A Court of Frost and Starlight ( A Court of Thorns and Roses #3.1 )

“To the blessed darkness from which we are born, and to which we return.” 

The Inner Circle still tries to recover from the events of the war with Hybern. There is still so much to do, so much to repair. But the longest night of the year approaches – The Winter Solstice. All they want now is to forget about the nightmares for even this one night. To enjoy this holiday with their loved ones.

I love Sarah’s writing style. It feels very easy, natural. I can’t really say anything more.

Every member of the Inner Circle is very dear to my heart. I really care about them. Reading about them interacting with each other was nothing but pure pleasure for me. Well… almost.

Because there’s Nesta. I have never, ever despised a character more than I do her. Every time she appeared in this book, or was even mentioned, made me so angry I felt physically sick. Am I overreacting? Maybe. But I still hate her.


The talk Feyre had with Rhys about trying for a baby made me even angrier. In ACOMAF they said that they wanted to wait. And I honestly believe that the only reason Feyre suddenly changed her mind, was because Sarah was pregnant and it was a shameless self insert.


Nothing happens in this book. Nothing. NOTHING. I love SJM. I love this series. And I feel awful for saying that, but this book was unnecessary.

I you love these characters, you are probably going to enjoy this novella. But while I was reading it, I couldn’t get rid of the feeling that I was just simply reading fanfiction. And not the best fanfiction.



You can find this book on Goodreads and Book Depository

  1. I was so looking forward to this book i preordered right when it came available. I was a tad disappointed mainly just because I love these characters so much and this is my favorite series. I though for sure we would see Feyre and Rhys deal with an unexpected pregnancy etc but we didn’t. I also didn’t like this book because of Nesta. She is a horrible character mainly because she’s a horrible person like damn girl. But, again I absolutely love the core characters and will probably (actually almost definitely read the rest of the books written). You’re review was spot on!

    1. I am really disappointed that the next trilogy is going to be about Nesta. There is so many different characters I would rather read about. And I actually dont know if I will be able to read this next trilogy. Nesta annoys me so much I can’t imagine this being a pleasant experience. I guess I will just be over here rereading ACOMAF over and over again 😂

          1. I understand that the events of ACOMAF and ACOWAR were really horrible for her and that she might suffer from ptsd. But she was acting like a bitch even before she was turned, soooo…

  2. I was lucky that I wasn’t disappointed – because my expectations were kinda low…

    I agree: this book just didn’t need to be written. It was kinda cute and fluffy but… this was just a slightly longer than usual epilogue. It wasn’t a book

      1. So I’ve heard. I was introduced to Sarah’s works through “A Court of Thorns and Roses” (cause Beauty and the Beast is my all-time favorite fairy tale), but my good friend swears by the awesomeness that is “Throne of Glass.”

        1. I fell in love with ACOTAR because of the characters, but ToG has a much better, more intricate plot. I hope you will like it!
          P.S. I read ACOTAR for the exact same reason as you 😄
