A Court of Frost and Starlight: A Court of Thorns and Roses (Book 3.1)
by Sarah J. Maas
“On the darkest night, the stars still shine.
Feyre’s first Winter Solstice as High Lady is drawing near. With it will come a hard-earned rest from hte 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 go deeper than she knew.
And the scars of the past will touch her court in times to come.”
After the war Prythian is reeling; some courts want to take over the human world, all of them are healing from the trauma, Velaris is rebuilding, peace is tenuous. Feyre and Rhys spend very little time together with each other or their court, but Solstice means that they have time to relax together.
That was 229 pages of fabulousness, I loved getting to see more of Feyre, Rhys and the Court of Dreams. I have seen some people complaining about this book, but it has always been there as a filler and cross-over book for the next trilogy. Also, the sneak-peek at the end! Oh my!
My favourite characters have to be Feyre, Rhysand, Cassian, Azriel, Mor, Amren and Elain. Nesta has gone down in my estimations, I know her coping mechanism is different but she is causing her sisters pain. I am also glad that we got more than just Feyre’s point of view, although I will be sad to not have anymore from Rhys’ or Feyre’s point of view.
My favourite part has to be a lot of it, but especially that wall scene *swoons*. I really enjoyed seeing Feyre getting back to painting and giving to the community.
A Court of Frost and Starlight does end on a cliffhanger, this is because the series continues with the next one due out in 2019.
While reading this book, I described it as a family healing themselves and their country from war, but also spending time together for the holidays. I would recommend it to adults and older teenagers due to mature content. 5 out of 5.
