Book Summary: Gambit and Rogue are throwing a party, and you’re invited! Guest-starring every X-Man their apartment can fit! Hey, who invited the Thieves Guild?!
Book Review: With their adventure in space over and done, it is time for Remy and Anna Marie to settle down into marital bliss.

What better way than to have a party to celebrate not only their return home but also their home.

Unfortunately things don't just go their way. Remy's father appears to warn him that he's about to be attack and from the skyliner, a set of thieves burst forth to attack Remy and his father. Of course this doesn't make Rogue happy at all and sets them to take it outside. Rogue does join her husband on the roof to rid themselves of the pesky intruders and shows them exactly how unhappy she is by their unannounced arrival by unleashing the full magnitude of her powers.

Later both Belle, Remy's ex-wife, and Magneto, Rogue's ex, end up showing up. For both, the parallel of wanting to see the marriage of Remy and Rogue succeed is something I never thought I would see when it comes to both Belle and Magneto. Both offer advice - or a warning from one and the other asking for both to trust each other.

As the party winds down, Beast finds Rogue to give her a new power-neutral bracelet.

But things are not quiet. Not by the least. As Remy and Anna kiss, something changes for them and they both find themselves hanging by a thread (s0 t0 speak).

This series has been great. It appears Gambit and Rogue don't seem to catch a break to enjoy a quiet, married life but I suppose being X-Men they will never catch a break whatsoever. So where is this series going? It appears to me that we are about to see Mojo.

I cannot wait for the next issue. It was wonderful seeing Gambit and Rogue in their older costumes at the end. I have always had a love for those. I hated the fact that after the movies came out that Rogue's skunk-like hair was changed to fit the movie.

I miss Gambit being in his original costume. I don't think I have seen it on him in quite some time (unless I have missed it somewhere in other series).

So in conculsion, I am looking forward to seeing how the next storyline plays out.
