Chapter 798: God Corpses’ Soul Returning
“Their souls are returning.”
Xue Li raised his head to look into the sky, his deep red eyes filled with shock.
Including Mo Lingye, the Nirvana Realm martial practitioners of Blood Fiend Sect had puzzled expressions.
“The remnant souls of the eight god corpses were not truly destroyed, they were roaming about in the outer space. Right now… their remnant souls and thoughts found the accurate location of their true bodies. Attracted by the Demon Sealing Tombstone, they have returned from some unknown places in the outer space.”
Xue Li took a deep breath, his eyes filled with excitement. “The returning remnant souls don’t just have comprehension of the martial way, they also hold their past experiences. This time, unlike the last it happened, it is not just the battle soul projection.”
Two years ago, powerful battle soul crystals and projection had come from outside when something was happening at the Setting Sun Islands.
Those soul pieces filled with battle instinct caused the power of the eight god corpses to skyrocket.
Alas, the battle soul projections were purely battle instinct. They may have increased the god corpses’ strength in battle, but they couldn’t allow them to truly come alive.
“Big Brother Xue, are you saying… they may wake up this time? Truly wake up?” Mo Jun was shocked.
“That is what I feel.” Xue Li nodded and changed the topic. “Only Qin Lie, who is connected to them, truly knows.”
When he said this, everyone’s gaze unconsciously gathered on Qin Lie.
Qin Lie was underneath the Demon Sealing Tombstone, at the center of the eight god corpses as he looked into the sky.
He could see the mirage-like scene turn into a storm of light and fall among the heads of the god corpses.
He could feel astounding waves rise inside the soul consciousness of the eight god corpses.
The scenes came together, merged and formed a complete whole in the minds of the god corpses.
Memories connected in the minds of the god corpses and became clearer and complete.
Puzzlement rose in the eyes of the eight god corpses.
Qin Lie felt with his mind and his soul. He found that the flucuations in the minds of the eight god corpses gradually became wild.
“It is different this time.”
A long time ago, Qin Lie nodded, a smile at the corner of his lips.
“They will really wake up?” Xue Li’s brow moved.
“Most likely.” Qin Lie gave his answer.
“Then will they become even more powerful?” Xue Li asked.
“If there are no incidents, yes.” Qin Lie grinned.
“Alright!” Xue Li’s expression became alert. His eyes flashed with bloody light. “This time, we will give Wen Bin a surprise!”
“Everyone, prepare! We will fight against Wen Bin and others in three days!” Mo Jun shouted.
Blood Fiend Sect’s martial practitioners cheered in response.
“What? Illusory Demon Sect’s Wen Bin is forcing Blood Fiend Sect and Flaming Sun Island to leave the Setting Sun Islands? Is the news confirmed?”
Xu Ran looked dazedly at Shen Yue with a slight smile as if he would laugh.
“Yu Lingwei is fighting against the Blue Ghouls. Illusory Demon Sect’s front isn’t as strong. At this precarious time, they should do their best to mend their relationship with Qin Lie and Blood Fiend Sect to get their help and Blazing Profound Bombs. And yet, they are making even more trouble for them? Little Yue, are you sure?”
Lei Yan, Shen Kui, and Tong Zhenzhen also found this hard to believe.
At this time, Forefather Terminator was recovering his power in seclusion and wasn’t going to go to Prism Continent to make trouble for the Heaven Ghoul Race.
Over on Prism Continent, the Heaven Ghouls were docile and didn’t dare to leave the continent.
The two were in a state of mutual ceasefire.
On the other hand, the Earth Ghouls on the Heavenly Calamity Continent and the Blue Ghouls that attacked Illusory Demon Sect were making bigger and bolder moves.
Over on the Heavenly Calamity Continent, the three families were allied together. With the support of Black Voodoo Cult, they had the upper hand against the Earth Ghouls.
Illusory Demon Sect’s side clearly was having trouble fending off the Blue Ghoul Race.
Terminator Sect, Heavenly Sword Mountain, Ten Thousand Beast Mountain, and Celestial Artifact Sect had suffered greatly because of the Prism Continent’s battle. Since their Soul Altar experts had been wounded, they didn’t go help Illusory Demon Sect.
In truth, the three ghoul races had suffered heavy losses in the last battle. The Blue Ghouls that were attacking Illusory Demon Sect were not extremely strong.
The four forces felt that Illusory Demon Sect had the ability to face the Blue Ghouls alone. Because they wanted to recover their strength to fight against the main force of the three ghoul races later on, the four were not in a hurry to interfere.
“I have obtained information that Yu Lingwei will step down from the position of sect master after forcing back the Blue Ghouls. Wen Bin will take over her position and become the new sect master of Illusory Demon Sect.” Shen Yue’s expression was calm as she explained softly, “Wen Bin has always wanted to take over Blood Fiend Sect and make them a Copper force under Illusory Demon Sect. He was discontent with Yu Lingwei’s preferential treatment of Blood Fiend Sect.”
“Before he takes control, he wants to use Blood Fiend Sect to show his authority and also obtain the Gray Island artificers.”
“He is trying to get momentum.”
