Book Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3.1) – Sarah J. Maas (no spoilers, I promise)
Title: A court of Frost and Starlight Author: Sarah J. Maas Publisher: Bloomsbury Release date: May 1st 2018 Genre: YA Fantasy
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.

Here we are now, I waited patiently (read: stalking Sarah J. Maas’s social media 3 times a day) for this book to come out and then even more slowly read this amazing book (read: I woke up at 5 am to start reading this book and finished it in no time).
To be completely honest, I loved this novella so much.
I forgot the feeling this series gave me when I read them the first time. This series always gives me an amazing feeling, like I suddenly look at in life everything differently. This book gave me those feelings all over again. The story was so much more than just a novella featuring Feyre and Rhys’s romance. Sarah J. Maas really took her time to explain the damage the war did to all our favourite characters and the world they live in.
The book was narrated by many different characters. It was quite fun to get to know some of those characters a bit more. But, for me the chapters narrated by Feyre were still the best. Rhysand is often a bit too melodramatic for me to enjoy being inside his head. I like his character a lot, but he isn’t the best narrator for me. Feyre was such an amazing character in this book. She is such a darling and although she went through a lot she still acts like a champ.
