Merlin wrote it, in part from his own work, and also from his research into the available magical texts of his day—many of which are now lost.

Cassie bargains with the Dark Fey King to release Pritkin's Golem from being hunted and sanctuary for Tomas, plus information and aid in locating Tony in Faerie. Pritkin is so incensed that the King threatens him and Kit Marlowe tackles him. JP is furious that Cassie bargained to book to the Dark Fey King. He finally has his chance to confront her about it at the Lyceum Theatre in 1889. John's determined to stop her from giving the Codex to the Dark Fey King. She tries to appease him by offering to let him have first crack at it to remove the dangerous spells, if she can have for the counterspell to the Geis—she never promised the King not to gut the book.
- "But if you help me," I hastened to add, "I'll let you have first crack at it. You can take out whatever you feel is so dangerous, give me the counterspell for the geis and then we turn the rest over to the king.” — Cassie and Pritkin 
- He looked at me as if I were speaking Martian. "Do you not realize what you did? You gave the Fey your word-they will hold you to it.” ... "I said I'd give them the book. I didn't make any promises about the contents.” ... "And you think that specious argument will hold up?” ... "Yeah." I really wondered what world Pritkin had been living in, because it sure wasn't the supernatural one. "Anything not specifically spelled out in a contract is open to interpretation. If the king didn't want me gutting the book, he should have said so.” — Cassie and Pritkin
