Book DescriptionCaptivating and maybe, just maybe, the best Mary Weber book yet! I have read four other books by Mary Weber. I've read her Storm Siren Trilogy and The Evaporation of Sofi Snow. I have noticed that I sometimes have a hard time at the beginning of her books, but usually that doesn't take too long to change and then I am hooked. To Best the Boys definitely followed this trend. I was a bit concerned I wouldn't be able to get lost in the story the way I love to do, but man by the time the characters made it to the labyrinth I could barely read fast enough. I just had to know what was going to happen! It's seriously hard to even find the words to describe my thoughts on this one. It's absolutely unique but with small reminiscences of some of my other favorite stories such as Hunger Games and Maze Runner. Maybe even a bit of Mulan! I mean Rhen did disguise herself as a boy and showed that she was capable and smart. I loved that it promoted Girl Power without being hateful, preachy, or one-sided. Rhen and Seleni are super close yet are two very different girls who see their ideal roles very differently, but neither look down on the other or think the other should change. That's what I'm talking about! Romance does come into play as a well. Which makes me one happy girl. I have to admit I love how Lute respects Rhen, knows exactly who she is, and likes that about her. He's major boyfriend goals. I seriously loved To Best the Boys! If you like YA fantasy with romance then I think that you will too!
