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 theirs throughout the week as well
This week's challenge is Party Animal. I wandered through my books on Goodreads until one person/neurotic vampire came to mind. Peter from Richelle Mead's Succubus books was turned at 40, so he's always going to have a receding hair line, wrinkles, and the body he had his last breath. And he is not cool with that. So combine all that with a male vampire version of Martha Stuart. Peter loves to throw parties. He lives (er, sort of) for special occasions. The holidays turn him into a hot mess! I wish so bad Mead would do a spin off of this series. I want more Carter, Roman, and the vamp boys Peter and Cody.
"I ended up being only about fifteen minutes late for my friend Peter’s shindig. He answered his door before I could even knock. Taking in his billowing white hat and Kiss the Cook apron, I said, “I’m sorry. No one told me Iron Chef was being filmed here tonight.” “You’re late,” he chided, waving a wooden spoon in the air."

"There had always been an unspoken mystery between Peter and me concerning which of us was the oldest of the mortals-turned-immortals in our little circle. Neither of us would openly admit our age, so we’d never really determined who had the most centuries. One night, after a bottle of tequila, we’d started playing a “Do you remember when…” sort of game. We’d only gotten back as far as the Industrial Revolution before passing out."
