Immerse yourself into the cryptic and perilous world of Diveria with the first novel from the realm of archaic deception.

Archaic Deception: The Guardian of Emblems was a great magical read.  Many times I felt as if the scenery was right before my very eyes. I was  fascinated with the world, Diveria, that Dayvie created.”

I would classify Archaic Deception more as urban fantasy. Dayvie does a beautiful job with world-building and setting the stage for future books within this universe. I would give this 4.5 stars rounded up to 5.”
