is defined and developed, and the characters have strong values which they usually stick. I also enjoyed it because I wasn't sure what was going to happen next. This book is definately a good read, but I would not put it in my top five.
(This book was great, don't get me wrong, but after this book definately read the Iron Tower Trilogy {The Dark Tide, Shadows of Doom, and The Darkest Day} by Dennis L. McKiernan. Especially if you liked LOR.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Peters out July 6 1999
By A Customer
Starting strong, *Beyond Ragnarok* holds great promise at the beginning, the seeds of an epic tale sown in the excitement and terror in the prologue. However, the work continues on to become a sloppy mess, brightened only by the powerful images of the characters and the cool concept of Law vs. Chaos. The pace is definitely too slow, and the language has a flowery, showy feel, as if Reichert is trying to impress her readers. Well, it doesn't work, because the formality of the words adds to the tedium of the plot, which splits off in a dozen directions and meanders away to pointless storytelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Feb. 12 1999
This book was almost the destruction of my 2nd quarter grades, since with it and the sequal I didn't really accomplish _any_ schoolwork for at least a week. I haven't been so engrossed since "Wizard's First Rule," and in my opinion these characters are more real, dear, and ultimately heroic than Goodkind's. Though I feel Matrinka's backbone was made of wet noodle, the other strong characterizations in the book more than made up for it (especially Kevral and Tae). I have no doubt that I shall read this book again, and I anxiously await the paperback of number three.

4.0 out of 5 stars !!!!!! March 2 1999
By A Customer
This book was great! But i was a little disapointed when Mitrian of Mar Lon (or the "old" characters) weren't in this book. But i realize it's necessary. It bothers me that they didn't tell about what happened to them in this book. I like the new charecters though. And the elves are funny! But another thing that REALLY annoyed me was that Reichert repeats herself over and over again. Like how every time Baltriane passes the paintings on the walls she always mentions that he takes no notice of the beautiful paintings or that it ceases to amaze him.

We all know how hard it is for contemporary authors to create epic tales that are not copies of the classic greats, ie. Tolkien. Mickey Zucker Reichert has done this and done it in fine style. Based on the greatest of Norse legends, this tale of politics, religious loyalties, and the never-ending cycles of life will suck you in, fill you up, and spit you out with a renewed appreciation for fine authors like Mr. Reichert. Definitely a weekend read of non-stop entertainment every inch the equal of the first series--with a twist. Enjoy!

2.0 out of 5 stars This was the wrong one to start with. Jan. 12 2000
By A Customer
I started and stopped the Renshai series with this novel. Too many references to characters I didn't know,and to characters I thought I did know from Norse mythology, but didn't expect to act the way they did in this novel. Maybe I've been brainwashed by the Wagnerian version of 'Twilight of the Gods', but I was expecting something a bit nobler and more awesome than showed up in 'Beyond Ragnarok'. The elves seemed to be particularly clueless.
