The Book of Dark Magic is an extremely powerful dark artifact in the Skylanders Academy television series, belonging to Kaossandra. The book contains various evil spells of great power, and possesses a powerful dark magic of its own, being able to boost Kaos's magical powers simply through contact. It is a deep, dark secret that Kaossandra holds that could save or destroy all of Skylands.
The book is protected by a curse placed by Kaossandra which prevents anyone but her to open it, but with the right magic, the curse can be lifted. Imprisoned inside the tome is a mysterious, red-eyed entity, that the sorceress regularly seals inside with the curse.
Though the book's origins are unknown, it was hidden from the public eye for some time, as it was believed to have been destroyed during the Great War.
The book is first seen in Crash Landing, as Kaossandra started her daily meditation to strengthen its curse. Though she advised for no one to enter, Kaos sneaked in the room and stole it after she left, and discovered the book's curse while trying to open it and use its powers to impress his mother. To open it, he and Glumshanks went to the Falling Forest and bargained with Chompy Mage, but the Doom Raider discovered the curse's suspicious strength and tried to take it for himself.
While they battled for it, with Kaos nearly destroying the greedy sorcerer with his empowered magic, Team Spyro and Crash Bandicoot interfered, and defeated both while taking the book for themselves. Returning it to Master Eon as a dark relic capable of opening an interdimensional rift, the wizard used it to return Crash to his homeworld, but was afflicted by its dark magic and greatly weakened; and worse still, Chompy Mage revealed the book's existence and current location to the other Doom Raiders.
In Assault on Skylander Academy, Eon's condition worsened as he tried to research the book, and Team Spyro traveled to the Core of Light to obtain a light cure before he succumbed to the darkness. In the meantime however, Kaossandra, Kaos and the Doom Raiders invaded the Academy to steal the dark relic, until Golden Queen decided to take the book for herself, forcing Kaossandra to subdue her betrayers with a dark magic explosion. In the scuffle, however, they were all forced to escape, and Master Eon managed to hold onto the book as the main Skylander team returned to cure him. Seeing the dangers of the book with his own eyes, however, he returned it to Kaossandra in secret, and she strengthened its curse again before its malevolent entity could flee from the room.
