#BestReadsOf2020 : Best sidekick

Happy Sunday!⁠ ⁠

Today in our #BestReadsOf2020 we are talking about sidekicks.⁠ ⁠

I think having a great sidekick adds so much fun to the story!

My favorite this year is Gallowglass from A Discovery of Witches.⁠

⁠ I listened to the audiobook and the narrator went for a Scottish accent that made me love him ever more!⁠ Throughout centuries we’ll watch over Diana and will be loyal to Matthew.⁠ ⁠ When I ended this trilogy my only wish was to have one more book about Gallowglass with him finding his HEA.⁠ ⁠


Here are some of my favorite quotes about him.

“I trust my wife’s judgement,” Matthew said firmly.
“That’s what Philippe says about Granny,” Gallowglass muttered under his breath. “Just before all hell breaks lose.”
― Deborah Harkness, Shadow of Night

“Gallowglass returned to Sporrengasse with two vampires and a pretzel.”⁠

“According to human accounts, Dracula lived on for centuries – he may still be living. Are you sure he’s really dead?’ I asked. ‘I watched Baldwin rip his head off and bury it thirty miles away from the rest of his body. He was really dead then, and he’s really dead now.’ Gallowglass looked at me reprovingly. ‘You should know better than to believe these human stories, Auntie. They’ve never got more than a speck of truth in them.”
― Deborah Harkness, Shadow of Night


Who is your favorite sidekick this year?
