A Court of Frost & Starlight (A Court of Thorns & Roses 3.1) by Sarah J Maas
A Court of Frost & Starlight (A Court of Thorns & Roses 3.1) - Sarah J Maas
Sarah J Maas is usually a magician of myth. She can make the most standard character conversations lead you on twists and turns and present complex backstories, however, I am disappointed to say that I got none of that in this recent addition to ACoTaR. I give this book a three in myth because I actually struggle to say what happened in the book. It wasn’t a full novel, 272 pages when the other court books are 400-600 pages, but I felt those ~300 pages should have pushed some part of the story forward. In reality this book was a mundane snapshot into the holiday season with our beloved characters.
I will still give this book a decent rating on magic as the magic she creates is in her characters and their interactions with each other. This book was no different. You certainly felt like you had a unique opportunity to peak in on the Night Court solstice celebration (the equivalent of Christmas holidays).
I think this would have been much more fun if it had been released around the holidays season last year. It would have made it more forgivable that there was no real plot, just a holiday episode with your friends at the Night Court.
