A tender addition to the #1 New York Times bestselling Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas, bridging the events of A Court of Wings and Ruin and upcoming books.
Feyre, Rhysand, and their friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly altered world beyond, recovering from the war that changed everything. But Winter Solstice is finally approaching, and with it, the joy of a hard-earned reprieve.
Yet even the festive atmosphere can't keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, her concern for those dearest to her deepens. They have more wounds than she anticipated-scars that will have a far-reaching impact on the future of their court.
Bridging the events of A Court of Wings and Ruin with the later books in the series, A Court of Frost and Starlight explores the far-reaching effects of a devastating war and the fierce love between friends.
This book really didn’t stand on its own very well. I have enjoyed the other books in the series, but they were about good vs evil and strong female characters an this one was about...real estate? It just seemed a little too domesticated for these characters. The author agrees in the Q&A in the back that the book is a little more than a novella, but it’s not really described as such. Good for a quickie, but be warned it’s just a Christmas special with no real story or teeth.35
But not what I wanted. Am looking forward to the next book though55
It’s a sweet way to say goodbye to some of the storylines, while at the same time opening up some other ones. I love the characters so much, I’ve re-read the series more times than I can count. This novella was so cute, well-written (as usual), and just lovely. I can’t wait for the next installment. My favorite series to date!!!!55
I know a lot of people are kind of disappointed with this, but I loved it. It was just the right thing for me to end the series (for now) as I got a little glimpse of their lives after the war. I will take any small part of story SJM will give because I love the characters and story so much. But SJM also explains a little on why it’s a novella and her reasons are perfectly sound. Nesta’s story is supposedly next after this, so I am excited!55
