A Court of Frost and Starlight is a short little book added to the popular Court of Thorns and Roses series by Sarah J. Maas. This book is adorable, yes I said it adorable! I personally find this book to be a perfect little day read that can hold readers over until the next big book in the series drops. So let’s jump into the summary, without spoilers of course 🙂
The gang is all here! Feyre, Rhysand, Morrigan, Elain, Amren, Cassian, Azriel, and yes, even Nesta are all getting ready to celebrate the Winter Solstice. This is their first real holiday as a family, battle worn, healing, and scarred, but a family none the less. What do they do in the Night Court for this celebration? What faerie magic will they witness? And the most pressing question, what is everyone getting for presents?! Well read the book if you want to find out!
This book threw me… figuratively… It would be a little worrisome if a hard-backed book could do anything really.
Firstly this book is a mere 324 pages… compared to the monsters of the series clocking in at 600+ & 900+ pages! So yes, it’s easy to get through in one sitting… which makes me sad because less pages equals less time reading about my favourite characters!
Besides the length I don’t dislike anything about this book. Honestly! The characters are back to their sassy and glorious selves. The scenery in the book is decadent and described as perfectly as ever. And there are some truly tender moments that definitely had some tears spilled over them.
I cannot fault this book for anything except cutting me short of a few hundred pages of my favourites, but that’s okay. The little excerpt in the back for her next book has me hyped and ready for more!
I’m giving A Court of Frost and Starlight a glorious 10/10 beautiful gowns. I enjoyed this book so much! It reminded me of the holiday specials thrown by the shows on television in the best way possible. It was like seeing the characters for who they are when the threat of war isn’t looming over their heads. It was so comforting and really drew me in to the whole scene. It might’ve even awoken a craving for some hot chocolate and peppermint bark too…
