I debated whether I should post a review of A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas. There’s really not a whole lot to review.
So this is going to be short.
Like really short.
I didn’t want to read A Court of Frost and Starlight. In fact, I bought it 2 years ago and am just now reading it since the release of A Court of Silver Flames looms upon us.
A Court of Frost and Starlight Review
I knew it was fluff. I’d been told by everyone and their mother that there was no plot.
And they were right.
But that doesn’t mean it was bad. I actually kind of liked it.
Was it hard to read? Yeah, kind of.
I mean, when there’s no plot to drive you forward, there’s very little reason to turn the page. After about 40% of the way through I did start looking forward to the inevitable confrontation between Feyre and Nesta.
But unfortunately that didn’t end the way I’d hoped. But let’s get real, how could it have? There needs to be some character development for A Court of Silver Flames.
A Court of Frost and Starlight was a nice book to read during the Christmas holiday as the entire story takes place on the Winter Solstice.
Since they’re in the Night Court, and the winter solstice is the longest night of the year, they celebrate it like Christmas. Of course they don’t have Christmas in fictional worlds without Christ, so that’s what A Court of Frost and Starlight was: A Christmas story.
I didn’t plan that. It just sort of happened. And it made it a little more special to read this year.
Would I read it again? Absolutely not.
But was it enjoyable in the moment? Sure. Now I can’t wait to get my hands on A Court of Silver Flames.
