Winter Solstice is upon the Night Court. Construction is underway to rebuild, and the people are beginning to heal. It will be a long road to keep the thread of peace that has settled between the fey and humans. But the holiday brings a needed reprieve from the work and political navigation that the characters have endured.
As a companion novel, readers should not expect A Court of Frost and Starlight to be as involved as prior books. The tone Sarah J. Maas sets is tied into a build-up book for the future of the series. Each character readers have come to know in the circle of friends receives at least one chapter. Of course, Feyre and Rhysand earn the most chapters, but by the end of the novel, readers will know how everyone is dealing with the after-effects of the war.
A Court of Frost and Starlight was more of a feel good read. Being able to revisit a world that I’ve come to enjoy, and experience more of the culture that holds it together. Sure there was a bit of romance. But given that it involves Feyre and Rhys there will be. This book did spark more of an interest for me in Nesta. It teases what goes on in her mind, and how she is coping with being fey, and what she experienced in the war. I certainly want to read the next book in the series and find out if her icy demeanor ever melts.
While I think this isn’t a necessary story to read in the series, it will certainly help paint the picture for A Court of Silver Flames. Just be prepared for a lighter read.
