Tell Me Something Tuesday - Favorite Sidekicks

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a fun weekly meme hosted by Cambria @ CambriaHebert.com.
Each week there will be a new question to answer and share.  This is a great way for bloggers to get to know one another.

This week's question:

Who are your favorite sidekicks in a book? (you know the main character’s BFF)

This one's a tough one.  I honestly cannot recall many sidekicks in the books I have read lately.  

There is one odd sidekick that stands out, now that I think about it:

Xerxes - the walking stick in The Rock of Ivanore.  
He was given to Marcus to guide him through his quest.  He would "come to life" when he needed him, but in the end, Marcus had to figure things out for himself!  He was quite an unusual character - and actually my favorite character in the book.

  1. Wow, what a unique sounding side kick! He sounds wonderful and so does this book with shamefully I haven't heard of until now. Thank you so much for being part of TMST and for telling me about this great book! ;)

  2. I've never heard of this, but that sounds like a great sidekick :)

  3. The walking stick...I had to re-read that to make sure I wasn't seeing it wrong. :P Never heard of the book, but Xerxes sounds great. one hell of a side kick. :)

  4. A walking stick, now that is new one. Sounds lots of fun, it certainly is creative.
