Narrated from the first-person perspective, The Archfiend Artifact by Selena IR Drake is a beguiling read. Cybil Starr is stuck with her horrible grandmother ever since her parents were murdered in a bizarre way. Unhappy and feeling like she doesn't belong to this world, Cybil tries to escape when she nears her fifteenth birthday. Plagued by visions, she learns from Duncan, who has stalked her, that she is a high born, her father being a parathrope, a mystical creature with inhuman powers. Brought to a mysterious place, she realizes she has powers that are starting to manifest and it is out of her control. Accused of stealing a hideous mirror, Cybil's life is in danger and she only has three days to solve the case. Will her unique power and vision save the day?

The Archfiend Artifact by Selena IR Drake is an enchanting trip into the world of the unknown. As we accompany Cybil Starr in her escape from her grandmother's home to her incarceration in a most unusual place, we come to know an enchanted world that could actually exist in our midst. A world populated by parathropes, psychics, witches, pure-blooded demons and many more.

And as the narrative continues, the reader has no choice but to completely immerse himself or herself in a new reality that is a product of a very rich and unique mind. This gem of a book is a truly fascinating read!
