(From Goodreads) The Winter Solstice. In a week. I was still new enough to being High Lady that I had no idea what my formal role was to be. If we’d have a High Priestess do some odious ceremony, as lanthe had done the year before. A year. Gods, nearly a year since Rhys had called in his bargain, desperate to get me away from the poison of the Spring Court to save me from my despair. Had he been only a minute later, the Mother knew what would have happened. Where I’d now be. Snow swirled and eddied in the garden, catching in the brown fibers of the burlap covering the shrubs My mate who had worked so hard and so selflessly, all without hope that I would ever be with him We had both fought for that love, bled for it. Rhys had died for it.

Bookish Stats

I read A Court of Frost and Starlight in one day. I couldn’t put it down! I was so excited to jump back into the world of Feyre and Rhysand.

Review | 5 Reasons Why You Should Read ACOFAS

I understand that not everyone is thrilled with the A Court of Frost and Starlight novella. The storyline is somewhat loose—instead of a gallivanting adventure, the characters are mostly just living their lives. The book is “unnecessary,” according to some people. I get that—I do—but I still loved it. So instead of doing a traditional review, I’m going to give you 5 reasons why you should read A Court of Frost and Starlight:

  1. You get to immerse yourself back into the world of ACOTAR. I have some serious love for the characters in this series, so I was thrilled to be able to jump back into their world. From Feyre to the swoon-worthy Rhysand, my brain constantly says “More! More! More!” and this book delivered.
  2. Nesta and Cassian. If you’re like me, you’ve been wondering what’s going to happen with Nesta and Cassian. While this book doesn’t dive too deep into their relationship, it does provide an epic cliffhanger that’s scream-worthy.
  3. You get to see what the characters are like when they’re not at war or saving each other’s lives. As the characters prepare for Winter Solstice, the mood is light-hearted and fun. So much of the ACOTAR series has been intense–one battle or pivotal moment after the next–so it was nice to take a step back to see what the characters are like during their down time.
  4. You can read it in one sitting. Personally, I love a good short read on occasion. I like being able to sit down and read an entire book in a couple short hours.
  5. If you’re a fan of the ACOTAR series, this book is a must read. This book is a bridge book to the next book in the series, so I highly recommend that you read this book before book four hits the shelves (not soon enough!)

  1. I agree with you!!
    The book delivered what was promised: a hook between the ACOTAR series and what’s to come on the next part of the adventure.
    I loved it so much!!! It made me realize how much I missed Feyre, Rhys and the inner circle.
    It also made me dislike Nesta a little less… which is something!


      1. Exactly what got me thinking… she doesn’t have her powers anymore, at least it appears so…
        But I guess Maas will give her an important role 🙂
