The Horrifying Defence
Jiang Chen couldn’t help admitting that Nanbei Chao was really an extraordinary person. Despite all the distractions, Nanbei Chao was still able to concentrate on his task. As a matter of fact, this was the best option for Nanbei Chao as he had already known the outcome of the situation. Once he succeeded, his power would become terrifyingly incredible – a mere finger strike of his would be powerful enough to destroy a huge mountain.
After all the magma disappeared, Jiang Chen’s figure re-emerged. The doors of the Ancestral Dragon Pagoda had already been closed, seeming pretty satisfied with the feast it had just consumed.
The experts who saw this couldn’t stop sighing.
“He’s truly a heaven-defying kid! His cultivation base seems to have advanced from intermediate Immortal Emperor to late Immortal Emperor.”
“The advancement is nothing. The key is that he could even destroy the seal of the Great Sovereign. This is something he can already be proud of because not even the half-step Sovereign elder could achieve such a feat.”
“That’s right. One will never know how scary it is until one touches the Sovereign realm. This kid is able to break the sealed zone of the unparalleled Great Sovereign with the mere cultivation base of Immortal Emperor. He definitely deserves to take pride in that.”
The crowd praised Jiang Chen profusely. They were all experts of old-ancestor rank from either super sects, ancient families or Immortal Court. Given their identity, they had already seen too many geniuses in their life, but it was absolutely their first time seeing such heaven-defying youth.
The half-step Sovereign elder seemed to be the most excited amongst them. He had been holding an objective wherever he went – to find the genius that could alter the fate of Heaven Sovereign. Not only had he successfully found the candidate, but the performance of the candidate had also exceeded his expectation. Hence, there was no way that he wouldn’t feel excited about it.
On the other side, the Monarch Sword was still engaged in a fierce competition with the Immortal Burying Coffin that had radiated a strand of qi. Then, a stream of light shot out in front of Jiang Chen like a new passageway. Jiang Chen instantly understood that this was the best opportunity for it.
Without hesitation, he took out the Nine Yin Profound Heart and placed it on the light. In the blink of an eye, it vanished along with the heart.
“What is he doing? Why did he give the precious treasure away to the Immortal Burying Coffin?”
“That’s right. Is he stupid? He ought to know the preciousness of the Nine Yin Profound Heart. After expending so much effort and taking such a great risk, it doesn’t make sense for him to give the heart to the Immortal Burying Coffin just like that.”
Some of them couldn’t understand Jiang Chen’s actions. The Nine Yin Profound Heart was a priceless treasure. Due to greed, some of them were even ready to seize the heart over, however none of them had thought that Jiang Chen would actually give it to the Immortal Burying Coffin. If it was them who had gotten that peerless treasure, they would have left this place at once and find a secret location to refine the heart. They wouldn’t stay here for even one second, much less give the treasure away to someone else.
But immediately, they noticed the abnormal changes. The interior of the Immortal Burying Coffin had been obscured by a layer of frost, but after the Nine Yin Profound Heart had entered the coffin, the layer of frost vanished, making the inside visible.
An unmatched beauty was lying quietly in the coffin. The Nine Yin Profound Heart automatically entered the body of the Empress, where the heart should be.
“Look, a girl is sleeping inside the coffin. The Nine Yin Profound Heart has been absorbed by her.”
“She’s the Empress, Empress Nine Yin! There’s no doubt about it. I finally understood why the coffin came to Monarch Mountain. It turns out that Empress Nine Yin has been lying in the coffin. She has come for the Nine Yin Profound Heart.”
“The Immortal Burying Coffin is the natal weapon of Great Sovereign Zang Xian. Why would Empress Nine Yin be lying in it?”
“I reckon you haven’t heard about it. There’s a rumour that says Empress Nine Yin is the daughter of the Immortal Execution King. Based on the fact that Immortal Execution King and Great Sovereign Zang Xian had sworn to live and die together, Great Sovereign Zang Xian ought to be considered the godfather of Empress Nine Yin. So it isn’t surprising for Empress Nine Yin to be lying inside the Immortal Burying Coffin. What I feel strange about is that why did this youth help Empress Nine Yin? What is his relationship with her?”
“There will surely be chaos. The battle between the two great Sovereigns has extended until now. Today, the reincarnation of Great Sovereign Batian has found the Sovereign body and Empress Nine Yin has re-emerged. It seems like these two peerless figures are using different methods to reincarnate.”
It was too astounding as if the greatest secret had just been uncovered. To any of them on the scene, Great Sovereign Batian and Empress Nine Yin were certainly famous ancient figures, including Immortal Execution King and Great Sovereign Zang Xian who were both peerless figures in the primordial times. These figures had only existed in legends and were considered pinnacle existences in the Immortal World.
Jiang Chen let out a sigh of relief after seeing the Nine Yin Profound Heart entering Yan Chenyu’s body. With the Immortal Burying Coffin still fighting the Monarch Sword, he didn’t have to worry about Yan Chenyu’s safety because she was well-protected in the coffin.
Jiang Chen wheeled around and cast his sharp gaze onto Nanbei Chao. He couldn’t just stand here and watch Nanbei Chao succeed in the integration. Some measures must be taken.
The Heavenly Saint Sword materialized in his hand and turned into a 300-meter long sword. It was then slashed ferociously at Nanbei Chao. Even if this attack wouldn’t kill Nanbei Chao, it would certainly distract Nanbei Chao.
Unfortunately, just as Jiang Chen’s sword was about to touch the top of Nanbei Chao’s head, a golden layer of light surged out from below the throne, enshrouding Nanbei Chao and the Sovereign body. Jiang Chen’s sword hit the golden barrier, and a deafening rumble erupted from it.
Jiang Chen forcibly stabilized himself after being sent 300 meters away. The powerful rebounding force caused his arm to feel numb. Blood flowed out from the corner of his mouth. He looked at the golden layer of light and saw that it was completely intact. Not a mark could be seen on it.
