Ice Soul Star’s reputation was well deserved. When Yang Kai and Su Yan arrived here, they saw that the world was covered in snow and ice. The plants, the earth, and even the mountains seemed to be made from ice sculptures, crystal clear and extremely beautiful. In the wilderness, there were many ice-attribute spirit flowers and grasses. The rare ice-attribute spirit grasses here were quite common.
However, although these things were extremely valuable in the Star Field, they were no longer of much use to Yang Kai and Su Yan, so after a moment of surprise, they had no intention of collecting them.
This place was extremely cold and ordinary people couldn’t stay here for long. However, Yang Kai’s physique was strong and his cultivation was extraordinary, so he was naturally unafraid of this small cold. Looking at Su Yan again, not only did she not feel uncomfortable, she even felt like she had returned to her homeland. After arriving in this world of ice and snow, she could clearly feel that the flow of energy in her body had become faster. Not only did the cold environment not suppress her strength, it even increased her aura.
She cultivated the Ice Attribute Secret Art and had obtained the Ice Phoenix’s Origin Inheritance. This environment was like a dragon entering the sea or a tiger entering a mountain forest.
If she had been cultivating in this environment a few years ago, her cultivation would have been far beyond anyone’s reach.
Yang Kai summoned his Embodiment and let it lead the way while he led Su Yan down into the depths of the Earth’s crust to search for the Star Source of Ice Soul Star.
The Stone Puppet Clan’s Art of Earth and Stone was a gift bestowed upon them by their innate talent, so it was naturally easy for them to open a path in the earth.
A quarter of an hour later, the path ahead suddenly opened up and they arrived at a cave underground.
The surrounding environment became even colder, causing Yang Kai to click his tongue in wonder. Although he wasn’t affected by this place, he estimated that if it weren’t for someone who cultivated an ice attribute cultivation technique, even a 3rd order Void King Realm wouldn’t be able to last long here.
Ice Soul Star was like a death zone in the Star Field. Only those who had surpassed the limits of the Void King Realm could come here to explore.
However, the strongest existence in the Star Field was only a 3rd order Void King Realm.
Inside the cave, there was an ice-blue flame flowing, emitting an extremely cold aura. Just a glance at it was enough to freeze one’s Soul. This was obviously a type of strange flame, and it was also a type of extremely cold flame. One couldn’t help but sigh at how profound and mysterious this world was.
At the center of the cave, there was a rather eye-catching ball of light that was constantly twisting and turning, as if it had a mind of its own.
“Star Source?” Su Yan turned to Yang Kai and asked.
Yang Kai looked at it for a moment before grinning, “It’s fake.”
“Fake?” Su Yan was stunned.
“It’s fake!” Yang Kai affirmed. He had come into contact with a lot of Star Sources, and now that he was the Star Field’s Master, he was naturally able to see through the ‘Origin’ at a glance. It was obviously the condensation of an ice-cold flame, not the Origin of Ice Soul Star, but a trap.
Yang Kai snapped his fingers, causing the cave to light up.
A series of lifelike ice sculptures suddenly appeared in front of him, all of them sitting cross-legged and strolling around the cave.
However, because the light here was too dim and did not reveal any aura, Su Yan’s attention was completely focused on the ‘Origin’ and she had not noticed it before.
“These…” Su Yan frowned.
“Probably someone who wants to refine the Star Source of Ice Soul Star.”
Su Yan looked around carefully and found that there were more than a dozen ice sculptures around them, almost a hundred of them. If what Yang Kai said was true, then there were more than a hundred people who had died here because they wanted to refine the Ice Soul Star's Star Source. As for those who had the qualifications to enter this place and attempt to refine the Star Source, how weak could their cultivation be? They were definitely 3rd order Void King Realm.
Their deaths were extremely peaceful, and there was no trace of struggle or pain between their brows, as if they had just ended their lives in a deep sleep.
In other words, when they died, they didn’t even realize death had arrived!
There had never been such a dangerous Cultivation Star’s Star Source before. Ice Soul Star was probably unique even in the entire Star Field, yet it had actually caused so many 3rd order Void King Realm to fall here.
Looking at the clothes they were wearing, Su Yan immediately discovered that these clothes had an obvious sense of the era they belonged to. The people who had died here were obviously not from the same era. These 3rd order Void King Realm had probably lived for thousands or even tens of thousands of years ago.
Her heart went cold. Although she was now a 2nd order Principle Source Stage cultivator, if she really came here alone to refine this so-called “Origin”, the consequences would be dire.
“The Star Source is not here!” Yang Kai shook his head.
“Then where?” Su Yan asked.
Yang Kai’s eyes shifted as he stared in a certain direction and smiled, “Over there!”
At that moment, he clearly felt a will spying on them. Although it was very subtle, how could it hide from his senses? Following the vine to the melon, he instantly locked onto a location.
Under normal circumstances, even though the Star Source was the representative of the World Will, it was nothing more than an inanimate object and wouldn’t actively think or move, but the Star Source of Ice Soul Star was obviously not like this.
