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.

im really liking this series so far, its been every bit as thrilling as the show! the only thing that made me not like this particular book of the series is the mc of the series is taking a turn im not liking too much, here's hoping she turns it around later in the series.

Love the show & graphic novels - and mostly like the (prose?) novels - but I think it is appropriate to warn people that there are very graphic descriptions of sadistic sex and torture. Not totally surprising for Walking Dead (especially those familiar with the 'comics') but may be over the top for even those used to splattering brains and dismemberments. Otherwise a decent enhancement to the graphic novel storylines but not really in accord with the TV show.

I love the television drama series ‘The Walking Dead;’ need I say more? However, ‘Rise Of The Governor’ book one and ‘The Road to Woodbury’ book two were better than this, novel three, which I found overly complicated. Average reading at best. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.
