Northward, haunted northern coastline

A simple place, a shield from draft.
At this stand wield mage’s craft
So fierce the sea will boil.
More text is unlocked throughout Destruction Ritual Spell quest.
The book is identical in appearance to Shalidor’s Insights. Once the final point in the Destruction Ritual Spell quest has been found, the last few pages of the book are unlocked, which, indeed, carry a message from Shalidor himself. This text reads as follows:
Elemental magic wielded,
Elemental thoughts displayed
Havoc wrought as if for sport,
Efforts to impress fall short.
I’ll merely use a blade.
Seeking study, wanting, learning,
Recklessly aroused my rage!
My pupil you would be, or more?
Presume not of Shalidor,
You feeble, foolish mage!
Quickly dispatched, worthless weakling,
Though this tome I gladly claim.
A diamond in the rough, I find.
Shining gem from feeble mind.
Now die, and curse my name!
