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 best-selling The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor.

I wanted to savor it
And I read passages over again
This is the meat of the stories of Walking Dead. You have
To experience Woodbury
The narrator does a great job and still loving the series so far. The character building is fun and seeing how they evolve is a fun ride. Avid fan of the comic book, tv series, and this book
Not as good as the first book. I did not like the non- ending. But I will buy the next one because I am hooked.
Wonderful story there were plenty of great characters to learn about but I did not enjoy how it ended compared the the first book but it's definitely worth your time if you are a walking dead fan
Prepare. Move. Survive.
The death of Josh Hamilton. I liked his character, much as I liked T Dog from the TV show and Tyrese from the Comic and TV show.
Fred Berman is an excellent narrator. He accents each character with a uniqueness giving each of them a voice. He also provides much needed pauses in the reading allowing the listener to visualize the scene.
If you are a fan of the Comics and TV Show on AMC, then you should read this book and The Rise of the Governor. That way you can get the full back story of the Governor!
dont spend too much time on characters lives and activities. First book was better held my interest
cesar martinez and bruce. the accents were great
Story not very good. Suppose to be a zombie book. Too much time spent on characters lives and activities. First book was better held my interest. Most likely will not purchase another book of this series without some great rating.
