Rick promised the Hilltop colony that he and his group would protect them from the Saviors, which is led by Negan. But, Rick doesn't realize what they are up against. Soon enough he does and really has to think of what to do next.
Negan finally shows up in this volume. I've heard a lot about him and people have said he is worse than the Governor. So far, that seeming to be true. It was a good volume, but [of course I'm upset about Abraham and Glenn. Glenn died in a really horrible way, thanks to Negan. So far I think this is a great series. It keeps wanting to read and wanting to find out what happens next.
