A tease…with four months left until book 4, A Court of Frost and Starlight gives a glimpse of what the characters are up to after the war and what’s to come.
Spoilers if you haven’t yet any of the previous books!
When I first heard about another book in the ACOTAR series was to be released this year I was filled with glee. Then I learned that it was actually a filler book, and immediately felt cheated. This book is actually a look into what book 4 will bring, so not a 3.1 but a 3.5 book. Yeah, totally roller coaster of emotions!
Little confused? I’ll just sum up!
Finding allies isn’t easy, especially after a war. Everyone is desperately in need of a xanax! Rhys and Feyre continue their duties as High Lord and High Lady while still trying to deal with what they went through during Hybern. It was interesting to read how much it affect them in very different ways. After each book they managed to get closer, considering they’re mates, but that doesn’t stop the troubles of their lives. I loved that!
SOOOO many heart breaks! And it was the dudes feeling the hurt this time. Lucien is avoiding Elaine. Cassian and Nesta are no different, expect for Nesta. One thing that surprised me was definitely Nesta. After everything, the one thing I was certain of was that Elaine is the fragile one and Nesta is the hardcore bitch. The bitch part certainly didn’t change but it was frustrating not really knowing what is going on with her. Again, this book is a tease!
Az, poor poor Azriel. Dude needs a hug or some ass or both! I have no idea the direction the author will go with him and Mor. Though nothing will probably happen, she’s already made that clear, something is going on with him and Elaine, which confuses me!
I’m glad Tamlin made an appearance, but how he appeared was a shock yet satisfying. The guy wasn’t a bad guy in the first book and though he royally fucked up, multiple times, why shouldn’t he feel somewhat guilty. I’m very interested in seeing what he does next.
For a book that’s less than 300 pages quite a bit happens. It leaves you wanting more and more, as every book should do. It was great reading about these characters again and anticipating the next book when shit hits the fan. Because it will!
Feyre and Rhys proved, once again why their the hottest couple in the series. You see them growing not just together but as individuals. Every character has something they must deal with and I’m eager to how it plays out. It leaves you with more questions but some insights that had me going “awwww.”
A book worth reading, especially if you’re having ACOTAR withdraws and need something to hold on to until October!
