Review: A Court of Frost and Starlight by Sarah J. Maas

[ UPDATE: I’ve edited this review since my initial posting, dropping the rating from a 4.5 to a 3 (and that’s me being nice). The more I think about this book, the more I realized how disappointing it is, and how unnecessary it feels. It was a money grab disguised as fan service. ]

Characters: 4/5

Writing: 3/5
Plot and Themes: 2/5
Awesomeness Factor: 2/5

Writing: 4/5
Plot and Themes: 4/5
