Reviews - What do customers think about Dawn of Destruction (Ragnarok, Book 4)?
THE WRONG SUSPECT Aug 3, 2005
Told by his mother Frigg to search for the one who is "human but not human", Chaos, Fenris, and Iris arrive in the capital of Prontera, with no idea who they are seeking. After Skurai kills everyone at the assassins guild with the help of Odin's Beholders, a frame-up is perpetrated, making Loki think that Chaos has killed the order that keeps Midgard in balance. Swearing revenge, Loki sets out to kill Chaos, and Skurai is not far behind in seeking out a clash that will surely entail powerful blood for his cursed sword.
Ragnarok brings a lot of action to the table, but along with it, the characters and plot are engaging enough to provide a good entertainment for fantasy fans. While this series seems to borrow ideas from other works, whether it be Asgardian legends or Elric, or Dungeons and Dragons, it works. Lee's action sequences could be done much better because he uses so many lines to convey motion that it usually obscures the action, making you have to guess what happened sometimes. But all together this is an above average comic for readers that enjoy action and epic fantasy storylines.
Bringing it to the max Aug 14, 2003
I must say that the pacing for books 2 and 3 were a little slow. But Book 4 changes all that. The action in this volune was superb. Actually, not superb because there isn't a high enough word that can accurately describe the fight scenes. I don't think I have seen a better action sequence in manwha or manga.
I'm use to seeing languages being translated and I know that you'll have to lose something when switching between langauges although I never found the translation to be confusing or weird.

Excellent manwha series Jan 12, 2003
A great series with an engaging story and lots of action. My only gripe is that the translator (Richard Knaak) did a mediocre job of translating some text and phrases in certain scenes that just don't fit. The "sound-fx" text also was pretty bad. I.E. Hop, hop, hop...what is that?
Also, I remember reading an earlier preview from someone saying that this was quote "...an awesome manga..." technically it's a Korean comic in which they call it manwha in their language. Manga is comic for Japanese.
Ragnarok Forever! Dec 1, 2002
This is definitly an awesome manga! The plot is extremely original, you can easily bond with the characters, and the art is simply magnificent! Myung-jin Lee has really done a wonderful job, and I'm sure he'll continue to do so throughout the series. For all those who love manga, I highly recommend Ragnarok.
