Goodreads Summary:

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.

what happened in A Court of Frost and Starlight?

  • A Court of Frost and Starlight opens with Feyre thinking about the Night Court instead of enjoying the winter solstice.
  • Rhysand is wondering whether or not Feyre is too young for him (I mean, probably?!).
  • The female Illyrians are allowed to train to fight. Cassian joins the Illyrians in the mountains and thinks about how his mother was killed.
  • Feyre speaks to Ressina, who’s very grateful for Feyre’s efforts during the battle. Mor arrives and the pair go shopping for presents.
  • The group leave for Hewn City.
  • Mor thinks about the torture she was put under during her time in the Autumn Court.
  • Eris says that Tamlin may grant permission for the Fae to go into the human realm. Humans don’t trust the Fae, so this’ll probably be an issue. Azriel and Rhysand discuss this a bit.
  • Lucien goes to see Tamlin.
  • Cassian goes shopping.
  • Feyre is supposed to join Ressina for her painting class, but instead ends up in an abandoned gallery. Feyre ends up painting a self-portrait – a beast of darkness.
  • Rhysand joins Lucien in the Spring Court. Tamlin’s place has been destroyed, but Tamlin is still living there. Rhysand warns Tamlin to guard his borders to keep the humans happy. Rhysand leaves after this lecture.
  • Rhysand buys some jewellery for Amren.
  • Feyre and Cassian decorate the house, and get mocked for it.
  • Feyre asks where Nesta is, and Elain says that Nesta wants nothing more to do with them all.
  • Feyre goes looking for Nesta and finds her in a tavern. She wants Nesta to join them all for dinner.
  • Rhysand tells Mor that she’s needed to win Keir over.
  • Feyre goes shopping with Elain and Feyre purchases a tapestry. She starts to paint it in her apparent new studio, but Ressina interrupts. Ressina tells Feyre that she should buy the studio from Polina.
  • Feyre tells Rhysand that she wants to run a painting class as a sort of therapy group for people who are still hurt from the war.
  • Amren invites Feyre over, and tells her that she’s still in contact with Nesta.
  • Rhysand attends a meeting with Devlon, and his brothers join him.
  • Rhysand gifts Feyre a sketchbook, a satchel, and a scarf for her birthday. Elain makes her a cake.
  • Lucien arrives back, and tells Feyre that he is living with Vassa and Jurian. He also says that Tamlin is broken.
  • Nesta arrives at the celebrations.
  • The group exchange more solstice gifts.
  • Cassian takes Nesta home, and she insists that she doesn’t want anything to do with them.
  • Rhysand tells Feyre that his mother made her dresses.
  • Feyre tells Rhysand that she wants to have a baby with him.
  • Afterwards, Rhysand takes Feyre to an estate that he bought for her and their future family.
  • Rhysand goes to see Tamlin, and assures him that soldiers will be arriving to protect the border.
  • Tamlin asks Rhysand if Feyre will forgive him.
  • Feyre tells Ressina that Polina’s family wouldn’t let her pay for the studio. They asked her to donate the money to charity instead.
  • Rhysand and co. go to Devlon’s camp to watch the Illyrian women train.
  • Feyre leads her first lesson with Ressina and the children seem to have a good time. Rhysand arrives once the class is over and he says he’ll always protect her.
