The Walking Dead proved to be the zombie series people were waiting for; whether you are a fan of the show looking for a refresher for what happened in season one, or just want to know what all the fuss is about, then this is the book for you.

She has weathered over four years of the apocalypse. She has done things that she would not have dreamt of doing in her darkest nightmares. But she has survived.
