Being possessed isn't like the movies, television, or manga, at least not for Kai. There is no green vomit, weird languages, no horns, no bodily marks of any kind unless you count the small starburst scar at the corner of his mouth. No, being possessed isn't that exciting. For Kai, it consists mostly of waking up in strange places other than his bed because his demon, Akuma, likes to look at the night sky, a behavior that makes keeping Akuma a secret from his parents and the world at large a little difficult. Still, Kai persists in living just under the radar. That is, until boy and demon are recognized by a mob boss in the supernatural underworld of Los Angeles. Blackmailed into service, Kai must navigate the workings of a dangerous and violent clan all while trying to do the most difficult thing of all: appear normal.
