Book 10, Baruch – Chapter 43: The Ratmageddon Wave

Within the endless mist, an endless swarm of rats came. All of the warriors, including the Sacred Legion, the Shadow Legion, and the others felt terror in their hearts. But despite their terror, they still had to wield their weapons and attack those magical beasts.

If the magical beasts didn’t die, they would die!

“Kill!” Arrows rained down like the rain upon the wave of rats, but the defense of the Stoneater Rats was simply too tough, while the Shadowmice were too fast. Only a few Shadowmice were killed.

And then…

The wave of rats slammed into the Radiant Church and the Cult of Shadows’ forces.

“Crunch, crunch.” A terrifying series of crunching sounds.

A seemingly infinite number of rats charged forward, biting to death all of the human soldiers who sought to block them. Not only was their flesh stripped; even their bones were devoured. The Sacred Legion and Shadow Legion, all combined, had ten thousand warriors of the seventh rank.

But ten thousand warriors of the seventh rank, in the face of that rat wave, was absolutely nothing.

This was because the rat wave had a terrifying number of rats of the seventh rank, while ordinary Stoneater Rats and Shadowmice of the fifth rank, when charging in mass, could still bite a warrior of the seventh rank to death. Ten thousand warriors of the seventh rank…in front of a tidal wave of hundreds of millions of rats, utterly disappeared.

“Flee!” Some soldiers cried out in terror as they began to run.

Once the first began to flee, many of the other terrified soldiers began to flee as well. They couldn’t resist the rat wave at all.


They couldn’t flee!

The Shadowmice and Stoneater Rats were extremely fast, far faster than humans. The fleeing warriors were quickly surrounded, then devoured. Even Guillermo and Weiss Porter were so terrified that their faces turned white, and they quickly began to flee.

“Quick, quick.” Weiss Porter and Guillermo didn’t try to resist at all.

The attack of the rat wave caused nearly half of the enemy force of a million soldiers to disappear, with not even the bones remaining.

“Linley, it’s enough to make them surrender. Don’t let this slaughter continue.” Delia couldn’t bear to watch any more.

Linley glanced at the three Violet-Gold Rat Kings, and one of them grinned towards Delia. “Sure. Hey, Linley, just make the announcement. As long as the humans kneel down and raised their hands up in a token of submission, the rats won’t attack them.”

Linley nodded slightly.

“Everyone, listen up. Kneel down and raise your hands in surrender. The magical beasts won’t attack you if you do so!” Linley’s voice rang out like thunder from the skies.

Hearing this sound, the hopeless soldiers immediately began to kneel down and raise their hands up.

At the same time, the Violet-Gold Rat King opened its mouth. “Shkreeeee!”

The high pitched screech rang out in the mist, and all the rats, as though having heard an order, bizarrely moved passed all of the kneeling soldiers, attacking the other soldiers.

“What to do?” Guillermo was in a state of total panic. Both Weiss Porter and Guillermo were using protective spells to defend themselves.

“How should I know?” Weiss Porter was terrified as well.

Right now, there were over ten rats nearly a meter long staring at them. The ten rats were either violet colored or gold colored, and the violet-furred rats had hints of gold in their fur, while the gold-furred rats had tints of violet in their fur.

Under a normal situation…

High level Shadowmice were violet at the seventh rank, and were known as Violet Shadowmice.

High level Stoneater Rats were gold at the seventh rank, and were known as Gold Stoneater Rats.

But from the seventh rank to the Saint-level, the fur of Violet Shadowmice would slowly turn a violet-gold color, while the Gold Stoneater Rats would see their fur also turn to a gold-violet color.

These ten rats were clearly of the eighth or ninth ranks.

“Squeak squeak.” One of the Stoneater Rats of the ninth rank suddenly pounced at them, biting through Guillermo’s Lightguard spell at one chomp. At the same time, Weiss Porter’s magical defense also came under assault and was broken through, but the ten rats didn’t immediately continue their assaults.

They were very intelligent, not one bit lower than humans in intelligence.

Guillermo and Weiss Porter exchanged glances. Their foreheads were covered with sweat, and their backs were also slick with sweat. They understood…if these ten rats charged toward them, they would instantly be bitten to death. Not even their bones would be left.

But just at this time, Linley’s voice rang out.

After exchanging glances, the two didn’t hesitate at all.

“Thud!” Their knees hit the ground, and their hands raised up.

