If, like me, you really enjoyed the brilliantly rendered post-zombie apocalypse that the recent TV show The Walking Dead offered up (and by enjoyed, I mean compulsively tuning in each week to see some new major character ripped apart and eaten by shuffling, mindless brain-thirsty living corpses - yay!), then this is for you!
The first in a trilogy of stand-alone novels penned by thriller author Jay Bonansinga teamed with series (and original graphic novel) creator Robert Kirkman, The Walking Dead: The Rise of the Governor is a paperback original release from Tor UK.

Set in the world created by Robert Kirkman this standalone trilogy is fast-paced, action-packed storytelling about the lengths some men will go to survive. With new characters, new storylines and with the same in-depth character-based plotting that has made the television series such an immediate hit, this trilogy of novels is sure to be a hit with those who love zombies and those who have loved the TV series and comic books.
