THAT ENDING WAS SO BEAUTIFUL AND I AM SO EMOTIONAL.
This book is just one big ball of fluff, with an occasional bit of smut.
So, honestly, what is to dislike about that?
This book is obviously only short, and it’s more of a bridge book than anything. We get a glimpse at life for the Inner Circle after the war, and a few little hints about the unrest in some of the courts regarding the loss of the Wall.
(But let’s just focus on the Winter Solstice present giving, yes? It’s so much happier. We’ll get to the doom and gloom in the next books.)
With this book is also the introduction of a few new POVs, which, honestly? I didn’t really care for them. I liked Rhys’s (obviously), and Mor’s, but Cassian and Nesta’s chapters just bored me a bit.
I also keep waiting for an ACOTAR book that will make me into a Nesta fangirl, but I sadly still hate her. She’s still rude (in one scene she’s rude to Feyre in a pub, and then has the gall to tell Feyre that her rent is due – in case she’d forgotten. And Feyre, being the sweetheart she is, gives it to her) and I just can’t get away with her.
There’s an excerpt at the end of ACOFAS from the next books, and it looks like they’re gonna be focusing on Nessian, which I am hardcore devastated about.
I’m still gonna read them because it’s SJM and I would legit read her shopping list, but I’m not ecstatic about it. Hopefully we’ll get more Feysand and Mor, which will sweeten the deal. And, who knows, maybe I’ll grow to like Nesta (haha doubt it).
