Soulstar | C. L. Polk
10 posts | 8 read | 3 to read
With Soulstar, C. L. Polk concludes her riveting Kingston Cycle, a whirlwind of magic, politics, romance, and intrigue that began with the World Fantasy Award-winning Witchmark. Assassinations, deadly storms, and long-lost love haunt the pages of this thrilling final volume. For years, Robin Thorpe has kept her head down, staying among her people in the Riverside neighborhood and hiding the magic that would have her imprisoned by the state. But when Grace Hensley comes knocking on Clan Thorpes door, Robins days of hiding are at an end. As freed witches flood the streets of Kingston, scrambling to reintegrate with a kingdom that destroyed their lives, Robin begins to plot a course that will ensure a freer, juster Aeland. At the same time, she has to face her long-bottled feelings for the childhood love that vanished into an asylum twenty years ago. Can Robin find happiness among the rising tides of revolution? Can Kingston survive the blizzards that threaten, the desperate monarchy, and the birth throes of democracy? Find out as the Kingston Cycle comes to an end.

This novel was nominated for the 2022 Aurora Best Novel award and the entire series was nominated for a 2022 Hugo award.

I liked this final book very much but it didn't amaze me the way Witchmark, the first book, did.

I really enjoyed the final book in the Kingston cycle. Witchmark is still my favourite, but this was a solid conclusion. Also, so much cover love 💖

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new - don‘t judge me I have a lot of books.
Join the fun if you want. This is day 322.

Aaaaaaaaaaa an excellent close to this trilogy. All three of these books were at once immensely satisfying, but also hard. Through the lense of this steampunk ish magical not! London, many themes and frustrations and injustices and hopes that parallel contemporary politics are explored. The resonance make the stakes feel even higher than they are-- which makes the anxiety deeper just as it makes the Justice sweeter. A+, excellent, well done.

ssleif Also #queerbooks, #lgbtbooks, #lgbtfantasy. There was a wonderful non-binary character in here, and a central romantic relationship that was just unbelievably tender and strong and I loved it. This series really does do a good job of balancing the emotional and romantic arcs of the characters with the sociopolitical ones. 14mo

I finally get to read SOULSTAR! I dove in while I cooked and ate cauliflower steak, and damn. Things get real intense real fast. I think this book‘s gonna run me ragged in deeply necessary ways.
