Hope warms the coldest night.
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.
I really enjoyed the Court of Thorns and Roses series so far so I wanted more in this world. This novella is mostly meant to bridge the gap between the first trilogy and the second one focusing on different main characters.
This little novella reads a bit more like fanfiction. It allows the reader a glimpse of what is going on with the main group of characters after the big finale of the third book. I did enjoy seeing everyone and I liked seeing what each person was up to. I feel moving forward that we need to know more about what is going on with these characters when they are just relaxing and not facing life and death situations. I also felt this novella really helped us see more of Feyre’s sisters and how they really feel and who they might be spending their time with.
Overall I’m excited about where the next series can go. I certainly love Cassian so I hope to see more of his story in the next book, which I felt this novella set us up for.
