Book Summary: Gambit and Rogue’s honeymoon/mission has been crashed by the likes of Deadpool, the Imperial Guard, the Technet, Deathbird, Shi’ar rebels…and now the Starjammers! Best honeymoon ever?
Book Review: So this will end the space arc and begin something new for both Gambit and Rogue - domesticated life as a married couple. Of course neither of them had a proper honeymoon given that Kitty had an important mission that needed their attention straight away.
And what had been so important? An egg. An egg that contained the child belonging to Charles Xavier and his late love, Lilandra. Unfortunately it seemed that everyone in the universe far and wide were after this child. She was, after all, proving to be powerful and anyone whom had her could be able to use this to their advantage.
For Gambit and Rogue, this meant going up against the former members of Lilandra's honor guard as well as Deathbird, Lilandra's sister.
As Gambit and Rogue fought off these groups with the help of the Starjammers, both Xandra and Rogue saw no other way but to make the others believe that the two of them had exploded. Even Gambit would be left out from knowing of the plan.
And he would not take it well when it came to the big reveal and he learned that neither Rogue nor Xandra actually exploded. Unfortunately at this time, Rogue's powers go haywire and it ends up kinda scaring her for life. Both she and Gambit reconcile and end up returning to Earth.
This series continues to amaze and I have quite enjoyed this series immensely. I am sad to see that we may not get to see anymore Xandra anymore but I am hoping there is a small chance she might reappear some time later on in the future. She was a rather interesting character and I would love to see how the other X-Men will react to her especially when they learn she is their mentor's daughter.
As for Gambit and Rogue, we will get to see how their domestic life is going to be. We know being X-Men means that married life is never easy for them and I will expect this to be the same for Gambit and Rogue as well. I am sure there might be a time when something may or may not come between them but I hope it doesn't mean that will tear them apart completely.
Overall this is an enjoyable series and if you are looking for something worth reading, then this series will definitely be the series for you. The art is wonderful and storyline has been quite worth immersing yourself into.