Instantly, eight of the ten rats left, while the other two stayed there, staring at them. The rats were very smart; the ten rats had instantly discovered that these two experts of the ninth rank, Guillermo and Weiss Porter, were the enemy leaders.

Enemy leaders had to be taken alive, of course.

After the morning fog slowly dissipated, Linley’s side could clearly see that large number of kneeling enemy soldiers, all of whom were surrounded by ten, no, a hundred times their number of rats and mice. The visual effect of these massive numbers alone were awesome and terrifying to behold.

“Swish!” A sudden flash of light, as a gold-colored rat with a tint of purple in its fur scurried over, letting out two squeaks.

“What? Only three hundred thousand enemy soldiers are still alive.” Bebe said in surprise. Bebe naturally could understand the language of rat-type magical beasts.

The three Violet-Gold Rat Kings narrowed their eyes in delight. One of them looked at Bebe. “Bebe, what do you think?” Bebe looked at the endless sea of rats and sighed, “They really are powerful. It’d be so awesome if these rats obeyed my command.”

Who could possibly resist an army of hundreds of millions of rat-type magical beasts?

“Oh, that’s easy.” The leader of the violet-gold rats let out a few high pitched screeches, and Bebe instantly grew excited.

Linley looked at Bebe in confusion.

“Boss, from today onwards, these hundreds of millions of rats will obey my command. Haha!” Bebe was extremely excited. At the same time, he also let out a few high pitched squeaks which also encompassed the entire battlefield. The countless rat-type magical beasts all lowered their heads and bowed towards Bebe.

Linley was secretly shocked.

Stoneater Rat swarms and Shadowmice swarms were frighteningly strong. Linley had known of this since he was young. But Linley had felt that a rat wave of several million rat-type monsters was already very frightening. But several hundred million…this was simply terrifying.

“Which army can possibly resist these hundreds of millions of rats?” Linley secretly shook his head.

This was like when the magical beasts of the Mountain Range of Magical Beasts came charging out. Even Fenlai City itself was broken through in moments, and both the Holy Union as well as the Dark Alliance lost a third of their territory. One could imagine how terrifying magical beast swarms were. And the Forest of Darkness…was the home of rat-type magical beasts.

This small portion of the rat-type beasts within it was enough to lay waste to an Empire.

But of course, that was assuming Saints did not get involved!

The leading Violet-Gold Rat King laughed towards Linley. “Let me introduce myself. My name is Harry [Ha’li]!”

“My name’s Hart [Ha’te]. I’m number two.” A second Violet-Gold Rat King said immediately.

The final Violet-Gold Rat King nodded and was about to speak, but Linley interjected, “You must be Harvey [Ha’wei], right? Bebe often speaks to me of you.” The only Violet-Gold Rat King which Bebe had made friends with in the Forest of Darkness was Harvey. The others, he didn’t have much of a relationship with.

“Are the three of you truly giving control of this rat swarm to Bebe?” Linley asked.

This rat swarm was simply too enormous. How could these Rat Kings give them to Bebe to control?

The Violet-Gold Rat King, Harry, said disdainfully, “You don’t understand. In the Forest of Darkness, every so often, there will be a massive internal slaughter amongst the rat swarms. More than half will die, and the weak will be destroyed.”

“More than half?” Linley felt shocked.

The third-ranked Rat King, Harvey, explained: “It’s simple. The lower-ranked the rat, the faster they breed. A single litter can contain a dozen or several dozen. How can that be allowed to continue? If that continues, the Forest of Darkness wouldn’t be large enough for them to survive in. That’s why they engage in internal warfare, weeding out the weak and lowering the numbers.”

Linley understood now.

If the rat-type magical beasts were allowed to develop as they pleased, most likely the entire Forest of Darkness would be devoured by them. Their numbers had to be controlled.

“Thus, Bebe.” The Rat King named Harvey patted Bebe’s shoulder with his little paw and said in a friendly manner, “This rat swarm is yours to control. It doesn’t matter how many you get killed. The Forest of Darkness needs to keep the number of rats under control anyhow. Sooner or later, the weaker ones will die.”

Linley couldn’t help but sigh inwardly.

No wonder there were so many rats of the fifth through seventh ranks, and even several that were higher. So the weak ones had been weeded out long ago. Those grey Stoneater Rats and black Shadowmice were probably still in the growing phase.

