Uber-villain Phillip Blake has come a long way. He journeyed from humble beginnings into the dark heart of the zombie apocalypse. And here, he has manoeuvred to become a small town's self-proclaimed leader. But Woodbury's residents (those who survive) will live to regret the day Blake, aka the Governor, darkened their doors. For the Governor runs a twisted, violent dictatorship within Woodbury's ever-tightening barricades. Those that manage to breach those barricades find only misery within, and the terror of the zombie menace without. The Governor's complex story continues in a tour de force of action and horror. Iconic characters from the comic book, including Rick, Michonne, and Glenn, make their entrance onto this nightmarish stage, and fans of The Walking Dead will see these characters in a whole new light.
I love a good zombie book. This book follows the Governor’s Story. I didn’t think I could be any more shocked than the graphic novels and TV series - Boy I was wrong. It was a brutal look at a world post apocalypse. - Alison, The Book Grocer
