I’m going to preface this by saying that I am a huge fan of Sarah J. Maas. Her writing is great. Her stories are intriguing and filled with adventure and danger and secrets and magic and friendship and love. They’re highly entertaining, emotional, and grapple with big ideas. Are they without flaw? No. But I never thought I’d give a piece of her writing less than four stars.But here we are.I really wanted to love Frost & Starlight with the same boundless vigor that I give the original trilogy. But I just…didn’t. To be honest, I’m weirded out. This is new territory for me.A Court of Frost and Starlight is a novella, clocking in at 229 pages, with a 20 page sneak peek at the next full-length book of the Court series, which has no set publication date at this time. From the beginning, it has been marketed as a bridge between the original trilogy and the spinoff series. Set in the Night Court over the Winter Solstice, it is, according to the jacket copy, a “tale of hope and promise” crammed with character development that will have a “far-reaching impact on the future of [the] court.”I’m aware of this. I know there’s only so much a writer can accomplish in 229 pages. I did not expect anything on the same level of her full-length novels. Part of me likes the domestic fanfiction-y vibe a majority of the book embraces. Emotionally-driven characters have been a staple and a strength of this series from the beginning. It’s not a bad read.It’s just not…a necessary read.Are there important plot elements introduced that lay groundwork for the spinoff series? Sure!Did they require an entire novella to set them up? Nope!I think my reaction is so lackluster because, to me, there wasn’t anything major to react to. The most exciting part was the 20 page sneak peek, which made me shriek and hug things and wonder when the first spinoff novel would actually come out, because I want that book. That book is going to shake me up.But honestly? I was happy with where A Court of Wings & Ruin left everyone. I don’t think I needed Frost & Starlight to hold my hand and lead me towards the next trilogy.Honestly, Frost & Starlight felt kind of like fan service. It gave us the highly anticipated wall scene (which my asexual ass skimmed through) but other than that?I acknowledge that there’s no way to properly judge the success and relevance of Frost & Starlight as a bridge between series until we have Spinoff #1 in our hands. But I have this feeling that, down the road when both Court trilogies are on my shelf, Frost & Starlight will join Crown of Midnight in the “books that I skip over during rereads” category.Now, I still respect Sarah J. Maas, madly and wildly. She’s a grown-ass writer who can make her own grown-ass choices about what she writes and what she chooses to publish. Am I mad that she published it? No. Am I judging other fans who really loved it? Hell no! It’s not policy for me to shame anyone for liking what they like.But I would be doing myself and my brand a disservice by not reviewing honestly, so here we are.A Court of Frost & Starlight simmers with promises, but foreshadowed more than it actually delivered.
I would call spoiler alert, but really this is more like a list of non-spoilers. As in, here is a list (in no particular order) of subplots that are introduced in the second and third installments that are not resolved in this book. Lucien and Tamlin, still at odds. Lucien and Elain, still awkward. Elain and Azriel, no real advancement. Nesta and Cassian, further apart. Bryaxis, still at large. Nesta’s strangeness, about to be explored when Hybern’s Ravens attacked the library, unexplained and deepened. Mor, still alone and unfulfilled. Eris, whose character hinted previously as having some redemptive possibilities, untouched. Helion’s role as Lucien’s true father, also untouched. Treaty between Fae and human, unsettled. Jurian and Vassa, closer buddies now with Lucien, but again, no developments.No meat really in this book, and the reviews that mention its resemblance to fan fiction? Spot on. Lots of window dressing, like “here are all the pretty things we can buy with all our money and sumptuous gowns we can wear and seaside houses we can live in” … really like playing dolls with familiar characters.Hugely disappointed to have waited a year for this; I’d have much preferred waiting two years and gotten a fourth installment of substance. If this was to satisfy a publisher’s quota, they truly did Ms. Maas and her fans a disservice.Finally, to pay $9 for a book that’s a third of the length of its predecessors is just adding insult to injury.
Being a fan of both TOG and ACOTAR, I was excited and looking forward to another great read. Sadly, I was deeply disappointed with this book. I understand wanting to bridge the new series (one I will definitely be reading), but this book felt pointless. Upon finishing the book, I felt like I had just read the most lengthy and long-winded prologue ever. I’m sorry, but even as a SJ fan I’d have to say skip this book and wait until the new series 🙁
I was so disappointed by this 4th installment of the quite enjoyable Court of Thorns and Roses saga. The whole book was nothing but the filler you’d expect to find between the action and suspense. We all know how Rhys and Feyre feel about each other, Nesta’s whining, Elian’s fragile innocence, Cassians brooding over Nesta, Lucien’s, well…I don’t know what’s up with Lucien, Etc, etc, etc. This book was thoroughly a waste of time and money.
I love Maas and avidly devoure her writing. This is my favorite series and is near to my heart. But, This book and its lackluster storyline (if you want to call it as such) makes me wonder.I’ve never imagined giving any of Maas’ books under 4 stars. I genuinely feel like this was a feel good money grab. I’m not sure if that’s really all it was, because calling it a novella feels like a gross overstatement. Or, maybe Maas is simply being pressured to produce too much in too little time.Save yourself the money and find a copy of the 20 page preview for the next installment. I promise that’s worth sinking your teeth into.
