Sidekick Showcase, previously known as Sidekick Saturday, is a weekly bookish meme, hosted here 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, then whichever day during the week that you would like to post yours, you can put your link in on my 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 fit's 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
"Are you kidding me?" was my mom's first reaction to hearing this week's challenge. She's in the middle of a Grisham novel right now, so just scum bags and lawyers probably. My sister was bummed she couldn't tap into Darynda Jones again. I instantly thought of the ghouls in the Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost. I wasn't prepared for zombies when I fell in love with this series, but Frost created the coolest zombies ever. You don't just chomp on a living person and make a ghoul. Oh, no. There is all this prep required and then the dead hungry thing is still the same person with the same soul as before. I love Rodney. He helps Bones out when a body needs to disappear. Yep, go wild with your imagination there.
“You don't have body parts there do you?" my mother interrupted. "I don't want to open the fridge and find a head on the shelf"
Rodney laughed. "No Justina, it doesn't look like Jeffrey Dahmer's hideaway.”

“Brave words in a room full of pulseless creatures. Spade gave Don a disgusted glance while Rodney just licked his lips. No doubt he was mentally salting and peppering Don.”

p.s. You have to stop by JC's Book Haven for the coolest drawing of M from Warm Bodies.
