Dreadfully dull.

So boring! It does offer a bit of insight into other characters, but really, it just waffles on aimlessly.

Too Fluffy

I really enjoyed the main ACOTAR trilogy but I left it a few months before I decided to read this one. I needed a book with Star in the title for my Astronomy OWL so I thought now was the perfect time to pick this up.

This book picks up a few months after the end of A Court of Wings and Ruin. The gang are trying to rebuild Prythian from the aftermath of the war with Hybern and preparing for the Winter Solstice.

I enjoyed this catch up with Feyre and the others but it was all too happy. I know, I know it doesn’t always have to be doom and gloom but there was no twist, no big drama, just a family fight that has been long brewing.

I didn’t hate it. I just wanted something a bit more. The other three books were so epic that this one just fell a little flat. It was all too fluffy for me.

Beautiful bridge book between the two trilogies.

Although not a great deal happened in this book it was lovely just to interact with the characters again and get a little glimpse into what the next three books will be like.

A Nice Setting Novella

From all the books I have found this was the most settled one, allowing us to make room for the spin off novellas for the other characters in the series. Sarah J Maas has an excellent way to create character development and she does this in ACOFAS so well that the Maasians of the world are all in hope for a Cassian and Nesta spinn off! The world needs to see that world and know how it develops

Simply wonderful

I loved this book. It isn't the big sweeping epic of war and battles that the preoivs book was, it was a more personal story of family, loss and healing. I only wish it could be longer.

Love the build up, the way the characters are introduced, the whole concept is brilliant.
I'm totally hooked.

Fab little short story

I really enjoyed delving back into the world of ACOTAR and seeing how the war had left its effects on each character.
I had to slow the narration down to 0.90 as at speed 1 it sounded too fast to what I was used to previously and i didnt feel like the narrator kept the same voices as in the previous book. I still miss the first narrator.

Overall enjoyed and cannot wait for the next one.

Short but Incredibly sweet

was a lovely book and It feels almost like a bridge between stories. A proper ending to one adventure and a hint of what is to come In the Next. although much shorter than the previous books and the threat level dialed right down, it is great because it delves Into the minds of the characters, how they feel after all that's happened .... how they are trying to move on and make sense of it all.
As a reader I think I needed this Endind...

as for the Audio. It was great. The Narrator performed beautifully and the quality crisp and clear.

Meh...

I enjoyed the first two books in this series and I found the third book enjoyable, but the last battle dragged on too long. I began this book with relief that the last was over and hope that I would get back into the story quickly. Unfortunately, this book is full of what feels like endless shopping and small talk. I am well over half way and nothing seems to have happened yet. Thankfully this is just a short book!

I am now hoping that I will enjoy book 5. I love the characters and the world building but the story seems to have fizzled out at this point. Fingers crossed...

You can skip it

It was rather eventless and boring. A recap on how everyone is doing and feeling and very little has changed. I also agree with the comments that the focus on Feyre and Rhysand becomes repetitive now after so many books and other characters should take the spotlight.

What a delightful novella!

Sarah J. Maas is truly the most generous author out there! She could have easily let us stew until she’d dropped the next book in a Throne of Glass series, but no. We have this wonderful tale to keep us satiated until then. She is undoubtedly my favorite author of this decade!

Another world

I have loved this series and couldn’t wait for the latest release in it.. I hope there are more but would be happy to listen again. If you want a read that makes you forget you have a life this is it. I could not stop listening. It had all I looked for in a book. Drama, excitement,even a bit scary. This series took my mind to another place. I have never been so addicted. Best read,listen I’ve ever had for entertainment value. You must have an open mind and a good imagination. I hope they make a TV series on it. Even if they don’t read,listen from the first book in order or you will get lost. Can’t say enough about this series by Sara J. Mass. Brilliant hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

In love forever

I loved it! Everything, the story, the narrator, the world. I loved everything about this book. Except, maybe, that it ended.

nothibg happend

Not very interesting. Nothing really happend. Would however recommend if you want romantic scenes, gift shopping and repetition of what's already happend in the previous books.

Horrible

I was disappointed with this book. After a fantastic sequence, the author presents this story without grace, sombia and with embittered personages, haunted by the past.
After understanding the point of view of the story, I can say I did not like it at all. I think it could have been presented differently.
