Han Li gravely stared at the sky in silence while the two women’s faces were pale, faintly revealing a trace of panic.
There were over a thousand umbra beasts circling above them. There were beasts that were over twenty meters in length along with those that were only a foot long, all with wings that sprouted out from between their ribs. But regardless of size, they all looked fierce and malevolent without exception. However, these flying umbra beasts seemed to fear the overbearing pressure of the transformed Weeping Soul Beast and didn’t dare to draw closer to them. They merely stayed in a deadlock by flying in circles above them.
Han Li felt somewhat uneasy. From the greed revealed inside the umbra beasts’ eyes, it was unclear how long their patience would hold before they started to attack.
At the moment, Han Li was cursing the plump old man who had given him the information regarding the mountain. Although he did say that there were flying umbra beasts, he didn’t say that they existed in such large quantities. It was unknown whether it had been deliberately concealed or if it truly wasn't known.

Each of the daggers had a thin string of beast tendon tied around the hilt, connecting them to each of Han Li’s fingers. However, Han Li had yet to control ten of them at one time, making it an unprecedented display.
With his preparations completed, the umbra beasts above finally lost their patience and attacked.
The largest among them, a three headed umbra beast, suddenly let out a terrifying shriek and swooped down without any regard for the Weeping Soul Beast’s strength.
The battle had finally begun!
At the same moment the demon beasts attacked, the huge ape took a deep breath and shut its mouth before spewing a mist of silver light from its nose, enveloping most of the umbra beasts in the air. These umbra beasts immediately rele
