Robert Kirkman'sTHE WALKING DEAD: DESCENT

Out of the ashes of its dark past, Woodbury, Georgia, becomes an oasis of safety amidst the plague of the walking dead, a town reborn in the wake of its former tyrannical leader, Philip Blake, aka The Governor. Blake's legacy of madness still haunts this little walled community but Lilly Caul and a small ragtag band of survivors are determined to overcome their traumatic past...even as a vast stampede of zombies is closing in on them. Soon Lilly and the beleaguered townspeople must join forces with a mysterious religious sect fresh from the wilderness. Led by an enigmatic preacher named Jeremiah, this rogue church group seems tailor-made for Woodbury and Lilly's dream of a democratic, family-friendly future. But Jeremiah and his followers harbor a dark secret, the evidence of which very gradually begins to unravel. Now Lilly is caught in the dark center of a growing conflict...and it will take all of her instincts and skills to survive both the living and the dead.
"An excellent companion to the Walking Dead comic books [that] no fan will want to miss."-Examiner.com

Excerpt from book:

ONE

 

On that quiet morning, two separate and troubling problems lie just beneath the surface of that burned husk of a village—both issues, at least initially, going completely unnoticed by the residents.

The drumming of hammers and rasping of saws fill the air. Voices rise on the wind in busy call-and-response. The congenial odors of woodsmoke, tar pitch, and compost infuse the warm breezes. A sense of renewal—maybe even of hope—thrums beneath the surface of all the activity. The oppressive heat of summer, still a good month or two away, has not yet wilted the wild Cherokee roses growing in profusion along the abandoned train tracks, and the sky has that high-def, robin’s-egg brilliance that skies around these parts get in the fleeting last weeks of spring.

Spurred on by their tumultuous regime change, as well as the possibility of a new democratic way of life amid the ruins of the plague, the people of Woodbury, Georgia—a onetime railroad burg fifty miles south of Atlanta, only recently reduced to scorched buildings and battered, scarred, littered roadways—have reconstituted themselves like strands of DNA, forming a sturdier and healthier organism. Lilly Caul is a big reason for this renaissance. The slender, comely, battle-bitter young woman with the dishwater auburn hair and heart-shaped face has become the reluctant leader of the village.

At this moment, in fact, her voice can be heard from every quarter, ca

“The Walking Dead series…has taken the zombie apocalypse story everyone has long since gotten over and done it transcendentally well for an unusually long time. Readers might suspect that in this fourth Walking Dead novel, Descent, the charm might be wearing off [but] Descent maintains the series' strength due to the author's truly powerful ability to describe the series' world and to establish tone, pacing, kinesthetics, and every other nut and bolt that holds a good novel together.” —Booklist on Descent

“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

“An entertaining read.” —ComicBookMovie.com on The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury

“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 on The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury

“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 on The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor

“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 on The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor

“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 on The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor

“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 on The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor

“It takes great advantage of the literary medium in a way that most tie-in books would not.” —TVOverMind.com on The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor

“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.” —School Library Journal on The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor
