Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3.1) by Sarah J. Maas (NA)

A Court of Thorns and Roses #3.1
by Sarah J. Maas
Release date: May 1st, 2018
Published by: Bloomsbury YA
Genre: New Adult Fantasy
Format: Hardcover, eBook, Audiobook
Format read: Hardcover book I purchased.


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 a far-reaching impact on the future of their Court. 


This book is for the die-hard fan of the series and author! Don't go into this thinking that you're going to get more info or see anything new or exciting, this was just what the author had intended it to be - a leeway into the next trilogy of the series, a little bridge, to give us a peek of what the characters are up to and what is to come.

I really, really enjoyed this book, and here's why:
It's a novella! Just a tiny glimpse at what all the characters are doing after the war - how they are coping and taking care of everyday little things making them really relatable and likable. I really appreciated this! It showed me that they don't all have to be so intense and broody all the time. It's okay to slow-down, be mellow and just live. 
For me, Feyre and Rhys' story is complete! But I do love seeing them together and how they're coping with the aftermath of everything that they had gone through in such a short period of time. Seeing them heal and have hope for the future warmed my heart... 
Seeing the others in the group tease each other and get back to their old ways was endearing. They're all getting used to the peace that they currently have and are starting to let their guard down and enjoy the moment. Yes, there are still pressing matters to attend to, but for the winter holiday, they are relaxing and taking the time to appreciate each other's company.

Authentically fun and satisfying! 

And on that note - I truly am super excited to see what is going to happen next as I feel it's time to let the other characters shine and tell their stories now!


Sarah J. Maas is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the THRONE OF GLASS series, as well as the A COURT OF THORNS AND ROSES series.

Sarah lives in Bucks County, PA, and over the years, she has developed an unhealthy appreciation for Disney movies and bad pop music. She adores fairy tales and ballet, drinks too much tea, and watches an ungodly amount of TV. 

When she's not busy writing, she can be found exploring the historic and beautiful Pennsylvania countryside with her husband and canine companion.
