From Goodreads:
Months after the explosive events in A Court of Wings and Ruin, Feyre, Rhys, and their companions are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve. Yet even the festive atmosphere can't keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated--scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.

"I love you. More than life, more than my territory, more than my crown." 

A Court of Frost and Starlight was a book that I have been dying to get my hands on and when it got delivered to my house early by a few days (EEP), I couldn't help but dive right in. I loved A Court of Frost and Starlight so much. It was, in my opinion, totally perfect. A Court of Frost and Starlight was a lot shorter than the previous books, with it being a novella, and honestly there is less action in this than the previous novels in this series. Some will probably complain about this and say that it was a let down but I went into this book completely expecting there to be less action.

A Court of Frost and Starlight is definitely a bridging novella, as I was expecting it to be. It gives us a little taste of what Rhysand and Feyre are up to after the end of A Court of Wings and Ruin. I loved seeing what happened to them and how they were dealing with the after effects of ACOWAR as I felt like ACOWAR could have gone on for longer and explored the after effects of the war a little bit more. I also loved how this was an introduction to the new novels with new narrators. I loved catching up with all the characters that I came to love and I loved seeing the dynamics between Cassian and Nesta. This was definitely a book that was more about the relationships between the characters and setting the scene for the next book.

A Court of Frost and Starlight was a lovely novella to bridge the gap between the old trilogy and the new one. I am super excited to see this series continue with other characters being the narrators. It was way shorter than I would have liked. Even with it just being more about the relationships between the characters rather than the world and the action I would have been totally fine with that and experiencing more along with these characters that I love. I cannot wait for the next book in this series. It cannot get here fast enough.

"What you two have, Rhys... it's the legends, the lies, they spin us when we're children. About the glory and wonder of the mating bond. I thought it was all bullshit. Then you two came along."