“Don’t worry. I’ll definitely complete your mission and let more than half of them die.” Bebe chortled, then looked at Linley. “Boss, how about…let’s use these rats to take over the entire Anarchic Lands?”

“Unify the Anarchic Lands?”

Linley’s body shook slightly, but then he laughed.

“Boss, the two enemy leaders are being escorted over.” Weiss Porter and Guillermo were being brought over.

“Guillermo?” Linley looked at Guillermo. This was a familiar face.

Seeing Linley, Guillermo forced out a smile. Linley laughed calmly. “This time, the Radiant Church and Cult of Shadows have really tested my limits. Because of our agreement, I had to just watch the battle happen and not interfere.”

Guillermo and Weiss Porter’s hearts were trembling.

“It’s fine. I’ll let your Radiant Church and Cult of Shadows also learn what that feels like.”

Linley looked at Bebe and laughed. “Bebe, from today onwards, join forces with Barker. Let the rat swarm and the human army attack together. Divide into ten units and begin to attack the territory of the Radiant Church and the Cult of Shadows in the Anarchic Lands.”

“Yes! I, Bebe, will definitely succeed.” Bebe intentionally puffed out his chest, then issued a very proper military salute.

Barker’s eyes were shining as well. “Lord Linley, don’t worry. With these hundreds of millions of rats, uniting the Anarchic Lands will be simplicity itself.” By now, even the elite legions of the Radiant Church and the Cult of Shadows had been destroyed. Who could possibly block these rats?

Guillermo and Weiss Porter’s faces instantly turned even paler.

They exchanged glances, terror in their eyes. They could imagine what was going to happen.

Yulan calendar, year 10022. September.

What would later be described as the war of the ‘Ratmageddon Wave’ began. Hundreds of millions of rats, divided into ten units, each containing the terrifying number of tens of millions of rats, began to move in unison with Baruch Kingdom legions of twenty thousand human warriors.

The hundreds of millions of rats and the two hundred thousand human warriors had been divided into ten groups.

These ten groups began to attack the Cult of Shadows and the Radiant Church in the Anarchic Lands.

Rat-type magical beasts of the eighth and ninth ranks could understand human speech, and in addition, some of the eighth and ninth ranked experts of the Baruch Kingdom set up soulbinding contracts with some of the powerful rat-type magical beasts. This made it even easier to control the rat swarm.

The rat wave was unstoppable!

The attacking rat waves, even when faced with giant falling boulders by city guards, were able to chew holes straight through the walls. After all, the Shadowmice and Stoneater Rats often ate rocks for food. They bore straight through the walls, then swept through like a flood into the cities. The city guards simply weren’t able to stop them at all.

Wherever the rat wave passed, cities crumbled and surrendered.

Even the Sacred Legion and the Shadow Legion had been annihilated. Who could resist such a terrifying rat swarm?

The ‘Ratmageddon Wave’ was only comparable to the ‘Apocalypse Day’ on year 10000 of the Yulan calendar. In addition, the difference between this and the ‘Apocalypse Day’ was that this time…the boundless rat wave totally listened to the commands of Linley’s side.

This news quickly spread to the O’Brien Empire, the Yulan Empire, and the various other major forces.

At the same time, this information quickly spread towards the headquarters of the Cult of Shadows and the Radiant Church. But what could they do? After all…Linley hadn’t deployed any of his Saints to join the battle. He only deployed an army of magical beasts.

However, the number of magical beasts in his army was simply too astonishing.

            PS.of course it’s self proclaimed, since I don’t know what others think about me!

  2. Ratmaggedon, huh? I bet you love coming up with these titles, Ren.

    I was seriously not expecting the entire army to be repulsed and the Anarchic Lands to be conquered in one chapter 0.0
    I bet the other Empires are freaking out about now. Well, two of them have Deities so maybe not those… can’t wait to read the next chapter and see the results!

    1. Results? Wharton, who, despite being a 9th ranker, hasn’t shown up ever since silently sitting through the very first war council, is going to become an Emperor, what else?

      1. Don’t blame Wharton too much. He is a King and have 3 kids to raise. Not like this war threatens the entire kingdom. The remaining cities, as well as citizen of Cod, need some management.

        1. I can actually pity Wharton abit. First, his brother calls him just over “oh, BTW, i founded a country made you king. Hope you are cool with that” Then, while he is sitting in a garden, just trying to spend time with his family, Bebe runs past him “HI, had to kill some rats, sooo… long story short, if anybody asks, you are totally the emperor of a superpower. HELLO LADIES”….

