The Divine Martial Stars - Chapter 716 - The Impending Divine War
Chapter 716 The Impending Divine War
The giant dragon-eating ape stomped on them. Being caught off guard, the four Heavenly Legends were directly smashed into mince.
It was not that the Heavenly Legends’ reactions were too slow, but that this ancient beast was too fast. Although it seemed to be cumbersome, as a matter of fact, it carried the Great Way with it and had integrated the Taoist Principles into its body. Any of its ordinary movements was tacitly in line with the laws of heaven and earth. It could move like a flash. One moment, it was still far away. The next moment, it was already right in front of its targets. When it put down its foot, the Heavenly Legend felt like a mountain was bearing down on them. As the Taoist Principles surged, the cultivation of the Heavenly Legends was instantly obliterated.
Huangfu Chengdao, the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan, looked pale. He steered his flying shuttle and fled right away.
The other Heavenly Legends also scattered in all directions, escaping with their own skills.
The sky and the earth both shook.
The giant dragon-eating ape’s footsteps were earth-shattering. With each of its steps, the space between heaven and earth seemed to tremble.
“What the hell is this monster?” Huangfu Chengdao, the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan, exclaimed after he had fled hundreds of miles away.
Pale-faced, he stood on the flying shuttle, staring in the direction that the giant dragon-eating ape headed for with a flustered look. A moment ago, he was nearly torn apart by the evil aura around the monstrous beast. For the first time, he faced death at such a close distance.
On the ground, there were footprints the size of small lakes and traces created by a huge chain being lugged along the way. The scene was horrific to the eye.
“Master, are you alright?
Some Heavenly Legends who managed to escape gathered around Huangfu Chengdao with lingering fear and wasted no time in displaying their loyalty.
At this moment, Huangfu Chengdao’s heart was also pounding violently.
“How could there be such a terrible existence in the world?”
Just now, that monstrous beast was only passing by. Although it had utterly no intention of hunting them down, they had suffered heavy losses. If the giant dragon-eating ape had considered doing that even just for a second, they would probably have no chance to escape and have been annihilated altogether.
Huangfu Chengdao had always thought that he was special. He believed that he was born with the blessing of heaven and earth and was bound to become the overlord of the Ziwei Star Zone. But at that moment, he felt that he was as insignificant as an ant in the face of a giant dragon.
“The strength of that giant dragon-eating ape has surpassed the King Realm. Are there really gods in this world?”
Huangfu Chengdao was extremely shocked.
In the Ziwei Star Zone, those at the peak of the King Realm were like gods, dominating everything.
Many once thought that the King Realm might be the upper limit of martial arts.
For countless years, the legends of the gods, immortals, and demons that circulated in the universe were considered more like myths.
Who would have thought…
Huangfu Chengdao stared at the direction the giant dragon-eating ape vanished toward. His expression gradually calmed down, then became zealous once again.
“If there are really experts who have risen above the King Realm in this world, it means that the door to a brand new world of martial arts has opened. One day, I’ll also reach that higher realm. Then, not only the Ziwei Star Zone but also the vast universe outside this star zone would tremble in my hand,” the young master of the Heavenly Deity Clan vowed inwardly.
“Young Master, what should we do next?” A Heavenly Legend asked tentatively.
Everyone could tell that the young master was in a bad mood just now.
Unexpectedly, Huangfu Chengdao suddenly burst into laughter and said, “We should continue to look for Li Yidao’s whereabouts and kill him, of course. Wu Yong, contact the Witchcraft Saint and tell him that I accept his terms. Ask him to calculate Li Yidao’s whereabouts as soon as possible.”
“What sort of monster is that?”
Feng Xingyun the Nether Ghost looked into the distance with lingering fear.
In the sky and on the earth, there were still colorful flames burning. Even the space was being burnt like thin ice, in which black holes appeared one after another and could not be mended in a short time.
A nine-headed divine bird with colorful tail feathers just flew past and disappeared into the distant sky.
Everything in the path of the divine bird was set on fire.
If Feng Xingyun hadn’t escaped in time, he’d have probably been caught by the colorful flames and burnt to a cinder.
“That was a divine bird with the strength beyond the King Realm. Good heavens, is there really a creature superior to the King Realm in this world?”
He was extremely astounded.
What shocked him even more was that he vaguely saw that the nine-headed divine bird with colorful tail feathers was carrying a huge colorful throne on its back. It was a gigantic, man-made throne. But the throne was empty. There was no god sitting on it… Still, it indicated that it was probably someone’s mount.
“What kind of person could keep a divine bird superior to the King Realm as a mount?”
Feng Xingyun felt that his outlook on the world was about to be overturned.
The more he thought about it, the more terrified he felt.
Moreover, judging by the tracks of the nine-headed divine bird with colorful tail feathers, it wasn’t flying aimlessly. Instead, it seemed to be rushing somewhere. This sort of gave food for thought.
“D*mn, one more Black Snake Coin of mine has been wasted.”
Wei Sinian the Blighting Dark Demon, the young master of the Demonic Snake Abyss, was still in shock.
Just now, he was almost killed by a giant headless corpse.
