“A Court of Frost and Starlight” (ACOTAR #3.1) – Book Review | Disappointed but Cassian has my heart
There was so much anticipation around this one that I felt like it was pushing itself towards disappointment! There are very few novellas that really pull the story forward. What I have seen is that they usually help in better understanding of the characters by giving a glimpse of the characters doing stuff they wouldn’t spend much time on in the the main books.
ACOFAS was no different. It gave us a better view of the characters when not under direct threat. God I had missed Cassian and Azriel! While all that was okay, this was more like an endless shopping trip and painting spree. Seriously, I could have done with atleast 100 pages less of that repetition. While it was nice to see them relaxing for a while, it was too much repetition. However, this book calls for some serious cover love! 😀
I would have thought this was a waste of time if not for the Cassian scenes.. they were amazing. There is something about Cassian that wrenches my heart and punches me right in the gut. Going by the feel of A Court of Frost and Starlight, next books are going to have heavy focus on Cass and that makes me happy beyond measure.
Two more things to be mentioned are that SJM really needs to stop with the cringy innuendos as there are a lot of scenes not suitable for 15-16 year olds and this book still passes as Young Adult, which are better classified New Adult.
I don’t rate this book very highly, but I am definitely waiting eagerly for the next book.. 🙂
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 far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.
