CW: sex scenes, alcohol use

this was a cute enough addition to the series. it's not super plot-involved, as it's basically just following the characters as they gear up for the winters solstice holiday, but I enjoyed it and the interactions between everyone. some additional info regarding some characters & some sex scenes, just not as much action as the other books in the series, so don't expect it. there is a small snowball fight scene, but thats really as action-y as it gets!

Short and sweet. Exactly what this series needed. It was wholesome and heartbreaking (like all in the series) watching the aftermath of the war. Watching a chosen family try to piece one another back together. 
Raw, emotional and beautiful in every way. 
Also a great set up for A Court of Silver Flames!

A cute, side-development novella that gives readers some warmth and happiness with characters that have struggled in the aftermath of acowar. Just a warm and fuzzy addition 🥰

This was incredibly boring. I also hated the writing style - it was full of self importance. Like I get the idea I just think it could’ve been done better in a way that didn’t make me roll my eyes every few sentences.

Though this story did feel like fanfiction — which is a common sentiment — it isn't a particularly bad book, so I do recommend it to ACOTAR fans.

It didn't need to exist; that much is true. But this is a book for people that enjoy these books — not someone looking for a magnificent plot. It feels entirely unfair to see negative reviews from people that decided to read this far out of dislike.

Personally, I don't like Maas’s writing style and enjoyed the previous books for their stories, hence my three-star review on this one; not much happened. I was glad to find that the writing for Rhysand’s voice was much more to my liking than Feyre’s, but I still had my issues with A Court of Frost and Starlight. One is that I just started liking Nesta, and I guess that had to be immediately ruined for me. I do understand where she’s coming from, but she was unnecessary and a damper on my enjoyment of this novella. I would've preferred her to be omitted entirely (Lucian, too for that matter).
