A majestic sound swept out from the depths of the Heavenly River as the waves turned turbulent. A domineering Sovereign Celestial Body condensed behind Xia Yu, and as it huffed and puffed, rivers that carried the weight of mountains surged like water dragons.
A powerful oppression spread that caused people’s heads to tingle. Strong men in the distance watched with fear in their eyes because the massive silhouette was the Great Heavenly King Celestial Body practiced by Xia Yu. This Sovereign Celestial Body was ranked 45th on the List of 99 Sovereign Celestial Bodies.
Such a highly ranked Sovereign Celestial Body, even among some of the powerful top forces, would become their key Celestial Body, and thus its power would be immense.
“Xia Yu is really worthy to be the Crown Prince of the Great Xia Dynasty. That Emperor Xia treats him so well that he gave him this!” Many strong people could not help but to be full of envy, as the value of this Sovereign Celestial Body was comparable to a true Super Power Art!
Amid many envious gazes, Xia Yu, who stood before the Great Heavenly King Celestial Body, looked at Mu Chen in front of him with a chilling gaze. When the Sovereign Celestial Body appeared, his own strength had also reached a rather alarming point.
Once he struck, he could destroy a Ninth Grade Sovereign at his peak effortlessly. Even a Complete Grade Nine would not dare to clash with him and would retreat instead.
Over the years, he had been through a lot of bloody battles, but even the more powerful opponents could only retreat in the face of the Great Heavenly King Celestial Body’s great power. After all, being able to rank 45th was a testament to the power of this Great Heavenly King Celestial Body.
Sensing the domineering aura radiating from the Great Heavenly King Celestial Body, even Mu Chen’s eyes could not help but narrow. From its momentum, indeed, it was far from the ordinary Sovereign Celestial Body that he had encountered before.
Xia Yu, who was able to rank fourth on Tianluo Continent’s List of Powerhouses, did have some extraordinary abilities. This man was a strong enemy, indeed.
In the distance, Xia Yu’s eyes were indifferent. Without any hesitation, he stomped his feet. The Great Heavenly King Celestial Body behind him stared at Mu Chen, locking onto him as a target.
The Great Heavenly King Celestial Body extended its massive palm as it covered the sun and sky, swinging towards Mu Chen.
There was nothing ingenious about this blow, for the power of it was strong enough to strike a Complete Grade Nine perfectly under such terrible force. The massive palm descended, and a vast expanse of water was oppressed, creating a vast vacuum.
Mu Chen looked up. The massive palm had covered 1,000 feet, almost blocking all his paths of retreat. However, his face was still calm, and there was no hint of panic.
He took a deep breath. Behind him, the space was in turbulence as the Sovereign Sea loomed. Amid many astonished glances, he then stepped out instead of retreating.
A strong and unparalleled spiritual energy surged out from the Sovereign Sea behind Mu Chen. The golden light bloomed between heaven and earth, and then someone saw a massive golden silhouette condense behind Mu Chen.
A sun was suspended behind that golden silhouette’s head. It did not have the domineering spirit of the Great Heavenly King Celestial Body, but it had a sense of mystery that was unfathomable.
As soon as the golden shadow appeared, it waved its giant golden palm, and vigorous and extremely powerful spiritual energy converged, turning into golden light that was tens of thousands of feet long. Finally, the golden palm struck out, clashing violently with the domineering Great Heavenly King Celestial Body’s palm.
Boom boom boom!
At the moment of impact, heaven and earth seemed to be shattered as deafening rumbling sounds reverberated. Countless water columns erupted out of the surrounding river water and soared towards the sky.
A frenzy of shockwaves raged, and the eyes of many strong men, who had been watching the battle in the distance, narrowed at this moment. They were somewhat horrified to see that the Sovereign Celestial Body which appeared behind Mu Chen was unscathed after blocking Xia Yu’s Great Heavenly King Celestial Body’s palm, which had used all his might.
“How is this possible?! What is the Sovereign Celestial Body that Mu Chen practices? I can’t believe it’s so strong!”
“If you look at its power, it seems that it is not inferior to the Great Heavenly King Celestial Body in any way. Mu Chen really has cards up his sleeve!”
“But why is this Sovereign Celestial Body so unfamiliar?”
Many powerful people couldn’t help but exclaim in astonishment. After all, it was rare for a Sovereign Celestial Body to be comparable to the Great Heavenly King Celestial Body, because those who could transcend the Great Heavenly King Celestial Body were extremely rare. Even those top forces might not possess it.
Within the Heavenly River, the uproar continued as Xia Yu’s gaze was locked onto the Sovereign Celestial Body that appeared behind Mu Chen. His eyes were full of doubt and uncertainty. Although Mu Chen’s Sovereign Celestial Body was foreign, Xia Yu was vaguely familiar with it, as if he had seen it somewhere before.
