A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas. (2018).
(A Court of Thorns and Roses; #3.1)
**3.5 out of 5 stars**
Feyre’s first Winter Solstice as High Lady is drawing near. With it will come a hard-earned rest from the work she, Rhys, and their friends have done to rebuild the Night Court and the vastly changed world beyond. Yet the festive atmosphere can’t keep shadows from looming. Even as her own heart heals, she finds that those dearest to her have wounds that go deeper than she knew. And the scars of the past will touch her court in times to come…
Okay so I’m not sure I really understand the hate and negativity around this one in the series. Yes, it’s short; it’s a novella, they are meant to be short… so obviously if you are expecting a lot to happen, or for many details on everything, you are doing to be disappointed. My understanding of this particular novella is that it’s a bridge between novels; it follows on from the very ending of book 3 (A Court of Wings and Ruin). While I liked that there were a few different character perspectives included, there was definitely a couple of main characters not included and I thought that was a bit disappointing.
Overall: I didn’t mind this little novella at all, but I am speaking from the perspective of having the next book ready on my bookshelf so I can appreciate that it would have been frustrating for those who waited another 3 years for book 4.
