Top 10 supernatural families

Jennifer Lynn Barnes has been, in turn, a competitive cheerleader, a volleyball player, a dancer, a debutante, a primate cognition researcher, a teen model, a comic book geek, and a lemur aficionado. She graduated from Yale University with a degree in cognitive science and used her research to imagine the werewolf world in her first novel, Raised by Wolves.

For the Guardian, Barnes named her top ten supernatural families.

One family on her list:
The Stackhouses (The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris)

The Stackhouse family has their share of (figurative) skeletons in the closet – supernatural relatives, illicit affairs and everyday trauma and tragedy – but at the end of the day there's nothing Sookie wouldn't do for her brother, Jason, or the cousins (human or not) that just keep crawling out of the woodwork.
