Publisher Comments:

The zombie plague unleashes its horrors on the suburbs of Atlanta without warning, pitting the living against the dead. Caught in the mass exodus, Lilly Caul struggles to survive in a series of ragtag encampments and improvised shelters. But the Walkers are multiplying. Dogged by their feral hunger for flesh and crippled by fear, Lilly relies on the protection of good Samaritans by seeking refuge in a walled-in town once known as Woodbury, Georgia.

At first, Woodbury seems like a perfect sanctuary. Squatters barter services for food, people have roofs over their heads, and the barricade expands, growing stronger every day. Best of all, a mysterious self-proclaimed leader named Philip Blake keeps the citizens in line. But Lilly begins to suspect that all is not as it seems. . . . Blake, who has recently begun to call himself The Governor, has disturbing ideas about law and order.

Ultimately, Lilly and a band of rebels open up a Pandoras box of mayhem and destruction when they challenge The Governors reign . . . and the road to Woodbury becomes the highway to hell in this riveting follow-up to Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga's New York Times bestselling The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor.

Review:

"Fred Berman's narration brings out the horrors — those caused by both zombies and humans — in this latest installment in Kirkman and Bonansinga's Governor saga. Lilly Caul and a small band of survivors are caught up in the day-to-day fight to stay alive: scavenging for food and supplies while doing their best to hide from the wandering hoards of zombies whose only objective is to find and consume the living. With winter coming and provisions running low, things are looking bleak, until the intrepid group finds sanctuary in the idyllic town of Woodbury, run by the seemingly benevolent Philip Blake, a.k.a. the Governor. However, not everything in Woodbury is as perfect as it seems, and Lilly soon discovers that flesh-eating zombies may not be the worst evil walking. Berman keeps the story moving at a solid pace; his action sequences are exciting and suspenseful, while he lends more quiet moments and intimate quality. He also provides distinct and individual voices to an array of characters, especially Lily's ragtag group and the villainous Governor. A Thomas Dunne hardcover. (Oct.)"

Wonderful read but lacking the same fast-paced story telling from Rise of the Governor. I would recommend this for any Walking Dead fan, whether it be a fan of the television show or fan of the graphic novels.
