Black Volume of the Dead is a powerful spell book containing dark magic.
The Black Volume of the Dead contains such dark magic, including necromancy, that all warlocks are forbidden from owning the book because. It is the black book referred to in the faerie rhyme relating to the Lady Midnight.
It was originally located in the library of the Los Angeles Institute before the Dark War in December 2007, during which it was stolen by warlock Malcolm Fade. In 2012, he used a spell within the book to resurrect Annabel Blackthorn. The book is currently lost at sea with his body.
