Book Review: A Court Of Frost And Starlight (A Court Of Thorns And Roses #3.1) by: Sarah J. Maas

Release Date: May 1, 2018
from Bloomsbury USA Childrens
Goodreads | Amazon

"Narrated by Feyre and Rhysand, this bridges the events in A Court of Wings and Ruin and the upcoming novels in the series.

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."


My Thoughts:

Picking up a new book in this series is like going home. I’ve come to love this world and these characters so much and I could read about them forever. I was so excited for this novella and it delivered in every way.

I forever love Rhys and Feyre and getting a glimpse into their lives post A Court of Wings And Ruin was so wonderful. They are both still coping and learning how to live with the tragedy they have been through, but they are also happy and grateful for the life they’ve been given together. I loved watching them just being together without a big threat looming and seeing them just be. I just forever love these two so much.

And of course I love my Court Of Dreams. I forget how I ever survived the first book without them because they just feel so vital to it all and then I remember there was a time without them and HOWWWWW. Azriel is forever my favorite and somehow I came to love him even more in this one. Cassian is still a riot, but also has so much more going on than he lets on. I love Mor and admire her for her strength and resilience. And Amren is… well… she’s Amren. I’ve also really come to love Elain and admire her own brand of strength. And then there is Nesta. I swear I want to love her, because I admire her strength and complexities, but girl makes me crazy. I’m like Rhys in many ways. I want to be kind and like her because Feyre loves her so much. But I also cannot forgive her for what she did and how she treated Feyre for years. Especially when she is still doing these things. But again I feel for her because I know she hasn’t had it easy. I also liked seeing Tamlin again because that douche canoe got what he deserved.

A Court Of Frost And Starlight gave me everything I was expecting from the story. It gave me a glimpse into their lives and I got to see how they were rebuilding and moving on. But it also laid the foundation for the rest of the series and books. There is clearly unrest and trouble brewing and even though Hybern has been dealt with, it doesn’t mean the problems just poofed away. I can’t wait to see how it all plays out. And that sneak peek at the end has me excited. Although I probably shouldn’t have read it cause the next book is so far. Arghhh.

All in all, A Court Of Frost And Starlight was a wonderful read and I easily devoured it in one sitting. I’m forever in love with this world and I’m so glad there is more to come.

  1. I didn't realize this was a novella at first when I saw it around initially! I thought it was a full sized release. Cool title though, and this series does seem to get a lot of love!

  2. I agree that ACOFAS being everything I wanted as well! I was actually wary of too much being shoved in one book, but I loved all those moments with the Night Court! I need Vassa's story!
