From the Back Cover
From co-authors Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga, comes the gripping fourth volume in this richly woven, page-turning story.
In Rise of the Governor, über-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 traveller named Lilly Caul wound up in the terrifying thrall of Phillip Blake's twisted, violent dictatorship within Woodbury's ever-tightening barricades.
In The Fall of the Governor, Part One, classic characters from both the comic and television series, including Rick, Michonne and Glenn, finally made their appearance in the Walking Dead novel series, only to discover that the Governor is a very dangerous enemy.
Now, after a pulse-pounding series of events, the Governor and Rick face off one last time, and only one of them will be left standing . . .
Praise for The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor
'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'
'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'
