At his father's urging, a teenage boy finds himself working in an antique store while learning arcane skills and knowledge from the owner. While exploring the basement, he unintentionally converts a black coal from the dawn of creation into a mutating manuscript engraved on gold. When a much-feared magus finds out, the boy's mentor destroys the manuscript and casts it into gold ingots to prevent the magus from accessing the knowledge it contains. But the boy receives a psychic image of the text and becomes a carrier of the golden codex.

The magus, keen to have the knowledge for himself, enslaves the boy in another realm, where he discovers that resistance, even valiantly fought beside a company of champions, is no match for the powerful master. To escape the realm he must enter a deadly contest that promises freedom for the winner and death for the vanquished.

Review quote

"The Golden Codex by William Sandberg is a life's journey tale that follows Piers as he develops
and hones his skills, and discovers the power he holds within, as he prepares for a fateful final confrontation with the powers that be of the Ordinath. An intricate weaving of the real, the modern, with the fantasy universe from which the powers that motivate the Ordinath originate. Sandberg's universe is totally believable; even the 'magical' elements are credible. Characters are easy to identify and empathize with." Charles Ray. Reviewer for Awesome Indies Books.
