There is a central circular area surrounded by an enclosed outer passage. It is guarded by two skeevers and an adept locked chest behind a tilted pillar by the outer wall of the passage. During Kyne's Sacred Trials quest you will find a larger-than-life, ghostly skeever within the ruin. In the central area is a plinth which you need to activate to place the book; Power of the Elements received from Faralda. Then cast a flame spell at it, in order to advance the quest and receive the next clue to the second location. There is a snowberry bush in the central area.