It seemed to have gained sentience!
Interesting, really interesting. He suddenly recalled the Star Source of Tongxuan Continent he had seen before. Back then, Tongxuan Continent’s Spirit Qi was exhausted and the world was on the verge of collapse. The Star Source was unwilling to sit still and wait for death, so it transformed into a rabbit that walked around. Perhaps intentionally or unintentionally, it encountered Xia Ningchang and eventually refined by her.
Ice Soul Star’s Star Source was somewhat similar to Tongxuan Continent’s.
Tongxuan Continent was a place where the world was on the verge of collapse and its Star Source was aware of the crisis, so it took the initiative to seek opportunities.
This was obviously not the case on Ice Soul Star.
Could Star Source really give birth to sentience? Yang Kai suddenly felt a deep sense of curiosity. He had a feeling that Su Yan’s harvest this time was not small.
Following the path opened by his Embodiment, Yang Kai hugged Su Yan and quickly returned to the surface.
Unlike the calm before, at this moment, the entire Ice Soul Star was wrapped up in a snowstorm. The cold wind was bone-piercing, and the ice and snow were like blades cutting through all things. In the sky, thick layers of clouds gathered, and lightning flashed and thunder roared, as if the world was enraged.
Yang Kai grinned and raised his hand towards the sky, waving his hand and shouting, “Disperse!”
Thunder roared, lightning flashed, ice and snow stopped, the sky was clear and cloudless.
Although he was not the Star Master of Ice Soul Star, his status as the Star Field Master was higher than that of an ordinary Star Master. With every move he made, he could easily control the weather of a Star.
The mysterious will seemed to have realized something and no longer tried to resist Yang Kai. Instead, above the ice and snow land, an ice bridge suddenly appeared, connecting Yang Kai and Su Yan to an unknown distance.
The ice bridge was transparent and pure. When it suddenly appeared, even Su Yan was stunned.
Yang Kai laughed and said, “The host seems very hospitable, let’s go.”
If it weren’t for the extraordinary methods he just displayed, he would never have enjoyed such enthusiasm.
Taking Su Yan’s hand, he stepped onto the ice bridge and, without any effort, flew towards the end of the ice bridge.
On top of a towering ice mountain, a cold voice suddenly rang out, “A guest has come to greet us.”
The ice mountain trembled as one figure after another emerged from the ice caves. At first glance, these people looked no different from ordinary humans, but if one looked closely, they would discover that they were not humans.
Each one of them was a pure and flawless ice sculpture, a handsome man and a beautiful woman, all of them dressed in white, their pointed ears like the ears of a beast. Not only did they not ruin their overall beauty, they even added a noble aura to them.
They were the elves of ice and snow, the untainted Ice Spirit Race.
There were tens of thousands of Ice Spirits on the ice mountain, if anyone else were to know about this scene, they would probably go crazy.
In the Star Field, any Ice Spirit could be sold for an astronomical price, let alone tens of thousands. Their existence itself was a massive fortune.
Many Ice Spirits were stunned and looked at each other, seemingly unable to believe what they had just heard.
The owner of that cold voice just now was a supreme existence in the Ice Spirit Race, the foundation of the Ice Spirit Race, the Ice God.
Ice Spirit didn’t have any friends, so now that Ice God actually told them there was a visitor, they were naturally surprised.
Since when did the Ice Spirit Race need to welcome guests? However, since it was the Ice God who spoke, even though they were puzzled, they quickly prepared themselves. Their purity was not only in their bodies, but also in their minds. Naturally, they did not dare to disrespect the Ice God’s words.
An ice bridge suddenly appeared from a distant place and connected to the mountainside.
From the ice bridge, a man and a woman walked side by side, their figures motionless, quickly arriving at the end of the ice bridge.
After landing on the ground, Yang Kai immediately looked around in amazement. This was also the first time he had seen this so-called Ice Spirit. Using his Divine Sense, Yang Kai could sense that these Ice Spirits’ bodies seemed to be formed from ice crystals. Their bodies exuded a cold aura and seemed to be extremely sturdy. To them, their cultivation seemed to be non-existent. The Void King Realm and Void Return Stage were not enough to describe their abilities.
However, Yang Kai could feel that many of them had abilities that were not inferior to the Void King Realm.
What a powerful force! Yang Kai was secretly shocked that there was such a force in the Star Field. It was truly unbelievable. If the Underworld Sect had invaded the Star Field and attacked Ice Soul Star, they would have been completely wiped out before he could even act.
Fortunately, the Ice Spirit Race had not appeared for a long time and only moved about on Ice Soul Star; otherwise, they would have been able to rule the entire Star Field.
A handsome male Ice Spirit walked out and asked curiously, “Are you Ice God’s guests?”
Yang Kai smiled and said, “If no one else comes here, then we are.” Ice God… He didn’t know if this was a self-proclaimed title or a respectful title given to it by the Ice Spirit Race, but it was quite appropriate. After all, it was the Origin of this Star, and on this Cultivation Star, it was indeed a God.
