If you haven’t started reading this series… run to the book store and get started! I am 99.9% sure you will love it if you are interested in young adult fantasy and some romance. So, here I am with the next two book reviews in this amazing series! Keep reading along to learn my thoughts on the ACOWAR and ACOFAS books!
After reading ACOMAF, this book had a lot to live up to. I mean that book was by far the best one! Sadly, I found this one to be quiet boring. (I hope I’m not the only one that thinks that haha) There was a large lack of excitement and events throughout majority of the book. Majority of this book was a build up to the last 200 pages. Within those last 200 pages, I felt that all the events were suddenly crammed to the end. I like what took place but was not a fan of how it was mapped out.
Overall, I would rate the beginning of this book a 3.5 star but the end is a whooping 5! Again, the way everything was laid out on the storyline was not it for me. But Sarah is a fantastic writer and has a way of making you really connect with all the characters. I love her style and can’t wait to read some of her others books.
After reading this series and knowing none of these characters are actually real makes me kinda sad! (nothing like getting attached to fictional characters 😉 ) But that’s besides the point because the love I have for all these characters is overwhelming, seriously, I will be comparing guys I meet to the fictional high standards I have created from these characters. Overall, the character development and growth throughout the series makes you love the characters even more! You are able to establish that feeling of growth and change with the characters as the series continues on, which is one reason I really love Sarah’s writing!
I am looking forward to reading ACOSF to have a better perspective and understanding on Nesta. She is the only character that still leaves me confused. ACOWAR does provide more Nesta and Cassian interaction, which I loved. I also appreciate that Elaine came out of her shell somewhat within this book. This is the first book that has allowed you to see some more of her character and that she is not just a plant lady.
This book was a shorty but a goodie! It is not very comparable to the other books in perspective of events and things to occur. I think of this as a more relaxed and less intense part of the series. This book was more informational and light hearted. A Court of Frost and Starlight takes place after the “war and ruin” that occurred in the previous book. This expands on what the inner circle does and how they are moving on with their life after the fact.
If you didn’t already love feysand enough, then you will love them even more after this book. This little glimpse into their life and their future plans is super heart warming and only left me smiling!
I hope this has convinced you start reading this series if you haven’t already! If you are looking for more book reviews you can find them HERE!
