A Court of Frost and Starlight (ACOFAS) picks up where the main series ended and this time readers are given access to the points-of-view of more of our beloved characters than just Feyre. This was such a great preparation tool leading up to the spin-off series (future release dates not yet known) and despite what some people have said, I do think this novella was necessary.
Book 3: A Court of Wings and Ruin (ACOWAR) ended so quickly that there were still things that needed to be hashed out after the war with Hybern. My biggest issue with this book is Nesta’s behaviour. I’ve never been a big fan of Nesta, finding her personality to be rude, hypocritical and petty. I understand a lot of people saying her behaviour is because of PTSD and the dramatic turn of events in her life and I empathize but honestly, she was acting the exact same way well before Book 1: A Court of Thorns and Roses (ACOTAR) when Feyre crossed the border and their story even began.
Regardless of my feelings towards Nesta, I love this series and have re-read it multiple times – it’s one of my go-to series when I’m in a book slump or simply want a comfort read. After reading this series, Prythian has become my answer to the classic question: “If you could live in any fictional world, where would you go?” Sorry Hogwarts, you’ve been replaced!
I’m very much looking forward to reading more from this series and seeing what new events lay ahead of my favourite friend circle. Hopefully further announcements will be made soon but in the meantime, I’m eagerly awaiting the released of Maas’ new adult series House of Earth and Blood (Crescent City #1)! Don’t forget to pre-order it now! HoEaB is due to be released 3 March 2020!
