Chapter 1550: Purgatory
After arranging for Ming Xiao and the four Beast Kings to the Extreme Flame Abyss and throwing the first voodoo creature into the Chaos Abyss, Qin Lie returned to Spirit Realm.
He came to the Land of Chaos.
After many years, the Land of Chaos had resumed peace. The Silver rank forces, because they had made the same decision—going to the Frost Desolation Abyss—ended up on the opposite side of the six forces.
As the six forces fell, and Ninth Heaven announced its retreat from Spirit Realm, Terminator Sect, Heavenly Sword Mountain, and the other forces openly returned.
The forces once again ruled the five continents of the Land of Chaos. Due to their experiences in the Frost Desolation Abyss, they became more powerful.
Without the Curse Progenitor's curse, the Imperishable Realm martial practitioners of the Land of Chaos had a greatly reduced difficulty in reaching the Void Realm.
After Forefather Terminator and Duan Qianjie, Li Mu, Lei Yan, Feng Yi, Qi Yang, and the others all reached the Void Realm and built new level on their Soul Altars.
Because of the connection to Boluo Realm, and being able to enter the Frost Desolation Abyss at any time, the experts of the Land of Chaos would frequently go there to gain experience.
Many of them died and turned into food for the Abyss Devils.
But the martial practitioners who managed to survive the bloodbath of the Abyss Devils became extremely terrifying.
The strength of the Land of Chaos grew stronger by the day.
And Flaming Sun Island was the strongest force in the Land of Chaos, commanding all Silver rank forces.
The large teleportation formation set up in the Ruined Lands could connect to Sky Bearing City in Central World. Qin Lie took Song Tingyu and Tang Siqi to meet Qin Shan in Sky Bearing City.
However, the two girls felt they didn’t belong there and after brief meeting with Qin Lie’s grandfather, they returned home.
They moved between the Land of Chaos, Boluo Realm, and the Frost Desolation Abyss.
The realm entrances of Boluo Realm gradually connected with Giant Spirit Realm, Asura Realm, and Ancient Beast Realm.
The races of Spirit Realm could fight in the Abyss through the realm entrance of Boluo Realm.
They, who controlled the realm entrance, gradually gained a considerable right to speak in Spirit Realm.
The experts who knew their status feared them more, and none of the foreign race experts dared to dismiss them.
Through the invasion of Narsen and the Soul Race, the slaughter of the Night Ghosts, and then the domineering incursion of the God Race, all the races of Spirit Realm thought of Sky Bearing City as the holy land.
The Qin Family, Ji Family, and Sky Mender Palace who formed Sky Bearing City became the strongest power in Spirit Realm, and had authority to call on any race.
The Ancient Beast Race, the Giant Race, the Wood Race, the Sea Race, and the Asura Race were all firm allies of Sky Bearing City.
Their recognition caused Sky Bearing City to become the true hegemon of Spirit Realm, capable of mobilizing all the forces in Spirit Realm.
After staying in the Land of Chaos with Song Tingyu and Tang Siqi for a while, and seeing the situation of Spirit Realm settle with no opposing voices to Sky Bearing City, Qin Lie felt a bit discontent with the calm.
His Dark Soul Beast avatar stayed in Heavenly Yin Valley and guarded the cavern towards the Profound Yin Nether Sea.
The Blood Soul Beast avatar stayed in Giant Spirit Realm and refined Gutas and the other Night Ghosts’ experts after reaching rank ten.
After bidding farewell to his relatives, he went through Dragon Realm to the depths of Shattered Ice Realm.
An enormous starship was embedded inside an enormous glacier. God Race clansmen stood on the icicles.
Seeing him appear, Mia of the Profound Ice Family immediately walked out of the spaceship and led him in.
"We have waited a while.”
Once they entered the starship, Gan Xing and Liu Yang immediately appeared with smiles. They were not comfortable with the environment of Shattered Ice Realm so they cultivated in the rooms of the starship.
"Those old men are most likely panicking." Cang Ye of the Darkness Family still wore a mask but not her heavy armor but a pure black martial robe.
