Burned Book

Wondrous item, very rare (requires attunement)

This scorched volume allows you to store magical knowledge within it, ground from the ashes of mystical secrets others could never understand. The book itself is unharmed by fire, but if you burn a magical scroll with a sorcerer, warlock, or wizard spell on it and sprinkle the ashes on the pages of the burned book, you can treat that spell as a spell known whenever you study the burned book for 1 hour. If you are a wizard, this spell is also treated as a spell you have prepared. The spell must be on your class list in order for you to cast it.

The burned book can store more than one spell, up to a total of 10 levels of spells. However, a spell that does not deal fire damage is treated as twice its actual level (or 1st level, if it is a cantrip) for this purpose.

In addition, an attuned user can gain one of the following benefits after studying the burned book for at least 1 hour after completing a long rest.

Sorcerer: You gain 2 sorcery points that can be used only when casting spells that deal fire damage.

Warlock: When you hit a creature with a warlock cantrip or 1stlevel warlock spell that deals damage, as a bonus action you can deal the target fire damage equal to your Charisma modifier (minimum 1).

Wizard: When you use your Arcane Recovery class feature, you can recover up to three additional levels of spell slots (up to a maximum of your wizard level -1), but these additional spell slots can only be used to cast spells that deal fire damage.
