Synopsis
Feyre, Rhys, and their close-knit circle of friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve.

Yet even the festive atmosphere can't keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated--scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.





My thoughts
Loved to be back in this series. I had such a big bookhangover when I finished A Court of Wings and Ruin. I was glad to hear more books were coming, and I really like this novella as a book in between! I'm so sad I have to wait SO LONG for the next book in this series...

Pros
  • Glad to be back: I would have survived if the ACOTAR series ended after the third book, but I'm so glad that more is to come. The characters are in my heart and I'm happy to read more about them. I have an awesome ACOTAR screensaver by Charlie Bowater, so you can imagine how big of a fan I am of this series. It was a great feeling to be back!
  • War: A lot of books forget to show how much impact a war has on the characters. In a lot of books, the book ends with the war, and you have no idea how it fares with the characters afterwards. It was so strong; how this book was able to show you what it does to the characters and how traumatizing it is.
  • POVS: It was so cool to read parts of the books in the POV of other characters in this series. I was curious about these characters and it was a great addition to get to know more about them and their thoughts.
  • Next book: I CAN'T WAIT! I'M SO EXCITED AFTER THIS BOOK!


Cons
  • POVS: At the beginning of the book, I had to get used to the switching POV's. When I was used to it, it was a great addition.
  • Had to get into: I needed 40 pages or so, to get into this book. After that I couldn't put it away!
Overall
ACOTAR is my favorite series EVER. I'm so glad that there are more books to come. If you liked the first 3 books, you'll also love this novella. In the meanwhile I've already fallen in love with Throne of Glass, also by Sarah J. Maas. Just to make my message short: I'm just a very big Sarah J. Maas FANGIRL!

Memorable quotes from this book
"To the blessed darkness from which we are born, and to which we return."

Thanks for reading!
I'd love to talk books; please let me know what yo think about this book/review!
