Rogue | [Gina Damico]

Rogue

Lex, a teenage Grim Reaper, has the power to damn souls - and it’s getting out of control. Her boyfriend, Driggs, is dead - sort of. She’s a fugitive, on the run from the maniacal new mayor of Croak and the townspeople who want to see her pay the price for her misdeeds. Uncle Mort rounds up the Junior Grims to flee Croak once again, but this time they’re joined by Grotton, the most powerful Grim of all time. Their new mission is clear: Fix his mistakes, or the Afterlife will cease to exist, along with all the souls in it.

Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, September 2013 - I’ve had an advanced reader’s copy of Rogue for quite some time, but I only read it recently as I was so reluctant to say goodbye to the world that Gina Damico created. The final book in her Croak trilogy took me on a roller coaster of emotions – all the way from laughing to uncontrollably sobbing. This remarkable ability to seamlessly infuse wit and sarcasm with such a grim subject matter truly sets Damico apart. In Rogue, we follow Lex, Uncle Mort, Driggs, and our other favorite grim reapers on their quest to save the Afterlife. While I won’t spoil who wins the war, I will encourage you to keep a tissue box nearby. Jessica Almasy, who did an incredible job bringing these characters to life and giving them each their own unique voice in Books 1 and 2, returns to narrate. —Katie, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

Lex, a teenage Grim Reaper, has the power to damn souls - and it’s getting out of control. Her boyfriend, Driggs, is dead - sort of. She’s a fugitive, on the run from the maniacal new mayor of Croak and the townspeople who want to see her pay the price for her misdeeds.

Uncle Mort rounds up the Junior Grims to flee Croak once again, but this time they’re joined by Grotton, the most powerful Grim of all time. Their new mission is clear: Fix his mistakes, or the Afterlife will cease to exist, along with all the souls in it. The gang heads for Necropolis, the labyrinth-like capital city of the Grimsphere. There, they discover that the Grimsphere needs a reboot. To do that, the portals to the Afterlife must be destroyed...but even that may not be enough to fix the damage.

Things go from bad to worse, and when at last the fate of the afterlife and all the souls of the damned hang in the balance, it falls to Lex and her friends to make one final, impossible choice.

    "Perfect trilogy ender"

    Heartwrenchingly terrible, great - perfect and amazing. I swear to god if anyone ever tries to make this into a movie I will damn them, I will damn them right there on the spot. Oh wait, that wasn't the point... I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I can't help myself. This book, this trilogy, is exactly how it should be, Gina Damico you are brilliant.

    "NOOOOOO!"
    What did you love best about Rogue?

    Sacrifice for the greater good. Wow.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rogue?

    Oh every time Mort catches Lex and Driggs in the act. SO FUNNY!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending. Heartbreaking. Talk about selflessness.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    How far would you go to right a wrong?


    Any additional comments?

    I am sooooo sad to see this series end. I really loved the town of Croak and Lex and the gang. I'll miss these Grims, I feel invested in them. That means Ms. Damico did her job right. I love that even though this was a quite heavy book, it still had those moments of humor which was desperately needed. I'm so glad I picked up the series. HIGHLY recommended.

    It was a roller coaster ride. Lots of action. It was sad, and touching, joyful and hopeful. An awesome book! Another amazing performance by Jessica Almasy

    "Excellent story and narrator "

    Great end to a wonderful beginning. I was drawn in by the story and the narrator kept my attention and I finished the trilogy in the span of 2 weeks. I wish the story never ended but I enjoyed every second of it.

    "God story but the language"

    This is the 3rd book in a series geared primarily towards young adults. The story was good but the this particular book had quite a bit of unnecessary language. It really seemed the author was trying to hard to appeal to an older audience so she threw in a few F-bombs for the heck of it. I am not a prude but when the language isn't necessary and doesn't fit leave it out.

    "The end of the gray trilogy… Sniff, sniff"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I loved all the snarky humor, sarcasm, and the storyline was great! The narration was great as well, I love the voices is that she gave for each character.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rogue?

    I don't want to provide any spoilers, so I can't go into detail, but the ending was very memorable.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Pretty much all of the scenes between Lex and Driggs. Their little love story is so funny, I love it!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Again, the ending. Can't go into it…


    Any additional comments?

    I really loved the series, I was a bit saddened by the end of it. Enough said.

    "And so it ends..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rogue to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the printed version, but the narration was superb!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story flowed ahead, but you found plenty of little whirlpools along the way offering twists to the story.


    What about Jessica Almasy’s performance did you like?

    Jessica offered one of the best performances I've ever heard. There is narration in the book, which I cannot discuss without spoiling it, but Jessica did a spectacular job of bringing Gina's words to life. All I can say is when you hear someone mention the "cusp of autumn" stand by for an amazingly well written dialog.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to listen to this book in one sitting. But at the same time, I did not want it to be over.


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE take the time to listen to all three of these books. They are simply spectacular!

    Would you listen to Rogue again? Why?

    I would listen to Rogue again because I always miss small things, that later turn out to be important. This book is full of


    What other book might you compare Rogue to and why?

    Comparatively, I think this book is much like the last book in the Divergent series, Allegiant.


    What about Jessica Almasy’s performance did you like?

    By book three, I felt that she was really comfortable with the recurring characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You Reap what you sow. Or do you?


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the ending.

    "Bittersweet"
    Where does Rogue rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The whole series is a top favorite, one I will listen to again and again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rogue?

    I can't tell without giving away the ending.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Probably the ferris wheel, it is so Lex.


    Any additional comments?

    The only issue I had with this book was when they were running. Were the guards too stupid to go through the same doors the kids did? Or could they not post guards at the each of the entrances once they figured out what they were doing?

    Other than that, I ADORED the series. I don't often immediately reread (or listen) to a book, but I did on all three books. The narration was excellent also.
