Where to find


[Stamps in the endpapers indicate this book was once part of the library of the High Heralds when they occupied Moonrise Towers. The librarian's summary reads as follows.]

Very old scholarly treatise about obscure necromantic tomes and codexes, their mystic and arcane locks, and how to unlock and decipher them.

[At the end, the librarian appended the following note.]

Urgent request from 'researcher' Ilyn Toth to borrow this book officially DENIED. Stated 'casual interest' in the notorious Necromancy of Thay is a clear warning sign that his interest is anything BUT casual.

In any event, this isn't even the book he wants, that's the Tharchiate Codex.
