If you love epic fantasy that you can really get your teeth into, you’ll love our next release, a metaphysical fantasy by Willian Sandberg titled The Golden Codex. As well as having all the exciting elements we expect in a good fantasy, the book has a deep metaphysical vision that is fascinating and gripping.
This is the first in a series of five books that the author has been working on for decades. It’s a rare work, and one that when the author submitted it to AIA Publishing, I recognised as something very special. It was even so well written that it didn’t need a line edit – and that’s rare in a new author. So this author really knows how to write.

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.
