After the battle in Twilight Forest, Lize had a deeper understanding of her control in spiritual energy . Also with Marlene’s guidance, she could finally manipulate spirit energy to attack…

Undoubtedly, as a support type Cleric, her attack skills were quite limited . Therefore, her attack skills aren’t meant to deal much damage . This was something inevitable . After all, the cleric class isn’t known for its attacking power .

If they can’t forge a sharp blade with good steel, then what’s the point? Clerics just simply weren’t similar to mages who could conjure dozens of wind blades . If the significance of the attack didn’t matter, it would be better if they did not attempt to attack at all, lest they injure themselves in the process .

As Marlene harassed the Shadow Devil, Lize found an opportunity to finish casting her skills . Eventually, she lifted her slowly hands and held them in front of her .

The holy barrier surrounding the mercenaries started to withdraw from the mercenaries; a brilliant light congealed on her palms in front of her . Then, a bright golden beam shot out from Lize’s palm, landing directly onto the Shadow Devil . The Shadow Devil who was being harassed by Marlene couldn’t react fast enough to defend itself against Lize’s attack . It could only stare at the beam and await its fate, hoping that its defense would withstand the beam .

But it is a pity; it was a wish that meant to be broken .

The shadowy mist which was able to devour the icy swords couldn’t handle the beam . Perhaps the water element and the dark element was like using a tangible object to resist an intangible one, causing it to be ineffective . But the beam of light was the eternal natural enemy of darkness . Thus, the result was obvious .

The Shadow Devil could only watch as the beam pierced through the shadow mist, utterly shattering the mist to bits, followed by its shoulder . After the initial blast, accompanied by a burning sensation, the hole in the Shadow Devil’s right shoulder immediately melted . Since it was a creature formed by darkness, with a mixture of a corporeal body and an immaterial form, Lize’s beam of light made it suffer so severely that it howled in rage . It quickly raised its head and focused its attention on the woman that was emitting unbearable holiness from head to toe .


Pain and hatred overwhelmed the Shadow Devil’s senses and made itself forget its most threatening enemy .

Celia didn’t give up this chance .

The moment the Shadow Devil diverted its attention, Celia immediately stopped her probing attacks and struck with all her might with her sword . Before the Shadow Devil could react, the silver-white flames on the sword had already sliced right through its body, leaving a deep and dark gash . The Shadow Devil slanted to the side and instinctively attempted to swat this irritating glittering bug away . But out of its expectations, Celia didn’t bother dodging . Instead, in the face of its enormous claw, Celia tilted her sword and swept forward!

The silver-white sword drew a perfect and elegant arc .

The angel maiden spun her body around and beat her wings as she circled the Shadow Devil to dodge the claw . And the next moment, her sword slashed through the Shadow Devil’s wrist without any restriction . It wasn’t long before the wrist separated from its arm, disappearing into nothingness .

Done deal…

Rhode turned his attention away from the Shadow Devil, not bothering about it anymore since he had already informed Lize on the Shadow Devil’s weakness and attacking style . Moreover, Marlene and Celia seemed to be collaborating well together . If a Shadow Devil with full HP was considered a threat, then right now, with a hole in the shoulder and a missing hand, the threat lessened a great deal . As long as the three of them don’t put their guard down, taking it down wouldn’t be any issue .

And the surrounding mercenaries didn’t seem to have any problems . Even though some received injuries after losing the holy barrier, but currently no one was in critical condition . Despite fighting the most challenging battle yet, it wasn’t an impossible feat as they would just hang on till the end .

As for that guy…

Rhode’s right hand rested on the hilt of his sword by his waist . He narrowed his eyes and focused on the battle . The battleground was in a mess but he didn’t let his guard down . The Shadow Devil and the surrounding undead monsters weren’t posing any significant threat any longer . Now, the most prominent problem lies with the man behind the curtain . Since the start of the battle, Rhode treated this man as an ordinary devil worshipper . But right now, his opinion changed . This man’s danger level increased by two levels in his heart . A devil worshipper who could control a Shadow Devil was considered to be trusted by the Devil . After all, not all Devils would be so generous to send their own kind to the surface .

And since he could receive a Shadow Devil, maybe the Devil had bestowed him other abilities .

Not to mention, Rhode didn’t neglect his goal . The core of this battle wasn’t to destroy the undead creatures nor to defeat the Shadow Devil, but it was to protect Christie . And up until now, the undead monsters and the Shadow Devil were almost finished . Since Rhode had yet to weed out the mastermind, it could suggest he already lost all hope . But the thing that worried Rhode the most now was if he would use extreme measures since he had nothing to lose anymore . In the past, Rhode had met countless of monsters who were forced into a corner; they ended up transforming three times .

The shadow shook .

“Anne, protect Christie! Beware of the shadow!”

Rhode commanded while extending his right hand . Suddenly, a pitch black card spun and appeared on his palm . Rhode gripped and turned the card over and it immediately vanished into thin air .


Anne was startled . In front of her were distorted shadows, nothing out of the ordinary . But at this moment, Anne finally displayed her acute battle sense . She quickly raised her steel shield and revealed the little girl under the bright flames . Under the flames, the shadows retreated like the tide . Afterwards, Anne turned around and saw a pair of huge hands burning with black flames, coming for her face .


Anne yelled and raised her shield . A pair of burning hands smashed into the shield and released a deep impact . The man in black robe emerged from within and rebounded backward, whereas Anne’s body didn’t even budge . After blocking the ambush, she immediately rotated her shield, and in a blink of an eye, sharp teeth from within the shield, shot out .

Before the man could do anything, dozens of tentacles suddenly appeared beneath and instantly bind him up tightly .

This sudden ambush panicked the man . He retaliated by twisting his body in an attempt to free himself . However, soon enough, the man realized that it was a meaningless struggle . At the same time, Rhode appeared in front of him with a smile . A crimson colored sword in his hand shone under the flames .

“It’s over . ”

Rhode stared at the man in the black robe and spoke coldly .

And at this moment, as if answering his sentence, the Shadow Devil let out a miserable howl . Under the attacks of the holy duo, it vanished into nothingness .

Hearing his Shadow Devil’s death cry, the man in black robes frantically tried to untangle himself from the tentacles’ binds . Pitch black flames exploded from his body and burned downwards along the tentacles . However, even so, those black tentacles didn’t stop their movement . They followed Rhode’s command and bound the man’s hands and legs tightly, limiting all of his movements . No matter what, the tentacles had a defense as high as level 10 . On top of that, it was a creature of the dark element . Using attacks of the same element was a big mistake…

In the end, it was Rhode who caused the man to stop resisting .

In the face of the dark flames, Rhode frowned and pierced the man’s palm . This sharp and intense pain caused the man to scream miserably and also stopped his meaningless struggles . His scream sent chills down the spines of the mercenaries . However, Christie who was hiding behind Anne revealed a shocked expression after hearing the voice .

Not only her, but even Rhode slightly frowned .

“I didn’t expect that… Although I had already suspected… and that the culprit was always between us . But… this was still an unpleasant find . ”

As Rhode spoke, he pointed his sword towards the man and used the tip to remove the man’s hood . Soon enough, an old, withered face appeared in their eyes .

“Am I right, Village Chief?”
