Publisher's Summary

The latest novel in the Walking Dead saga: Kirkman and Bonansinga team up again to take listeners back into the Walking Dead universe. The Walking Dead series of original novels, set in the universe of Robert Kirkman's iconic comic, takes listeners down new roads in The Walking Dead: Descent. From coauthors Robert Kirkman, creator of the Eisner Award winning comic book and executive producer of AMC's blockbuster TV series, and Jay Bonansinga, Stoker award finalist and internationally acclaimed author, comes the gripping fifth in this richly woven, pause-resisting literary saga, which began with The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor.
In Rise of the Governor, uber-villain Philip Blake journeyed from his humble beginnings directly into the dark heart of the zombie apocalypse, and became the self-proclaimed leader of a small town called Woodbury. In book two, The Road to Woodbury, an innocent traveler named Lilly Caul wound up in the terrifying thrall of Phillip Blake’s twisted, violent dictatorship within Woodbury's ever tightening barricades. In The Fall of the Governor, Part One, classic characters from both the comic and television series, including Rick, Michonne, and Glenn, finally made their appearance in theWalking Dead novel series, only to discover that the Governor is a very dangerous enemy. Now, the Walking Dead series of novels continues with more fan favorite characters from the comic book and TV show.

Loved it!

These books completely surprised me. I thought I was going to listen to a story about Woodberry's residents side of the experience, and what I got was a completely new story. They give us new characters to love and hate and new experiences for the characters we already love from the TV version of walking dead. I highly recommend these books!

Another amazing installment in the series

These books are coming out so quickly that you would think it would be impossible to keep them this well written but it isn't. I am a big fan of the show but the seasons have such few episodes and the wait between seasons is so long. I think I have come to appreciate the books even more than the show.

Not the best

What did you like about this audiobook?

I thought the continuation of the story was inevitable and the length of the book was good.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

My interest has sadly decreased with this episode.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

Very graphic descriptions of weaponry and death blows of zombies. Very atmospheric

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

I think the narrator is brilliant until he starts his prolonged screaming talk. Everybody who gets angry be it male or female sounds the same, an aggressive snarl that worked well for the governor in previous books but doesn't work well with everyone else. It makes the book difficult to listen to as all the characters appear to be aggressive with each other even when they are supposed to be sympathetic or loving etc.
