Akuma no Koumiryou or The Devil's Spice is an original light novel written and illustrated by Kanda Hikaru and edited by Kyle Tolray.

Genre:
Action, Comedy, Tragedy, Psychological, Cyberpunk

Story Synopsis:

What does it mean to be fair?

Ageha, chef by day and cyborg assassin by night, kills to confirm his answer to that question.

After taking out one of the richest and most powerful men in Japan, he finds Kaika, the victim’s prodigy daughter, seeking him out, not for revenge, but for her own dangerous ambitions.

The deceptive and mischievous teen offers the young man a deal he cannot refuse.

Ageha needs to juggle restaurant kitchen politics, his own bloodlust, and his new moonlighting job.

Kaika has her hands full orchestrating corporate backchanneling while trying to keep a leash on her incredibly capable, perhaps too capable, new employee.

With life and death on the line, the dubious alliance between these two broken individuals leads to-

*BANG*

“Don’t spoil the meal! We haven’t even served the first course!”

Afterword:

Special thanks go to Kyle Tolray for doing a fantastic job editing this light novel. I have learned many things from your work, and I hope I can apply them to the following volumes.

Gratitude goes to my pilot reader, who has contributed greatly to the story content by sharing his ideas. He also pointed out parts that are too cryptic, an issue that I have struggled with in my writing. This story is easier to understand because of his help. His impressions on the illustrations also prevented me from publishing physically abnormal characters.

Many thanks go to the readers who have actually completed the novel. Your comments and insights are greatly appreciated. Know that I consider all of your input in writing the continuation of this story.

Volume 2 is in the works. Please look forward to it!

Chapter Eight: Taking Orders is up!

The following 3 chapters do not have illustrations, so I should have them out about a day or so at a time. I'm still finishing up the chapter 12 illustration (I just need a BG screen tone). Then I will move on to the chapter 13 illustration.
