REVIEW: A Court of Frost and Starlight (Court of Thorns and Roses #3.5) by Sarah J. Maas

A Court of Frost and Starlight
My Rating: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Very little "action" happening in this novella, but from what I understand, it's meant to be more of a "bridge" anyway from A Court of Wings and Ruin (book 3) to A Court of Silver Flames (book 4, or possibly book 5 if you're looking at Amazon since Amazon considers ACOFAS as book 4, while Goodreads calls it book 3.5) *shrug* 🤷🏼

That said, it's a fun little read that takes place during the Winter Solstice... and since the characters should be taking time to spend with family and not putting out fires anyway, it fits. I mean, they can't be at war 365 days a year. Even the bad guys like to take a little time off to celebrate the holidays! 🤣

We get a bit more insight into Nesta and Cassian, which will actually be expanded upon in much greater detail in ACOSV. Yay! So was this book really required? NO. Could it's contents have been seamlessly incorporated into the following book (ACOSF) instead? YES, definitely! Should this book have cost less than the others in the series? I think so, yes. Though I rented it from my local library anyway, so that didn't really affect me.
