Overview


The third book in Robert Kirkman's New York Times bestselling series: The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor – Part One!

The Walking Dead original novel series, set in the universe of Robert Kirkman's iconic comic book, continues with The Fall of the Governor – Part One. From co-authors Kirkman, creator of the Eisner Award-winning comic as well as executive producer of AMC's blockbuster TV series, and Jay Bonansinga, Stoker Award-finalist and internationally acclaimed author, comes the gripping third novel in this richly woven, page-turning literary saga, which began with The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor.

In Rise of the Governor, uber-villain Philip Blake journeyed from his humble beginnings directly into the dark heart of the zombie apocalypse, and became the self-proclaimed leader of a small town called Woodbury. In The Road to Woodbury, an innocent traveler named Lilly Caul wound up in the terrifying thrall of Phillip Blake’s twisted, violent dictatorship within Woodbury’s ever tightening barricades.

And now, in The Fall of the Governor – Part One, the Governor’s descent into madness finally erupts in a tour de force of action and horror. Beloved characters from the comic book, including Rick, Michonne and Glenn, finally make their entrance onto this nightmarish stage, and fans of The Walking Dead will see these characters in a whole new light. Simmering grudges boil over into unthinkable confrontations, battle lines are drawn, and unexpected twists seal the fates of the innocent and guilty alike.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

In this Walking Dead trilogy topper, Philip Blake, a.k.a. The Governor, and Rick Grimes meet in a tour de force final showdown. All the stress, tension, and violence of the previous episodes reach their boiling point as memorable characters from the cult-favorite comic book series finally make their entrances. A finale that truly lives up to expectations.

From the Publisher
"The books are a really fun read...It's an interesting look at the universe that you already know and you might learn some things about your favorite characters you never knew." FANBOLT on The Fall of the Governor: Part One and Part Two

Praise for The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury:

“An entertaining read.” —ComicBookMovie.com

“The novel fleshes out . . . backstories and connects them, giving depth to people who remained largely mysteries in the comic books. For comic book readers, the novel is full of easter eggs and surprise connections, making it not only entertaining, but necessarily for filling in the gaps left by the comic books . . . ‘The Road to Woodbury’ is an essential read for any fan of ‘The Walking Dead’.” —Examiner.com

Praise for The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor:

"Zombie-apocalypse stories are perfect for miserable winter weather regardless, but for those obsessed with The Walking Dead (such as yours truly), this is essential reading. This is the epitome of a page-turner, and makes subway rides just breeze by. And, that end –woof."

—REFINERY29

“An excellent companion to the The Walking Dead comic books. The story is enriched by the novel format, and the characterization of the series' most hated villain is something no fan will want to miss.”

Examiner.com

“This book stands alone and is a compelling read for fans of the series or just fans of zombies. Watch out though, because once you get a taste of the particular Kirkman brand of zombie mayhem, catching up on past issues is just around the corner.”

The Ossuary

“The story makes a great novel. You'll get sucked in and can easily visualize everything that is happening. It's simply a great read.”

Comicvine.com

“It takes great advantage of the literary medium in a way that most tie-in books would not.”

TVOverMind.com

“Not for the faint of heart, this book runs on pressure-cooker suspense, graphically described bloodshed, and dark acts of brutality...This riveting character study adds a new dimension to the oeuvre by fleshing out established characters and plot lines.”

    This ends too soon....and was written sloppily but it's ok.

    When I read this book I had the same reaction that I did when I read Road to Woodberry...... I get the impression that the authors did not want to write these books but was contractually obligated to do so.... They both felt forced..

    The very first book rise of the governor was the best and remains in that spot..

    Also in these other two (later) books.... characters use some of the same mannerisms and speech that Brian, Phillip and Nick used among themselves...

    Could have used more editing before pub....

    good part 1 can't wait til part 2, it is interesting to see what

    good part 1 can't wait til part 2, it is interesting to see what was going on in the governors head and in woodberry while the comics told it from ricks and the prisons point of view, all these people that are saying it ended to soon or the ended was terrible... it is just part one there is a whole nother book left. This is a must read for any one who loves the graphic novels

    A disappointment

    I usually love all things "Walking Dead." However, this book seemed to be cashing in on the popularity of the series. It rehashed an old story line with gore and cruelty. As always the characters are fully realized and well done. The plot was spotty. The writing didn't reach these authors' normal standards Not my favorite of any of the series, whether it be the television show, graphic novels or books.

    Things are just as disturbing form the other sides view

    The Fall of the Governor part 1 is probably the best Walking Dead novel yet. Much of this is because its the first novel in the series to directly intersect with the comics. Just like the previous novel the story is told through the perspective of various Woodbury residents and The Governor himself. As comic fans know the events that happen to the characters(Prison and Woodbury alike) during this story arc are pretty extreme and seeing them from a Woodbury/Governor perspective only makes them more disturbing.
