Hello KLU's, Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I've never noticed this feature. Yes, Beyond Ragnarok is the 1st book in the Renshai Chronicles Trilogy. There is another trilogy called The Renshai Trilogy, (The Last of the Renshai is first), which starts prior to the events in the one I recommended. It was a good trilogy, but I like the Renshai Chronicles better.