“Momentum? Trying to gain momentum when the Blue Ghouls are invading?” Xu Ran shook his head with a strange expression. “Compared to Ten Thousand Beast Mountain, Heavenly Sword Mountain, Black Voodoo Cult and Celestial Artifact Sect, Illusory Demon Sect is only slightly weaker. However, their internal conflicts are severe. It seems that Illusory Demon Sect will decline. This Wen Bin wants to get the position but doesn’t care about the bigger picture. With him at Illusory Demon Sect, I think that Black Voodoo Cult will push them out of the Heavenly Slaughter Continent sooner or later.”
“Qin Lie’s Flaming Sun Island is also there.” Shen Yue reminded.
“Old Shen, what do you think?” Xu Ran asked.
“Little Yue, get someone to tell Qin Lie that we will empty out a territory slightly smaller than the Scarlet Tide Continent around Terminator Sect for his Flaming Sun Island and Blood Fiend Sect to reside in.” Shen Kui brushed his beard and smiled slyly. “If Flaming Sun Island comes, we will immediately ally together and announce it to the world!”
“What about Blood Fiend Sect?” Shen Yue asked.
“Blood Fiend Sect does not have skilled artificers or a close relationship with Terminator Sect. I… don’t think we bother with them.” Shen Kui narrowed his eyes. “For us, Qin Lie and his artificers are most important.”
“Your grandfather is correct.”
“Qin Lie, someone from Terminator Sect messaged me. He said that if we retreat from here, they will arrange for a continent about the size of the Scarlet Tide Continent for us, and immediately ally with us,” Song Tingyu said softly.
At this time, Xue Li and the members of Blood Fiend Sect were preparing to fight.
Lang Xie was on Blood Island and communicating with Gray Island for them to forge more spirit armors.
Qin Lie sat on Blood Island where the eight god corpses were. He had been silent for the entire day as he pondered over the matter.
“Do not reply. Illusory Demon Sect will not be able to defeat the Setting Sun Islands. Also, I’m sure that after this battle, Illusory Demon Sect will not dare to challenge us again!” Qin Lie said coldly.
“You really have so much confidence?” Song Tingyu was shocked.
“We can afford to lose! But Illusory Demon Sect cannot!” Qin Lie said gravely.
“Alright.” Song Tingyu nodded softly and then stopped trying to persuade him. She didn’t want to disturb Qin Lie any longer. “I’m off to make some preparations.” She turned around and left.
Qin Lie looked at the eight god corpses.
After one day and night of the remnant souls returning, the eyes of the eight god corpses were closed. Standing like eight pillars supporting the sky, they seemed to be slowly assimilating the memories of those remnant souls.
Many fragmented divine characters flashed like stars on their bodies’ surface.
Qin Lie had his hand on the Demon Sealing Tombstone. He occasionally looked at the eight god corpses and used the Demon Sealing Tombstone to observe their state.
He knew that when the eight god corpses opened their eyes again, everything would be different.
“Tell Lang Xie to not let anyone disturb me in the next two days. I will be cultivating a secret art.” Summoning a blood guard, Qin Lie ordered.
“Understood.” The blood guard silently retreated.
Putting down the Demon Sealing Tombstone, Qin Lie slowly closed his eyes. He quickly went through the cultivation nuances of the Ring of the Burning Sun.
Focusing with his mind, he activated his bloodline power and boiled his blood.
Small fragmented blaze divine characters rose out of his boiling hot blood. The divine characters were like stars that flashed through his meridians, sinews, bones, and organs, giving off destructive heat and light.
This was noon, when the flame power of the sun was greatest. As he used his bloodline power to channel the Ring of the Burning Sun, the blaze divine characters inside his body seemed to be shouting excitedly.
An extremely strong attractive force appeared from inside his body.
Above the Setting Sun Islands, the billions of rays of sun light seemed to be attracted, forming into a line and shining down from the distant firmament.
A crimson pillar of fire seemed to come from Qin Lie’s head and connect with the divine light of the sun.
The crimson fire pillar flashed with fragmented divine characters that seemed to cheer like fire fairies.
The destructive flame energy made out of sun’s flame formed a sphere above Qin Lie’s head.
It looked like a small sun.
Surging flowing flame acted like lava inside the flaming ball. They released terrifying vibrations that could affect all flames in the world and cause volcanoes to explode.
“Whoosh whoosh whoosh!”
There was a half-dead volcano on a sea island in the southeast corner of Setting Sun Islands. It was where Gold Sun Island’s martial practitioners lived.
At this time, many sparks came out of the mouth of that volcano.
A ripple as though the volcano was about to erupt came out of the ground. That island started to shake.
“What is happening? This volcano has been silent for several hundred years. I don’t even know if it has lava. Why is it suddenly making such a big disturbance?”
Xiang Xi stood inside a crystalline war chariot and looked at the sparks flying out of the volcano entrance with a puzzled expression.
Xing Yumiao, Xing Yuyuan, and many martial practitioners of Gold Sun Island also gathered.
Supposedly, this half-dead volcano had erupted once five hundred years ago. After that, it made no more noise, as though it had used up all of its lava.
Gold Sun Island members considered it a dead volcano. They thought it would never produce any lava or flames. No one had expected that today, five hundred years later, this volcano had become alive again.
“Strange, so strange, so unexpected.” Xiang Xi shook his head in bewilderment.
“And without any warning signs too.” Xing Yuyuan didn’t understand either.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