          How is he ever going to be able to take his on camping like he promised…

        2. I honestly doubt that Wharton has the ability to handle governmental affairs. They have Jenn, Zassler (to a lesser extent now), and plenty of officials for that.
          Babysitting, yes, that I can see. Considering that Delia, on the other hand, rushed to the field of battle, it makes it all the more hilarious.

          Probably, they just didn’t want the king to personally participate in potentially loosing battle as to prevent any reputation damage, but without a single word being said about that, Wharton once again looks like a wharton.

          I can already see how his legend is going to look like:
          Wharton Baruch, the sixth Dragonblood Warrior of the Yulan continent. In the year 9986 of the Yulan calendar, was born to the same father and the same mother as Linley Baruch. The end.

          1. eh, in about a century or two he will be a mighty peak level saint with good understanding of the laws, whichever law he choses.

            The study will see to that, bridging his poor affinity.

            His fate to be forever known as Linleys less talented brother, will however endure. (i know that as a pure dragon warrior, he supposedly have better potential than linley, but i do believe that the mage part of Linley do counter that pretty strongly)

          2. “Wharton? Ah! Linley’s younger brother, right?”

            Oh, the pain 😀 Just like this situation with soliders some chapters ago ^.^

          3. @Inbetweenaction
            Dunno, Dragonblood warriors traditionally rely on brute strength, but are fairly dumb don’t have deep understanding of the laws. I doubt Wharton can win against someone like Osenno even several centuries later.

            What annoys me is that Wharton is constantly advertised despite being the most useless of Linley’s companions. Note how every time The Church talks about the potential threat that Linley’s group poses, they mention Wharton, yet often forget Zassler. I know that Zassler also has it rough, but at least he has wits to show off.

            Wharton. In Fate Universe, he would a Lancer.

          4. @Dariel: we actually only know that the dragon warriors don’t use laws, we only that they didn’t mention anything about it in their books, and that they are considered peak lv saint without it. (sort of how most saints are, merely knowing superficial knowledge of a law makes a normal saint into a peak saint)

            Considering how hundreds of dragon warriors have ascended into a higher plane in order to study laws (main reason to ascend that they have told us), clearly, they have studied laws at some point

            I agree that Zassler is Underhyped, in my opinion he is second only to Linley, a Undying without laws might be a peak saint, but i belive Z has ways to deal with those. especially after a few years in the study. But any saint is a power to be reckoned with, so Wharton should be included in the danger assessment. (and Oseano is actually one of the strongest people on the planet)

            And he isn’t the weakest of the followers, that honour goes to second and fourth bro(whom merely wealds mayor political power and powerful magic), and his maids, whom rightly isn’t included in the danger assessment. (although maybe the maids should have been called in for the war, 2 lower lv necromancers could have been useful)

          5. Dragonblood warriors immigrated to the higher planes mostly to continue taking part in the slaughterfest, not to study laws. Remember Linley’s musings about how he’s more interesting in furthering his understanding of the laws rather than constant killing, hence there’s no reason for him to leave the Yulan continent.
            They also appear to generally have low natural element affinity (only two mages were born over 5k years), yet are able to reach the peak saint level without much understanding of the laws, so they probably have neither motivation, nor habit to study them in depth. The highest level of understanding they’ve reached in Yulan according to the manual is impose, so they’re no better than Dillon in this respect.

            Linley’s childhood friends aren’t really his followers, and maids are called maids, not combatants, for a reason. Actually, the fact that you think of comparing Wharton to maids speaks volumes on it own 😀 And the twins are pretty young too, while Wharton is already what, in his late thirties? Remember how Linley was at 27-28. Heck, it won’t be surprising if Wharton is falling behind Blumer now.

  3. I had a idea Bebe’s friends would show up… but this so surpassed what I had envisioned lol. What a great way to kick the night off at work.

  4. I guess they will now call it now Baruch Empire instead of Anarchic Lands considering how big it is. Oh wait does the Baruch Kingdom belongs to a certain empire already?

    1. nope, they do have connections with other empires, but that is merely political marriage level, giving the Barouch (gues we can call it Empire now) a great deal of legitimacy as a royal clan, what with marriage into one imperial family and one Ducal family, as well as Linley being recognized by one of the mayor commercial powers.

