Editorial Reviews


Author Bryan Strickland has created a truly superb and totally contemporary superhero tale that will engulf cross-genre fans from the sci-fi, military fiction, cli-fi, and LGBTQ+ readerships. Charming and stylish, but also hard-edged and filled with gritty action and adventure, Lyra is a realistic hero in the sense that her humanity is her downfall as much as it is her strength. An openly gay and female protagonist gives an authentic contemporary feel to the tale, used here not for gimmicks but as a genuine expression of Lyra's heart. Overall, Lyra Rayne: Ground Zero is a superb opening to a very promising and exciting science fiction series. - K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite - 5-Star Rating
With Lyra Rayne:Ground Zero Strickland gives us a superhero we can take home tomeet our mother. Yes, a female character, and one you willlove. [...] Endowed with a protective nature, Lyra, by default,assumes the role of helper to others, but learns early on that thingscan backfire on you even when you have the best of intentions.  And even as she is struggling to masterher new powers an adversary arises with none of the qualms ofconscience our heroine has. Their titanic struggle makes for onehellova thrill ride. [...]
Strickland tosses a compelling andbelievable romance into the mix, with a timely twist of its own. Youwill find yourself cheering not just for Lyra, but for Lyra'sspecial someone. (Face it: it ain't easy having a superhero for agirlfriend!) Surely a good deal of Lyra's appeal is that that hersuperpowers do not make her any less vulnerable emotionally. [...]
All in all, a superb first novel. Strickland's very humancharacters, dramatic pacing and timing of plot elements keeps usengaged from cover to cover and he leaves us with the assurance thatthere is plenty more where that came from. - Greg Thomas, M.A. and former Instructor of English and Humanities

From the Back Cover

Lyra Rayne's greatest desire is to help. In big ways and the small, she just wants to help those in need. Through the altruistic ventures of her mentor, Dr. Grant Hill, and his vision for a clean, free energy source, Lyra found a way to help make the world a better place. That is, until the experimental reactor erupts into a scintillating wave of Exotic Particle Radiation that destroys their lab, and nearly kills Lyra in the process.
Miraculously surviving the blast, Lyra undergoes traumatic changes that alter her physiology, right down to her DNA. Through this exposure, Lyra discovers that she has gained the supernatural ability to effect far greater change. Donning the mantle of a helpful heroine, Lyra puts herself in harms way to save the innocent. However, she quickly discovers that having superhuman powers does not reconcile human fallibility, and even one critical mistake can have devastating consequences.
Faced with the cost of her attempted heroics, she suffers doubt and guilt over the blood of those she failed to save. As she struggles with the consequences of her choices, the city comes under threat from another, more powerful enhanced being. Lyra must face her fears and failings in order to stand against the rising tide of rage and vengeance that threatens the city and its inhabitants, or risk losing everything in the epic conflict to come.
