  1. Are the answers to number 14 right? Riley does not speak fluent Spanish. He kisses Andi after he convinces the outlaws that he’s one of them, and Riley would never kill a man.


    1. Everybody who has turned in a quiz so far has gotten this one right. But just so there is no doubt in anyone’s mind, I have revised the question to make sure it’s clear. 😉


    1. The Last Ride, page 138:
      If Riley sensed Andi’s displeasure, he didn’t show it. “I like ’em too, you know. My favorite is Ralph the Slasher.” He shoved his hands in his trouser pockets and relaxed against the porch post. “I’m pretty sure your favorite is The Indian Captive.”

      Oh, and the question asks Riley’s favorite dime novel.


  2. Oh! I had no idea that there was this contest! I was reading through the other character quizzes and I believe I would have gotten the others right, or maybe one question wrong on some of the other character quizzes, but I would’ve gotten all of Riley’s right. He’s my favorite character.