  5. Wow! I never thought my speculation about Bebe getting followers would come out true, and so soon at that!
    Nah, of course I knew about it.

    P.S.: I don’t know Mandarin.

  6. Bebe Ruler of the Baruch rat swarm, Grand Marshal of the Baruch Rat army. High Lord of Vermin. I can see it now. Soon after the rats help save the kingdom and the few eighth and ninth ranked experts and military leaders get bound to the high ranked rats the Baruch empire becomes the first place to have rats as the sacred beast/ status or military symbol!

    1. but don’t you think having a rat as a military symbol is kinda lame!! I mean having dragon or lion or tiger symbol would show mightiness or pride,and having a bird would show freedom but then having a rat means what??? cuteness..? sneaky or cunning…?
      no offence to bebe!!!
      Ps.he he! I’m just a lowly ninth rank arch magus how can I possibly oppose all mighty rat load bebe!! he he he

      1. It all comes to how they are viewed, right? We see Lion to be strong and mighty because he is one of strongest animals in our world. If on Yulan continent Shadowmouse is supreme, why could it not be military symbol for Baruch Kin… Empire? 😀

        1. If i got it right, a single mouse is one of the weaker beasts of their lv, and most mouses are quite low level, generally speaking. The danger is just that it’s never just one mouse… it’s the horde you need to watch out for.

      2. Well, it’s just perceptions. We have this image of a lion as something big and noble, but they’re just lazy, really.
        Hippos, on the other hands, are kinda cute, kinda silly… but woe the day you stand between a mama hippo and her kiddo.

        So we think the lion is cool… but the hippo should make a better banner XD

  7. Bebe Ruler of the Baruch rat swarm, Grand Marshal of the Baruch Rat army. High Lord of Vermin. I can see it now. Soon after the rats help save the kingdom and the few eighth and ninth ranked experts and military leaders get bound to the high ranked rats the Baruch empire becomes the first place to have rats as the sacred beast/ status or military symbol!

  8. After Linley going to such great trouble to make a mighty dragon the symbol of the Baruch kingdom (Empire), Bebe immediately changes it into a small, cute and charming rat. utterly harmless, except for when it is making superpowers quake in their boots…

  9. Wow The Apocalyptic Rat Wave… What a name…. xD go go Bebe show em who’s the boss!

    Thankfully didnt Guillermo die. He can’t die this early in the book.
    Thank you Ren and Donators

  10. Y’all forget how the necropolis of gods if about to be opened and probably experts from the other plains are gonna rain down on the Yulan continent.
    Can’t wait for Linley to train in his secret pocket dimension ~
    And last but not the least thanks for the chapter 🙂

    1. If they really forgot about it, then they are easly swayed xD But looking at words of War God to his disciple, Flan or whatever his name was, we should still have some time before it’s opened. Hopefully at least few years 😀

  11. Ratmageddon, this could be my knew favorite word. One a unrelated note, If only if I could, I would marry bebe. He has the best personality. >.<. I want a man like bebe!

    Chapter three is out of Coiling dragon: Untold stories, I can finally stop dreaming of Orson death, (grape juice, and pizza for everyone). Really, I wanted to make him burn in slow fire over sacrificial pit but that wouldn't been good story telling… would it? He not suppose to be the ultra likable True main character, he that guy who didn't and maybe shouldn't got his story told. This chapter is better and even slightly longer so please do enjoy and forget about the last chapter.

    1. seriously…? a man like bebe!!! of course I would definitely like a pet or a friend like bebe!!! but ……!!! hmmmmm even though I try to think about it, I have nothing to say!!!

  12. Thanks for the chapter RWX.
    Well, sometimes (recently more often than not) whenever i open the new chap page to read an annoying pop-up advertisement opens up. The contents vary. The common is the one saying that my phone is slow and needs to speed up and forcefully exits the chap page to open another advertisement window. It hasn’t happened since the last 2 days so now i can finally read a whole bunch of chapters together 😀 But I still felt like reporting this coz this can either be from the site advertisement or …well,can’t come up with an ‘or’ coz i was using my home internet connection and we don’t have add blockers but we do have a very strong anti-virus.
    This was solved two days ago when i returned to the hostel and the add blockers turned on.
    I don’t know if anyone else suffered from this or if its just me, i still had to get it out there.
    Anyways, Thanks again for the Chapter!! You certainly are one of the fastest+ most accurate translator out there. Keep Up the good work ! 🙂

    1. Hi IAmMyself, welcome to the community! This is with your phone, right? No Google Ads have popups. The problem here (we’ve seen it from time to time) is a virus which gets onto your browser. If you clear your Google Chrome phone cache, that usually does the trick!

