4 out of 5 stars

Lilly Caul, an emotionally compromised young woman with a body as frail as her mindTWD road to woodbury
finds herself smack dab in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. Caul and
boyfriend Josh find their way to a seemingly sound makeshift community,
Woodbury. The community contains all of the essentials necessary for survival,
a medical team, guards taking shifts on protective walls, food, water etc…From
the very beginning Lilly has an eerie feeling about the place, and it’s not
just because of the zombies or “biters” roaming about outside! Woodbury has a
secret, a secret that most townspeople didn’t even know about, a secret kept by
the Governor. Not only must Lilly brave the raging war between humans and zombies
but she has taken it upon herself to find where the Governors true loyalties

Road to Woodbury is an overall exciting story.  The writing styles of Kirkman and Bonansinga are interesting yet at times overly descriptive and may become boring at moments in the book.  The story is told in the third person and based mainly on Lilly Caul, the girl who finds the confidence she needs to do what she must. This is not your standard gory, zombie, fiction; the interaction between characters is complex and the emotion is portrayed beautifully, as if you are in the characters shoes. I recommend this book to any fans of the popular T.V series “The Walking Dead” or really anyone looking for a mature action-fantasy.
