Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight

Title: A Court of Frost and Starlight

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Date of Publication: May 1st, 2018


Goodreads Summary:

The Winter Solstice. In a week. I was still new enough to being High Lady that I had no idea what my formal role was to be. If we’d have a High Priestess do some odious ceremony, as lanthe had done the year before. A year. Gods, nearly a year since Rhys had called in his bargain, desperate to get me away from the poison of the Spring Court to save me from my despair. Had he been only a minute later, the Mother knew what would have happened. Where I’d now be. Snow swirled and eddied in the garden, catching in the brown fibers of the burlap covering the shrubs My mate who had worked so hard and so selflessly, all without hope that I would ever be with him We had both fought for that love, bled for it. Rhys had died for it.

My Review:

I know this is a novella so I wasn’t expecting anything too crazy. I just love this world in general, even though I was frustrated with some things here. To start off with, what was the point of Mor’s chapters? Just felt they were out of place. Especially since this is a bridge between book 3 and 4, so obviously the main character who is in book 4 would have chapters here along with Feyre and Rhys, but why Mor?

Also is Tamlin getting a book? I need to be in his head! I feel for the beast and think he’s changeable and redeemable. Also why the heck is Elain so rude to Lucian for no reason? I could see if he was being a creep and stalking her … just don’t get it. I want to see the Nesta who we saw in book 3, not whatever she has become. My baby Azriel, I need a full book on you!

As always, the chemistry between Rhys and Feyre was on fire! They have such a beautiful bond. Overall, as a novella, I feel it was a good glimpse of what is to come… I just wish the full book was coming sooner!

Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin

Title: A Court of Wings and Ruin

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Date of Publication: May 2, 2017


Goodreads Summary:

Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin’s maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit-and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords-and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.

My Review:

So, first off loved this book! Sarah J. Maas just has a way of sucking me in with all her characters. Pretty much the bond between Rhysand and Feyre is the heart of this book, but there is loads of action, character building, and I could visualize each and every one of her sentences.

Characters… Rhysand is so my number one, but Azriel, Cassian, Nesta, Mor, Elain, Lucien, Amren… Each of them has their own specific personality, and I care about each one differently as if they were my own. It’s hard for me to connect to characters like I have here.

There is action, and I’m not going to lie, I was scared in some of the book, not knowing what was going to happen to everyone. I’m not going to spoil anything, so read it. I am so anxious to know who is going to be at the center of narrating in book four because there are a few that I definitely want to hear from first!


Have you started this series yet? Who are you hoping to narrate book 4?

Review: A Court of Mist and Fury

Title: A Court of Mist and Fury

Author: Sarah J. Maas

Date of Publication: May 3, 2016


First off I hate having to wait for books, so after reading A Court of Thorns and Roses I didn’t know what to do with myself… So a year goes by… Waiting… and Waiting… and then my book finally arrives!  Not to mention the mail man was late with my book, but then I put the precious thing in my hands and fist pump to the clouds.

If you don’t already know what this is about which you should…

The stunning sequel to Sarah J. Maas’ New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses.

Goodreads Summary:

Feyre survived Amarantha’s clutches to return to the Spring Court–but at a steep cost. Though she now has the powers of the High Fae, her heart remains human, and it can’t forget the terrible deeds she performed to save Tamlin’s people.

Nor has Feyre forgotten her bargain with Rhysand, High Lord of the feared Night Court. As Feyre navigates its dark web of politics, passion, and dazzling power, a greater evil looms–and she might be key to stopping it. But only if she can harness her harrowing gifts, heal her fractured soul, and decide how she wishes to shape her future–and the future of a world cleaved in two.

So I first and foremost am not a big fan of love triangles unless they are done right.  After reading book one I just knew that Rhysand would most likely be a love interest, and I was set on not going to have it because I liked Tamlin so much, but Sarah J. Maas has officially changed my mind.

Feyre I feel like is an incredibly strong character, and I may not always agree with her but when she loves someone she fights from the depths of her heart for them.  In the beginning she is at home with Tamlin after the showdown with Amarantha, and we find out that they are engaged and getting ready to get married.

I didn’t realize what a control freak Tamlin really was, and I get it okay!  After all you guys have been through I. Get. It. But let the girl do stuff on her own!

Anyways Rhysand comes into save the day on the day of their wedding, and I was like oh no here we go…

But dang it Rhys has become one of my ultimate book boyfriendss and made me feel like dancing.

This book had so much magic, and some of the fae fly.  Can I have my own wings now too?

We got to see a little more of Feyre’s sisters in this one. Nesta was still as feisty as ever, and I liked it.

Now for all the romance haters this book wasn’t just that it had action and amazing new side characters (Lucien please don’t become all creepy after what occurred with you), and yes there is a cliffhanger, butttttttt…. it isn’t one of catastrophe but still has me yearning and craving the next book.



What do you guys think about love triangles?  What other fae type books or fantasy books do you recommend?
