Honestly, I went into this book with no expectations. I heard a lot of NOT SO GREAT things from some VERY trusted people, not to mention my own disappointment at A Court of Wings and Ruin and, well, I didn’t expect much but simply HAD to read it anyway because of my IMMENSE love for book two, A Court of Mist and Fury. (Which was really one of the BEST books ever and I am still not over it) A Court of Frost and Starlight started off rather… strangely. I’m quite used to this story having been told from Feyre’s point of view and it threw me when we ALSO got Rhysand, Mor, Nesta and Cassian narrating Sarah J Maas’ SMALLEST book to date. What I’m basically trying to say is, I had a little bit of an adjusting period. Let’s break it down: 1. If you know me, I’m not a huge fan of novellas or short stories. Whenever I read them, I always feel like the second I get invested, the story is over. POOF. HEART=BROKEN. And so use the word ‘novella,’ and I’m already a little suspicious about the book’s intentions for my heart. 2. EVEN THEN, Novella or full length novel, an essential element for books (for me) is PLOT. BOOKS HAVE TO HAVE A PLOT, OKAY? A Court of Frost and Starlight was a bridge book between the old series and the spin-off series, it didn’t really have a SOLID PLOT, or any real reason that the events of this book couldn’t have been clubbed into the next one VERY EASILY. 3. Really, this book was mostly (rather graphic) sex scenes, the “sizable” coffers of the Night Court, a lot of gift exchanging and some ominous foreshadowing for the next book. 4. MIND YOU, I’M NOT SAYING I DIDN’T LIKE IT, (There was a LOT I LIKED, and I’ll get to that below) BUT I WISH A Court of Frost and Starlight had been MORE by itself, or had just been combined into the NEXT BIG NOVEL. 5. There were a lot of things I really liked, including: - Feyre and Cassian’s drunk decorating (And Azriel trying to clean up their mess) Full review on A Thousand Words A Million Books