An entertaining peek into the lives of characters we love. I’m a newcomer to this world, only discovering A Court of Thorns and Roses 2 months ago. Since then I’ve inhaled the original trilogy and devoured this novella in the last 24 hours. I thought I would be annoyed by multiple points of view (2 of them 1st person), however, it was thoroughly enjoyable and completely works as long as you remember what this novella/novelette is: a short story whose purpose is to lay the groundwork for some hopefully action-packed full-length novels to come. I feel like this also gave me some resolutions for Rhys and Feyre that the last book lacked (I won’t spoil them for you, but it was satisfying to see for those who felt like those 2 had some more work to do). All in all, I’m glad I bought it and look forward to rereading all 4 books again!
I love this series. I really do! That might explain my disappointment. This is essentially a Christmas short story about some of the healing to be done (or not). However nothing happens. All of the characters stagnate. Frankly it’s not believable that illiterate Freyre after 5 minutes teaching prior you a war can now conduct the written business of the land. The sex scenes have the problem of having to outdo themselves so they get sillier and sillier. The real story is with the broken: Nests, Tamlin, Elain, Lucien, Mor and even Cassian & As. As much as I love Rhys and Freyre, this novel confirms their story isn’t worth centre stage anymore. I was really disappointed but that this is due to the cracking standard in the previous books – especially the first two. The sneak peak at the next book is the really interesting bit! Having read Maas’ acknowledgements her father was seriously ill and she discovered she was pregnant so perhaps that’s why this book feels rushed out by her publishers (I’m on kindle but this seemed half the usual number of pages). I hope she returns to form with the next one as there’s no one better when she produces the standard of the first two ACOTAR books especially.
I have been a fan of every book in this series so far and I was super excited to start the next one. I didn’t realise that this was a small filler book or that it would add no value at all to the main story. This is essentially a short Christmas story with all the main characters just after the war. We see them all healing (or not healing) and trying to get on with their lives but nothing actually happens. This book adds no value to the characters or storyline and isn’t even interesting to read. If anything, it has made me feel less about the series.I honestly think it would have been better to have skipped this one. I just hope that we get back on track with the next one in the series.
Read the first 2 books and loved them so couldn’t wait for the 3rd but it became more and more about sex rather than the big battle at the end but I forgave it since I lived the first two so much.Read this book “frost and starlight” with every intention to enjoy it l, even reading during the week if the winter solstice to get right into it. Got to chapter two and all Rhys talks about is sex and how he loves different sexual positions and how they can fly and have sex at the same time. Utter smut now trying to show sex as love, just sounds like a run up to a bad porno.Not impressed. Advertised as “the scars of the past will touch her court in times to come.” when it should be “Rhys will touch and constantly talk about touching her in times to come.”
A Court of Frost and Starlight is a companion novel to the A Court of Thorns and Roses series and I love it! Freya is getting ready for her first Winter Solstice as High Lady and she is learning much about herself during this time, as well as her courts traditions. We are on the journey with the Night Court’s Inner Circle as they look for gifts for each other for Solstice and they make peace with what they experienced in the war against Hybern.This book broke my heart – Mor still battling the memories of the assault on her, Cassian’s passion to train the women to fight back against males who attempt to hurt them like they had his mother, Nesta still feeling nothing after having been Made against her will, Freya finding her love of painting again and Tamlin… oh, as much as I hate Tamlin my heart is broken for him – he has lost everything as a result of his actions and is not the High Fae we once knew. With Rhys showing a gesture to help him, it just broke me. As I’ve said before, I am completely in love with this series, in love with these characters and feel like my soul has died now that I’ve read the four released novels and now I need to patiently wait for A Court of Silver Flames. I cannot wait to get my hands on it and I’ll be lost when it eventually ends.To the stars that listen and the dreams that are answered…
This is essentially a short story for serious fans of the COTAR trilogy, letting us spend more time with these characters and locations. It rams Rhys and F’s happiness down our throats, so we are left in no doubt that they are happy with dreams fulfilled. I found some of the events between them a bit ridiculous, especially as the more understated nature of their lifestyle was part of its initial appeal (compared to other highly materialistic High Courts). Putting the materialism aside, I also thought that the big sex scene of this book was so overdone, as Rhys’ POV narration states that their souls only *fully* belong to one another after it. So we leave Rhys and F behind, their happy ending completely closed off with no loose threads. The two most interesting characters in this book are Cassian and Nesta, so no surprise when it is revealed that the next full length novel set in this world will be about them. Azriel hovers on the edges, but the Lucien/ Elaine/ Azriel/ Mor dynamic isn’t as interesting as the Cassian/ Nesta one. Looking forward to the new chapter and hope to see more of Velaris and the other members of the Court of Dreams.Overall not as watertight or intelligent as the trilogy, but a light read to keep readers engaged before the next novel comes out.
