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! 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 this week's type
• Share a picture 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
• Put your link in the Linky thing and comment
This week's sidekick type is NOTORIOUS!Jaclyn at JC's Book Haven chose Vlad Tepesh from The Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost. Now I really have to read this series because I just saw in her post that Vlad (AKA Dracula) has a couple stand alones in a new spinoff series.
My head was spinning on this sidekick type. Then Jaclyn offered the best suggestion, Bubba from the Sookie Stackhouse series. How I love the vampire world Charlaine Harris created. I must confess I'm a diehard fan of the early books, but my brain has shut off all knowledge that certain events have transpired in the later installments. So here's Bubba, a vamp with issues, and not the kind you may be thinking. Some people just can't let go and when you have the choice to sire Elvis Presley, you do it. You do it badly, you do it even though the guy needed to float off into the sexy superstar hall of fame in the sky. Bubba didn't turn out aces on the flip side of mortality. Nope. Bubba is a bit slow, really likes furry purry animals (not in a good way), and he's not so bad. Oh, and do not tell him who he looks like. Just don't do it!
