Namera [The Literary Invertebrate]


In hindsight, I was totally the wrong audience for this book, so I won't be rating it.

I know NOTHING about Marvel. Zip. Nada. Zilch. I haven't watched the films or read the comics, and I've no idea who any of the characters are. But I requested this one because a) I like Alisa Kwitney's writing and b) the premise sounded interesting, so I figured this could be my intro to the Marvel world.

But I developed a suspicion pretty quickly that the book wouldn't finish with the romance in the place I

Me: Wouldn’t it be great if there was a new Marvel book series?
Marvel: *Releases Marvel Heroines series*
Me: THANK YOU!

I loved Alisa Kwitney’s take on Rogue’s personality. Anne Marie (aka Rogue) is one of those characters you’re desperate to learn more about. Her power - absorbing powers, energy and memories - and her fear of the consequences of using it (draining people/making them vulnerable) creates a brilliant conflict which makes her story perfect for the novel medium. I love that this was a

Rogue: Untouched is novelization of the origin story of my favorite X-Men. It does take some artistic license and it’s not exactly true to Cannon, but I definitely enjoyed this version of the story. This is when Rogue first discovers her powers and so she is not the bada** that we have come to know and love. She’s a bit down on their luck and just trying to get by when she crosses paths with one of my other favorite X-Men, Gambit. This is before he has joined and he’s running with a rough crowd. ...more

I’ve always liked Rogue as a character after seeing her in some of the X-Men films and I think it’s awesome that she gets her own extra chance to shine in her very own book! I love that this is a book based on her and her story, as it brings something different aside from the comics. I do love reading novels about the comic book characters, especially when they’re done well!

This was brilliant and I loved the story. The plot was great and it was so easy to get into from the get go. I quickly warm

A exciting and fun take on Anne-Marie, aka Rogue’s, origin story! The story follows a young Rogue as she still doesn’t realize she has powers and her encounter with our other favorite mutant, Gambit and the mess they find themselves in, not only their feelings, but the literal mutant hunting kind. Rogue takes in Remy after a fight she saves him from and he crashes at her place and soon they find themselves bonding. Too bad Remy has a long list of people after him and he might have failed to ment ...more

This book was received as an ARC from Aconyte Books in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

Being a fan of X-Men I knew Rogue and her powers but within the book it took me a while to discover it was really her. However, I appreciated Rogue's back story on how she was a normal struggling teenage girl and then discovers the strength of her powers almost preventing her from living the teenage lifestyle. Once I read on the story, everyth

Rogue has been my favorite X-Men character for over 25 years and Romy is my original OTP (One True Pairing.) This is a really delightful new take on our untouchable southern belle and while not exactly comic canon, it combines many "multiverse" retellings throughout the years with it's own unique twist. The moment I began reading it, I instantly heard Lenore Zann's "X-Men: The Animated Series" Rogue in my head (not to mention Chris Potter's Gambit voice... ::swoon::) Even for this die-hard X-fan ...more

Without realising I thought this to be a graphic comic book when I clicked to review. In a way Im glad that it was a traditional book. I personally am not an X-men fan however this made reading this book so much easier. I had no clue on the back stories of the characters and this made this story more enjoyable. I personally think this could become a graphic novel pretty easily.
The story itself was engaging enough that I read 90% in 1 day and proceeded to read the next morning when I woke up. I

This Rogue novel was a lot of fun! This doesn't follow the official X-men canon, but I personally thought that allowed Kiwtney to be more imaginative, and for Rogue to be more of a three-dimensional character. Rogue is a waitress at a diner, and dreaming of a collegiate future at Tulane. Then her paths cross with Remy (who will eventually become Gambit), and Rogue realizes that she isn't just a boring old human, after all!

I was expecting this to be a graphic novel, but honestly, it worked quite

Thank you Netgalley for letting me read this book in return for an honest review.

Rogue is my favourite mutant, she has been since I was four years old. Remy has been a close favourite as well which is really good considering he has such a prominent role in this! This book is full of x-men cameos which is great and was when I realised who they were, I was grinning from ear to ear. While I would say there are a few creative liberties (which is to be expected with a book rather than a comic/graphic

I'm the author of YA, graphic novels and novels for adults who still feel young, at least most of the time.
My latest books are Cadaver & Queen from Harlequin Teen, a Feminist Frankenstein meets Grey's Anatomy tale, and Mystik U from DC Comics, which features Zatanna and other magical characters in their first year at college.

My first novel, Till the Fat Lady Sings, is also about college and roman
