Lex Kent
A new superhero book that was reasonably entertaining. There were some parts I enjoyed, others I struggled with so I’m left feeling that this was about an average Kindle Unlimited (currently) self-published read. While the main hero is female and has powers similar to Superman, this book gave me a real Spiderman movie feel to it. If you enjoyed really any of the million Spidey remakes, you might enjoy the feel of this book too.

I do have to say I struggled in the beginning of this book. I could n

Lyra Rayne: Ground Zero is the first book in Bryan Strickland’s superhero series. The story is essentially an origin story for the main hero and her comrades, and follows through three stages: introduction to Lyra and how she gains her powers, Lyra learning her abilities and the villain reveal, and an action-packed finale. The layout of the story should be familiar to most superhero fans, and that’s really no bad thing. At its heart, I felt like Lyra Rayne was a loving homage to superhero tales, ...more

So I'm not super into superhero books (comic or otherwise) as a general rule. I like the movies, and I love the characters. But the stories often embody a lot of patriarchal BS mixed in with narcissistic hero complexes. They tend to paint women as little more than sex objects who exist solely for the male gaze (Wonder Woman was written expressly for that purpose). As a queer woman, I don't really see myself represented in many superhero stories, which are mostly spun in a heteronormative, hyperm ...more

The bones of this story were really good. Strickland’s debut has a lot of potential, but much of the story gets lost in long-winded, overwritten scenes.

I enjoyed Lyra as a character and I thought Strickland did a good job of outlining her and setting her up as the main character. However, I didn’t feel like she ended up fully fleshed out. I got the impression that she was almost there, but her inner monologues were way too long and repetitive m

I found myself heavily invested in Lyra, and found her inner conflict very relatable. How do you take on such a grand responsibility overnight? I feel that this book, being a very dense read, could have been shaved down by almost a third, and still done a marvelous job telling the story. I look forward to continuing with Lyra's story in book 2! ...more

Amusingly descriptive and sometimes intense, I found it hard to put down at times. Fun read!
