Narrated by Feyre and Rhysand, this bridges the events in A Court of Wings and Ruin and the upcoming novels in the series.

New in the #1 New York Times bestselling Court of Thorns and Roses series, A Court of Frost and Starlight is a glimpse into the lives of Feyre and Rhys as they begin to recover from the war that changed their world.

Feyre, Rhysand, 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 a far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.

Can I first just start out with a little fan-girl and squee here, please? Because I absolutely adore Sarah J Maas’ A Court of Thorns and Roses series and had been heartbroken when I had thought Wing and Ruin was the end of this band of fun-loving, broken rebels.

Rhysand, Feyre, Azriel, Mor, Cassian, Amren and now Elain and Nesta, as well as the reluctant Lucien and Varian, have joined their ranks in Velaris. A Court of Frost and Starlight is just the short story for the fall and winter season as we can see Rhysand and Feyre after the war, making a life together as High Lord and Lady of the Night Court and rebuilding Velaris, in the winter snow. They are in chaos after the war, but keep tradition and celebrate the Winter Solstice. With all the destruction it helps remind them to be thankful for their lives, loves, friends, their city and its people and not to just wallow in pity and despair.

This really is just a fun, flirty story, which captures Feyre-darling broken once more and all the Mates-who-are-running-from-their-destinies--as I like to call them--are there being stubborn. Then throw in a few hints at the greater danger that will come in the next book of the series, as well as handing over the title of leading lady... I won’t get into too many details here but lets just say that it looks like the next part of this series will be a beautiful doozy, and you won’t want to miss it. Or this book as it actually sets up everything for what lies ahead.

If you’re a fan of this series pick up this book, you won’t regret it.