      1. Speaking of old things, how come the site’s fluid layout keeps changing. Your losing revenue on the ads, because the chapters unexpectedly expand sometimes, removing the ads.

  13. Caladbolg!!! if you are at my hands reach I would like to chocke that little rat throat!!! of course I’m teasing you too, since I reallyyyy like to tease others!!!
    of course it won’t kill you you’ll just go to infernal realm! I’ll go ask zasler favour to bring you back as a zombie!

    1. Oho, you exam-taking 19 years old Arch Magus, hueh? Well, actually i wish it was possible, i would love to enjoy some fantasy world in reality, hah 😀

      Your Tsun side is showing a lot xD Or actually its Yan? 😛

      Mmm, i took a liking to you, i will keep up with my moderate teasing! Well, unless you really dont want to! Then just say so! But i will be a bit sad…

      1. urgh! * goosebumbs all over*,tundere now huh!!? sounds like you would be willing to take on one of my forbidden spells! if it’s too much for a little “rat” just say so, I’ll go easy on you and make you into a ‘meat paste’ in an instant! meat phaste zombie ha ha ha I would like to see that!

        1. ~~ *Nearly rolls over, laughing quietly in awe of cute reaction* Little Magus, my knowledge and understanding are boundless, i have traveled countless worlds and witnessed the unimaginable. If you feel so, i can keep you company in this little spar. Stand!

          1. *Chuckles* “I’ve known a young girl, a girl who loved her brother very much.” As he said those words, he waved his hand lightly. “Seiryuu.” In an instant, gigantic water dragon appeared. It rushed ahead, accompanied by a soundless roar, crushing against incoming spell. “She used similar Magic in her youth.” Dark haired man, looking as if in his twenties, laughed happily. Not one dared to challenge him in a very, very long time. How could he not be overjoyed?

          2. Oh you’re an otaku?????!!!
            then have taste of this..! silver hair dances through the wind.beautiful figure seemed like an angel descended from heavens rose up to the sky”water style- freezing blade shuriken!!! ha ha you impudent old rat,you dare to stop my spell let’s see how you counter this!!! ha ha ha” with a cruel sound of wind howling cold blades surrounded the dark haired rat beast,all that’s left to him is despair!!!

          3. Hmm? Otaku? Yeah i guess it can be said so! I love novels, good films, also anime, heh 🙂 On the other hand i love playing tennis, and enjoy other sports, like simple running, or horse riding (this one mainly when i was a bit younger, haha! Yeah, so old! Say it to my face! I know you want it?!)

            “Good!” Dark haired man proclaims, seeing as young Magus attempts to render his water-style Magic useless. Before reacting, he takes a short while looking at this unknow woman. He can’t help but smile in his heart; beautifull maiden also practicing art of war. What else could a man truly desire? — As if forgetting, Dark haired man seemingly does not take defensive action. He just stands in the air, letting sharp spinning blades approach. But then, suddenly, when they enter area close to him… They vaporize instantly. Not even steam of water can be seen, as if they never were there to begin with. Dark haired man laughs happily. “Stop holding back, i know you are hiding your true power. Arch Magus of Ninth rank at this age?” He shook his head, laughing. “Impossible. I wonder which realm did you come from?” He asked. For a moment, you could see air around him fluctuate, as if he emanated terrifying amount of heat. Even through he used water-based Magic, this man was clearly powerfull user of the Fire Element! Flames danced laughily in his eyes, it truly must have been his core affinity!

          4. Haha, dont worry, it will not run away 🙂 I enjoy both writing and reading, so nothing lost! I also got my share of firsts already, so no need to fight for it! 😀

  14. Well, the Cult of Shadows sure shot themselves in the foot this time. And now that Linley has that training room, he’ll be growing at an even more astounding rate. I’ll bet that he reaches Saint rank as a magi soon, and maybe even Deity in the next book?
    Thanks again for the chapters!

  15. **“This time, the Radiant Church and Cult of Shadows has really tested my limits. **

    Unless he’s talking about them as one group or their “alliance”. But then you would need to say something like “the Radiant Church and Cult of Shadows alliance” or “the alliance between the Radiant Church and Cult of Shadows”.
