Synopsis

The Winter Solstice. In a week. I was still new enough to being High Lady that I had no idea what my formal role was to be. If we’d have a High Priestess do some odious ceremony, as lanthe had done the year before. A year. Gods, nearly a year since Rhys had called in his bargain, desperate to get me away from the poison of the Spring Court to save me from my despair. Had he been only a minute later, the Mother knew what would have happened. Where I’d now be. Snow swirled and eddied in the garden, catching in the brown fibers of the burlap covering the shrubs My mate who had worked so hard and so selflessly, all without hope that I would ever be with him We had both fought for that love, bled for it. Rhys had died for it.

To the stars who listened, Feyre’
‘To the dreams that are answered, Rhys’

 

My Thoughts

I don’t think I can rave about this novella enough. I know I’m probably biased since I started and fell in love with the Court of Thorns and Roses series this year and honestly I could follow Feyre’s story anywhere, particularly in the Night Court.

You probably couldn’t say there was a great plot to this little slice of Feyre’s story, but being a novella that is assisting to bridge the gap between the initial series and the next, I couldn’t be happier with it.

The story follows Feyre in her first Solstice in the Night Court along with all the other characters we love, jumping between the perspectives of Rhys, Feyre, Morrigan, Cassian & Nesta. Allowing readers to learn more about each of these characters from their perspective.

I loved being back in the world and seeing how the Courts were managing after the events at the end of ‘A Court of Mist and Fury’. It just made me love the series and characters even more.

I honestly only wish their were more pages, although there could be 1.000 pages and all I would want is more.

The novella was thoroughly enjoyable to read and experience. If you are looking for a spectacular plot you may be disappointing, but if you are continuing the series it will be a great bridge novel for what is to come.

‘To the blessed darkness from which we are born, and to which we return’

Unboxing: ‘A Court of Frost and Starlight’ YA Chronicles Box

For the release of ‘A Court of Frost and Starlight’ YA Chronicles have created a special edition box! When I placed my pre-order I was able to choose from receiving the paperback and some goodies, the hardcover and some goodies or both covers and some goodies.

Seeing as I already own the rest of the series in hardcover I decided to order the hardcover with the goodies!

Here’s what was inside…

ACOFAS box 4

Straight up the box was stunning, everything looked gorgeous the second I opened it.

on top was the spoiler card with the amazing ACOFAS artwork on it. Honestly I love it and definitely plan on keeping it. we also got a bookmark with the same artwork on it.

there was a gorgeous coaster with Feyre on it. This stunning design was created by Morganaoanagrom on Tumblr

we also got a ‘Throne of Glass’ Pencil case, which I will be using for my calligraphy pens.

There were two cards with artwork on them, one with a short comic strip featuring Rhysand and Feyre and another with Rhysand and Feyre. They are totally gorgeous and I am definitely going to frame them at some point, both are drawn by Arz28 on instagram

We also got a candle scented ‘winter Solstice’ and created by Faerietales Candles its scented with toffee apple, spice and peppermint. There is also an amazing night court necklace from Sonnet and Fable which I am 100% in love with.

Also included was the funniest pin designed by Knightmares and daydreams

I am totally in love with everything in this box ESPECIALLY the book!

I can’t wait to dive into it, but I am so glad I ordered this box and get to enjoy ACOFAS along with some amazing goodies!
