In the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s eyes, Su Xing was merely struggling on his deathbed, however, he had the Purple Star Grade Liangshan Outlaw Token on him, which was a headache of an escape tool. Thus, the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon also waited for an opportunity to act.
“Watch This Holy Lord seize your flesh as a sacrifice!!”
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon sneered. Flinging his sleeves, nineteen black flying swords instantly violently rushed forth. These swords were pitch-black like ink, without the slightest blemish. The recessed sword inscriptions on the swords were deep, darker than even darkness. These swords endlessly wailed when they appeared, like devils and fiends baring their fangs.
“Life-cast Sword Chant!”1
Su Xing squeezed his hands into a seal. The Life-cast Sword Chant was a Star Cultivator’s most powerful ability, its power comparable to a magic weapon. At that time in the Void Liangshan, Su Xing thoroughly comprehended the might of Zhao Hanyan’s Seventy-two Outer Void Flying Immortals Sword. At that time, the girl had not yet used a sword array on him and already made him somewhat flustered that he did not block it, and the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s Sword Chant seemed to be even more terrifying. The sword’s body leaked a meandering black light, superimposing specters, the Ghost Qi sinister.
“Do you still have the skill to block This Holy Lord’s Nine Phantasms Ten Banes Capital Demon Sword?”
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon disdainfully said, his expression already sentencing Su Xing to death. His two hands quickly flew through hand seals. Star Energy excited upon the sword, and the nineteen black flying swords instantly swayed briefly. Each turned into seventy-six black shadows, covering the sky and earth as they madly rushed at Su Xing.
Within the forbiddance of the Underworld Prison Banner, Su Xing currently was in the so-called “no door to Heaven, and no road to Hell.” Su Xing promptly raised the Earth Shield, and this Nebula Magic Weapon faced the wind and swelled. Silver light glimmered and surrounded Su Xing within. Su Xing did not dare to be the slightest bit careless, promptly using the Purple Star Transforming Qi and Blooming Water Divine Thunder. The Purple Star Qi spilling from his whole body formed a Purple Cloud that rolled over and covered his entire body. The thunder-light sparkled, forming three layers of defense.
The sword’s sounds entered his ear. The nineteen black Demon Swords leaned and shuffled as they shot onto the Earth Shield. Countless black lines violently opened on the Earth Shield, and the Earth Shield’s silver light went dark in the blink of an eye.
Su Xing joined his palms, using the Blooming Water Divine Thunder to the limit. A massive several zhang sized thunder-light made the seawater crash with the sound of a thunderclap.
“Devour!!” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s finger beckoned, and the Nine Phantasms Ten Banes Capital Demon Sword’s specters combined into one, turning into a gigantic black sword. These Demon Swords of the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon were all secret treasures of the Underworld Heavenly Sect, a Supreme Grade Sword Chant. Because they were forged from “Black Prison Devil Jade”2 and “Infernal Devouring Blood Essence,”3 fed with spirits and flesh, it could be rated as a uniquely terrifying weapon. Although the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon had only practiced to the “Nine Phantasms” phase nineteen Nine Phantasms Ten Banes Capital Demon Sword Chants, it nearly could laugh in defiance of outstanding heroes. Forget about same stage cultivators, even facing a Supercluster Early Stage, as long as it did not encounter a mutually restraining thing, the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon could fight one if he relied on two Star Generals.
This was also why the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon was so savage. He had the means to be savage! And so this was the reason he dared to stay in the Azure Dragon Territory. In the Black Turtle Territory, because the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon already fed the Demon Swords such that people were alarmed, leaving the Underworld Heavenly Sect with no choice but to have him come to the Azure Dragon Territory.
When the Demon Sword appeared, the Nebula Magic Weapon Earth Shield was split open in an instant by the Demon Sword, and that Su Xing’s heart ached.
This Holy Lord of Draconic Demon was too abnormal, to destroy two Nebula Magic weapons at this point in one day.
The sword’s shadows flowed out. Su Xing’s Five Elements Astonishing Thunder might as well – his Blooming Water Divine Thunder also somewhat had attained achievements. Furthermore, it had gone through the Purple Star Transforming Qi, freezing the Nine Phantasms Ten Banes Capital Demon Sword where it was. The purple thunder-light and the Demon Sword’s edge shadow unceasingly wrapped in a struggle, intensely attacking each other.
