In the Domain of Frigid Frost.
Since humans didn’t have bloodline imprints from the Primal Era, most of them didn’t feel any discomfort.
However, the spirit beasts that had remote bloodline connections to Ancientspirits and outsiders sensed an aura that made them tremble involuntarily in fear.
A wide array of powerful ice-attributed spirit beasts lived in the frozen realms of the Domain of Frigid Frost.
Many of them couldn’t help but crouch on the ground, no matter where they were.
All those that carried Ancientspirit bloodlines were overtaken by a fear that originated from their bloodlines.
Many Qi warriors from the Domain of Frigid Depths also noticed the anomaly.
Some of the spirit beasts had been viewed as their sects’ holy beasts. However, at this moment, they all kept their bodies close to the ground and panted heavily, not daring to move a hair.
There were Qi warriors that were hunting and fighting spirit beasts in dangerous areas that they referred to as restricted areas.
During their fights, many powerful spirit beasts that were giving them headaches suddenly started shivering before running back to their lairs and refusing to come out.
There were also outsiders that hid themselves in remote realms and had secret contacts with the local sects in the Domain of Frigid Depths.
At this moment, all of them felt throbs in their temples, and gazed off in the same direction with ghastly faces.
None of them knew what exactly was happening. All they knew was that an extremely terrifying being had appeared somewhere in the Domain of Frigid Depths.
That terrifying being seemed to have preyed on them since they had been born as a race.
“What’s that? Why am I feeling such strong fear? Even my Blood Essence is shaking.”
“Who or what in the Domain of Frigid Depths could possibly make me feel such strong fear when we still have the endless starry river between us?”
Many hiding outsiders hastily contacted the local sects that they had been secretly working with in attempts to find out what had happened.
Wreathed in blood-colored light, the terrifying shape that was large enough to devour heaven and earth crushed all of the freezing spell formations, frigid spiritual tools, and spherical icy spheres jointly established by Qi warriors from across the Domain of Frigid Depths.
BANG! BANG! BANG!
The power of frigid coldness that was trapping Zu Guangyao and the others was ripped to shreds.
The thick ice that covered the somewhat broken starships of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace broke off in large pieces.
Han Wanrong’s eyes burst forth with the light of ecstasy as she exclaimed, “Nie Tian!”
Xin Qing also instantly grew spirited.
“No wonder the grand elder places high hopes in him!” Zu Guangyao shouted almost too excitedly.
Then, as raised his arms and formed a circle with them, a blazing sun seemed to rise from within him, lighting up the void.
“All-illuminating Blazing Sun!”
The sun between his bracing arms emanated countless rays of fierce sunlight to neutralize the lingering cold power.
Slightly apprehensive, many Saint domain Qi warriors from the Domain of Frigid Depths, who practiced cold power, hastily backed away.
All of them subconsciously laid their eyes on the sectmaster of the Profound Purity Palace, Yu Suying.
She was the reason why they had been able to suppress Zu Guangyao, Xin Qing, and Han Wanrong, three elders of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace.
It was her who had overpowered and made Zu Guangyao and the others give up resistance.
Without Yu Suying’s help, given their cultivation bases, they wouldn’t have been able to trap them even though they were in the Domain of Frigid Depths.
After all, as elders of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace, Zu Guangyao, Xin Qing, and Han Wanrong were all at the late Saint domain.
Originally, they had thought that Yu Suying would make another move against Zu Guangyao to inflict heavy injuries on him and stifle his will to resist.
However, as they jerked their faces towards her, they were surprised to discover that she simply stood on the huge silver ship with her robe fluttering in the wind.
Her eyes were fixed on Nie Tian. Apparently, she was wondering about something.
The five evil gods each let out different roars as they once again released seas of negative emotions, which rapidly spread in every direction like a violent storm.
Simply by looking at the evil gods, the Saint domain Qi warriors from across the Domain of Frigid Depths felt their negative emotions surging uncontrollably.
As the evil gods truly ignited their evil power and spread it through the seas of negative emotions, peculiar wicked looks started to appear in the pupils of the Qi warriors from the Domain of Frigid Depths.
At this moment, Nie Tian, who had ignited his Blood Essence and was wreathed in raging flesh power, suddenly realized something with the Star Behemoth bone clutched in his hand and blood-colored light flickering in his eyes like crimson flames.
He sensed two brand new bloodline talents within the bone.
Both of them were Star Behemoths’ unique bloodline talents, one being Bloodline Suppression and the other being Domain Split.
