Tell Me Something Tuesday: Favorite Sidekick

Posted March 27, 2012 | 8 Comments


This is my first time participating in Tell Me Something Tuesday hosted by Cambria Hebert.  It’s pretty much what it sounds like.  There is a weekly question, and we answer it.  If you would like to participate, link your post over on Cambria’s blog.
This week’s question is: 
Who is your favorite sidekick in a book? (You know the BFF of the main character)
There are a couple of sidekick I love… 
1.  Jenks from Kim Harrison’s series – The Hollows
Jenks is a four inch pixy, but don’t let his small size fool you, because he is a force to be reckoned with.  He can get into places others can’t, he’s fast as a vampire, and extremely protective over those he cares about.  Jenks is also one of the funniest characters around.  He’s crude, inappropriate at times, and is a complete smart-ass… but he’ll always give it to you straight.  I would definitely want Jenks by my side!
2.  Riley from Amanda Hocking’s series –  The Hollows
     (Yes, both are called The Hollows)
Riley is a lioness.  That’s right, a member of the big cat family.  She doesn’t have magical powers, she doesn’t talk, she doesn’t do anything supernatural.  What does she do?  She can take down a herd of zombies faster than you can say “holy Siegfried and Roy!”  Ever since Remy rescued her, Riley has been a loyal, but distant sidekick. When the zombie apocalypse comes, I want a lioness by my side.
Those are my top two favorites.  A pixy and a lioness 🙂
