What’s a good hero without a trusty sidekick?
From the open road to deserted islands to Middle Earth, friendships inevitably form. Of course, most of the time, the plot’s weight shifts primarily on one character. This leaves the other to fill in the gaps, complementing the temperament and abilities of the hero — and maybe adding a laugh or two here and there.
Here are my top sidekicks in literature based on loyalty, friendship, and overall awesomeness. Click on the title of the book to purchase!
