Chapter 2852 – Sudden Change During the Great Ceremony
Outside the capital city, the explosion containing all the energy from the Hundred Saint City slammed against the capital city again and again like the surging sea.
The Darkstar Emperor stood outside the capital city alone. His presence blazed, like a god visiting the mortal realm, possessing divine might. He confronted the incoming storm of energy alone, preventing the destructive storm that could annihilate all from reaching the city walls.
Inside the capital city, the great ceremony had already reached a critical juncture. The Grand Exalt’s essence blood had completely merged with Sacredfeather. As it strengthened his every aspect, it also seemed to alter his bloodline.
As a result, Sacredfeather seemed like a member of the Darkstar race through and through. The power of bloodlines his body emitted even vaguely pressured all members of the Darkstar race.
Having merged with the droplet of Grand Exalt’s essence blood, Sacredfeather’s bloodline had not reached the level of Grand Exalts, but it did manage to squeeze among the ranks of first descendants of Grand Exalts.
And, the power of the bloodline Sacredfeather gave off rapidly spread and expanded through the Darkstar World, merging with the world and the ways of the Darkstar World. It seemed like it was resonating with a certain power hidden within the depths of the space there.
The power was supreme, standing as lofty as the heavens. Its boundlessness and strength could not be described with words.
It was as if once this power had emerged, it could destroy everything in the world and fend off the very laws of the world, forcing the great ways into retreat.
However, this power was hidden away in the depths of space. Even sensing its existence required certain, special conditions. As for grasping or utilising it, that was even more difficult than ascending to the heavens.
Even Sacredfeather had only managed to open a door hidden in space with his presence. He could vaguely sense the existence of this power, achieving basic resonance after merging with the Grand Exalt’s essence blood and elevating his bloodline to a certain level.
But that was all. For him to mobilise this power was still a fantasy beyond his reach.
And, Sacredfeather was completely unaware of this, as he had already fallen unconscious, unable to sense the outside world.
“The critical moment is here. Jian Chen, it’s time for you to take action, or you’ll have to watch as this divine beast dies before you.” On the altar, the Virtuous Sage of Heaven’s lips hidden behind the mist curled into an evil smile. His eyes shone with excitement and eagerness. He opened his mouth suddenly, and his voice echoed through the entire city. “Sacrifice the divine beast!” With that, the Virtuous Sage of Heaven waved his hand dramatically, and he immediately sprinkled the altar with green blood filled with vitality.
That was the blood of Life-devouring Beasts. From the strength of the residual energy in the blood, it came from a Primordial realm Life-devouring Beast!
At the same time, thousands of members of the Darkstar race in the capital city fished out a bottle, removing the cap and sprinkling the blood of Life-devouring Beasts into the air.
Immediately, energy of life with the presence of the Wood Spirits permeated the capital city. It reached the altar high in the air, directly enveloping the entire structure.
Simultaneously, the supreme power hidden within the space seemed to sense something. Like it was awakened from its slumber, a tremendous might gradually spread out.
Soon afterwards, the formation assembled from the ten divine halls and the Darkstar Divine Hall suddenly sprang into action.
Sacrificing Sacredfeather required the ten divine halls and the Darkstar Divine Hall to complete the ritual!
Once the great ceremony reached this stage, it would mean Sacredfeather’s head had already been placed on the chopping block, while the formation assembled from the divine halls was a blade.
Now, the blade was prepared to fall.
However, a colossal rumble suddenly rang out at this exact moment. With the rumble, a ripple of energy powerful enough to make the vice hall masters all pale suddenly swept through the ten divine halls.
Among the ten divine halls, the fifth divine hall seemed to have received an unimaginably heavy impact, shattering to pieces in the air and falling out of the sky as countless fragments.
The three vice hall masters of the fifth divine hall, Bing Yuan, Tarot, and Dou Wujin, were all perplexed as they were launched far away from the shockwave the great energy created.
The energy was far too great. It had completely reached the upper spectrum of Infinite Prime. After shattering the fifth divine hall, the energy spread towards the nine other divine halls, as well as the Darkstar Divine Hall. With a violent collision, all of the divine halls rocked violently, swaying to and fro and shifting from position.
The formation had originally been cast down by the ten divine halls and the Darkstar Divine Hall. Now that the fifth divine hall was destroyed and the other divine halls had been shifted from their original positions, the formation obviously fell apart.
The sudden change during the ceremony left everyone in the city dumbfounded. The nine hall masters and all the vice hall masters were stunned. As they gazed at the shattered fifth divine hall, none of them had any idea what had happened.
As for all the members of the Darkstar race kneeling on the ground below, they were thrown into bewilderment. They had no idea what to do. Some of them stared at the falling fragments of the fifth divine hall and even forgot to dodge for a moment.
As for Jian Chen, he strode through the air the moment the fifth divine hall shattered and arrived before the spatial furnace. His gaze was cold as the God Tier sword that belonged to Kun Tian appeared in his hand, emitting a dazzling streak of light.
Afterwards, Jian Chen wielded the sword and directly swung it at the spatial furnace.
“Kun Tian, have you lost your mind? What are you doing?” The Virtuous Sage of Heaven cried out from the altar, both surprised and furious.
Only at this moment did the nine hall masters notice that Jian Chen had already approached the spatial furnace. In particular, when they saw the sword radiating with energy in Kun Tian’s hand being swung at the spatial furnace, they were all frightened out of their wits.
“Kun Tian, what are you doing? Stop…”
“Kun Tian, stop right now. You’ll disrupt the great ceremony like this…”
“Kun Tian, you mustn’t. Stop right now…”
At that moment, the expressions of all the Primordial realm experts who witnessed the situation changed. Their gazes became filled with disbelief.
“Kun Tian, stop!” At the same time, the Darkstar Emperor’s dignified and furious voice rang out from outside the capital city. He used his full strength to disperse the fragment of energy in front of him before rushing back into the capital city as quickly as he could, without regard for anything else.
Another deafening rumble rang out above the capital city. Jian Chen ignored everyone’s pleas. His eyes shone coldly as the space near his sword shattered, becoming riddled with cracks. In the end, the sword struck the spatial furnace viciously.
The spatial furnace was very tough, but it was unable to withstand the force behind this strike. A great hole immediately appeared.
