Chapter 1118: The Rules of the Abyss
The purple-haired, purple-eyed girl fluttered her vast black wings as she floated in front of Qin Lie and Tang Beidou, shouting in the language of the Abyss.
The girl with the bloodline of the First Devils had human form but was one hundred and ninety centimeters tall. She was even taller than most large human males.
Her tall body was covered in a strange dark purple armor which flashed with purple lightning as though it contained powerful lightning power.
Mysterious purple patterns would sometimes flash through her eyes. Those secret patterns seemed to be the direct embodiment of her bloodline. Even Qin Lie would feel anxious when he met her gaze, and feel as though his soul was being targeted.
The purple-eyed girl clearly dismissed Tang Beidou. She also dismissed that fire dragon.
She glared angrily at Qin Lie.
"Your Blaze Family has started to invade this level of the Abyss? What do you want?" she shouted in the language of the Abyss.
Tang Beidou, standing beside Qin Lie, looked at this high rank Abyss Devil shouting at Qin Lie with a confused expression.
Tang Beidou did not know their language, so he did not understand what she was shouting. He did not dare to move a muscle.
He looked with puzzlement at Qin Lie and said, "The language?"
"High rank Abyss Devils are not only born powerful, their intelligence is not one bit inferior to the most intelligent races." Qin Lie first explained and then frowned. He said back to the girl in the language of the Abyss. "The Blaze Family is not starting a large-scale invasion on this level, I came alone."
"You understand their language?" Tang Beidou was shocked.
"Yes." Qin Lie nodded.
"Alone? Not a large scale invasion of the Blaze Family?" The purple-haired girl stilled and seemed surprised.
However, in just a moment, she started to laugh. "Then you came to die!"
Qin Lie suddenly had a bad feeling.
"Bite them to death!"
The purple-haired girl flew higher into the air, then pointed at Qin Lie and Tang Beidou, ordering proudly.
The tips of her fingers released five bolts of lightning. The bolts of lightning burrowed into the bodies of the five strongest Abyss Devils.
Countless mysterious patterns flashed through the five bolts of lightning and seemed to contain an order of the First Devils.
After being struck by the purple lightning, eyes of the five Abyss Devils flashed with a purple mark depicting two crisscrossed curved horns.
The five Abyss Devils included rank eight Sharp Claw Devil, rank eight Giant Scorpion Devil, two rank seven Cave Devils, and one Hurricane Dragon Devil.
They were the five strongest Abyss Devils and belonged to different factions.
They had originally being fighting each other, but when they were struck by the purple lightning and when the purple marks appeared in their eyes, they immediately stopped fighting.
The five powerful Abyss Devils all looked at Qin Lie and Tang Beidou with bloodthirsty gazes.
Tang Beidou's expression changed and knew the situation was dangerous. He pulled Qin Lie and tried to leave.
At this time, a terrifying gravity field appeared.
Tang Beidou's three-level Soul Altar gave in under the pressure and sank.
Qin Lie's body quickly was pulled down like a cannonball.
In the sky, the purple-haired girl's broad wings flapped and emanated abyss devil energy.
The abyss devil energy moved and surged, floating in the sky like a black ocean as it seemed to forcibly alter gravity.
She used her bloodline power to manipulate the energy of the Abyss, causing the rules and gravity around her to change. She made it so that Tang Beidou and Qin Lie could not fly.
However, the Hurricane Dragon Devil, who was also an Abyss Devil, suddenly created a cyclone and roared as it flew up.
At the same time, the rank eight Sharp Claw Devil and Giant Scorpion Devil charged into the sky, their eyes flashing viciously.
They did not appear to be affected by the gravitational change caused by the girl's bloodline power.
"Qin Lie! Use your blood escape art to flee, I will delay for you!"
Tang Beidou shouted. Inside the sinking fiery three-level Soul Altar, enormous balls of flame formed and rolled down its walls.
At the same time, Tang Beidou threw out Blazing Profound Bombs from his hands that flew into the balls of flame.
They smashed towards the Sharp Claw Devil, Giant Scorpion Devil, and the Hurricane Dragon Devil which came up first.
"Boom! Boom boom boom!"
The Blazing Profound Bombs inside the flame balls exploded when the balls landed.
In a blink, those flame balls exploded, covering the area in flame and lightning, roars of thunder reverberating through the area.
A sea of lightning and flame poured from the sky.
The Sharp Claw Devil, Giant Scorpion Devil, and the Cave Devil were drowned by the sea of flame.
Within the flames, the three Abyss Devils roared, furiously waving their claws and tails as they flapped their wings.
The lightning, thunder, and burning flames spread all over their bodies, and caused them to shriek in pain.
However, they clearly weren’t severely wounded.
They continued to fly up despite the sea of flames. Soon, they would break through the barrier.
"Are you going yet?!”
