This is a day I am excited for. Let me know your favorite secondary characters in a novel. What best friends, villains maybe, or other minor characters have stood out to you? Sometimes they can steal the show from the leads.
Mine are, without a doubt, Mik and Zuzana from Daughter of Smoke and Bone! Zuzana is so sassy and wonderful. The descriptions of her are vivid and she seems to leap off the page. I loved her being a life-sized marionette. Not to mention you cheer on her love story with violinist Mik so much that they ended up getting their own novella in Night of Cake and Puppets, which is soon to be in print and illustrated.
