Rogue’s frightening new mutant powers keep her at arms-length from the world, but two strangers offer a chance to change her life forever, in this exhilarating Marvel Super Hero adventure
Young Rogue’s life is a mess: she’s on her own, working a terrible diner job and hiding from everyone. The powers she has started to develop are terrifying: when your first kiss almost kills the guy, it’s hard to trust anyone – even yourself. Then two people arrive in town who could change her life, and she finally gets a choice: try her luck with the big-haired billionaire who claims to be scouting for gifted interns, or trust the rakish Cajun gambler with the eerie red eyes. But these two aren’t the only ones interested in a mutant just coming into her powers. Rogue will have to master her abilities and decide her own fate – before someone else does.

"Highly entertaining, Untouched fills that need for Rogue fans who want more than the short portions of a story that comics provide. Untouched pulls from classic Rogue canon (the infamous Cody kiss) and the chemistry between Rogue and Gambit. What it feels like is a new modern spin on the character with references to Instagram plus Rogue’s desire to go to college and to get away from her small town and the bad memories it holds."

"Rogue: Untouched is a novel that brings a flair of action, romance and drama paying respect to longtime readers while serving as a perfect jumping on point for anyone interested in reading about Rogue and other mutants."

"This is a fun and exciting new origin story for Rogue. It’s not an X-Men book, but fans will recognize several well-known characters from the comics. The story builds a slow burn with drama building to an exciting, power-packed show-down. With a thrilling plot with plenty of suspense and mystery, I thoroughly enjoyed this fantastic, original Rogue novel."
