The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury (The Governor Trilogy #2) by Robert Kirkman, Jay Bonansinga, 277 pages, read by Angie, on 01/20/2013

road to woodbury This is the second book in the Walking Dead trilogy. It tells the story of Lilly Caul and how she came to Woodbury. Lilly is a survivor from Georgia who is part of a large group. She and a few others leave the group and set off on their own. They eventually reach Woodbury. Some of the group find their place right away. Bob, the drunken Army medic, becomes a favorite of the governor. Megan becomes a prostitute selling herself to survive. Scott, Megan’s druggy boyfriend, disappears. Lilly and Josh are left wary of Woodbury and its leader the Governor.

I really enjoyed this book as a addendum to the series. Lilly and Bob are both seen briefly in the comics. Bob is given the tasks of fixing the Governor after Michonne has her way with him and of taking care of Penny. Lilly is actually responsible for killing Lori and Judy and because of that she kills the Governor. I love that these little characters are given a backstory and a book of their own. I found their journey interesting. I think Lilly’s story is a fascinating one. She goes from basically helpless and reliant on others to survive to part of the Governor’s army. I am a little confused on how she went from hating the Governor to fighting for him but I think it is all part of surviving the world of the zombie apocalypse.
