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

The Walking Dead original novel series, set in the universe of Robert Kirkman's iconic comic book, continues with The Fall of the Governor – Part One. From co-authors Kirkman, creator of the Eisner Award-winning comic as well as 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 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 Fall of the Governor – Part One, the Governor’s descent into madness finally erupts in a tour de force of action and horror. Beloved characters from the comic book, including Rick, Michonne and Glenn, finally make their entrance onto this nightmarish stage, and fans of The Walking Dead will see these characters in a whole new light. Simmering grudges boil over into unthinkable confrontations, battle lines are drawn, and unexpected twists seal the fates of the innocent and guilty alike.

    I've been waiting a long time for this novel. I picked up The Road to Woodbury last year at Comicon. As usual I really enjoyed this book, Kirkman and Bonansinga have a very descriptive way of writing. You can smell the decaying flesh of the walkers as they rip apart their victims. I can't wait for the final book in a month or so. How exactly do people review books without reading them? Trust me, I'm a Walking Dead fan..the book is amazing. Do yourself a favor and read them all.

    Very well done, just like the other two in the series. I will add that one shouldn't read Chapter 18 soon after having eaten. You've been warned.
  • Actually Read it!

    Unlike all the reviewers thus far, I actually read the book! Bought it on release day and finished it the next day! This book is gripping I couldn't put it down! I would suggest reading the other 2 books prior or you'll be a little lost. This book follows the comics more rather than the tv show. It is also more of a view from the people of/in Woodbury rather than Ricks group. W/o giving much away Rick is in this book but more of a stranger that we don't know much about. Very good writing, I loved the tension the authors builds upon and it's release at the end as well as the "to be continued" vibe! Good work, can't wait for the next book! Until then I have the tv shows to entertain me. Buy the books you won't be disappointed!
