Rolling mountain ranges, towering mountain peaks, and steep cliffs could be seen everywhere in the Realm of a Thousand Devastations.
Steered by the beautiful woman, the Silver Chariot traveled at full speed under the night sky.
Nie Tian leaned against the metal edge of the war chariot as he glanced around while listening to the conversation between Huang Fan and the woman.
Soon, he learned that the woman’s name was Liu Ling, who was a member of the Yin Sect in the Realm of a Thousand Devastations.
There were plenty of Qi warrior sects in the Realm of a Thousand Devastations, but the Yin Sect and the Yang Sect were the only ones that were truly powerful, and the other sects took orders from them.
As a matter of fact, in the beginning, the Yin Sect and Yang Sect had been one sect: the Yin-Yang Sect.
It had been the most powerful sect in the Realm of a Thousand Devastations for hundreds of years. However, for some reason, the Yin-Yang Sect split and became the Yin Sect and Yang Sect that ruled the Realm of a Thousand Devastations today.
After that, the two sects that shared the same root drifted apart and grew as incompatible as fire and water. Conflicts constantly broke out between them.
However, now that the spatial rift had appeared and Demons were pouring into their realm, the Yin Sect and the Yang Sect had cast aside their petty differences and united as one to defend against the Demon invaders together.
Two days ago, restless Demons had finally started marching through the spatial rift and into the Realm of a Thousand Devastations. The Yin Sect and the Yang Sect immediately joined together and called upon every Qi warrior sect in the Realm of a Thousand Devastations to send their most powerful experts to fight the Demons in the area filled with demon Qi.
However, since the spatial rift remained open, more and more Demons kept swarming into their realm.
After receiving word that Nie Tian had already sealed the spatial rift in the Realm of Flame Heaven, the Yin Sect and the Yang Sect had immediately contacted the Heaven Palace Sect and then waited for Nie Tian’s arrival.
Both the Yin Sect and the Yang Sect had been expecting Nie Tian’s timely arrival so that he could seal the spatial rift with the spell formation left by the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace as early as possible.
It wasn’t long before the Silver Chariot flew into the mountain range covered in raging demon Qi.
“Be careful. The Demons might attempt to intercept us on our way to the spatial rift.” Liu Ling frowned as she warned Nie Tian again, “Remember, never expose your star power aura, lest the high-tier Demons find out that you are the key to activating the spell formation left by the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace.”
Nie Tian nodded. “Noted.”
As the Silver Chariot charged into the dense demon Qi, Nie Tian intentionally masked the rotating wisps of star power within his vortex of star power. He even used his bloodline talent, Life Stealth, to reduce the fluctuations of his flesh power and spiritual power.
As the war chariot shuttled through the mountain range that had been drowned by demon Qi, Nie Tian observed with rapt attention and discovered that Qi warriors could be seen fighting low-tier and high-tier Demons in every corner of the mountain range.
When they caught sight of the passing war chariot, along with Huang Fan and Nie Tian on it, their expressions flickered and their fighting spirit was greatly aroused.
Apparently, they had heard about Huang Fan and Nie Tian’s arrival, and that they were coming to help them seal the spatial rift.
Now that they knew why Nie Tian was here, none of them were stupid enough to say anything about it.
They didn’t wave at Liu Ling when they saw the war chariot fly by, but rather, they threw themselves at the Demons that showed any hint of intentions to stop Nie Tian’s war chariot and attacked them with everything they had so that Nie Tian didn’t get delayed.
A substantial amount of low-tier Demons roared as they met the powerful experts from the Realm of a Thousand Devastations in fierce battles.
Some high-tier Demons could also be seen among the low-tier Demons. Adorned in exquisite armor, they issued commands to the low-tier Demons while fighting human Qi warriors with their strange-looking weapons.
No matter whether they were low-tier Demons or high-tier Demons, they all fought within the demon-Qi-wreathed area, the reason being that the demon Qi could enhance the Demons’ perception, as well as their battle prowess.
However, it was the opposite for human Qi warriors.
Fighting in the raging demon Qi, humans’ perception, vision, and hearing would be compromised. Not only that, but they would also have to spare some of their spiritual power to fend off the demon Qi. Therefore, their battle prowess would be reduced.
As the Silver Chariot emerged from behind a high mountain peak, Nie Tian saw two Greater Heaven stage Qi warriors split apart.
However, as they did, not a single drop of blood splattered out.
Their bodies seemed like two pieces of tofu being sliced up by numerous sharp blades.
After the shattered bodies fell on the ground, numerous fine, glittering, purple strings flew out of the chunks of flesh. Without any delay, they flew towards a high-tier Demon, glittering with bright, purple light.
That high-tier Demon was a tall, curvaceous, scantily-clad female, with exquisite purple armor covering only her vital parts.
On her tan skin, her long, purple hair fluttered against the wind as her slender legs were wrapped around the neck of a ten-meter-tall low-tier Demon.
Holding a broad greatsword in her right hand, she reached out with her left hand. In the next moment, the purple strings disappeared into her palm, as if they had instantly merged with her flesh and blood.
She was wearing a sinister mask that made her look like a evil spirit. Her exposed purple pupils were wreathed in frigid killing intent.
She was about to leave to find new targets on her mount after killing the two Greater Heaven stage human Qi warriors when she caught sight of the Silver Chariot that had just appeared from behind a mountain peak, along with Nie Tian, Huang Fan, and Liu Ling standing in it.
Her purple pupils instantly shone with suffocating light, and then a mysterious soul fluctuation seemed to reach Nie Tian and the others through nothing but her gaze.
As soon as his gaze met hers, Nie Tian experienced a sudden stabbing pain in his chest, as well as difficulty breathing.
Without any control of his own, the vortexes of spiritual power within his spiritual sea started to accelerate and infuse pure spiritual power into his body to defend against the attack of the light that had shot out from the Demon’s eyes.
Meanwhile, seven tiny stars appeared in the depths of Nie Tian’s pupils.
They were the seven fragmentary stars in Nie Tian’s soul. They must have sensed danger, and thus revealed themselves.
Upon seeing the abnormal change in Nie Tian’s pupils, the high-tier Demon with a steaming body instantly came to a realization, and exclaimed in perfect human language, “You’re the one who obtained the legacies from the Ancient Fragmentary Star Palace!”
Liu Ling’s expression flickered as she shouted, “Oh no!”
In the next moment, the female high-tier Demon let out a long, penetrating roar.
Upon hearing her roar, the low-tier and high-tier Demons that had been fighting Qi warriors of the Realm of a Thousand Devastations started converging on Nie Tian from every direction, as if they had just received her command.
