First game

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

The Secret Book (Japanese: 秘伝の書 Secret Book) is one of several enhancing items in the Fire Emblem series. Its function is to permanently increases the skill of any unit by, usually, two points. Exceptions to this are the original Archanea games, where this item adds five points.

The Secret Book is available in every game of the series other than Gaiden, its remake Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, and the Jugdral games. Its equivalent in Thracia 776 is the Skill Ring.
