    Summary

    Davos Seaworth has the least enjoyable job in the United States of Westeros

    He must manage the presidential campaign of Stannis Baratheon, Governor of Dragonstone and the least popular politician in the country. In order to do so, he must deal with Secretary of the Treasury Petyr Baelish, the twin Senators Cersei and Jaime Lannister, the megachurch preacher Melisandre Asshai, and Robb Stark, the vengeful new Representative from Winterfell.

    On top of that, Joffrey Baratheon just promised to build a wall in the North and make the wildlings pay for it.

    If there’s one thing Davos knows, it’s this: Election Day is coming.

    Summary

    The world lives on an apparent calm, unaware of what is happening on its surface.

    What happened in one of its cliffs, however, has a ring of miraculous.

    It took a journey of a month, back and forth, in search of his place in the framework of existence, but Asgore found much more than just himself.

    As the mocking sign of eternal recurrence, the greatest challenge of all monsters and fallen humans looms ahead: to live in pursuit of happiness in the Overworld and its facets.

    Nations have fallen, kingdoms were restored, new chivalric and philosophical orders have arisen to defend and understand what secrets are hidden in supercelestial vastness, while megacorporations thrive on the backs of others in a continuous fight against Anarchy and the Mafia.

    Faced with ever greater forces than them, the little daily things will become their shield in the slow process of peaceful integration.

    Here, where the past mingles with the future in bold and picturesque scenery, amid technological developments, power games, social classes concerns and interests, metaphysical debates and farcical situations... Will monsterkind be able to assert its place in the world?
