The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury is a post-apocalyptic horror novel written by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga and released October 16 2012. The novel is a spin-off of Kirkman's series of graphic novels and explores the back-story of one of the series' most infamous characters, Lilly Caul. The Road to Woodbury is the second in a trilogy of novels,[1] following The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor and preceding The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor (Parts I and II).[2]

Plot[edit]

The book focuses on Lilly and her path to Woodbury, Georgia, a perfect sanctuary and rural town that is barricaded and walled to separate the living from the undead. Everything seems perfect in this town as food, shelter and security are provided, and the town itself expands and grows stronger every day. However, Woodbury's leader, Philip Blake, keeps the citizens in line, and Lilly begins to suspect all is not as it seems. Blake, who has recently begun to call himself The Governor, has disturbing ideas about law and order. Lilly and a group of rebels band together to fight The Governor and open up a Pandora’s box of mayhem and destruction, when they challenge his reign.
