Feyre, Rhy sand, and their companions are still hard at work rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly altered world beyond in the aftermath of the conflict. But the Winter Solstice is approaching, bringing with it the pleasure of a well-deserved reprieve.
However, even the festive atmosphere cannot prevent the past from approaching. Feyre is more worried than ever about her closest friends as she approaches her first Winter Solstice as High Lady. They have more injuries than she anticipated, which will have far-reaching consequences for the future of their court.
A Court of Frost and Starlight connects the events of A Court of Wings and Ruin to later novels in the series by analysing the far-reaching effects of a devastating war and the ferocious love between friends.

A Court of Frost and Starlight Book Summary
I can’t recall the last time I penned a full review, but since this is ACOFAS and the book deserves one, shall we begin? I would like to point out that this review is all over the place, but I got the majority of my points across, so yeah.
In this book, my desires have been fulfilled: I have access to Cassian’s point of view. If you know me well, you know how much I admire Cassian, so when I learned he would have his own point of view chapters, I legitimately freaked out. Obviously, I will devote an entire section of this review to my ray of light because he deserves it.
I will begin by discussing the book in general. Frankly, it felt like a diversion but I enjoyed it for the most part. I believe it was intended to function as a bridge between the first and second trilogies, as SJM wanted to do. But it made me question whether it was necessary. This series holds a special place in my heart, and most significantly, it gave me more Cassian (if you read my pre-reviews, you can see how much I was looking forward to more Cassian and Nessian). But now that I know that book four will be about Cassian (queue panic), I wish we hadn’t received a novella, because I would have purchased Cassian’s book immediately. I cannot believe it will be another year before I can read about my sunlight.
Therefore, I would not say that anything of note occurred in this novella. The majority of people were affected by the aftermath of ACOWAR. There are quite a few themes present, including loss, mourning, depression, alcoholism, and post-traumatic stress disorder, and I foresee this series returning to dark territory. But SJM has done so previously. She did it in ACOMAF and HOF, and I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: no one writes damaged characters, self-love, and healing better than SJM. In this novella, SJM demonstrates once again how dire mental illness can become. This is the truth, my comrades. Here, SJM demonstrates that mental illness is unsightly and taxing on the individual, his or her family, peers, and community. I am looking forward to seeing how she approaches this in book 4, and I have faith that she will do an excellent job.
I adore Feysand, but I feel like I got everything I needed from them, get it? This is a second reason why I believed the novella was superfluous. The first trilogy was centred on them, which was sufficient for me. I am eager to enter the perspectives of the other characters. I mean, there are points of view from Cassian (my beloved), Mor, and a minor amount from Nesta. And I would have liked Az, Elain, and Lucien’s points of view as well, but oh well, they’ll undoubtedly get their own books. Back to Feysand, there were extremely adorable moments for these two, but there was also one tiny moment where I was like “… no”, but overall, they were adorable, domestic, and in love. As previously stated, I am eager to meet the other characters, especially Cassian.
However, this novel was not entirely depressing; there were numerous adorable moments involving the other characters. The snowball custom? OH MY HEART. These Illyrian infants are my existence. And what about the sauna? Very amusing.
