Chapter 1602: Hell Demon

In the Doomed Star Sea, the boundary between the Void World and the Mortal World.

A grand ancient city made of white bones flew through the void like a land of bones.

The city of bones was called a Bone Shatter City, a great weapon of war built by the Bonedrudes.

There were a total of three Bone Shatter Cities that were named after the weapons of the Bone Emperor of the Bonedrudes in the Void World.

A Bone Shatter City could be considered to be a super warship. They had strong defenses, terrifying attacking ability, and could sail through the starry river like the floating continent.

At the moment, the Bone Shatter City in the Doomed Star Sea was full of killing intent as shouts echoed out from every part of it. “Kill them!”

Thousands of Bonedrude warriors had died, their bones shattered and turned into a part of this Bone Shatter City.

Meanwhile, many Bonedrudes were still fighting fiercely against humans and outsiders from the Spirit World.

If Nie Tian were present, he would have seen that the incantations and magics that those humans practiced were mostly evil spells the four great ancient sects regarded as forbidden spells, like those practiced by the disciples of the Nether Spirit Society, Death Curse Sect, and Blood Spirit Sect.

Those humans, the so-called crooked forces, had been hunted by the four great ancient sects and forced to flee from the Mortal World.

However, they were now using all kinds of weird spiritual tools and manipulating powerful Heavenly Corpses and Earthly Corpses to besiege and kill the Bonedrudes.

“How strange! Grand Monarch Ash Bone, who should have been guarding this Bone Shatter City, isn’t in the city!” said a Demon grand monarch, who was three meters tall without activating Ancestral Awakening or Indestructible Form.

The grand monarch had a single horn growing out of his head, and was carrying a large black stone pillar on his shoulder. His upper body was in the form of a high-tier Demon, while his lower body was in the form of an elephant.

A Heavenly Corpse Sect Qi warrior who was controlling heavenly corpses approached him and asked, “Grand Monarch Hell Demon, since Grand Monarch Ash Bone isn’t here, why don’t we make it quick?” 

Grand Monarch Hell Demon was a powerful Demon from the previous era. He and Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory had been called the “Demon Twins.”

Grand Monarch Hell Demon seemed a little reluctant. Perhaps because Grand Monarch Ash Bone wasn’t present, he felt regret, and said, “Alright. I came here for the Bell of Death. It’s a pity that I don’t know where the Bonedrudes have redeployed Grand Monarch Ash Bone. Without him and the Bell of Death, this fight has lost its fun.”

“Heaven-shaking Demonic Pillar!” He shouted as he suddenly cast the gigantic black stone pillar on his shoulders towards the highest bone palace in this Bone Shatter City. 

Demon light that could destroy heaven and earth shot out of the black stone pillar. Hundreds of Bonedrude warriors who were at the eighth and seventh grades were touched by the demon light, and were instantly reduced to bone powder that vanished.

BOOM!

Under the blow of the Heaven-shaking Demonic Pillar, the thousand-meter high bone palace instantly disintegrated and collapsed.

The Bonedrudes who had hidden there, activating their death bloodlines to power the death formations, died tragically in an instant.

“You may take care of the rest. Pulverize this Bone Shatter City thoroughly.” Grand Monarch Hell Demon said and flew away.

The Heaven-shaking Demonic Pillar that had morphed into a gigantic stone pillar flew out of Bone Shatter City and followed him.

He felt his victory wasn’t glorious. “It’s a contribution to smash a Bone Shatter City, but it’s a pity that I didn’t get to fight Grand Monarch Ash Bone. Otherwise, the outcome might have been different.”

SWISH!

Suddenly, Feng Beiluo of the Heavenly Corpse Sect unexpectedly appeared in front of him.

He bowed slightly and said, “Lord Hell Demon.”

Grand Monarch Hell Demon frowned. “It’s you. Weren’t you supposed to wake up the Chaos Behemoth in the Shatter Battlefield? Don’t tell me that things didn’t go well over there?”

“The Chaos Behemoth has been revived, and is about to be dispatched to the Doomed Star Sea,” Feng Beiluo said with a smile. “Your Excellency, congratulations on breaking a Bone Shatter City, one of the Bonedrudes’ great war weapons. This is a great victory!”

