The boss in question here is the Gretel, the surviving statue in the Lost Shrine. You will encounter her when you make your way to the Lost Shrine from the back entrance to get the first Key Fragment.

Easiest way to dispatch is to spam Dark Blast on her unrelentingly, avoiding her ranged attacks.

As with all of the "Defeat Boss X within time Y" achievements, it is best to not attempt this achievement until a later playthrough.

I achieved it on my third play with the difficulty set to Easy. Honestly, I'm not sure how I didn't get it on my second play (I suppose I tried to melee her too much,) but she fell with absolute ease on my third play.

Achievement should pop after a short cinematic following the fight.

Good luck!
