The 2 books (angel's talon and doomsword) are available from that dwarf that comes up to you and sells you books. If you pay him (400? i think), he'll give you both books (event only occurs twice, and can happen on the starter training quest); if you decline to pay, he'll just give you the one book each time.
As a side note.. If you file these books away into a bookshelf without a blacksmith in your kingdom, they'll be deleted with no way to recover them in that ambition.
i got 2 books from that Dwarf by taking a trip to shop towne as a smith. (the sword of chincilla and sword of doom)
So i go home, and put the books in the bookshelf and saved the game.
And later i checked the bookshelf to go see if i had enough level to read, and guess what, it was gone !!!!
The sword of chincilla i could reobtain by buying from shoppe town. But as for the Sword of Doom book, i never saw it again.
Later in the story i met the dwarf again, using same method. I got the other 2 books, sword of the watcher and angel's talon. This time around i will keep the book in my black smiths inventory at all times.
To my understanding the last book requires you to have culture 10 before you can buy from shop towne.
Anyway my question is, how do i recover the doom sword manual now ? Any ideas ???
