The first book explained how the Governor was created; this thrilling sequel to The New York Times bestseller further reveals his ruthless, inhuman conquest of Woodbury

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.

Two for Two, Shall We Make it Three?

As stated in my review of book one, damn fine writing on par with Stephen King. Zombies aside, thisis some fine stylized writing. Episodic by design, looking forward to book three!

Read way too fast - GREAT BOOK!
April 24th, 2013
Ever start reading a book you know your going to love, wanting to read it nice and slow, to savor each and every page, and then end up reading it too darn fast because it's just THAT GOOD?? Now as I sit here writing this review, I am at a loss to describe the emptiness I feel knowing I have just finished the last of the novel series, The Walking Dead, that allowed me to immerse myself in its pages, get to know each character, whether good or bad, and in fact, MAKING me read it too fast to its finale BECAUSE it was just that good. I will miss you, and I will savor the hours of immersion in that very disturbing, believable, world that you afforded me. Oh, and I so recommend it to any one looking for great writing, and nail-biting suspense.
