A Court of Frost and Starlight: Review

Waste of time.

I had pre-ordered this book but now I’m re-considering to even order the remaining books in this series.

ACOFAS starts off after some time has passed from the events of ACOWAR. Ferye, Rhys, and the inner circle are learning to accept themselves after what they’ve lost during the war and preparing for the festivities of the Winter Solstice.

This book lacked the SJM fast-paced writing and several paragraphs felt repeated sometimes with the exact same words. The plot itself didn’t progress much further. In just 229 pages, it actually felt that it was quite a useless read.

There were several chapters that were either a flashback sequence or just the characters remembering

the past events. In my opinion, those chapters were simply there to add to the word count because honestly someone reading this novella is more likely to have read the previous 3 books.

Moreover, having read more POC books of POC Authors/POC Characters in the duration from ACOWAR to ACOFAS, this book felt utterly ‘white’.

1.5 out of 5 stars.

A Court of Thorns and Roses: Review

Wow this book!16096824
This is the first I’ve read from Sarah J Mass, and i’m happy i read it.
The story is medium to fast paced, without ever dragging or cutting out on descriptions.

ACOTAR is loosely based on The Beauty and The Beast, set in a faerie realm. However, the main story soon unfolds, and you realize this is much more than simple ‘Beauty and the Beast’.
The character were developed as much is necessary, and when the ‘evil’ character came into view, you’d truly hate them with all your heart. Some other characters were complex characters whom you weren’t sure to like or not.

As for the main characters, Feyre and Tamlin, were perfect, in my opinion [Edit: future-me disagrees with this statement], I started to care for them from the first chapter they were introduced. (but i’m looking for more attachment from a reader-to-character standpoint in the future books)
The ending is complete in its own way, I was satisfied with it, even if I wasn’t going to read the sequels.

I am looking forward to continue the series and eagerly waiting for the next book to arrive.

Overall: 4.5/5
