Summary

When Feyre kills a wolf, a beastlike creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a magical land, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal. As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient shadow is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it....

Incredibly boring

Literally nothing happens in this book. If you enjoy Christmas shopping montages be my guest, but I could not wait for this thing to end.

Dreadfully dull.

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

Not one thing happens.

Ok let me first of all day that I am a huge fan of Sarah J. Maas and I have read every A Court of Thorns and Roses (ACOTAR) and Throne of Glass book (Some allot more than once). I intend to review them all but thought I’d start with the one I didn’t like. So here goes… Why on earth was this book released as a standalone title and not just a few chapters in A Court of Silver Flames? Because nothing happens in it worth writing about and all it seems to do is set up the next book so that Nesta can be the protagonist. If I had picked it up as my first Sarah J. Maas book and wasn’t already invested in the series, then I would have missed out on some glorious stories as I wouldn’t have picked up another of her books! So if you are new to this author and decide to miss this book on my recommendation I implore you, make sure you give the Throne of Glass series a read and the other ACOTAR books because they are fantastic!

Utterly boring

I loved the original trilogy and characters and was excited for this small extra to see how a couple of narratives developed. I was very disappointed. There was no development in the narratives, there was lots of extra narratives that were started with no development or finish. I was excited by the prospect of stories from the perspective of other characters, but then they were written in third person rather than first person, so you didn't get a full perspective on how they were feeling. I was honestly bored, Unless you really care about what they got each other for Christmas then I would actually recommend giving this a pass as it brings down the rest of the stories. 6 hours of them tediously pottering about their days, 20 minutes of anything actually interesting.

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.

Don't bother

Nothing happens! Where's the rest of it? It's just a story of her painting again

Should have been an epilogue or a prologue

I can't understand why this was a standalone book. There is no story. It's entertaining, but I just kept waiting for something to happen and nothing does. Feel free to skip to the next book in the series.

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.

Nothing happens

I really enjoy the Court series but this book is a total filler. Nothing happens. It's entirely based around a holiday. Feels like a Christmas special.

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

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!

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.

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.
