Not just the two Devil grand monarchs, but Shao Tianyang and the flame dragon high chieftain were flabbergasted as well. “What the...?!”
The sudden appearance of the five evil gods was like a hammer to the chests of the Devil grand monarchs.
The two of them and Grand Monarch Serpent Devil had been guarding the Forbidden Land of Devil Refinement recently, and were thus uninformed about what was happening in other parts of the Void World, not to mention the great changes in the Mortal World.
For that reason, they had thought that they had nothing to be afraid of, since they were only facing an early God domain disciple of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace.
They knew nothing about the revival of the five evil gods.
Now, seeing five scary-looking, Nether Qi-wreathed Netherspirit experts suddenly showing up behind them, they misunderstood.
Had the Netherspirits turned against them?
After a moment of pondering, Devil Monarch Heaven Seal said, “No, that can’t be it. I know every single Netherspirit grand monarch. How come I’ve never seen any of you?”
A strong shudder ran through Grand Monarch Purple Scythe as he exclaimed, “You... You were Grand Monarch Heavenly Spirit’s subordinates! But didn’t you die long ago?”
Devil Monarch Heaven Seal and Grand Monarch Serpent Devil gasped simultaneously upon hearing this. “What?!”
Nie Tian emanated violent bloodline fluctuations as he suddenly started expanding.
In the blink of an eye, he became ninth thousand meters tall.
Grand Monarch Serpent Devil’s narrow snake eyes were filled with fear. “Y-you...”
The response he received from Nie Tian was a low cry, “Life Drain!”
The translucent and sparkling thorns that had been spreading inside of Grand Monarch Serpent Devil suddenly changed, giving rise to a strong attractive force!
Wisp after wisp of Blood Essence that Grand Monarch Serpent Devil had expended great effort and thousands of years to refine morphed into rays of blood-colored light that left him at a terrifying rate.
His enormous serpent form rapidly shriveled, with strange mists rising from his bloody wounds.
He let out agonized shrieks, staring unblinkingly at Nie Tian.
Suddenly, a surge of bleak, moist soul power flew out like his forked tongue, and pierced towards Nie Tian’s sea of awareness like a sharp sword.
With a derisive laugh, Nie Tian took his time to summon the Spirit Scepter and held it in front of him in a casual manner.
Grand Monarch Serpent Devil gasped with astonishment. “T-the Spirit Scepter! How come the Netherspirits’ Spirit Scepter is in your hand? W-who the hell are you?!”
Calm as ever, Nie Tian said, “That doesn’t matter to you anymore. You’re dead.”
With these words, he summoned the Rampage Behemoth’s bone and called out, “Domain Split!”
Countless rays of blood-colored light wove into a giant net that caught Grand Monarch Serpent Devil.
Numerous gashes were inflicted upon Grand Monarch Serpent Devil’s enormous serpent form, as if he were being cut by a thousand blades.
The Rampage Behemoth’s bloodline power then found its way into his body, and started tearing through his flesh and bones.
At the same time, Nie Tian’s Life Drain was fully activated.
Under its wondrous effect, incomparably rich flesh power poured out of Grand Monarch Serpent Devil into Nie Tian.
Drop after drop of Blood Essence that contained immense life power was condensed.
The Blood Essence he had consumed to help Pei Qiqi, who had been set up by the Voidspirits, was being rapidly replenished through the death of this Grand Monarch Serpent Devil.
After all, Grand Monarch Serpent Devil was a middle tenth grade grand monarch. The flesh aura he had accumulated through his prolonged life was immense enough to make up for all of Nie Tian’s consumption.
Soon, Nie Tian recovered all of his consumed Blood Essence.
Then, as more flesh power poured in, it was devoured by his bloodline aura and used to build up the flesh power deposit it needed to advance to the tenth grade.
Grand Monarch Purple Scythe and Devil Monarch Heaven Seal fled towards the Forbidden Land of Devil Refinement upon seeing this.
However, they were only middle tenth grade grand monarchs.
The five evil gods, on the other hand, had already recovered their strength as late tenth grade grand monarchs. Plus, their fleshly bodies were every bit as strong as theirs as well.
The screeches and howls of the billions of devilish insects, low-tier beasts, and Devils in the Forbidden Land of Devil Refinement quickly died out.
Without the protection of the three grand monarchs, they had stopped sucking power from Shao Tianyang and the flame dragon high chieftain, and were waiting for their return.
Shao Tianyang and Baptista, however, were dumbstruck as they looked up through the ‘mouth of the well.’
Upon seeing the five evil gods revealing themselves, they had realized that the tables had been turned, and it had happened in a way they found unbelievable.
Why would Netherspirit grand monarchs take orders from Nie Tian?
Then, as Nie Tian activated his bloodline and instantly expanded to be nine thousand meters tall, both of them were completely shocked, their faces filled with disbelief.
“Is that really Nie Tian?” Baptista muttered in a low voice.
“The seventh Son of the Stars of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace!” Shao Tianyang said, his every word filled with ecstasy. “What on earth has happened to him over the years? It’s been such a short time, yet he’s become so powerful already?!”
Baptista was suddenly enlightened, and said in high spirits, “I see. It was his plan for my son to reveal himself and draw Grand Monarch Serpent Devil out, while those five Netherspirits, who clearly have special relationships with him, hid in the dark and waited for Grand Monarch Purple Scythe and Devil Monarch Heaven Seal to appear!”
Shao Tianyang’s eyes lit up. “You’re right! I was afraid that he couldn’t kill those Devil grand monarchs in the Forbidden Land of Devil Refinement either. However, once they’ve come out, they won’t be able to rely on the power of the forbidden land. Then, they’ll be no match for him and those Netherspirits.”
Baptista sighed deeply. “I really didn’t see this coming. I can’t believe Agaz has actually found himself a brilliant master!”
As they spoke, blood continued to rain from above the Forbidden Land of Devil Refinement.
Most of the blood belonged to Grand Monarch Serpent Devil, with a small portion coming from Grand Monarch Purple Scythe and Devil Monarch Heaven Seal.
One ninth grade Devil after another quietly emerged from the holes in the forbidden land. Shaking violently, they had completely cast Baptista and Shao Tianyang out of their minds.
They knew that the three protectors of the forbidden land were in major trouble.
Not a single one of them dared to come out of the forbidden land, but rather remained in the flames and looked up from time to time, thinking about how they were going to deal with Nie Tian.
As large as a mountain, Nie Tian spread out his flesh aura sea and descended into the midst of the three Devil grand monarchs.
Soon, the five evil gods ripped Grand Monarch Purple Scythe and Devil Monarch Heaven Seal to shreds with their teeth and claws. Drops of Blood Essence that looked like amethysts flew out of their mangled corpses and attempted to escape.
However, the evil gods conjured a misty cyan ward together that stopped all of their soul wisps and Blood Essence from escaping.
With a low chuckle, Nie Tian said, “Three middle tenth grade Devil grand monarchs. If I can refine the three of them, my life bloodline might be able to enter dormancy again in preparation for its advance to the tenth grade!”
WHOOSH! WHOOSH! WHOOSH!
His immense flesh aura sea spread into his surroundings towards the three Devil grand monarchs.
Countless wisps of blood-colored light could be seen shooting back and forth in his flesh aura sea like swift snakes.
As soon as his flesh aura sea engulfed the Devil grand monarchs, the crimson snakes of light split into even finer light wisps that manifested the might of Life Drain to its full extent.
“Such profound flesh power!”
