Full Fiendish Findings...
 
 

Anna Marie is young and on her own…

After a heartbreaking experience with her first kiss, Anna Marie is left with the realization that her touch itself is deadly. Any amount of skin to skin contact causes a deadly transfer of memories, feelings, and even life force itself that Anna Marie is powerless to control. Her only option, as she sees it, is to disappear – and so she left her home, and everything familiar, to strike off on her own.

But life isn’t easy for someone forced to cover nearly every part of her body to protect those around her. Of course she can tell no one, but her look isn’t doing her any favors in the jobs department. Wearing gloves and a leather coat in the heat of a Mississippi summer, combined with the pure white streaks that appeared in her hair after the fateful first kiss, don’t exactly inspire a lot of confidence in prospective employers. Making ends meet is a constant struggle, but when Anna Marie meets a young man in just as much trouble as she is, she can’t stop herself from trying to help him out – even if it means going hungry herself.

Rogue Touch is the tale of Rogue, in between. Of course, fans are familiar with her fateful first encounter, the streaks in her hair, etc. – but what went on the years in between discovering her abilities and being master of them? How did she get her name? Where did she learn to control those abilities? Rogue Touch gives some of the answers, and hints at more, with a touching story  that takes you inside the young mind of a developing Rogue.

Her struggle to keep herself from causing harm with her unwanted abilities is profound, particularly as she begins to fall in love with the unusual man named Touch. Even more so, learning to use her abilities when necessary to protect what she holds dear is a constant balance. Should she touch someone, even inadvertently, it causes an instant coma or even death – a useful tool should her life truly be threatened, but a difficult moral dilemma indeed. On top of that, should she decide to use her deadly force, she must face the prospect of carrying that person along with her – thoughts and memories that are not her own, values that may not mesh with her own – for the rest of her life.

Rogue Touch fills a void in the life of Rogue, with an adventure filled tale of life and death, love and romance, past and future, that will keep you guessing till the end. Comic fan or not, it’s a gripping read that puts you inside the head of a truly intriguing character.
