Following in the footsteps of the New York Times best-selling graphic novels and the record-breaking new television show, this debut novel in a trilogy of original Walking Dead books chronicles the back story of the comic book series' greatest villain, The Governor.
In the Walking Dead universe, there is no greater villain than The Governor. The despot who runs the walled-off town of Woodbury, he has his own sick sense of justice: whether it’s forcing prisoners to battle zombies in an arena for the townspeople’s amusement, or chopping off the appendages of those who cross him. The Governor was voted “Villain of the Year” by Wizard magazine the year he debuted, and his story arc was the most controversial arc in the history of The Walking Dead comic book series. Now, for the first time, fans of The Walking Dead will discover how The Governor became the man he is, and what drove him to such extremes.

“If the comic book writer Robert Kirkman were a superhero, his name might be the Midas Touch.” (The New York Times)
the narrator reminded me of Merl. my favorite character in the series. I will get them all
Born again book reader and listener.
Well narrated and written. An interesting look into the origins of The Walking Dead's main villian.
Fred Berman is the reason i purchased this story. He paints a great picture of each character and makes you feel you are in the story. The authors wrote a great book and Fred made it come alive.
This book was great, gruesome, and frightening when I read it and due to Fred Berman's performance I think it is even more frightening. I love it just as much as I love the following novels. Just hope the next Walking Dead novel tells the story of something other than Woodbury.
Your not a true Walking Dead fan until you finish this book. If you think you know all there is to know about Phillip Blake your wrong. This book was ten times better than I thought it could be and the narrator did a great job of giving you the feeling that you are fighting for life against the walking dead
As a fan of the comic and tv show, I loved this book and the background story of the governor character. Although there are some similarities between the three storylines, the differences keep you listening and not knowing what to expect next. Would definitely recommend to others. For fans, this is a must read! The production was well done and easy to listen to. 5 Stars
I've read the graphic novels and watched the show. Both great. This is also great - and yet a slightly different perspective in my opinion -so far. I am enjoying the experience.
