Stars flickered around us, sweet darkness sweeping in. As if we were the only souls in a galaxy
I loved the A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy. But I felt Feyre’s story was done and that there was nothing more I wanted to know about her life. This novella was exactly what I expected and didn’t care too much for.

Series: A Court of Thorns and Roses
The Winter Solstice. In a week. I was still new enough to being High Lady that I had no idea what my formal role was to be. If we’d have a High Priestess do some odious ceremony, as lanthe had done the year before. A year. Gods, nearly a year since Rhys had called in his bargain, desperate to get me away from the poison of the Spring Court to save me from my despair. Had he been only a minute later, the Mother knew what would have happened. Where I’d now be. Snow swirled and eddied in the garden, catching in the brown fibers of the burlap covering the shrubs My mate who had worked so hard and so selflessly, all without hope that I would ever be with him We had both fought for that love, bled for it. Rhys had died for it.
I give A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas three out of five hearts because I think the writing was okay, but I didn’t care.
The story is about the Winter Solstice, the first one of Feyre and Rhysand together and the peace and quiet has return to the world. Feyre, Morrigan, Rhysand and their friends are happy together. Feyre’s sisters as still adapting to their new circumstances, they have been changed and don’t know how to deal with everything yet.
But to be honest, I don’t care for reading about people celebrating Christmas. Because that is what Winter Solstice is. I really don’t care about such a simple thing. If it is part of a story, it’s fine. But only this event is to me no fun.
I think the plot is fine, there is some character development especially since the characters have their own memories to deal with about the event.
The novella is nice and short so it is not that much of an issue to read it even though I didn’t care. There are some funny things in there, like a snowball war and if you don’t mind reading about mundane things and A Court of Thorns and Roses, this is your read. Not for me however.
