More zombie apocalypse goodness! Rick and Carl manage to find some of the survivors of their original band, including Michonne, Dale, Andrea, Glenn and Maggie. Rick is losing it a little bit - he's picked up a phone in an abandoned house and uses it to talk to Lori. The smaller group meets up at Hershel's farm and encounters another small band, including a scientist who claims to know the cause of the zombie epidemic, heading to Washington DC. They join forces and hit the road, but things aren't all happiness on the way. Book 6 should be interesting!