Grand Monarch Hell Demon snorted. “What victory?! Grand Monarch Ash Bone, the guardian of this Bone Shatter City, wasn’t there. Without him and his Bell of Death, the Bone Shatter City’s power wasn’t displayed at all. Besides, without Grand Monarch Ash Bone to protect it, who could fight against me?”

Feng Beiluo laughed. “Haha! Your Excellency, do you know where Grand Monarch Ash Bone has gone? Do you know why he isn’t here?”

Grand Monarch Hell Demon was curious. “No, why?”

“Grand Monarch Ash Bone was summoned by the Bonedrudes to help with a secret mission in the Spirit World,” Feng Beiluo explained. “It’s perhaps because they didn’t want us to be alert that he left quietly without taking the Bone Shatter City with him. He only took the Bell of Death with him, thinking that they would win the battle within a short time.”

Grand Monarch Hell Demon was very surprised. “Why did he go to the Spirit World? Isn’t it said that all its races are migrating because the energies of heaven and earth in the Spirit World have been exhausted?”

“He and your old rival, who has been revived in the Blood Purgatory Sea, quietly went to the Spirit World at the same time to prevent the Young Master from advancing to the God domain.” With these words, Feng Beiluo’s expression grew dark. “But their plan failed. They joined hands, but still couldn’t ruin Young Master’s effort.

“Young Master successfully broke through to the God Domain anyways!”

Feng Beiluo seemed very proud as he continued, “Upon breaking through to the God domain, the Young Master killed Grand Monarch Bloodlust and Ophelia. Grand Monarch Nether Channeler and Grand Monarch Soul Breaker also died shortly afterwards. Even your old rival and Grand Monarch Ash Bone are trapped.”

Grand Monarch Hell Demon was taken aback. “How is that possible?”

He had fought both his old rival Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory and Grand Monarch Ash Bone. Back when he had defected and fled from the Demon realms, it had been Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory who had been responsible for hunting him down.

At that time, he had only been a middle tenth grade grand monarch. He would have been killed by Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory if it hadn’t been for a certain turn of events.

It had taken a long time for him to accumulate strength and become a late tenth grade grand monarch after Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory and Ice Emperor of the human race had died fighting each other.

Nonetheless, he could still vividly remember Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory’s ferocity.

Grand Monarch Ash Bone of the Bonedrudes, who had the Bell of Death and a Bone Shatter City at his command, possessed outstanding battle prowess. Once the Bell of Death rang, it meant all living beings would be extinguished.

How many evil human spellcasters and outsider rebels had been killed by the Bell of Death in the Doomed Star Sea?

His duty in this battle was to prevent the Bone Shatter City from helping the Devils in the Doomed Star Sea, not killing Grand Monarch Ash Bone and destroying the Bone Shatter City.

This showed that the man who had dispatched him didn’t think that he alone could both kill Grand Monarch Ash Bone, who was also a late tenth grade grand monarch, and destroy the Bone Shatter City.

Now, two late tenth grade grand monarchs had snuck into his homeland, the Spirit World. However, their mission had failed, and they had been trapped?

He was doubtful.

Feng Beiluo smiled and said. “Now that your job is done here, why don’t you take a trip back to the Spirit World? Perhaps you should meet and talk with your old friend Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory.”

“Now?” Grand Monarch Hell Demon said, feeling surprised.

Feng Beiluo nodded. “One of Grand Monarch Thousand Spirits’ doppelgangers has perished in the Mortal World, and the three outsider races of the Void World that have invaded the Mortal World have all suffered heavy losses. The victory in the Mortal World is too important to us. With Grand Monarch Ash Bone and Grand Monarch Soul Breaker leaving, we aren’t at a disadvantage in the Doomed Star Sea anymore. When the Chaos Behemoth comes, we’ll be in an even better situation.”

“Am I going to the Spirit World to help the Young Master, or deal with Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory?” Grand Monarch Hell Demon asked.

“After you get there, just listen to him.”

“Oh.”

For some reason, Grand Monarch Hell Demon, whose heart was full of doubts, felt that Feng Beiluo had exaggerated Nie Tian’s strength. He didn’t believe that the Young Master, who had become famous recently, already had the power to fight Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory and Grand Monarch Ash Bone.

“I suppose the man wants me to protect him, to prevent Grand Monarch Eternal Purgatory from killing him, and prevent Grand Monarch Ash Bone from shattering his bones.” Grand Monarch Hell Demon thought inwardly.
