      Brent and Maggie Gill become something more than just a 15 year boy and a 17 year old girl when exposed to a strange substance that was found when they were on a desert hike with their father.The resulting events after this exposure takes us into the realm of fantasy and a dark look into the fine line that separates good from evil. A line that once crossed becomes harder and harder to resist.

      First, this book is certainly written for a YA crowd. Don't make the mistake of thinking otherwise. The designation itself doesn't make that a bad thing but there were certain things lacking in this story that had nothing to do with the genre.I have been a fan of Wellington since Monster Island and I was looking forward to reading his take on teens with superpowers. With Rivals, what I got was something a little too short and underdeveloped. The plot was reminiscent of Chronicle without the emot [...]

      Awesome read! 5 full stars. If you are looking for an action-packed, super-hero Young Adult book than pick this up.I was locked into this story from the first pages. The brother-sister hero-villain dynamics was captivating. As the story progressed I was able to understand why each of the characters changed so much from the same experience. I felt for the siblings as they attempted to remake their lives.The combat scenes were intense. I mean I found myself saying "Ouch! Thats gotta hurt!" While I [...]

      It was okay, I suppose. I just didn't really get into the story, you know? It is the kind of book that has one point, but doesn't develop over the course of the story. It just had reoccurring scenes, mainly. Now, I'm not really into the whole "superheroes" thing, so that is probably one of my reasons for not loving it. The only reason I bought it was because it was free on , so for a free book the quality wasn't bad. I just had a hard time connecting with the characters and storyline. It was goo [...]

      I really enjoyed this story. David Wellington takes a not so original idea and creates a great story out of it. It reminds me a little with the movie Chronicle where some teenagers (in this instance 2 teenagers) get exposed to something (possibly of alien origin) and get super powers. With a title of "Rivals" it's obvious one will be the villain and one will be the hero. I liked the main characters of Brent and Maggie. The side characters worked out pretty well too. The plot was interesting and [...]

      What does it take to turn a brother against his sister? Brent, Maggie and their father used to take hikes in the desert. It used to be fun. Until the day they found something unearthly and it changed them all forever. The thing that killed their father turned Brent and Maggie into something more than they had been. It made them stronger and faster. It made them superheroes and celebrities. It made them rivals. Archenemies. The thing in the desert tore their world apart. And now nobody is safe

      This would probably be a great read for a younger teen. I downloaded it because it was free and I thought superheros could be fun. It was a great idea, but never really grabbed my attention and didn't seem really flushed out.

      This book would make an amazing TV show.

      Good v. EvilThis was a great story. Very entertaining and the story did not drag on. Very well written and enjoyed the characters in this story.

      Grabbed this as a free book on amazon and was surprised. It held my attention and I liked the way the kids took different paths. Would recommend.

    • Jason says:

      I was hoping for a little more superhero, but a story about siblings dealing with tragedy with a little powered flavor was still worth the read.

    • Sean Randall says:

      Not a badly written yarn, but without much going power. I wasn't overly thrilled and didn't find the ending to surprise or entertain overmuch.

      As a grown up, it is a fun, quick read if you need something to get your blood moving a little bit.
