The Book of Death is one of Charlotte's spell books in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. It can be found at the top-left part of the boulder room in the Forgotten City (Owl Morph or Griffon Wing required). The head of Anubis will spawn from the book with each attack, dealing Dark damage. Since most enemies in the game are resistant to Dark and the book's base physical ATK is only +44, it ends up being a weak weapon, as by the time it can be obtained, the player most probably will already have the Tome of Arms 2 (ATK +50) or even the Tome of Arms 3 (ATK +80). Still, the Book of Death may be useful for dealing with Holy element based enemies, like Aliorumnae, Nyxes or Amalaric Snipers.
