Secondary Characters Bloghop

My favourite secondary character has to be Finn, from Jennifer Roberson's Cheysuli Series, starting with Shapechanger. I'm not entirely sure if he counts as his story gets fleshed out throughout the first three books, but it's never fully told. To hell with it, I say.

I started off with a love/hate thing with Finn as he's a pushy bugger wanting what he wants as well as being the younger brother to doing-no-wrong Clan Leader Duncan. Finn also wants to get down with Alix, the main character, just as badly as his brother and the prince of Homana. Yeah, everyone wants Alix, just for different reasons: Prince, to get her away from the Cheysuli; Duncan, because of prophecy; Finn, because he wants to.

Too bad for him that she picks prophecy. I mean, I would've chosen Finn in a heartbeat. His reasons may not be as high as the others, but at least he's honest about it. Plus, he is bound to a wolf, Storr, and can take that form. Much better than his brother who is consigned to becoming a falcon.

    1. It is a very interesting story. I stumbled upon it in our local library years ago.

  4. I LOVED those books. I read them when I was really young, so I didn't completely understand the love triangle at the time, but subsequent readings were pretty awesome.

    I could totally see her going Finn's way, but I've always dreamed of flight, so the falcon seemed pretty awesome to me.

    1. And if she'd chosen Finn, we wouldn't have gotten Donal who could do both! ^_^

  5. Not familiar with the books but a pushy character can be fun.

    1. They can, especially if the Main Character is needing to choose. Of course, it can have the reverse effect, but that's even more fun.

  6. I've never read Jennifer Roberson, but Finn sounds like an interesting character. An honest jerk is better than a lying jerk. :)

    1. True. And, as a bonus, he's not as much of a jerk at the end. ^_^

    1. I know. Just when I think I've knocked a book off my TBR, I add two more.
