Publisher's Summary

The newest terrifying audiobook in the Walking Dead series, thrillingly written by horror master Jay Bonansinga, is truly infectious....

Lilly Caul has risked everything. She has weathered over four years of the apocalypse. She has done things that she would not have dreamt of doing in her darkest nightmares.

But she has survived. And now, she has staked a claim in the plague-ravaged city of Atlanta.

It is a safe haven for her people, rising high above the walker-ridden streets, a place of warmth and comfort. But for Lilly Caul, something is missing....

She still dreams of her former home - the quaint little village known as Woodbury - a place of heartache as well as hope. For Lilly, Woodbury, Georgia, has become a symbol of the future, of family, of a return to normal life amidst this hell on earth.

The call is so powerful that Lilly decides to risk everything in order to go back...to reclaim that little oasis in the wilderness.

Against all odds, against the wishes of her people, Lilly leads a ragtag group of true believers back across the impossible landscape of walker swarms, flooded rivers, psychotic bands of murderers, and dangers the likes of which she has never known. Along the way, she discovers a disturbing truth about herself. She is willing to go to the darkest place in order to survive, in order to save her people, in order to do the one thing she knows she has to do: Return to Woodbury.

Still great, but...

I enjoy it as I enjoyed the whole series, but since the previous book, and now again in this one, things have been seeming way too dangerous, even for a TWD story. It feels like the danger is wherever the story is, as in, wherever Lilly's group is, not in the world of the story itself, so characters keep pouring into the story and dying at an unrealistic rate. I know conflict is king, but not everything Lilly's group tries to do has to end in a catastrophic way. It would be great to see some things work well after all and some people just not die sometimes.

Excellently written

you really become engulfed Inside the world and get attached to the characters it really tore me up inside certain parts of the book to the point where I even had to put it down for a little while to collect myself that's when you know a book is excellently written

I just can’t do it.

The story is ok. A bit too predictable. The problem that I have is that the narrator continuously mispronounces multiple words. His voice acting is quite good. However, his pronunciation leaves something to be desired. Also the author needs to come up with more variety in the use of adjectives. There are more ways to describe walkers than just mortified. Also the continued use of “pink mist” gets really old. Thesauruses and dictionaries... wise investments.

A solid Lilly Cull novel

another good story. You find yourself hoping for this group to have a break. How much bad shit can one group go through. also always finding myself yelling at Lilly, last two books she has had some doozy decisions.

Too hard to follow at times.

I love the book series, but this book can be too hard to follow at times. and these must be the unluckiest people in the history of the world. Just didnt enjoy this one as much as the others. The reader is very talented.

Disappointed in the last two books.

It is a good story, but I would like to see more success and less failure. We need at least a core group to develop long term.

Depressing & frustrating

I love TWD TV series and I really like the novels, but I can't remember when a book and its author has made me more depressed or frustrated. This novel is like 20% happiness and 80% despair and death of some great characters. It's like the main character NEVER catches a break or a breather from tragedy in her life! I hated this book!!!

Cash in #Fail

Some of these TWD books have been well thought out and interesting, good Character arcs and overall a nice addition to the Walking Dead Universe. Alas this is not one of those books. This is just filler. Pointless. Just an excuse to make some money. Everything that happens in this story happens for no reason, there is no sense to any of it and I wish I’d never dived in because This part of the story had ended last installment. Avoid it. Note to Author- Do better! We stick by these stories so give us something worthy.
