Why You Should Read This:
I haven’t read much X-Men fic but I enjoy Regann’s Teen Wolf stories so I decided to give this a try. I’m really glad I did. This story picks up right where the movie left off. This story feels like part of the movie universe. The reader gets intriguing glimpse of one possible future for the X-Men. Many characters from the movie make an appearance. The characterizations are very impressive.
I really enjoyed the author’s take on Charles and Eric’s relationship. Regann made me believe that Eric and Charles could be in love with one another. The mpreg is well done and there are some cute kid moments as well as a few surprises through out the story.
