The Inhuman Chronicles #1
First published March 2013
Second edition published November 2014
1) I’m sixteen
2) I’m an absolute slave to coffee
3) My mom and I just ran away from home
4) And oh yeah, my new neighbors—they’re vampires
Yeah, that last one’s kind of a surprise for me, too. I mean, vampires? That are real? This is real life, not fiction! And seriously, have you ever heard of a vampire who wears a bowtie and glasses? A werewolf who sits around reading books in trees? Sounds like I’m telling you a joke, right? Well, I’m not. It’s all real. And sadly, so are the Really Nasty Monsters who happen to be chasing after said neighbors. They’re bad news, they’re apparently pretty powerful, and guess what? Now they’re after me too.
Sounds like it’s going to be an interesting few days...
What readers are saying...
"I don’t normally read YA, but I picked this book up and found myself really enjoying it. The prose was clear and polished, and the narrator was a wisecracking, headstrong young lady….I found myself laughing out loud more than once…”
~Rachel A. Brune, author
"Caitlin has crafted a story line that is engrossing, definitely catches the attention, and left me wanting even more! With the hint of a love triangle to come as well..."
~Dominique Goodall, author
“…Shades and hints of so much untold history for each of the characters that I doubt Hensley can fit everything into ten books….Her characters are real, they have lives, issues, and depth. You WANT to get to know them, as much as you want to know what the heck is going on in their world…”
~Jiva Fang, author
“Family drama, danger, and maybe a budding romance.…I was really intrigued by the mythology Hensley has created for her supernatural characters. She's got her own little twist on werewolves, vampires, witches, and shapeshifters...”
~Christina Moore, author
“It was so easy to bond with these characters, and (Hensley’s) writing style makes you feel like you are right there with them…”
“I have read numerous books of this genre from many more famous authors. (Paranormal Legacy) would have to rank near the top of the heap. For only the second published work by this young aspiring writer, it was exceptional.”
"I found myself so involved in the book that I forgot to eat dinner, and I find myself slightly sunburnt from not wanting to stop reading long enough to just come inside..."
“Fun fact #1: Generally speaking, I’m not exactly in love with the paranormal genre. But then there’s Fun Fact #2, which is a bit hard to reconcile with Fun Fact #1: I’m a big fan of Paranormal Legacy. If you’ve read the book, though, I’m pretty confident that makes sense. Paranormal Legacy wasn’t just another paranormal book to me, and that mostly comes down to the characters. They made me laugh out loud—they’re flawed—they’re lovable—they’re frustrating—you never quite know what Haily’s going to do next. Basically, they’re real. And the plot doesn’t hurt, either—instead of focusing on paranormal stuff, the main obstacle comes from a very human situation, which allows the characters to be people instead of just stereotypical roles. It also lets the book be a book, instead of just another typical addition to the genre. And that, plus all the laughing I mentioned earlier, is how you can shrug off the entire paranormal genre, and still find a book called Paranormal Legacy wizard.
No pun intended.”
