Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Frost and StarlightSynopsis:

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

Feyre, Rhys and their companions 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.

Favorite Lines:

“I think my heart knew you were mine long before I ever realized it.”

“Stars flickered around us, sweet darkness sweeping in. As if we were the only souls in a galaxy.”

My Opinion:

I was beyond excited to read this book because it is my favorite series. I reread all of the series in preparation for this book to come out. I have to say that I was slightly disappointed with this book. Not because it wasn’t great, but because I wanted more. This book is just a halfway point between A Court of Wings and Ruin and the spin-off novels to come.

What I liked about this book is that it shows different points of view from all of our favorite characters (especially Rhys’s PoV) and how everyone is adjusting to life after the war is over. I was very happy to get more of Feyre and Rhys because they are the OTP of all OTPs. The book also set up so many more opportunities for the future involving different characters and couples throughout the series. I am excited to see where Maas takes it and can’t wait for the next book to come out.

This book hints at what characters we might see in the new spin-off books for the series. I think I am most looking forward to Nesta and Cassian but I think I would be happy to see any addition to this world Maas has created!


Overall, as I said above, this book provided us with more of Rhys and Ferye. If you’re anything like me, you’ll take what you can get. Now it’s time to reread the series like a million more times while we wait for the next book in the series to come out.

Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Wings and RuinSynopsis:

Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit – and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords – and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all

Favorite Lines:

“It’s a rare person to face who they are and not run from it—not be broken by it.”

“What we think to be our greatest weakness can sometimes be our biggest strength.”

“Kindness can thrive even amongst cruelty.”

“I would have waited five hundred more years for you. A thousand years. And if this was all the time we were allowed to have…the wait was worth it.”

My Opinion:

I will start by saying that this is technically the last book in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series. There is a novella coming out as well as some-sort of spin-off to come in the future.

A Court of Wings and Ruin follows Feyre and Rhys as they navigate their lives and prepare for the impending war that is going to change the future for both humans and fae alike. I am still 100% bias for this series because it is my favorite series to date so I am going to keep this review pretty short and sweet. If you have made it this far in the series than you will understand why this book is a must read. It is the conclusion to the series and has so much to cover to wrap up the story that Maas has laid out for us.

That being said, I don’t like how many events had to be covered in this last book. It was almost like Maas had all these ideas and wanted to express them but was limited to this last book to cover them. I feel like some the events that took place towards the end of the story could have been expanded upon and drawn out longer (you will see what I mean when you read it). I hope that Maas is able to expand upon a lot of what happened in her next book and spin-off series.


Overall, I love this series and this is my fifth time reading it. What I love so much about Maas is that she is able to paint such a detailed and extensive picture of the worlds she creates. No matter how many times I read her books, there is always some detail that I pick up on that I see later on in the series or can reflect back on from a previous book. Maas is excellent at connecting all her stories together and weaving story lines together. I can’t wait to see what she does next.
