From Amazon:
It's the moment that X-Fans have been waiting for - Rogue makes her return to the X-Books. But while Xavier seeks out Rogue, who is searching for him? Hunter becomes hunted and friend becomes foe, in a story that will change your favorite Southern Belle forever. Plus: Professor X's odyssey brings him full circle as he answers a call from the Acolytes. But what do they want? Revenge? Or a new leader? Xavier's LEGACY journey ends here, and it's a doozie Collects X-Men: Legacy #219-225

OK, so I don't know exactly where Legacy is going these days. It only seems to be around as a series to revise and sort out all the side stories that have been dangling around in the X-universe for years. Sorting out Professor X. Mr. Sinister. Wolverine and Daken. Now Rogue and Danger. Don't get me wrong, it's good that these plots are finally being dealt with, but it just seems like they are rushing through all of them right now so that they can finally start integrating Legacy back into the mainstream stories. Which is fine. It looks like Legacy will be involved with the Utopia crossover, which is good, since it will seem like the series actually has some direction again.