Tang Beidou found Qin Lie who was about to land. His pupils flickered with flames as he shouted.
"There is no need to leave," Qin Lie said calmly.
At this time, he channeled earth attribute spirit energy inside his body. He used the Records of Geocentric Magnetism. His falling body suddenly stopped midair.
Then, he wrapped himself in earthly energy and slowly flew back into the sky in the modified gravitation field.
He rose until he was at equal height with the purple-eyed girl.
"You are not the only one who can call servants to fight."
He chuckled. He used the Star Door latent ability and summoned the Imperishable Realm Asura Race soul slaves.
The Asura Race soul slaves Qin Lie had summoned were not in the Void Realm like Curtis. But even though they were much weaker than him, they still exuded fiendish auras.
The fiendish aura contained a trace of Abyss Devils’ energy. Their aura was a result of killing countless Abyss Devils.
When they arrived, they attacked the Abyss Devils attacking Tang Beidou in accordance with Qin Lie’s orders.
"So it’s them!"
The purple-haired girl couldn't help but shout when she saw the Asura clansmen appear.
Clearly, she, who came from this level, the Frost Desolation Abyss, knew of these Asura clansmen.
After the Soul Beast had created the secret realm entrance connected to Frost Desolation Abyss, it led its Asura Race soul servants on a slaughter.
In the last ten thousand years, the Soul Beast led Curtis and the others to fight many powerful Abyss Devils of the Frost Desolation Abyss.
The Soul Beast and Curtis had killed even a few Lords of the Abyss.
As a descendant of First Devils, the girl who lived in this Frost Desolation Abyss was familiar with Curtis and the other Asura clansmen.
She knew who led them.
When she saw these Asura clansmen being summoned by Qin Lie, she was both shocked and stunned.
"Cadak let you in?" the girl said.
Qin Lie smiled coolly. "Yes."
Cadak. This name belonged to the Soul Beast… or rather the Soul Race expert that had possessed the Soul Beast.
When the Soul Beast invaded the Frost Desolation Abyss, it used the name of Cadak. After many years, the land where the joint invasion of human race, Boluo Realm, and Nether Realm forces had set up camp was Cadak’s territory.
The Soul Beast possessed its own territory here after fighting ten thousand years with the Abyss Devils of Frost Desolation Abyss.
The purple-haired girl knew of the existence of the Soul Beast. When she saw these Asura clansmen, she immediately thought of Qin Lie as someone from Cadak's faction.
"Cadak and the God Race are colluding?" The girl's eyes became grave. "You, a member of the God Race, want to invade Frost Desolation Abyss through Cadak?"
For many years, the reason why this level’s Great Lord of the Abyss didn’t make trouble for the Soul Beast was because it knew that the Soul Beast was operating alone.
The Asura clansmen under the Soul Beast's command were only servants, so the Great Lord considered them irrelevant.
Cadak still abided by the rules of the Abyss when he moved through the Frost Desolation Abyss and did not harm the foundation of the Abyss.
For Great Lords of the Abyss, the Abyss Devils had to endure endless slaughter to grow stronger.
As for whether they fought their own race or foreign races, it made no difference to them.
They actually held an attitude of unspoken permission and indulgence towards other races invading the Abyss.
Of course, the condition was that the foundation of this level of the Abyss could not be harmed.
On this premise, the death of some rank seven, eight, and even rank nine Lords of the Abyss was nothing in their eyes.
In battle, those that invaded the Abyss could also be eaten by the Abyss Devils.
Those Abyss Devils could grow stronger through fighting.
The Great Lords of the Abyss were happy to see that.
Due to this, they ignored Cadak's existence and his ten thousand year war against the Frost Desolation Abyss.
They thought that this would help the neighboring rank nine Lords of the Abyss grow.
However, if Cadak was in cahoots with the God Race, and took the powerful Blaze Family into the Frost Desolation Abyss, then it was a war between the Blaze Family and the devils of the Frost Desolation Abyss.
Whenever the God Race invaded the Abyss, they would kill too many Abyss Devils, and would even cause many races on the invaded level to go outright extinct..
Many rank seven, eight, and nine Abyss Devils would die.
This would cause disconnection between the generations of the Abyss.
This threatened the foundations of the Abyss.
Due to this, Great Lords of the Abyss would pay great attention to large-scale invaders such as the God Race.
Of course, if it was only a few teams from the God Race coming into the Abyss to hunt and gain experience, the Great Lords of the Abyss would ignore it.
The activity of only several teams from the God Race families would not affect the level of the Abyss greatly.
The purple-haired girl saw Qin Lie, who had the Blaze Family bloodline, and Cadak's people together. The reason she paid attention to it was because she knew the God Race's major families were performing massive hunts in other levels of the Abyss.
She worried that the Blaze Family had made the Frost Desolation Abyss their next target.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
