Kendra begins to realize the weight she actually carries and how much sway she has on the future of not only her friends and loved ones but also for her entire race and community. We get more hints of how her destiny fits in with the more powerful beings that oversea this world. It is fascinating to see how she reacts to each of these realizations and highlights her strength, spirit, and stubbornness.
And to balance that out, of course, is Tristan. In a slightly different role in the novel, his place as kindred spirit and confidante established, their relationship in Billow is more mature but no less tortured. They are first and foremost a comfort to one another and I can't express how happy that makes me, shipping aside.
While the world-building continues to be spectacular in Billow, I think the second highest point in this piece are the secondary characters. Aubrey, Ian, Cam, Julian - they all only add to this amazing world and character. Jordain, the powerful figure in charge of the Ondines, also makes significant appearances in Billow, adding not only to Kendra's burden but also to the overall lore in Raveling's world.
I couldn't wait to read Billow after Whirl and I wasn't disappointed. It wasn't what I was expecting but it was exactly what was needed, I think, before the epicness that is Crest. A great read and sequel.
Though her attitude for the majority of this story scared the ever-loving crap out of me. She was so violent and unrelenting in her pursuit for vengeance, and she just wasn't understanding what everyone around her was trying to warn her about. I do believe, however, that she is finally starting to grow into the person she was destined to be. I think that she is finally starting to walk the path of the Sondaleur, how it was intended to be walked.
I have thoroughly enjoyed watching her become a better version of herself and cannot wait to witness what else is in store for her and hers.
