If, like me, you are late to the party, this is a really good book to start with. Absolutely should not be considered a YA read.

If you love The Walking Dead, show and/or comics, check this out!

It's a good standalone as well, but if you know The Governor from either the show or the comics you'll appreciate this a lot more.

The end has a plot twist that blew my mind, I still can't find the words.

Definitely 18+ due to content. Unsure why this one is shelved in YA when the rest of the series is adult.

Full review to come.

This book gave me a better understanding of the how and why of the Governor's existence. Very interesting read and great companion piece to the graphic novels (which are amazing, by the way).

I love the television drama series, ‘The Walking Dead.’ Rise of the Governor - The Walking Dead was a very interesting book. This book revealed a few facts that I had not known about the Governor. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.

I read this novel, following the graphic novels and absolutely loved this book. It had great character development and an unanticipated twist. Definately a page turner.

Quite well-written .... considering it's a book about Zombies. I enjoyed it. It's probably better if you have read the graphic novels.

Written like a bad screen play, this is terrible. Don't bother. I only read it because I love the TV show and I was curious.

Great introduction of a pivotal character in the Walking Dead graphic novels and upcoming 3rd season of the AMC tv series. It's not necessary to have read the graphic novels first, but it sure blows your mind if you have.
