I’m going to go with Caleb, from Half-Blood, as my favorite secondary character, mainly because I knew him better than I do other characters from different books.
I love Caleb. He’s the kind of guy every girl needs as a best friend. And because I’m a fan of bullet points, I’m going to use them to list the ways Caleb is awesome.
1. He’s not too sensitive
He doesn’t get upset if you don’t call him when you said you would or didn’t tell him about the guy you kissed. Caleb would probably actually prefer that you didn’t call him and tell him about the guy you kissed.
2. He’s amused by random acts of cursing or hitting
Caleb has a mouth on him. There is no four letter word you could string together that’s going to embarrass him.
3. He’ll never borrow your clothes and not return them.
He’s a dude. He’s not going to wear your favorite shirt. Enough said.
4. He’ll always, ALWAYS be there for you
Even if you freak out on him, he’s going to be there for you.Caleb will put himself in danger to protect his friends, and even in the craziest, sickest situations, he’ll crack a joke.
5. He will tell you will you’re being stupid.
If you’re about to do something really dumb or have already done something idiotic, he’ll tell you. That’s an invaluable trait, I believe.
Cons of a BFF relationship with Caleb?
1. Do NOT ever let him clothing shop for you
If Caleb ever offers to go buy some clothes for you—refuse. Or you may just end up looking like an exotic dancer about to hit the stage.
Caleb is probably one of my favorite characters to write. He’s funny, charming and I think you will love him just as much as I do. Thanks for having me!
One lucky winner will receive the following, plus swag:
The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden.Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.
For three years, Alexandria has lived among mortals—pretending to be like them and trying to forget the duty she'd been trained to fulfill as a child of a mortal and a demigod. At seventeen, she's pretty much accepted that she's a freak by mortal standards... and that she'll never be prepared for that duty.
According to her mother, that’s a good thing.
But as every descendant of the gods knows, Fate has a way of rearing her ugly head. A horrifying attack forces Alex to flee Miami and try to find her way back to the very place her mother had warned her she should never return—the Covenant. Every step that brings her closer to safety is one more step toward death… because she's being hunted by the very creatures she'd once trained to kill.
The daimons have found her.
