Sidekick Showcase, previously known as Sidekick Saturday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn't have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! I will post my Sidekicks on Saturday, and so will Jaclyn, then whichever day during the week that you would like to post yours, you can put your link in on Jaclyn's page.
Just do the following:
• Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to put in the spotlight that fits in the week's topic
• Share a picture (if you can) and information about the character • Give the title and author of a book the character can be found in
• Please don't include too many spoilers when describing why the character is such a great sidekick
• The day of your post, put your link in below and grab the code for your post so you can see the others that post their's throughout the week as well
There are many great sidekicks I could have chosen as todays spitfire, but I decided stragith away to go with Dani O'Malley from Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. This series is very hot, and there are several different kinds of fae involved in the storyline. Dani is a young fae-seer, and she also has a special talent. She's so quick normal people (and fae) can't see her when she starts speeding up! She's young, only fourteen, and pretty naive, but she also tells people exactly what she thinks of the world and everyone who lives in it!
“What the feck?” Dani snapped when I answered. “You sleep like the fecking dead up there! I been calling you for five fecking minutes!”
And unfortunately, because I read these books before I started blogging, I can't find anymore quotes :( I'm very sorry about that! But Dani is a true spitfire, very naive, always trying to save other people, and she's hiding a huge secret. Her extreme speed is of great help to her, and possibly saves her life several times. And I love how she consciously says 'feck' instead of 'fuck' so that she doesn't really swear...
