Reyn may not be a ground-breaking title bringing something new to the fantasy genre, and aside from Reyn’s stellar one-liners, the pedestrian dialogue does not make for compelling reading. The action scenes, however, are beautifully executed, the protagonists are likeable and the story arc as a whole does have potential. The elaborate combat scenes may have little substance, but this issue establishes Reyn as fun, entertaining- if slightly pedestrian- fantasy.
Reyn does not necessarily offer the reader anything different from other fantasy titles, but the two protagonists have the potential to become compelling and entertaining characters. Separating Reyn from the typical fantasy hero archetype is what will make the book stand out from a very large crowd of similar titles.
