A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas - The Contented ReaderHope warms the coldest night.

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.


Sarah J. Maas did it again! She successfully made my heart warm, my lips smile and my excitement grow for the coming books all with a novella.

A Court of Frost and Starlight is a novella that bridges the first three books with the coming books in the series.I’m happy to say that this novella did not disappoint me! This book is the definition of reuniting with wonderful friends and enjoying a new world. The writing in this book and the storyline is just magnificent.

While this is a short look back into the world, I’m pleased with this novella. The main thing I love about this book is that I got to sit back and watch the characters interact with one another without war or chaotic scheming. I love the action packed adventures in the other books. However, it is really refreshing to see these characters enjoy life and celebrate, especially after the events of the last book.

Another thing I love is the different perspectives! There are so many wonderful characters in this series and I’m so happy to get their perspective and thoughts. Especially outside of their interactions with Feyre and Rhysand. I especially love the perspective of Cassian!! I really enjoyed Nesta as well!

There are so many scenes in this book that make my heart happy. It’s such a nice break from scheming, fighting and war. I think it acts as a great bridge for the upcoming books. Yes, I agree there isn’t necessarily a “story” or “plot” to this book, which is what a lot of negative reviews comment on. But it’s refreshing to see these amazing characters in everyday moments and relaxing after the effects of war, sadness and emptiness.

Overall, I really love A Court of Frost and Starlight. It’s a relaxed storyline with dialogue between some of my favourite characters. One thing is for certain, Maas has be hooked and ready for the next books! I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us.

"To the stars who listen, Feyre." "To the dreams that are answered, Rhys."