"My father and the others have too many matters and do not have time to waste here waiting for you." Mia smiled coolly and said, "Xuan Luo, Sister Cang Ye, and I will see you back to God Realm. Gan Xing and Liu Yang did not want to go and wanted to travel with you."
Qin Lie looked at this young generation of the God Race, nodded, and said with a smile, "Thank you."
Cang Ye's gaze was cold. She led the way to the enormous teleportation platform and entered first.
After her, Mia, Xuan Luo, Gan Xing, and Liu Yang all walked in.
Qin Lie followed them onto the teleportation platform.
When he entered, powerful spatial power exploded out from around the teleportation platform.
In a flash, he found the surroundings were filled with flowing light, and unknown grains were exploding.
He knew he had entered a spatial passageway.
He calmly looked forward and then his gaze turned terrified. He said, "Great Sage Tian Qi!"
The flowing lights turned into the face he saw of Great Master Tian Qi in Sky Bearing City.
The face looked at him expressionlessly. Only the lips moved. He said coldly, "Lieyan Yuan ruined my great plan. I can not let it go just like that."
As he finished, Great Sage Tian Qi's face made out of light exploded.
The lights fell in a storm.
Qin Lie suddenly felt the spatial power in the spatial passageway they were in become chaotic.
Enormous balls of light exploded in their spatial passageway and changed their destination.
They were like a ship in the roaring ocean, ignorant of where they were floating to and unable to change their direction.
This state seemed to only continue for an instant, but also a long time...
He smashed hard onto a hard rock.
"Bam! Bam bam!"
Behind him, some other sounds of impact came around him.
Gan Xing and Mia spoke at the same time.
"This definitely is not God Realm!"
Qin Lie, who was dizzy, suddenly reacted and unconsciously stood up.
He examined the unfamiliar world in front of him.
They stood at the top of a black mountain. They looked around and only saw mountain peaks similar to the one they were on.
Those black mountains were like sharp sword stabbing towards the sky, one after another.
Below was a black world. Above was a dark and cold sky.
They could not see what was on the ground or in the sky. They could feel this world was dark and desolate.
"Abyss devil energy, it is abyss devil energy..."
He inhaled the thin air and the Abyss Devil Race bloodline in his body immediately became lively.
He felt he could deploy his Abyss Devil Race bloodline and move in his Abyss Devil form in this world.
After his surprise, he suddenly found his soul connection to his two subsouls and the soul servants was completely cut off.
"What Abyss level is this ghastly place? This isn't right?" Gan Xing cursed. "We should be going to God Realm, why are we here?"
"You... you did not see Great Sage Tian Qi in the spatial passageway?" Qin Lie was shocked.
"Great Sage Tian Qi of the Spirit Race? You saw him?" Gan Xing was shocked.
"I saw his face made up of light," Qin Lie answered.
"Oh no!" Cang Ye inhaled deeply and said, "We ruined his operation in Spirit Realm. He is using this opportunity to gain revenge on us. Based on what I know, only two or three people in the universe are able to forcibly change the direction of the spatial passageway and guide us here. Great Sage Tian Qi of the Spirit Race is one of them."
“Where, where is this? Speak clearly!" Mia said in a panic.
"The bottom levels of the Abyss, Eight Purgatories!" Cang Ye looked around. "Only the Eight Purgatories can separate everything, and render the old people of our race helpless."
"Qin Lie, don't you have the Demon Spirit of Space and Time bloodline?" Gan Xing said.
"My soul connection with everyone has been cut off." Qin Lie shook his head. "Without a soul connection, I cannot form a star door with the Demon Spirit of Space and Time bloodline."
"We can only use the abyss passageway to leave this purgatory." Cang Ye inhaled and said, "The God Race, the Spirit Race, the Soul Race, and other races have waged war in the Abyss for countless years, but only in the upper hundred levels. The bottom eight levels are the Eight Purgatories. Foreigners are killed on sight. Only a rare few are lucky enough to leave."
"Great Sage Tian Qi is one of the special few that had come to the Eight Purgatories and left alive."
