The Devil's Spice



Akuma no Koumiryou or The Devilís 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 victimís 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*

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 far 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 when writing the continuation of this story.

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

It isn't what you would typically call a cyberpunk story, but it does have the cybernetic enhancements and the fight against the system theme going on.

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.

Volume 3 cover page and Chapter One: Dangerous Games is up!!!

Here is the volume synopsis:
After finding a new mistress, the lost killer is thrust into a den of monsters.
The devil tames a storm and ventures forth to fulfill her ambition and regain what she has lost.
Two women learn the meaning of sacrifice.
Foes, old and new, sharpen their fangs and join the battle royal.

I will be uploading the chapters as I finish the final edits and illustrations. One or two a week should be the normal pace.

I hope everyone enjoys the third volume of this story! This is generally less dark than the second volume, with tons more comedy and action. Any comments are appreciated.
