A Court of Frost and Starlight

AUTHOR: SARAH J MASS • SERIES: ACOTAR (Book 3.1) • GENRE: YA FANTASY • PAGES: 229

NOTE- I requested a review copy of A Court of Frost and Starlight from the amazing people at Bloomsbury Publishing Australia in exchange for my honest review. If you wish to see my review policy you can find it here.


Synopsis

Feyre, Rhys and their companions 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.

My Review

I think novellas might just simply annoy me. Whilst the writing style was still as brilliant as all of the other books in the series, it just lacked substance. That might sound harsh considering it is a novella, but I honestly didn’t see the point of this book. It really doesn’t bring anything new to the table.

The majority of the story talks about painting and buying presents. Both topics I am OK with, but the painting aspects just were drawn so far out. I really just wanted more of a story, rather than a glimpse into a few weeks of their lives.

I am however, still looking forward to the next book because I want to know what happens to Nesta and Cassian. I think Sarah J Mass know this and probably could sell anything ACOTAR to us at this point.

Oh and before I go of course there is the obligatory sex scene (not sure how these are YA) and if brings a whole new meaning to someone screwing with your mind… 🙄 😉

Overall Rating:  3/5 teacups

    Agreed; you review perfectly encapsulates this book. I’m waiting for the next one, which is obviously the intention, but I wasn’t happy that this is because the book skirted past ALL my questions. The minutae of accounts, paperwork and art could definitely be shortened!