“A purple Blooming Water Divine Thunder???” This was the first time the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon looked directly at the strange thunder technique Su Xing used. That Divine Thunder was like water yet unlike it, showing a vast purple cloud. The lightning seemed to be a magic cloud, a purple Immortal Thunder???
“Your powers actually make This Holy Lord greatly broaden his own horizons.” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s brows rose, “However, only relying on such a shallow cultivation, you think that it can block This Holy Lord’s Demon Sword. It really is a joke.” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon hand seal pinched, and the Demon Sword suddenly changed. The reason why a Sword Chant would become a Star Cultivator’s strongest power was only because this used the Star Cultivator’s own life as nourishment, linking together with the Star Cultivator into one.
The Nine Phantasms Ten Banes Capital Demon Sword suddenly scattered, surrounding Su Xing from all directions, trapping him inside. The Demon Sword’s shadows were illusory, genuine and fake, the real ones indistinguishable from the fake one. This made Su Xing unable to help but recall the “Devil Sealing Sword,”4 which was also this type, but incapable of killing an enemy. However, not only was the trapping ability of the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s sword high quality, the baleful aura on the sword was even more extremely eager. Just this baleful aura was already cold like bone marrow. If it was an ordinary person, they would have already been completely eaten by the Demon Sword.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon clicked his tongue, his expression seemingly looking upon a dead man.
“You have made This Holy Lord use the ‘Nine Phantasms Sword Array’ for the second time. And who was the first that made This Holy Lord use it?” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon ruminated, engrossed. However, he did not worry about this. The Magic Sword became even more Void Sword Shadows that tightly enclosed Su Xing. The surrounding space also was completely cut off under the disturbance of the Demon Swords, in other words, Su Xing currently was a trapped animal.
Su Xing did not reply, the thoughts in his mind quickly whirling as he thought of countermeasures, for the Blooming Water Divine Thunder shrunk little by little.
“It was the one your Azure Dragon Territory claimed to be the strongest Star Master, Xie Zhenyuan…it seems to be this name…Ha, ha, truly a useless fellow. This Holy Lord only used it and he could not bear it. The most interesting thing was that your strongest Star Master surprisingly contracted quite an incompetent Star General. Truly, This Holy Lord does not understand what your Azure Dragon Territory’s definition of strongest is…” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon sneered.
“Master!!” Yan Yizhen saw that Su Xing had been trapped by the Demon Swords, showing worry.
A water ripple struck her back, and several dozen water dragons trapped Yan Yizhen, endlessly attacking. Amidst these attacks, the River Dragon Li Jun raised the White Night Dragon Carving Sword and violently attacked as if it was a tsunami, sending out a water dragon with each cut.
“Worry about yourself, Yan Qing!” Li Xiangfei shouted, already wanting to take revenge for her little sister.
Yan Yizhen blocked with her hands. The Water Dragon struck her body, shattering her bones.
Moreover, the Nine Phantasms Ten Banes Capital Demon Sword’s shadows already closed up tight. A twisting black space took form in Su Xing’s surroundings. The space was like a deep pool, with the howls of souls. Astonishingly, it was the Nine Phantasms taking shape.
“That Xie Zhenyuan actually used his strength alone to undo This Holy Lord’s Nine Phantasms Sword Array. This Holy Lord wonders whether or not you have this qualification!” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon narrowed his eyes. Raising a despicable smile, he unfolded his hand.
The murky sword shadows suddenly drew themselves Su Xing to devour him.
And contrary to the frightening shadows of the Demon Sword’s Void Shadows, if the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon could see through the Sword Shadows, he would discover that the Su Xing inside was unexpectedly calm, without a trace of fluster. Seemingly, everything about this did not count as anything, and on the contrary, Su Xing lifted his right arm. Suddenly, those purple thunder-lights all around condensed to a single point on his arm, covering it in a layer of faint purple qi.
“Has he given up resisting?” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon jeered.
These purple qi thunder-lights fluctuated incessantly, gradually becoming dense. When it had become a deep purple magic cloud, Su Xing’s face showed a serious expression.
His whole right arm began to rapidly swell, and in the blink of an eye, it became two, three times as thick as it was before. A layer of glaring thunder-light even appeared on the surface, and under the purple cloud’s envelopment, it seemed matchlessly dignified.
