First off you can either have spared Idunna's life while doing the "Enemies among us" quest or find the Evil Tome in the Chantry or the Viscount in Act 2.Second you need to destroy all five books in these locations, reading or taking these Five will negate the quest and you will have to reload to an earlier save.

( The "Fell Grimorie" at the "Evil Pit" is the only book that can be read without negating the quest)

Be Forewarned that each time you destroy a book you will have to fight a wave of demons that might consist of Shade's, Rage Demons, Abominations, One Desire Demon, Three Revenants, Arcane Horrors and some Golems (only in Sundermount)so come prepared.

My party was, A Warrior (myself), My Sister (Sub for Anders), Varric (must have) Merrill. Its a party suggestion, but I strongly recommended it.

Chantry- When you first walk into the Chantry take the stairs on your left and go to the second floor turn left and walk to the desk that is in the bedroom/study area, the book is on the desk.
Viscount's Keep- Walk straight back toward the Throne room, walk to the left and you will see the book sitting on a bench.
Bone Pit - Find the "Cave" in the far right back of this map
Wounded Coast- Find the "Dank Cave" at the top of the hill, you will fight a few spiders and a Dragon.
Sundermount- Go to the left of the mountain (do not go up it) and you should see a "Recently Open Passage" once inside you will see a hallway to the left and a door to your front, take the hallway on your left and fight the Golem. Once he his taken down, ignore the loot-able body in this room to avoid a fight. Now before you can touch the book you have to fight a few waves of Shades, Abominations, Rage Demons, A Desire Demon, Two Revenants.

After Destroying the final book, you will see that the quest is updated and it tells you to head to Dark Town ( I would take the time to resupply before entering the "Evil Pit" you will fight a lot and I mean a lot of Fade Demons) and into the "Evil Pit". Verric can open the closed door, and you will have to fight some undead and Arcane Horrors. Once you fight through the wave to room that holds the "Fell Grimorie" I would advise that you read the book and take the offer as the other options are not as rewarding.

Whatever you choose once you finish you will start a fight with Xebenkeck who will summon Fade demons to assist her, it is best to focus your attacks on Xebenkeck, Templar Abilities such as Silence and Holy Smite did help on her. Since she uses quite alot of spells. Use any potions that will keep your health, stam, and mana up. Keep attacking until she and all of the demons are killed.

Now Sir Komalot, said he had trouble with the guide to battle Xebenkeck and commented another way, so here is his way to defeat X.
"i thought i should note that if you are having trouble beating the big X then dont do as this guide says to focus on her. although this guide is excellent i had trouble even on a lower difficulty but as soon as i changed my stragtegy i got it first try it was almost too easy. simply defeat everything she summons first. i discovered she summons enemies at different intervals of health so if you are simply concentrating on attacking her then you will be easily overrun by multitudes of rage demons/abominations/etc"

The Silvatung has given his solution on defeating Xebenkeck on Nightmare Difficulty.
Read the book and choose whatever option you wish. After you've done, take control of your whole party and leave the room (it helps if you have your dog summoned for this part). A few of the demons should follow you, but not all of them. Kill them and run back towards the entrance (until your party sheath their weapons, allowing you to save).

Go back and peek your head around the corner of the alley towards the main room and the remainder of the demons should come (not including Xebenkeck). Finish them off and put your party on hold. Use 1 character to inch towards Xebenkeck until she sees you. Quickly run back around the corner and ambush her with your whole party. By herself, she is very easy work.

Now go down the alley and enter the room with the book. The rest of the demons should spawn, but are fairly easy to beat without Xeben's support. Once you've killed the last one, the achievement should unlock.

So if you have any questions or need a section to be more direct please comment and post your questions. Also if you leave a Negative please say why so a fix might made to the solution for others. Thank you.