“This Sovereign Celestial Body,” Xia Yu’s gaze flickered, and a sudden shock emerged in his heart. “It seems to be somewhat similar to the mysterious Sovereign Celestial Body that Garuda practiced.”
He had fought with Garuda, and of course he had seen the mysterious and powerful Sovereign Celestial Body that was not on the list of Sovereign Celestial Bodies, but whose power caused even Xia Yu to be envious.
He had been defeated by Garuda’s mysterious Sovereign Celestial Body, but now he saw Mu Chen using a similar Sovereign Celestial Body. However, Xia Yu was only a little suspicious, because while the Sovereign Celestial Body was somewhat similar to Garuda’s mysterious Sovereign Celestial Body, its aura was different.
“It shouldn’t be the same Sovereign Celestial Body!” Xia Yu’s face changed, and he finally suppressed this impossible idea. He did not believe that with Mu Chen’s ability and background, he would have a powerful Sovereign Celestial Body that even he would covet. Moreover, even if it was the same, Xia Yu was not afraid, for even the same Sovereign Celestial Body had a very different power in the hands of different people.
Was Mu Chen comparable to Garuda? This was obviously not possible in Xia Yu’s perception. Xia Yu’s doubts gradually dissipated. He looked at Mu Chen from afar, and the murderous intent in his eyes seemed to become more intense. “If this is your way to challenge my limits, then I can only tell you, I’m afraid this is not enough.”
“Let’s try it then.” Mu Chen’s voice remained nonchalant.
Xia Yu snorted coldly, his gaze growing sharper. In the next moment, he moved and appeared on the Great Heavenly King Celestial Body’s shoulders as he stomped his feet heavily.
Ripples of light radiated from beneath his feet, surging into the Sovereign Celestial Body.
The Great Heavenly King Celestial Body had strange lines of light surfacing on its huge body, and then it opened its mouth and emitted a strange growl. Sound waves emitted from its mouth, and every sound condensed and formed into divine seals about 100 feet in size.
The divine seals were overbearing, like the crown of the king, with a terrible power that could suppress mountains and rivers. Each of these seals was enough to kill a Ninth Grade Sovereign at his peak, and with such numbers coming together, even a Complete Grade Nine would fall under its attack if they were not careful.
“Heavenly King Undying Seal!” Xia Yu bellowed. The divine seals permeating the sky suddenly pierced through the void and surged towards Mu Chen like a rainstorm, attempting to envelop him.
Xia Yu’s eyes were dark. Over the years, he had killed countless Ninth Grade Sovereigns at their peak with this move, and even Complete Grade Nines had succumbed.
The Heavenly King Undying Seal was very mysterious, and even if it was destroyed, it would be immediately reshaped and would continue to attack. Unless it was destroyed in one fell swoop, no one could defeat it. It was obvious that it would be impossible for Mu Chen to do so at present.
Thus, Mu Chen would die!
Originally, Xia Yu would not easily use such tactics, even in the face of ordinary Complete Grade Nines, but Mu Chen’s methods were too strange, so Xia Yu decided to resort to such means.
The destructive fluctuations charged as they attempted to envelop Mu Chen. His gaze turned solemn, because he could feel that those divine seals seemed to possess a kind of endless fluctuation. Such an offensive attack, once one was shrouded in it, would never end, and the choice of forceful resistance would inevitably exhaust one to death.
Mu Chen’s gaze flickered as he conjured up seals with one palm.
Suddenly, a golden sun rose within the Great Solar Undying Body and finally exploded into a golden torrent and swept out. The Great Solar Undying Body stretched out its massive hand. The golden torrent gathered together like lightning, and then quickly turned into a great golden wheel on which ancient runes were engraved. It was as if it had infinite power.
“Eight Solar Sky Wheel!” Mu Chen roared in his heart. Suddenly, endless golden light erupted on the gold wheel. Since he could not resist Xia Yu’s attack forcefully, then he would deflect it back. Let Xia Yu have a taste of his own medicine and see how it felt to be on the receiving end of his Heavenly King Undying Seals!
The divine seals bombarded the golden wheel, and suddenly the wheel reversed, as if even time had stopped. Xia Yu’s eyes suddenly shrank because he was shocked to see that the countless divine seals roaring towards Mu Chen had unexpectedly, suddenly turned around. With a more ferocious momentum, they charged back at him with an overwhelming aura!
“D*mn it!” Xia Yu’s face became green in an instant.
While Mu Chen rebounded Xia Yu’s offensive attack, in another part of the Heavenly River, Garuda, who was capturing a Heavenly River Spirit, looked up in their direction.
“Has he managed to summon eight suns already?” Garuda played with the Heavenly River Spirit crystal in his hand, and an emotionless smirk emerged on his face as he turned directly to the direction where Mu Chen was.
“Looks like it’s time to get rid of this person.”
