The next installment in Sarah J. Maas bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series will finally arrive in January – and we now know what it will be called!

Sarah J. Maas fans, prepare your emotions. After what feels like an eternity, the next installment in her bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series is officially on its way – and it has both a title and a release date. (Which is likely sooner than many of us expected.)

The next novel will be titled A Court of Silver Flames and will hit shelves on January 26, 2021.

It will be the first full Court of Thorns and Roses novel that will not focus on the series’ heroine Feyre or her mate Rhys, but rather shift perspective entirely to tell the story of her sister Nesta, who was turned into a High Fae in A Court of Mist and Fury, and has been adjusting to the changes ever since.

It will also, according to Maas’ Instagram post on the subject, finally focus on her relationship with the illyrian warrior Cassian, which most fans have been clamoring to see more of for years.

Mass’ previous novel in this series, A Court of Frost and Starlight, was released two years ago, and was meant to serve as sort of a bridge between the series’ original Feyre and Rhys-focused trilogy and whatever was meant to come after. Its unclear as yet if the rest of the series – currently slated to be three more books – will focus entirely on Nesta and Cassian or whether subsequent installments will feature other characters. But, since A Court of Frost and Starlight also lets us hear from Mor and Cassian in addition to Nesta, the door to explore other stories does seem open.

I would do pretty much anything for a Mor book, is what I’m saying. She’s an amazing character.

But, for now, we’ll just have to start counting down the days until we can read Nesta and Cassian’s story – and see what comes next for all the residents of Prythian.

Next. Crescent City: House of Earth and Blood is Maas at her best. dark

Are you looking forward to another installment in the A Court of Thorns and Roses series? What do you think the future holds for Cassian and Nesta?
