GENRE & SYNOPSIS

Hope warms the coldest night.

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.

RATING & REVIEW

★★★★0.5☆/5

I have been waiting for A Court of Frost and Starlight since I finished A Court of Wings and Ruin. I have participated this release for so long, I needed it to be amazing. And it was amazing. I really liked it. I have talked to a few people who have read A Court of Frost and Starlight and has remarked that it’s slow, nothing really happens and they didn’t really like it as much. To be honest, that was one of the reasons I loved this book.

The three previous books caused a lot to happen to the Circle, but also to the people outside it. Prythian needs rebuilding, and Velaris is broken. I loved how this book gave everyone’s pov, how it knitted together the experiences they all had in the previous books. How everyone was affected in different ways and how they after all of this needs to come together again to heal.

While reading the previous books I always felt sorry for Elain, but I liked Nesta. I could understand Nesta’s darkness, and how she lashed out on everyone because of what happened to her. In A Court of Frost and Starlight she becomes the shadow of what she once was. Rhys buries himself in work, Cassian takes on trying to fix the Illyrians, Mor tries to overcome her relationship with her father and, well, I don’t want to say his filthy name. Lucien tries to fit in somewhere, Elain tries to heal, and Feyre tries to bring everyone together and fix everything.

It is SO sad to let Rhys and Feyre go because I love them so much. Yes they can give you diabetes sometimes, and yes those sex-scenes are always kind of awkward, but I love them nonetheless. But the beginning of the next book. The sneak peak. That was not what I was expecting, and it was a twist I didn’t know I wanted until I read it. I can’t wait for the next book.
