Chapter 497 – Demon-Sealing Ice Formation
Translated by XephiZ

A number of Magicians suddenly appeared above the red-orange rooftop of the mansion, standing in lines as if they had long prepared themselves for the upcoming battle.
However, when the guards saw half of the hill razed to the ground, their eyes still displayed fear. Despite all the battles they had fought in their lives, they had never seen a creature with such destructive power!
The captain of the guards, Haiyan, already had a pitch-black armor on him. The magical armor was made of the substance produced from cooled lava and provided perfect resistance toward Fire. However, Haiyan’s body inside the armor was trembling subconsciously, despite himself. He was clearly aware that the armor he was proud of was merely a decoration in front of the Empress of the Burning Valley!
The flames burning on the Fiery Sorceress lit up the entire scorched land. The flames spread wildly in layers through the surroundings, covering a distance of a few kilometers.
She was floating above the ground, glancing at over hundreds of Magicians in the villa, yet none of them was capable of posing a threat to her.
Her gaze scanned the place and finally saw a woman wrapped in white cloth with braided hair standing beside Zhao Yulin in the attic of a building.
Beside the greedy couple stood an aged man. He did not have a beard, yet his graying hair was dangling, resembling the typical look and outstanding temperament of a cultivator!
“Demon, how dare you trespass into the safe zone!” snapped the man with graying hair furiously.
The man was the helper Zhao Yulin had specifically invited from the Mu Family, the Vice Chieftain of the subfaction under Mu Dao’s lead.
Mu Dao was the third person in line to supremacy in the clan. He had a high status in both the family and the society, on equal footing with a Councilman since he was ranked on the Xuan Ranking.
Meanwhile, the man with graying hair was Mu Dao’s right-hand man, a powerful Ice Magician.
Zhao Yulin was fairly close with Mu Dao. Initially, Zhao Yulin was planning to ask him to help, since he was a Xuan-ranked Ice Magician. Unfortunately, Mu Dao happened to be out of the country, thus he ended up sending Shi Gua, who was also an expert, over.
Zhao Yulin had no idea who Shi Gua was at the start, but when he learned that the guy was an expert who had half his foot in the Super Level, he immediately treated Shi Gua with utter respect. Shi Gua was his only hope to resolve the crisis!
As expected of someone who was very close to achieving the Super Level, Shi Gua seemed rather fearless despite facing the intimidating Fiery Sorceress.
“Fire Calamity Fruit, give me back my Fire Calamity Fruit!” the Fiery Sorceress uttered a piercing scream when she saw Zhao Yulin and the person in white cloth, Jiang Feng.
Her voice came out from Xinxia’s mouth. As Xinxia was a Psychic Magician, her voice was able to penetrate people’s soul and send a chill down their spine after it was enchanted with Magic!
“Enough with the nonsense, she’s injured; she can’t possibly stand a chance against us!” blurted out Jiang Feng immediately, as if she did not want the Fiery Sorceress to talk too much.
Shi Gua knew there was no point communicating with a demon beast. He immediately waved his hand to signal the Ice Magicians who were standing by to ambush their target!
Somewhere in the villa, eight Magicians who were long prepared immediately gathered their focus and accumulated a great surge of Ice Energy, using themselves as the foci when they received Shi Gua’s signal.
A glow in the shape of a white octagon appeared under their feet, like the shape of an enlarged snowflake…
As more energy was accumulated, the power of the octagonal Demon-sealing Ice Formation grew stronger. The hill was currently like a furnace, so hot that the people on it were on the verge of fainting from dehydration. However, as the eight Ice Magicians constructed the formation, snowflakes began to fall from the sky!
Snowflakes as huge as goose feathers fell from the sky!
The white snow gradually became denser, as transparent icy walls were constructed in the midst of the snowfall…
There were eight layers of walls in total, corresponding to the eight Magicians. They were freezing at an incredible pace, to an extent that the eight walls almost combined into an enclosed space entrapping the Fiery Sorceress when the first snowflake landed on the ground.
The Fiery Sorceress pushed her hand to the left, firing a fireball taller than a building at one of the ice walls.
The fireball blasted the wall into pieces, which scattered in all directions and melted in the air.
However, a new ice wall quickly replaced the one destroyed by the fireball. The Fiery Sorceress was planning to escape from the surrounding walls with a tide of flames, yet her body slammed into the freshly constructed ice wall in the process. The frost penetrated her body like swords…
“They have already prepared to fight to the death with you,” Mo Fan who was standing on top of the pine tree let out a sigh on behalf of the Fiery Sorceress when he saw the ice wall.
The Fiery Sorceress had taken Xinxia, still having a glimpse of hope that the couple was aware of the grave mistake they had committed, thus there was a slight chance they would be willing to hand the Fire Calamity Fruit over.
As a matter of fact, the greedy couple was determined to keep possession of the Fire Calamity Fruit. They had no intention of giving it back!
The Fiery Sorceress’ eyes flickered mercilessly. She flicked a spark forward…
As the spark collided with the ice wall, a terrifying blast took place. The entire place trembled violently.
The blast was similar to the Fire Burst: Rupture, yet its power was many times stronger than the Fire Spell. The fire tongues were like enormous serpents wriggling violently as they lunged into the air, turning the snow in the sky into steam!
When the ice wall broke into pieces once again, she gave Xinxia a soft push, returning her to Mo Fan. The creature who no longer had the intention to show any mercy was instantly engulfed in flames…
Her glamorous figure transformed into a giant meteorite and slammed into the water-blue barrier protecting the villa, together with the fiery serpents that had yet to disappear.
The water-blue barrier loomed over the villa in the shape of an oval. The thin layer of the water curtain stood no chance against the Fiery Sorceress in her meteorite form with her full power. The barrier first shuddered vigorously, before crumbling to the damage inflicted by the meteorite…
The barrier shattered into water droplets and poured down, completely evaporating before reaching the ground. The meteorite dove forward and crashed into Zhao Yulin’s beloved mansion…
The mansion was instantly razed to the ground. The fierce flames burned his antique collection to ashes.
Zhao Yulin could feel his heart bleeding, but he knew he would be paying a great price when he decided to oppose the Fiery Sorceress. Since there was no turning back, he could only clench his teeth and rely on the assistance provided by the Mu Family to eliminate her!
