Here is what Carrie had to say about A.R. Dragonfly:


Amber Ryann’s character had me from the get go. A typical gamer girl with social anxiety that lives for her online battle game, Blaze Auras. Her days consist of sleeping, eating PB&J sandwiches, working a part-time job and whoopin’ ass online at night.

Joshua did a great job in bringing her character to life. With only a few characters in the novel, it was easy to keep track and invest in their wellbeing and in their story.

He went into great depth about the online game, Blaze Auras, which he created for this light novel and it came alive in the writing. I expected Amber to enter the game, like many other light novels, but Joshua wrote it from the standpoint of her playing the game, sitting behind the screen.

At first glance when I realized this, I thought it may be a little boring as I do enjoy novels where the characters jump into virtual reality, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. And that comes from Joshua’s great writing skills. I felt I was battling Khaine along side Amber!

I did hope to see Amber and Khaine meet face-to-face, and, without giving anything away, I’m guessing they kind of did. I just hoped there would have been a bit more to that part of the story. Maybe in Vol 2?

Overall, a quick and entertaining read when you have a few hours to spare!
