Shadow of the Abyss is the 4th chapter of Jung-man Cho's Witch Hunter.

Tasha continues to fend off Varete but is only able to last a short amount of time before he is defenseless due to the recoil caused by firing the Desert Eagle Colt Custom. Varete defeats him easily and leaves with Aria Godspell. Once Tasha, Xing and Tarras recover, they set out to return to the West HQ.

Tasha and Varete face off

Xing is seen worried by the fact that Tasha is using Desert Eagle Colt Custom, stating the fact that the gun's recoil is so strong that his body can't handle it and that it has the same amount of power as firing ten thousand arcane bullets at once. Tasha charges towards Varete but is attacked by Varete's supporter which he soon notices comes from the shadow.

Varete and Aria leaving Tasha

Before Varete could finish Tasha off, Aria offers to leave with Varete with the condition of Varete not harming her brother. Tasha tried to prevent Aria from leaving but he was too weak to do so. Before they left, Aria tells Tasha to find her before the curse causes him to perish. Tasha yells out in frustration after they managed to leave.
