I have made no secrets here or anywhere else that I love A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. This latest installment, A Court of Frost and Starlight, is no exception. While it may not be action-packed, this story shows us the aftermath of the war that shook the continent of Prythian. It also shows us what our favorite characters are up to now that there is no war to worry about.
The Court of Dreams is doing its part to alleviate any trouble that the Night Court is going through after Hybern’s attack. Feyre uses her talents to help others paint their demons away. Cassian tries to help females in the Illyrian war camps maintain some sort of equality. Morrigan faces her troubled past, father, and her former intended. Somehow, through all of this, Rhysand is still trying to pull all of his family together to enjoy the Solstice together.
This novella also sets up the Maas’ next novel in this universe, focusing on Cassian and Nesta, a fan favorite ship to be sure. The teaser allows us to see that Nesta will most likely be trained as an Illyrian warrior by Cassian, something that has been hinted at a number of times throughout the series.
This novella leans heavily on the emotional attachment that readers have with these characters and insists that the reader has read A Court of Thorns and Roses and its sequels. Of course, if you haven’t read these books, you should immediately drop what you are doing and run to your local book store or library and pick them up. There is much more to come in the courts of Prythian!
