The Devil is a Part-Timer, Vol. 2 (Novel)

By Satoshi Wagahara

  • Paperback
  • £10.99

Hell hath no fury like Satan on fries...
One of the most hilarious and inspired light novel concepts in years justifiably spun off hugely popular manga and animation adaptations.

Sadao Maou, the Devil King, has finally been promoted to store manager! And who should move next door to his fortress (actually a tiny studio apartment in a dingy walk-up) but a lovely kimono-wearing lass. But the former devil-crushing hero Emi Yusa is none too pleased with this turn of events, to say nothing of high-schooler Chiho Sasaki, who's still nursing a terrible crush on the Devil King. Meanwhile, a Sentucky Fried Chicken has opened up right across the street from Sadao's beloved MgRonald! It's the first real test of his managerial prowess, and he's facing a pay cut unless he can top SFC's sales! Between the two new neighbors, the Devil King's troubles are anything but part-time!

The Two of Swords: Part 19

K. J. Parker
Authors:
K. J. Parker

"Why are we fighting this war? Because evil must be resisted, and sooner or later there comes a time when men of principle have to make a stand. Because war is good for business and it's better to die on our feet than live on our knees. Because they started it. But at this stage in the proceedings," he added, with a slightly lop-sided grin, "mostly from force of habit."A soldier with a gift for archery. A woman who kills without care. Two brothers, both unbeatable generals, now fighting for opposing armies. No-one in the vast and once glorious United Empire remains untouched by the rift between East and West, and the war has been fought for as long as anyone can remember. Some still survive who know how it was started, but no-one knows how it will end.This serial novel from the World Fantasy Award winning K. J. Parker is the story of a war on a grand scale, told through the eyes of its soldiers, politicians, victims and heroes. Further instalments released monthly.

The fast-food joint that the Devil King calls his workplace has reopened, now with a hip café space upstairs - the perfect chance for the overlord of all demons to earn a few new certifications and work his way up to management. Meanwhile, Chiho, whose love for the Devil King remains doggedly unrequited, discusses ways with Emi to learn how to master the Idea Link, a skill that could let her telepathically communicate across worlds and call for help whenever she makes contact with a nefarious demon...or angel, for that matter. Suzuno steps up to serve as her teacher...but her choice of training areas (a public bath) leaves the others to question her sanity. It's the sixth volume of this low-wage high fantasy, where soap bubbles fly and everyone may come out less than squeaky clean!
