synopsis from Goodreads:
Feyre, Rhys, and their close-knit circle of friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, 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, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated–scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.
This is just going to be a short review, because it’s a novella there isn’t much I can say without spoiling it. How gorgeous is the cover though?! I think it might be my favourite Maas cover to date.
I don’t know what to say! A new Sarah J Maas book is always a highlight of my year and A Court of Frost and Starlight is no exception. I stayed up till nearly five am to read it in one sitting, I couldn’t put it down. I just sat and cried after finishing it because it was just so beautiful. Set after the events in A Court of Wings and Ruin and told from the POV of several characters, including Feyre and Rhys (I’m not giving away the others) in the run up to the Winter Solstice. Its such a lovely festive story. A large chunk of it is based around present buying etc, but it was nice to see them so happy. I do wish a certain character was in it more, they’re my favourite so I’ll always want more and I really do miss them. I wish there was more from Nests in it, she’s always been one of my favourites and I’d love to have seen a little more from her perspective. I love how far Feyre has come and how she continues to grow during ACOFAS.
It felt like returning to old friends and made me realise just how much I missed Prythian. One of my favourite things about this this series is the humour and banter between characters. I will never tire of this world of the characters in it. I love them all so much. It was nice to see where the Night Court and Rhysand’s inner circle are now. How everyone has come together to rebuild after the war. Not forgetting characters from the other courts. It’s not all happy but you don’t expect it to be, I can’t wait to see what happens next in Prythian. I need another book asap! I can’t recommend these books enough!
Have you read any of Sarah’s books? I’d love to read your thoughts, let me know in the comments!
