Readers of The Walking Dead: Rise of The Governor followed the disturbing transformation of Philip Blake as he morphed into The Governor; fans of Kirkman’s The Walking Dead comics know Woodbury’s leader as one of the most ruthless and inhumane in the series; and viewers of AMC’s “The Walking Dead” were recently introduced to The Governor as the character made his television debut in the show’s third season. Yet, the depths of The Governor’s psyche and his merciless interpretation of law and order on the citizens of Woodbury manifest in THE ROAD TO WOODBURY with unprecedented fashion and with riveting plotlines and shocking scenes that will leave even the most ardent Walking Dead fans in awe.
Welcome to Woodbury: a walled-in community where people barter services for food, sleep with roofs over their heads, and find protection under the rule of a self-proclaimed leader. In the barren, zombie-infested outskirts of Atlanta, after an apocalyptic plague has left the living pitted against and grossly outnumbered by the lurking dead, Woodbury seems like a perfect sanctuary. Caught in the mass exodus, crippled by fear and hunger, and barely alive after a bloody and dismal struggle against the multiplying Walkers, stumbling upon Woodbury may have saved Lilly Caul’s life—and the lives of the few she took under her wing.
Despite Lilly’s initial hesitations about Woodbury, her vote to keep moving is outnumbered by the others in her group. And as she considers the grim alternative of solitude, Lilly finds no choice but to rely on the residents of Woodbury for refuge and, thus, accept their mysterious leader – The Governor – as her own. Lilly’s suspicions about Woodbury and The Governor soon come to fruition in THE ROAD TO WOODBURY (Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Press; 10/16/12; $24.99), the latest page-turning novel in the New York Times bestselling series by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga. Ultimately, Lilly and a band of rebels devise a plot to take over The Governors reign – and in doing so, open up a Pandora’s box of mayhem, destruction, and irrevocable consequences.
Robert Kirkman was thrilled to elaborate on familiar characters and introduce a cast of new ones with his first Walking Dead novel in 2011 and is excited to team up with Jay Bonansinga for the sequel. “We’re going to meet new characters as they come to Woodbury and see how Woodbury is founded and how The Governor continues to grow as a character,” said Kirkman. “It all takes place before we met The Governor in the comic book series, and there’s a lot more story to tell with that guy. We’ll also look at others—Lilly is going to be another focus. It’s going to be fun to explore those characters again.”
