The Fall of the Governor, Part 1 by Robert Kirkman Author · Fred Berman Narrator

The third book in Robert Kirkman’s New York Times bestselling series, The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor!

The Walking Dead original novel series, set in Robert Kirkman’s iconic universe, continues with The Fall of the Governor. From co-authors 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 third novel in this richly woven, page-turning 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 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.

And now, in The Fall of the Governor, the Governor’s complex story continues in a tour de force of action and horror. Iconic characters from the comic book, including Rick, Michonne and Glenn, finally make their entrance onto this nightmarish stage, and fans of The Walking Dead will see these characters in a whole new light.

The Scarlet Gospels by Clive Barker

“All is death, woman. All is pain. Love breeds loss. Isolation breeds resentment. No matter which way we turn, we are beaten. Our only true inheritance is death. And our only legacy, dust.”

Since Halloween is just around the corner, I thought I’d read something a bit scarier than normal. I tend to shy away from Clive Barker (after having read some disturbing materials earlier on) and I thought to myself – how bad can it be, especially now, in the month of spooks!

The result of the 8h uninterrupted reading was the realization that Clive Barker is a freaking Goth genius. His work is dark, goes all the way to the most unbelievable aspects of fantasy and the horror is made even stronger by the use of Pinhead. This was a scary ride and I totally recommend it to any horror fans out there.
