I didn’t want the story to end.”

-Audible Listener

“Dark, good stuff. Well-written and well-narrated. I listened to it twice in a row.”

-Geoff Sturtevant, Author

“Justin Swapp and his amazing ability to spin a good tale. His brand of storytelling brings the reader right into the middle of the action and makes you duck when fists start flying and chairs are crashing into walls.”

-Audible Listener

“The idea behind the codex cube is inventive and fun.
The reader put together a beautiful performance. His accents were excellent, and he had a style that brought the story to life.”

The Codex

by Justin Swapp

The Story

AudioWelcome to The Codex – Omnibus edition.

This special edition includes the epic origin story, Failed Crusade, that inspired five volumes of demon hunting across the multiverse (and multiple genres.) This fantasy story has an amazing twist ending.

The original Codex stories appeared in The Crimson Pact anthologies as The Transition and The Merging. These stories are connected to each other, and to Failed Crusade at their roots, but occur many years later. They follow an unsuspecting foreign exchange student named Sloan Boyle. A seemingly innocent interaction with a stranger in a Spanish Cafe leads to a dangerous series of events, and a weighty discovery that threatens everything Sloan ever knew about this world and his role in it.

Club PK2 is written in the same Codex universe as the other stories but is a separate adventure with distinct charactAudioers. The voice is reminiscent of Supernatural. It follows a hardened cop named Tray sent undercover on special assignment to expose a dangerous underground fight club. The cop discovers much more than a bunch of thugs trying to make a buck, and he learns something about The Codex, and the demon’s master plan in the process.


The Codex ended up playing a pivotal role in the final story, Sealed with Fire. This epic final battle between The Crimson Pact and the demons pays tribute to the best stories and characters in the series. As you finish listening to this omnibus edition, I hope you’ll be interested in learning how The Codex impacted the final fight. If that’s the case, you’ll want to pick up The Crimson Pact, volume five.
