Sidekick Showcase [40] - Spitfire

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 fits 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

September Themes:

This week is Spitfire

My choice is Dani (MEGA) O'Malley
The Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning

Dani O'Malley Picture Created by Jaclyn Canada

Dani is the biggest spitfire I think that I've ever come across in a series. She is young at just 14 I believe when the series starts, she is extremely fast, has precognition, and will kill in a heartbeat. Not only that, but she has the foulest mouth I've seen on a character in a while and being such a young girl that's pretty wild. However, she is bad to the bone and will have your back if you've broken down her walls and actually gained her trust. I especially enjoyed her crush on Barrons and V'Lane.

The quotes are all from Iced which she is now the main character in, and I haven't actually read. I don't have my books with me right now, and that's all I could get.


“Ryodan doesn’t like Mac. He never has. She got between him and his best boy-bud. I give him a look. “I’ll tell you a secret, Ryodan. You mess with her, Barrons’ll kill you.” I drag a finger across my neck. “Just like that. You aren’t all that. Barrons’ll stomp your ass, hand’s down.”

“You’ll never be just anything. A tsunami can never be ‘just’ a wave.”
“Get off my chin.”
“I like that about you. Waves are banal. Tsunamis reshape the Earth. Under the right circumstances, even entire civilizations.”
I blink.
“You’re going to be one hell of a woman one day, Dani.”

“Life's a choice: you can live in black and white, or you can live in colour. I'll take every shade of the rainbow and the gazillion in between!”

  1. Dani is the star this week! I love the drawing. This is another staple series I haven't read yet. I like that she's just a kid and she's so tough. Have a great weekend, Jaclyn!

  2. This is actually almost a little bit freaky! Guess who my spitfire is, Jaclyn :D Yup, it's Dani O'Malley!

    I love the drawing, even if she looks a little bit different in my mind.

    Have a great weekend, Jaclyn *hugs*

  3. Oh yeah, Dani is a spitfire. I can't remember, was ICED her book? I still need to read it. Have you?

  4. I love this week's theme! I wish I had Dani's ability to practically fly around on her feet, not to mention the metabolism that allows her to eat as many candy bars as she wants! :D

  5. OMG!!! **laughing hysterically** Apparently, Dani is THE consummate spitfire as we ALL chose her! LOL *wiping tears from my eyes from laughing*

    I love your picture of Dani, Jaclyn. It's amazing!

    I did actually think of Eve from Morganville Vampires series...and Jesse Hauptman from Mercy Thompson...but really, Dani was the best choice! Obviously!! LOL

  6. Yes, ICED was Dani's book, and it is awesome :)

  7. I think it's so amazing that we all chose her! That just can't be a coincidence :D

  8. She really is the best in this case, though the others you listed are good as well! I think it's pretty great LOL.

  9. Right! All that sugary goodness and still the slim figure. I would really like to move as she does too. Thank you so much for stopping by!

  10. I haven't read ICED yet, but I'm looking forward to reading it soon. That one is her spinoff and Ryoden and Christian are supposed to be in it as well.

  11. LOL I think it's excellent. She truly is THE spitfire :D I've having a nice weekend - I hope you are having a great one!

  12. Yep, I hope you read this one someday as well. There's a lot going on in this series and I think you would enjoy it. Thank you so much for stopping by :D

  13. This character seems lik fun and I love the illustration!

  14. She really is great :D Thank you so much!!

  15. It's so funny we chose her, and as soon as I saw 'spitfire' Dani popped into my ehad :)

  16. This is a series and author I've not tried yet. But So many have loved. I do need to get day. :) Thank you!
