Additional Details

"The zombie plague unleashes its horrors on the suburbs of Atlanta without warning, pitting the living against the dead. Caught in the mass exodus, Lilly Caul struggles to survive in a series of ragtag encampments and improvised shelters. But the Walkers are multiplying. Dogged by their feral hunger for flesh and crippled by fear, Lilly relies on the protection of good Samaritans by seeking refuge in a walled-in town once known as Woodbury, Georgia. At first, Woodbury seems like a perfect sanctuary. Squatters barter services for food, people have roofs over their heads, and the barricade expands, growing stronger every day. Best of all, a mysterious self-proclaimed leader named Philip Blake keeps the citizens in line. But Lilly begins to suspect that all is not as it seems. Blake, who has recently begun to call himself The Governor, has disturbing ideas about law and order. Ultimately, Lilly and a band of rebels open up a Pandora's box of mayhem and destruction when they challenge The Governor's reign. and the road to Woodbury becomes the highway to hell in this riveting follow-up to the New York Times bestselling The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor"

"First came the ground-breaking comic book series. Then came the record-breaking television show. Next, the bestselling novel, Rise of the Governor. Now, having peered into the Governor's horrific past in the first book, this riveting sequel delves into Philip Blake's ascension as the leader of Woodbury. But it won't be easy . . . there are those within this walled-off city who don't trust Philip or his motives . . . or the strange scratching sounds that come from his apartment. But Philip Blake is determined to turn Woodbury into a haven from the post-apocalyptic nightmare surrounding Woodbury, and he'll do whatever necessary to make sure that his vision sees fruition. Even if that means killing the people currently in charge"

What a shame, this is spun off from great source material.

I quit after a few chapters. After the lemon that was Rise of the Governor, and then this turkey: "Was she leading him on? Was she manipulating him for protection? The rhetorical questions remained unanswered..." I decided I have better things to spend my reading time on.