At this time, Su Xing raised his head to stare at the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon. His eyes had a cold light, and he coldly read “break.” Thus, he drew back his thick arm, and then suddenly spat out a purple ray of light from his palm. After firing, it was an immense thickness several zhang large. Afterwards, a tearing sound was released. The light carried a long tail, sparkling as it flew in front of the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon.
Like a sharp sword, its high speed made people incapable of responding.
This was precisely the second Immortal’s Magic of the Blooming Water Divine Thunder.
“Divine Thunder Dragon Slaying!”5
As it turned out, the Nine Phantasms Ten Banes Capital Demon Sword had already twisted itself into a storm. Just when the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon watched with satisfaction for Su Xing’s death, he suddenly found his own Demon Shadow Sword Array actually was slow and unwilling to advance. Suddenly torn open by a crack, that purple thunder-light was right in front of him in the blink of an eye.
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s eyes flashed a cold light.
The Purple Thunder slashed, crashed, and his body turned into black smoke. The black smoke was cut into two pieces, yet the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon unexpectedly was able to dodge away.
Devil Smoke Shapeshifting Escape??
Su Xing thought, Fuck, this guy really is abnormal. The Divine Thunder Slays the Dragon just now was an extremely powerful type of attack magic from the Five Spirits Law. He condensed Star Energy to a single point to effect a breakthrough, but he did not expect the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon to avoid this sudden attack. Not getting rid of the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon this moment, even being unable to cause him any injury, made Su Xing’s Star Energy madly plummet.
The black smoke again instantly reconstituted itself. The corner of the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s mouth had blood, his face deathly pale. It actually was not at all without a result as Su Xing thought.
“How can this be?” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon pinched together a hand seal. He found that the Demon Sword was simply stopped in his opponent’s surroundings, as if something had scared it stiff. The Sword Array gradually was unable to make full use of itself.
Without a better choice, the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon could only put away the Demon Sword suspending them before him.
And then he finally understood what had happened.
Su Xing’s hand held a stone tablet, and the tablet released a golden radiance, surrounding his whole body within. These multi-colored lights were dignified, divine and serene. At first glance, Su Xing was just like an Immortal Buddha descended, which surprisingly made people feel like bowing in worship.
“What is that???” The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon shouted, stunned.
It was the Devil Suppressing Stele!
Ever since he took care of the Ghost Cavalry King at Stone Tablet City and obtained this Devil Suppressing Stele and the Ghost’s Godsbane, Su Xing did not forget to refine them.. The Ghost’s Godsbane was categorized as a Ghost Weapon, so Su Xing simply had no way of controlling it and could only give up. However, this Devil Suppressing Stele actually was a Supreme Grade Treasure, and Su Xing could use it. In the end, only after he had the Void Immortal’s Abode could he implant his Divine Intent, and he was already barely able to control it.
The Nine Phantasms Ten Banes Capital Demon Sword that devoured so much flesh and spirits and that now saw the Devil Suppressing Stele was just like a rat that spotted a cat.
“This time, the Sword Chant you have the most pride in is useless, then? It seems we are once again on the same line.” Su Xing coldly grinned. Forget his shivering appearance, his heart was actually secretly hurting. The magic energy on this Devil Suppressing Stele was rapidly draining. He had refined it only a bit and the power stored inside was used just like this. Originally, Su Xing had wanted to take the opportunity to use it on the Purple Star Grade Birth Outline, but now it seemed that things could not be helped. The next time he wanted to show off the Devil Suppressing Stele’s power, he would need at least several months’ time of cultivating it in order for it to work.
“You think such can make This Holy Lord not know what to do with you??”
The Holy Lord of Draconic Demon sneered, bringing out an Astral Gemstone. Urging his Star Energy, countless black ants flocked out from the Astral Gemstone. Instantly, they became an enormous black cloud that covered the Holy Lord of Draconic Demon’s whole body. It was in excess of ten zhang wide, and it seemed this influence would frighten people to the extreme.
What bug was this!!
Su Xing’s expression changed. This Holy Lord of Draconic Demon truly was abnormal.

- 地獄噬血精 ↩
- 封魔劍, I formerly translated this as Magic Sealing Sword due to what I felt was the ambiguous context, but now it is clear that it is called the “Devil Sealing Sword.” ↩
