A Court of Frost and Starlight | Rating: ★★★☆☆ (3.5)

I really enjoyed this one despite its probable unnecessary publication. While A Court of Frost and Starlight serves little in terms of plotline, it does capture the essence of love, friendship, family and family found. Ultimately, it's a breath of chilled air--which makes it obvious why it's been hit or miss amongst fans.

I feel for it, like I felt for with the collection of Pretty Little Liars holiday stories. While it has little to offer for the central story arcs, it still provides readers with something light and warm to curl up with in the midst of the winter. I read it twice--once upon its publication earlier this year and then once more now, just days before Christmas. I enjoyed seeing a change of pace for the characters and I thoroughly enjoyed, well, seeing the characters in the setting of Winter Solstice.

Although it is short, it does provide us with a little something extra and hints at where the series will go in the future. A Court of Frost and Starlight may not be the strongest release in an incredible series, but it is frothy; romantic, sweet and I appreciate the balance it provides us with how action-packed the previous installments had been. We finally get to see our favourite characters as they are--which is family, for better or for worse.  

As always, this is identified as young adult but it does have some graphic sex scenes throughout the series that are more suitable for the new adult genre rather than YA.