It was a corpse that was thousands of meters high. It had no head and no vitality at all. A horrible stench of a decayed body was swirling around it, especially at the cut on its neck, from which a fishy smell squirted. In its one hand was an ancient mottled giant stone ax. In its other hand was a huge straw shield. Step by step, it marched forward with an ancient battle cry coming from its belly button.
Several Heavenly Legends whom Wei Sinian the Blighting Dark Demon had taken in as his subordinates were accidentally contaminated by the corpse’s aura. Instantly, they dissolved into black pus and died.
Wei Sinian, however, reacted quickly. He used a Black Snake Coin to forcefully increase his speed and ran far away enough before the corpse’s aura caught him. That was why he survived.
“It’s just a corpse. Yet, it has such formidable power. It must be superior to the King’s Realm… How horrifying could it be when it was alive?”
Such a scene completely overturned Wei Sinian’s understanding of the strength levels in this star zone.
Moreover, the most crucial thing was that it was absolute that no books, files, or intelligence about theHeavenly Fox Secret Realm had ever mentioned that there was such a terrible existence in the secret realm.
“Now that no one had seen it in the past, why has it appeared now?”
Wei Sinian gazed in the direction where the corpse vanished.
He felt that the giant corpse seemed to be hurrying to a battlefield.
Li Mu looked up at the sea of clouds at the top of the towering pillar of white bones.
The sea of clouds, which had been rolling slowly before, suddenly surged like boiling water.
Blood was boiling.
A bad feeling suddenly washed over him.
It seemed that something was going to happen.
“The dead god is going to fight,” the Gold Silver King abruptly remarked with horror in his eyes.
“What?” Li Mu looked at it.
The Gold and Silver King said, “My great-grandfather’s great-grandfather’s grandfather once said that on the pillar of white bones, the dead god would come out of the area filled with white bones every other era to fight once. He would sweep away his enemies and suppress demons and monsters… Does this mean that the god is going to wage war again? If so, it would be big. This world will be destroyed. Big Brother, let’s leave here as soon as possible. No matter how precious the magic herb is, it’s not as valuable as your life.”
“War? For what?” Li Mu couldn’t help but ask.
The Gold and Silver King said, “That I don’t know either. That’s not something secular cultivators can understand. It’s said that it’s to protect something or to suppress something. Big Brother, did you hear me or not? You should run. The Divine War is about to break out.”
Li Mu nodded and said, “Well, yeah, gotta run for my life.”
The Gold and Silver King nodded repeatedly and said, “Big Brother, ride me. I’ll take you to soar.”
Li Mu felt rather speechless.
“Sh*t! What you said was concise. Your speed is very fast. I surely can ride you and flee by air. But your voice happens to be a sweet female voice. It makes those words a little embarrassing to hear.”
Li Mu shook his head and said, “Before I leave, I must get the Soul-replenishing Heavenly Herb.”
“Big Brother, are you crazy?” The Gold and Silver King said incredulously. “Once the Divine War really starts, even if we are not involved in it, the slightest rogue energy waves alone can kill us. Don’t court death.”
Li Mu said, “The Divine War hasn’t started yet, has it? I gotta get the magic herb.”
Looking at the blood-colored sea of rolling clouds on the top of the pillar of whites bones, Li Mu was no longer hesitant.
He played the “relatively safe route” told by the blood bats in his head before striding straight toward the area with white bones.
“Big Brother! Big Brother?” The Gold and Silver King was a little baffled.
“What do I do now?”
Chewing the side of its cheek, it hesitated for a moment. Eventually, it decided to follow Li Mu.
It was worth the risk.
Because Li Mu had the secret that could help it throw off the shackles in evolvement.
If it wanted to really reverse evolution and evolve to realms higher than the King Realm, it had to rely on Li Mu.
However, once it encountered real danger and couldn’t fight it head-on, it would immediately abandon the human being and flee. After all, though evolvement was important, survival was equally important.
The tens of millions of blood bats in the surroundings instinctively followed their king into the area with white bones.
Li Mu looked back and was immediately startled. He said, “Don’t you all follow me in. It’s too big a fuss. What if we catch the attention of the Resentful Spirits?”
After giving it a thought, the Gold and Silver King agreed. In the end, it picked out several thousand elite blood bats and set them in small groups. Then, with those blood bats following behind, the Gold and Silver King and Li Mu entered the area with white bones.
The moment he stepped into the area with white bones, Li Mu felt an inexplicable chill penetrated his bones and permeated the air. Although the sun was still shining brightly in the sky, he felt this place, which was only a single step away from the ordinary land, was in the dead of winter.
This kind of gloominess was slightly different from the Yin Qi and Ghost Qi on the Ghost Rally Star.
Li Mu turned on his Cultivation Method to resist the eerie, invisible chill by preventing it from entering his body. Then, he cautiously headed forward.
The ground was covered with dead leaves.
The surrounding trees and weeds looked rather lifeless, as though they had been frosted.
Observing carefully, Li Mu felt that this place somewhat lacked vitality.
The further he went, the more obvious this phenomenon became.
Later on, there were more dead leaves and fewer and fewer plants.
Li Mu found it quite familiar, as though he had returned to the barren mountain where the Tomb of the God of Sin lay.
It was a world with nothing but death.
