Review by Wuxiapedia pending.
The Taoist suddenly let out a huge laugh as his right palm rose; fast as lightning it struck the middle of the spear. 'Crack!' Yang Tiexin felt his hand go numb and hastily let go, the spear fell onto the snowy ground.
The ‘Horse God’ Han Baoju’s body was actually underneath the belly of the horse with his left foot in the stirrup and his right foot and both of his hands were holding the vat, balancing it neatly on the saddle. The horse was fast and steady, as if the stairs were flat ground to him.
Furious, Jochi began to hit Guo Jing with his horse whip again, causing him to roll around in pain. He rolled next to Jochi’s legs before suddenly jumping up and grabbing his right leg. Jochi tried to throw him off with a kick, but the boy’s grip was surprisingly strong.
Han Baoju let go of his whip and, with a flip, came tumbling down from the tree. Mei Chaofeng followed after him with the five fingers of her claw bearing down upon him. Han Baoju immediately threw his body forward to escape the attack. At the sametime, Nan Xiren and Quan Jinfa were letting loose a torrent of projectiles at their enemy from underneath the tree.
Temujin smiled, aimed his bow and shot an arrow of iron that, like the lightning, slicing through the body of a black eagle. The crowd applauded. The Khan then gave his bow to Ogedai. “It’s your turn!”
“Someone told me,” said Ma Yu, “that your Fifth brother, Zhang the Valiant Hero, as well as ‘Divine Dragon soaring through the Sky’, the hero Ke, have been both killed by Chen Xuanfeng. But since you killed Copper Corpse, one could consider that the debt has been paid. As say the Ancients: It is better to unknot a hate that to tie it. Mei Chaofeng is now a woman alone, afflicted with a serious handicap, she also appears to pity...”
Guo Jing, seeing the gleaming tip of the lance a few inches from his nose, parried with his arm, something collapsed behind him, he seized the brocade banner of Mu Yi. With the stance "To draw aside the clouds to peer at the sun", he used the pole like a long stick to counter the circling lance.
Suddenly, there was a sound of gentle laughter and Guo Jing turned around, only to hear the splashing of water and see a leaf floating down from a tree. Then, he saw a girl at the tail of a boat, rowing gently. She had long hair beneath her shoulders, was dressed in white from head to toe and had some golden pins in her hair, which shone like fire, amongst the snow. Guo Jing saw that the girl’s dressing looked like a fairy and was dumb.....
Yang Tiexin gently stroked the spear shaft and sighed, "This iron spear is rusty. It has not been used for a long while."
Consort Wang spoke softly, "Please don't touch the spear."
"Why?" Asked Yang Tiexin.
"Because this is the most precious possession I have." she murmured.
Yang Tiexin was suddenly angry. "Really?" he asked bitterly. He paused before going on, "This spear used to have a matching partner, however today only one remains."
Guo Jing placed Mei Chaofeng on his shoulders, according to her instructions, and hurried after the fleeing enemy. His body had a strong kung fu basis and Mei Chaofeng's body was not heavy so even though she was on his shoulders, it did nothing to diminish his speed. He quickly leapt and Mei Chaofeng soared along with him.
