Narrated by Feyre and Rhysand, this bridges the events in A Court of Wings and Ruin and the upcoming novels in the series. 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.

Nothing in this book is integral to the series. It is more of a glimpse at our characters after the events in Court of Wings and Ruin. I still enjoyed it, though, more than that last book....So my anticipation for the next book in the series is more hopeful.

Some good character growth in this book, but not much of a story. Lovers of this series will enjoy reading this bridge into the next part as we move on with new characters.

Very quick read and a nice filler right after the war in book 3 to tied us over until book 4 comes out. I am on team Cassian and Nesta. I hope they are drawn to each other in a good way and I hope Nesta gets a little nicer. She needs to get over herself. And Elain needs to wake up and realize that Lucien is her true mate and he is a great guy.

I so wish this book had been released in December instead of May, because it's set at the winter solstice and while I was not totally in the mood for it when I read it, it would be the perfect read for this time of year. To be honest, this book feels a bit self-indulgent -- it does nothing to move the plot of this series forward, basically serving as a bridge between the first three books and whatever is coming next (which will, I believe, focus on some of the minor characters more). But fans of the series will love the chance to dive back into the world without being worried one of their favorite characters is about to die in dramatic fashion, so for that reason alone, it's a perfect, relaxing holiday read.

I love Sarah J. Maas Books and this novella was cute. It gave some more insight to the characters and there relationships and it also gave a spoiler for Feyre and Rhys future! I'm so excited for the next book!

5 Stars - I highly recommend if you have read the ACoTaR series!

This book picks up where the final book in the trilogy left off, and creates a bridge to the three spin off novels that Maas will write next.

I'm not going to give spoilers about this one, but I absolutely loved this teeny tiny novella! Being back in my favorite fictional world, with the characters, etc. was a dream. This is set at Winter Solstice, so it had a lovely wintery/hygge/holiday sort of vibe to it. I loved seeing what happened with the characters after the trilogy, what was going on in the world, and seeing a sneak peek for the first spin off book has me super excited to read it!! Squee! I had a pretty good guess where this novella would go, and where at least one of the spin offs would go.. and I think I was pretty spot on, but also pleasantly surprised. Don't go into this expecting a ton of plot, it's been described as a novella and a bridge book for a reason! Just enjoy it!

Great book, but not quite like the other books by SJM. This one focuses on relationships and emotions, so there aren't any cool battle scenes. Still a great book though.

What is this? I mean, it's the length of a novel, but it's called "3.1" in the series and evidently we'll be gifted with another non-book before the "actual" fourth novel in the series. I'm really glad I got this from the library and didn't buy a copy.

On the upside, this is a nice little slice-of-life story about the friends rebuilding and adjusting to life after the recent war with the King of Hybern. Characters are moved on the board a bit to get ready for the next act. We see a couple of set-ups for new conflict and one possible creepy creature.

On the downside, this is literally a slice-of-life vignette about the characters being ready for and celebrating solstice (cough*Christmas*cough). I'd place this squarely in the romance novel category, a category I don't read, but imagine to be filled with this type of relentless thinking about, almost having, and finally having sex, written in the kind of detail and with word choices that can be so cringey that Penthouse Forum seems like literature in comparison.

While some disliked the shopping, which was second only to descriptions of sex, I did like the idea of Feyre getting used to having money to spend and her guilt over having more than others. She also deals with survivor's guilt and how best to use her gifts to help rebuild her kingdom.

If you want to know what happens, check it out, don't buy it.

I didn't realize the book was a novella but I loved it all the same. I was honestly a little worried that Sara J. Maas was going to stretch a series that had already "ended", but this little book was a perfect addition that gave us a look into their normal lives when they weren't stopping doomsday or a world war. It made me nostalgic because of all the references from the previous books and the ending was so happy it made me cry! I recommend this book to everyone who has read the series or is a fan of Sara J. Maas.

I read this for the "a book with a 6-word title" part of my 2018 reading challenge. I loved it, it's a perfect continuation of the series.
