5 out of 5 rating. 1 Reviews

The third book in Robert Kirkman''s New York Times bestselling series, The Walking Dead: Fall of the Governor!

The Walking Dead trilogy of original novels, set in the universe of Robert Kirkman''s iconic comic, reaches its final crescendo in The Fall of the Governor. From coauthors Robert Kirkman, creator of the Eisner Award winning comic book and executive producer of AMC''s blockbuster TV series, and Jay Bonansinga, Stoker award finalist and internationally acclaimed author, comes the gripping third novel in this richly woven, page-turning literary saga, which began with The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor.

In Rise of the Governor, uber-villain Philip Blake journeyed from his humble beginnings directly into the dark heart of the zombie apocalypse, and became the self-proclaimed leader of a small town called Woodbury. In Book Two, The Road to Woodbury, an innocent traveler named Lilly Caul wound up in the terrifying thrall of Phillip Blake's twisted, violent dictatorship within Woodbury's ever tightening barricades.

And now, in the final installment, it all comes to a head. All the threads and mysteries of the first two books will come together in a tour de force of action and horror. Iconic characters from the comic book will finally make their entrance onto this nightmarish stage. And readers will experience a terrifying finale befitting the cultural phenomenon that this great series has become.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor:

"An excellent companion to the The Walking Dead comic books. The story is enriched by the novel format, and the characterization of the series'' most hated villain is something no fan will want to miss."
-Examiner.com

"This book stands alone and is a compelling read for fans of the series or just fans of zombies. Watch out though, because once you get a taste of the particular Kirkman brand of zombie mayhem, catching up on past issues is just around the corner."
-The Ossuary

"The story makes a great novel. You''ll get sucked in and can easily visualize everything that is happening. It''s simply a great read."
-Comicvine.com

"It takes great advantage of the literary medium in a way that most tie-in books would not."
-TVOverMind.com

"Not for the faint of heart, this book runs on pressure-cooker suspense, graphically described bloodshed, and dark acts of brutality...This riveting character study adds a new dimension to the oeuvre by fleshing out established characters and plot lines."
-School Library Journal
