"An interesting take on Rogue, as her powers take her down a path I never would have imagined." --Chris Claremont, author of Dragon Moon and writer for seventeen years of Uncanny X-Men Eighteen-year-old Anna Marie was just fired for the third time--this time from a bakery. Why can't she hold a job? Well, for starters, she dresses . . . differently. She looks like a Goth girl to the extreme, her shock of white hair contrasting with her head-to-toe black garb, her face the only skin she chooses to reveal. But Anna Marie doesn't have a choice. Her skin, her touch, is a deadly weapon that must be concealed. She accidentally put her first boyfriend, Cody, in a coma when they kissed. Horrified, she ran away to Jackson, Mississippi, where she's been living alone in a cramped apartment and scraping by on food stamps. Then she meets otherworldly James and everything changes. He's just like her--completely alone and also on the run. To elude James's mysterious and dangerous family, the pair takes to the highway. As they cross the country, their simmering attraction intensifies and they both open up about their secretive pasts. James reveals that his true name is Touch and he christens Anna Marie Rogue. But with danger at their heels, they know they can't run forever. Rogue must decide if she'll unleash her devastating powers once again, which she swore never to do, in order to save the only person who seems truly to understand and accept her. "A lost chapter from Rogue's past, told with elegance and conviction and attention to detail. Really entertaining." --Mike Carey, author of the Felix Castor novels and writer of X-Men: Legacy

Anna Marie's skin is dangerous to touch. She accidentally put her boyfriend in a coma that he hasn't woken up from and probably never will, which is why she ran away from home. To protect people from her deadly touch, Anna Marie dresses to cover up all of her skin except her face. But this makes it ...

My Rating – 2 Stars*I received a digital copy of this novel from Netgalley on behalf of Hyperion*Anna Marie is a good southern girl, who only wants to kiss her friend Cody. If you are at all familiar with the character of Rogue, you know that doesn’t turn out well. Her kiss puts Cody in a coma and A...

There are some things you may not know about me. I’m a dork. A big one. I want to go to comic conventions. I want to dress up. The full enchilada. Make-up. Hair. Costume. My favorite character is NOT Superman. (I rather dislike Superman actually). I collect comic books. X-Men to be more exact. :) ...

In a word this book is insulting.Rogue is an iconic figure to those of us who grew up with her and so I know it would be close to impossible to please a long time X-Men fan like myself, but comic book fans are notorious for being hard to please, so Woodward should have seen this coming and not so co...
