Secondary Characters that Stole the Show
Wyatt Enslow: Besides being my favorite cyberpunk science fiction book, Insignia has a cast of characters as dynamic as Harry Potter. It was hard choosing just one, but I really connected the most to Wyatt. She was geeky and smart and a little introverted. She wasn't socially aware -- just like Hermonie, and she had a tough time making friends. I rooted for her the whole time.
Daniel Dyer: I liked Mara's brother, Daniel, in the first book, but it wasn't until Evolution that I began to love him. His banter with Mara was funnier than her quips with Noah, and he proved to be a character that stole SO many moments.
Vera and Dan: Have you read this? No? Then you need to! From the adorableness of Logan's sister Vera to the hilarity of his best friend, Dan. The secondary cast rocks! I mean, Dan makes every bad situation better. That's what friends are for.
Addie and Finn: Oh gosh, this is a clear case of the secondary characters proving to shine so bright (corny, I know, but it's true!) Addie and Finn, sister and brother, are Parker's love interest and then best friend. Finn was so comedic, and Addie was just ten kinds of amazing.
Nick and Gabriel Merrick: Is this cheating? The Merrick brothers were so awesome, that they each subsequently have their own book. Nick and Gabriel proved to be the strong force in Storm, taking away the limelight from their little brother Chris.
Eve and Michael: After 15 books, this series has to have a good cast in order to stay interesting. I keep up with the series because of everyone in Morganville, including punk Eve and Michael Glass. The vampires that appear throughout the series aren't too bad either.
Lissa and Christian. Seriously love them. I grew more attached to those two than Rose and Dimitri -- and that couple is one of my all-time favorites, so Lissa and Christian are super smexy.
Fred and George Weasley: Of course this made the list! I chose Order of the Phoenix because this is my favorite one. It's the start of Harry Potter turning more dark and mature. From children to young adults ;) This is also when Fred and George graduate. I had such a connection to them as a kid -- mostly because I'm a twin too. Let's just saw I bawled at the outcome of their story in the final book.
Ash and Puck: This may be cheating again. Oh well, it's on here. The Lost Prince features Ash and Puck as secondary characters -- but they had their own series with The Iron Fey. And my heart fluttered every time they appeared. So. Much. Love.
Daphne: I like her more than Gwen. She goes from mean girl Valkyrie to a friend you would want by your side during any tough situation. Her journey in this novel was as striking as Gwen's tribulations.
