Chapter 1998: The Power of the Bloodline
‘The power from the bloodline of the ancient Skywolf is indeed very powerful, except the power condensed in the ninth bone sword is only a sliver of it. If he uses it well, he can indeed claim to be invincible among his cultivation level. However, if he doesn’t…” Hong Mo smiled profoundly. The powerful senses of his soul had already enveloped the entire arena of life and death. He was already paying close attention to Jian Chen and the swordswolf.
“It looks like the swordswolf isn’t in Hong Mo’s favor. Since that’s the case, let’s just see. I refuse to believe that a Godking swordswolf with the power of the ancient Skywolf’s bloodline will lose to an Overgod…”
The battle between Jian Chen and the Wolf King grew more and more intense in the arena of life and death. They had already become blurs. They clashed so quickly that many Overgods were unable to see their figures. They could only grasp them through the senses of their souls.
It had to be mentioned that the Wolf King was very powerful. Although Jian Chen had already fought with several early Godkings in the past, they paled in comparison to the Wolf King in terms of battle experience.
As the captain of a group of adventurers, the Wolf King had experienced far more battles and life-or-death situations than many disciples of large sects.
Coupled with the Wolf King’s special bloodline and his body as a magical beast, he possessed battle prowess that exceeded most human Godkings. In the end, it led to the battle between Jian Chen and the Wolf King being especially difficult.
At this moment, an extremely powerful pulse of energy appeared in the arena of life and death. Five of the six remaining bone swords on the Wolf King’s back suddenly shone with a silver-white light. Extremely violent energy filled each bone sword as they stabbed out suddenly with lightning speed.
Jian Chen’s eyes narrowed. With a long whistle, he formed a fist with his left hand and struck out with the Laws of the Sword and Chaotic Force to stop the bone sword that shot towards his forehead.
Immediately, blood splashed, and his left hand was reduced to a mess. The bones in his hand had basically all shattered.
The four remaining bone swords emitted surging pulses as they extended over as blurs, arriving before Jian Chen instantly.
Jian Chen did not try to dodge the four bone swords. Determination flooded his eyes. He charged up in a straight posture and directly allowed his body to be hit. The Startling Rainbow sword in his right hand shone brightly as he cleaved it towards the Wolf King’s head with lightning speed.
Jian Chen wanted to trade attacks!
The Wolf King clearly understood Jian Chen’s intentions. Craziness appeared in his eyes as well. He was ready to trade blows too.
Spurt! Spurt! Spurt! Spurt!
The four bone swords passed through Jian Chen’s body at basically the same time. The white bones emerged from Jian Chen’s back. Now, they were dyed red. Blood dripped from them, where each droplet pulsed with powerful energy.
However, Jian Chen did not even let out a grunt. Blood dripped down from the corner of his lips as the sword in his right hand stabbed towards the Wolf King’s forehead with lightning speed. Like a flash of light, it arrived before the Wolf King’s forehead in a split second.
At this critical moment, the Wolf King twisted his head slightly, dodging Jian Chen’s fatal strike. In the end, the strike stabbed his neck. The stream of sword Qi almost severed the Wolf King’s head, only leaving a flap of skin that kept it together.
It was also this moment that Jian Chen suddenly froze. The four bone swords in his body suddenly erupted with power as if they wanted to tear his body to pieces. Blood gushed out from his wounds.
Chaotic Force circulated through Jian Chen. He pushed the defences of the Chaotic Body to the limit to endure this power from the bone swords as he swung the Startling Rainbow sword at the Wolf King’s back.
With that sound, the five other bone swords on the Wolf King’s back were all severed.
Eight of the nine bone swords were broken now. Only one remained.
Jian Chen struck out extremely quickly. After breaking the five bone swords, the Startling Rainbow sword turned into a blur once again as he cleaved at the Wolf King’s head.
“Killing me won’t be that easy. Let alone you, a mere Overgod, even if you become a Godking, you won’t be able to kill me because I have the power of the ancient Skywolf’s bloodline. It will be your honor to die to this power,” at this moment, the Wolf King’s voice rang out.
The voice was filled with deep resentment.
The Wolf King needed to pay an extremely heavy price and lose much of his vitality to use the power of the ancient Skywolf’s bloodline. He had never thought a mere Overgod would force him to a point like this.
However, he had no choice. This Overgod was just too great. He even suspected that the supreme Overgod ranked first on the Overgods’ Plaque would not have an easy battle against him.
With that, a force of destruction so powerful that it frightened even Jian Chen suddenly appeared. The ninth bone sword on the Wolf King’s back suddenly shone with dazzling red light. The terrifying power slumbering in there suddenly awakened.
Jian Chen stared at the Wolf King’s ninth bone sword, and he became extremely stern. He felt the presence of death from the ninth bone sword. The power that had awakened within it startled him.
However, in the next moment, Jian Chen gritted his teeth and continued what he was doing. He stabbed his sword towards the Wolf King’s head.
As long as he destroyed the Wolf King’s soul, the Wolf King would not be able to use his ability regardless of how powerful it was.
However, just when Jian Chen’s sword had stabbed out halfway, he saw a dazzling red light. The light was so powerful that it passed through the barrier around the arena of life and death and dyed the entire space there red.
The red light from the ninth bone sword shone brightly, right at Jian Chen.
Jian Chen immediately froze. Now that the red light had locked onto him, he actually felt like he had been immobilised. Even when he struggled as hard as he could and circulated his Chaotic Force furiously, he was unable to recover his freedom.
The presence of death rapidly drew closer.
To one side, Kai Ya had already completed her battle. She had slain a Godking elder with a sword condensed from the Laws of Destruction. Sensing that Jian Chen was in danger, she immediately cried out and charged over as quickly as possible.
Master Chanlong had also cast down his formation, trapping the other elder of the Swordswolf adventurers. Seeing how the red light had completely immobilized Jian Chen, his face changed as well. He immediately tossed his azure disc over.
However, before Kai Ya could approach Jian Chen, she seemed to hit a barrier. She was knocked away.
An invisible wall stood before her, seemingly splitting the arena into two worlds, preventing her from approaching Jian Chen.
On the other side, master Chanlong’s azure disc struck the barrier as well. Just like Kai Ya, he was unable to approach Jian Chen at all.
At this moment, the red light from the ninth bone sword had almost reached Jian Chen’s forehead. The situation was critical.
