Fangirls, I don’t profess to know much about the X-Men. That’s what Alyssa is great at. But my friend offered my her copy of Rogue Touch by Christine Woodward the other day, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.
Rogue Touch is a 273 page novel focusing on the character Rogue from Marvel’s X-Men. Unlike most of the comics, Rogue Touch concentrates on her life before Charles Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters.
Its a neat idea, Fangirls. I love retellings, and I honestly don’t know a ton about the X-Men, so it was neat to experience the beginning of Rogue’s story this way. It starts with her losing her job, and a bizarre man named Touch helps her run away after she puts her ex-boss into a coma. They go on an outlaw adventure, running from both of their pasts on the way.
The writing for this book isn’t ground-breaking, but it’s definitely solid. It’s an exciting adventure with time-travel, lies, and love. It’s a very easy and fun read, and I recommend it to everyone!
