Coffee Shop Talks - Favorite Secondary Characters

We've talked about favorite heroines and book boyfriends, 
but they wouldn't be complete without friends and family. 
Who are your favorite secondary characters?

I love the relationship (or lack of) between Cassie & Casanova. Instead of respecting her as Pythia and caring about her safety, he only views her as a nuisance and his life would be so much easier without her in it. I love reading his rude, sarcastic comments toward Cassie and his selfish, arrogant attitude is entertaining. He's a fun character and I'm so glad that he's still a part of the series after 6 installments.

Shelby is depressing, very bitter and pessimistic with a dark sense of humor and a unique fashion sense. With the way Crane writes this character it's hard not to laugh at her gloomy outlook on everything in life. Throughout the series, Shelby plays an important role and becomes one of Justine's closest friends. There were a lot of great secondary characters in this series, but Shelby was one of my favorites.


Volusian, a cursed soul enslaved by Eugenie Markham, was a complete bad ass. An evil little creature with black skin and red eyes, he loathed Eugenie and made sure she knew it. He had plans to kill her if he were ever released and he vocalized it often. It was comical in a dark, twisted kind of way. I looked forward to every scene with Volusian during this series and it wouldn't have been the same without him.

I really like Casanova too and some of Cassie's guards are pretty terrific too! I haven't been able to start the newest one yet. I was looking at my recent purchases yesterday to decide which one to start and it kept jumping up and saying "Me, Me, Me", but there are a few others that are ahead of it.

I love Finn from Jennifer Estep's Elemental Assassin series and Oberon (the dog) from Kevin Hearne's The Iron Druid Chronicles is really growing on me as well. I'm sad to say that I'm not familiar with any of your picks. Looks like I have some reading to do! ;)

Jenks from The Hollows series. That pixie is just so damn funny.

And I second Carmel with Finn from the Elemental Assassin series.

Warren and Kyle from the Mercy Thompson series are my favorites! They are just so fun to read.

Traci - The latest book was really good, but make sure you're in the mood for a big cliff hanger before you get started ;-)

Carmel - I've heard Hearne's series is really good. There are a couple of series that I like that have animals as secondary characters, like Tairen Soul & The Iron Fey.

Jennifer - I forgot about Jenks! I love him!

AquarianDancer - I've fallen behind on the Mercy Thompson series, but Warren & Kyle are good picks.
