Dresden Files

A conjunction is a place in space or in time when the laws of magic are bent enough to allow actions that are normally impossible.[1] It is first mentioned in Cold Days.


Though as yet unexplained, conjunctions are implicated in a number of magical phenomena. Once a year, there is a conjunction when immortals are vulnerable, Halloween, which is the only time when a Darkhallow can be attempted. According to Bob, Cowl knew it,[1] explaining why the Kemmlerites attempted a Darkhallow in Dead Beat.[1]


In Dead Beat, necromancers, the Heirs of KemmlerCowl, Corpsetaker and Grevane—raced each other to be the first to attempt a dark spell called the Darkhallow on Halloween night to make themselves into a godlike being.[2][3][4][5]
