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 Pandora’s box of mayhem and destruction when they challenge The Governor’s 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.

Rated out of 5 by from Hm I've been checking everyday since release as well in my area as well...and still nothing. I went to order it in store, but they talked me out of it (twice), saying that they'd have it in store sooner than if I ordered it. Pretty lame!

Rated out of 5 by from this is some BS; why no store has the book that was released a week ago and is clearly a popular seller is absurd. I've been checking daily and not one store within 100kms has had a copy since the 16th. ANYONE WHO WANTS THIS BOOK SHOULD MAKE THEIR PURCHASE ELSEWHERE REGARDLESS IF CHAPTERS EVENTUALLY GETS THEM (NO ONLINE ORDERS EITHER) BOYCOTT THE COMPANY THATS WILLING TO TELL YOU ITS COMING IN THEIR STORES THE 16th BUT THEN GOES "MEH, I DONT KNOW, ITS THE SUPPLIERS FAULT, THEYRE DELAYED WITH THEIR SHIPMENTS...." BULL -- I'VE SEEN COMMENTS FROM LOTS OF PEOPLE ONLINE SAYING THE COPY THEY ORDERED ONLINE HAS ALREADY ARRIVED AT THEIR HOUSE ... SO THIS IS A CHAPTERS PROBLEM. F CHAPTERS!

Read from the Book

ONE  No one in the clearing hears the biters coming through the high trees.The metallic ringing noises of tent stakes going into the cold, stubborn Georgia clay drown the distant footsteps—the intruders still a good five hundred yards off in the shadows of neighboring pines. No one hears the twigs snapping under the north wind, or the telltale guttural moaning noises, as faint as loons behind the treetops. No one detects the trace odors of putrid meat and black mold marinating in feces. The tang of autumn wood smoke and rotting fruit on the midafternoon breeze masks the smell of the walking dead.In fact, for quite a while, not a single one of the settlers in the burgeoning encampment registers any imminent danger whatsoever—most of the survivors now busily heaving up support beams hewn from found objects such as railroad ties, telephone poles, and rusty lengths of rebar.“Pathetic … look at me,” the slender young woman in the ponytail comments with an exasperated groan, crouching awkwardly by a square of paint-spattered tent canvas folded on the ground over by the northwest corner of the lot. She shivers in her bulky Georgia Tech sweatshirt, antique jewelry, and ripped jeans. Ruddy and freckled, with long, deep-brown hair that dangles in tendrils wound with delicate little feathers, Lilly Caul is a bundle of nervous tics, from the constant yanking of stray wisps of hair back behind her ears to the compulsive gnawing of fingernails. Now, with her small hand she clutches the ha

Editorial Reviews

“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…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.” – Publishers Weekly on The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury

“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
