Book of the Dead Page #5
Location. Yeah, the next page is all the way in Drenchfort. This can be found along with a Stone of Mystics. As soon as you enter first large room in which a short cutscene plays out, run to the right until you see around the statue.
In the distance is the stone. Now, run to the left side of the statue – you’ll notice a small gap in the railing. Step off the edge here and you’ll land on a ledge with the page on it.
Book of the Dead Page #6

The Lost Temple
Book of the Dead Page #8
Location. On the first floor, you’ll encounter a custodian at the bottom of an elevator. Reanimate it and leave it there. Climb up the nearby wall for another custodian, and bring it back and plant it in the slot near the elevator.
The first one will rise, and now you can put one of the two in the slot north of the elevator. Take the other one through the revealed passage, and then configure the two. Instead of crossing over the chain and continuing with the dungeon, walk along it to reach the page.