Bloodline Suppression allowed the bone to use the Star Behemoths’ supreme bloodline to suppress any beings whose bloodline was weaker than theirs.
Almost all living beings that carried ancient bloodlines, including Ancientspirits, outsiders, and certain spirit beasts, would be subject to the influence of this bloodline talent.
Once it was activated, all living beings within a large range that met such criteria would tremble in fear and lose the ability to manifest the full might of their bloodlines.
Under the influence of Bloodline Suppression, tenth grade titans, dragons, divine beasts, and outsider grand monarchs would lose ten percent of their battle prowess.
Those at the ninth grade would lose twenty percent of their battle prowess, and so on.
This meant once Bloodline Suppression was activated, even if Grand Monarch Ice Bones was here, he would lose ten percent of his bloodline power, which would prevent him from bringing out his peak strength.
Kleist still had yet to break his bloodline barrier to enter the tenth grade. Therefore, as a ninth grade grand patriarch, he would lose twenty percent of his battle prowess!
This was such a powerful bloodline talent.
The second newly-awakened Star Behemoth bloodline talent was Domain Split.
As its name suggested, this bloodline talent allowed the bone to rip domains apart. It was with this bloodline talent that the bone had destroyed the frigid spell formations that had trapped Zu Guangyao and the others.
This bloodline talent could even tear cultivators’ domains down. When used on those icy wards and freezing spell formations, its effect had been like crushing dry weeds and smashing rotten wood!
“Bloodline Suppression! Domain Split! This bone has developed its own bloodline talents. However, it needs my Bloodline talent and torrential flesh aura to activate them.”
Breathing somewhat heavily, Nie Tian examined himself, and immediately discovered that he had lost a significant amount of flesh power after activating Bloodline Suppression and Domain Split simultaneously.
“The bone’s soul isn’t fully awoken yet, which means the upgrade isn’t complete. Perhaps there are still other bloodline talents that were unique to Star Behemoths to be awakened.”
With these thoughts, Nie Tian flew to Zu Guangyao and the others, clutching the bone, which looked like a long spear that could split anything.
Behind him, Yin Xingtian and Mo Qianfan stared unblinkingly at Yu Suying.
Both of them were worried that she would attack Nie Tian, and planned to do everything within their power to intercept her attacks if she did. Failing to do that, they would take Nie Tian and leave immediately.
The sectmaster of a minor sect from the Domain of Frigid Depths seemed to have a great deal of heartache watching the ice pearls he had gone to great lengths to make shatter due to Domain Split. He turned to Yu Suying and called out, “Sectmaster Yu!”
However, Yu Suying didn’t seem to hear him.
“Sectmaster...” One of the Saint domain disciples of the Profound Purity Palace on the giant silver ship whispered.
Only now did Yu Suying slowly come out of her daze and say softly, “Yeah.”
The battlefield was once again enveloped in a strange silence.
Just as Yu Suying was about to say something, her charming eyebrows came close together, and she sensed something. “Hmm?”
Mo Qianfan’s face suddenly grew grim. “It’s Luo Wanxiang!”
“Vice Sectmaster Luo?!” Upon hearing this, Zu Guangyao, Xin Qing, and the others looked greatly spirited, as if they had finally seen an opportunity to turn the situation around.
Manipulated by Kleist, the five evil spirits were the first to charge into this area.
Other than the fact that they didn’t have fleshly bodies, there didn’t seem to be any difference between them and Nie Tian’s evil gods.
“Nie Tian! They’ve found out about you! Come with me now!” Kleist’s thunderous shouts came from the distant starry river, as if he was afraid that no one would hear him.
Luo Wanxiang’s resonant voice came next. “Nie Tian has been secretly working with the Phantasms. He uses their nether tool and practices their evil incantations! In the sectmaster’s absence, I, vice sectmaster of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace, now expel Nie Tian from our sect. From now on, Nie Tian will no longer be a member of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace, but a traitor instead! He shall be put to death!”
“What?!” Zu Guangyao, Xin Qing, Han Wanrong, and all of the other disciples of the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace were flabbergasted by this bomb Luo Wanxiang dropped before even entering their sight.
Even Yu Suying from the Profound Purity Palace and all of the Qi warriors from the Domain of Frigid Depths were dumbstruck.
Was this internal strife?
A vice sectmaster against a Son of the Stars, during such a perilous moment for their sect?
Was the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace still salvageable?
A complicated look filled Yu Suying’s beautiful face as she took a look at Yin Xingtian and Mo Qianfan, who were just as flabbergasted, and shook her head.
