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.
This was a nice check-in with Feyre and friends after ACOWAR, but ultimately it didn’t have enough substance to wow me like the rest of the series.
I did enjoy it more on my reread, and it was perfect to read around the holidays since it is set around the Winter Solstice. I appreciated some of the sentimental moments among the Court of Dreams and Feyre’s healing journey, and I think this novella will be an important bridge between the original ACOTAR trilogy and future books set in Prythian, but I miss all the conflict from the full-length novels.
