I was so excited for the release of this book and yet somehow this review has been put off for so long. This probably happened because 1. I had a horrible withdrawal after ACOTAR and I couldn’t handle the separation (lol,right?) and 2. Because unfortunately I am good at procrastinating.
A Court of Frost and Starlight is a novella that is set right after the events from A Court of Wings and Ruin and explores in-depth the dynamic of the Inner Circle and how each of them deals with the horrible events of the war. In the book we are allowed a glimpse into domestic Feysand, we see the relationship between the Archeron sisters, how each of them deals with their father’s death and how Nesta and Elain deal with the fact that they are fae now. We see a very vulnerable side of Cassian, once he goes up to the Illyrian camps and if you have been following any fan-art bookstagrams, you have probably seen people freaking out about Elain and Azriel and how cute they are.
I am personally very happy with what we got from A Court of Frost and Starlight. As I’ve said before in my other reviews of the series, this whole universe gave me a sense of belonging and a sense of having a fictional family, and seeing them interact with each other and how each of them is unique in their own way and how they cope with loss and process the aftermath of a war is priceless.
Without giving anything else away (and I hope I didn’t give too much away), I will only say this – if you are wondering whether or not you should read A Court of Frost and Starlight, definitely go for it – it’s fluffy, it’s real and it will answer some questions that you might have in regards to the family that is the Inner Circle and the aftermath of Under the Mountain and the War.
A quote: “Stars flickered around us, sweet darkness sweeping in. As if we were the only souls in a galaxy.”
My rating: 5/5 stars
