A companion tale to Sarah J. Maas's #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series that takes place several months after the explosive events of A Court of Wings and Ruin
Narrated by Feyre and Rhysand, this story bridges the events in A Court of Wings and Ruin and the upcoming novels in the series.
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.
This was not what I expected from the next instalment of this series but looking back it makes sense. The last book was quite action packed and intense and this is a slow down and recover type book for the characters. Still good. My only disappointment was that it wasn't longer as I read it in one sitting
Another great addition to a fantastic series
Completely bedazzled with this series and the world MAAS has created.
A very good read.
I reread this series again and again. Very engaging.
The book had me from the first page. I really enjoyed it

I absolutely love this series by Maas and one of the main reasons is for the characters. I know some people will be disappointed with this book as they were hoping for move 'movement' in the series and it is really justa capturing a couple of months in the lives of the main characters. I still loved it, however, as it gives you more of an insight into their daily lives and interactions and sets the scene for a budding romance or two...
Well Wirth the money!
Absolutely love this book - I didn't realise our queen would be releasing this so soon after A Court of Wings and Ruin, and as soon as I learned that she was I headed straight online to pre-order it. Definitely my retreat from university work and the perfect read for the end of a busy day when you just want to switch off and enter a new magical world :)
Best series ever!
This book is amazing!
I would buy this product again
I read everyday and it's a book I cannot put down
Not worth the price
This was like a really long version of "what happened last time". You know how a book series might have a page dedicated to what happened in the last book (which is super considerate). This was an elongated version of that. Should be an online PDF for free, not printed out considering how tiny and lacklustre it was.
We learnt nothing new about any of the characters. Oh, Amren likes gems and doesn't drink blood anymore. Oh, Cassian is still moping around about Nesta. And Azriel is just confused about life generally.
Nesta was fun to read this book, and the only reason this book is rated two stars. Having an insight into her obviously severe depression was interesting - even though the entire time Feyre is hailed as a saint and that Nesta should be kissing her feet. And because she's obviously suffering from PTSD and can't be around other people much, that means she's not a 'team player' and should be shunned from the family.
BEHEADED. Yet the credit goes to Elain who touches flowers and I think has become an alcoholic.
You can't complain that someone has a poor attitude when you're literally refusing to be nice to her and constantly want to remind them of their shortcomings. I wouldn't want to hang out with Feyre and her lot after this book either. If you're going to make a 'good' group of people, make sure they're not actually being bullies first.
very good set up for next series
it's a good set up for the spin-off series, and does clear some unanswered questions and most ideas from ACOWAR
A Court of Frost and Starlight
Thrilling * Hello * Sexual tension and deadly action are well supported by Maas's expertly drawn, multidimensional characters and their nuanced interpersonal dynamics * Kirkus Reviews * A gorgeously written tale as lush and romantic as it is ferocious. It's impossible not to be caught in Feyre's snare as her tremendous will and heart lead her on a journey through glimmering lands and into a terrifying, dark court of nightmares. Absolutely spellbinding * New York Times bestselling author Alexandra Bracken * Sarah J. Maas is a master storyteller. Her writing is exquisite; her characters complex, flawed and endlessly relatable and worlds all-consuming * So Many Books, So Little Time * This is a world of strong female warriors. But they retain just enough human vulnerability to warm our hearts * Jewish Chronicle *
