Book Description

"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword"
- Matthew 10:34

Jennifer Ainsley: The First Demon War is a gripping, fast-paced fantasy/horror New Adult novel grounded in the contemporary world. The book deftly tackles issues of greed, humanity’s neglect for its weakest members, the race for power among individuals and nations,and the ability of love and courage to transcend personal weaknesses.

Jonathon Tait, whose demon-enhanced 170 year old life has helped make him the richest man in the world, secretly renounces his alliance with the demons in order to save his twins and redeem himself in the eyes of the two women he loved and lost. Jonathon, along with others, has visions that Jennifer Ainsley, his beautiful adopted daughter, may be the key to humanity's survival and works with a secret underground movement to fight back against both the demons and the human leadership that is guiding our civilization towards total destruction.

Can Jennifer fulfill her destiny even as the planet hurtles towards its destruction? Is she mankind's only hope and can Jennifer save everyone that she loves or, after enduring the loss of her own family as a child, is she destined for even greater sorrow?

Jennifer Ainsley: The Final Demon War is a compelling tale that combines horror and fantasy to tell a story of love, loss, sacrifice and redemption. This violent yet spiritual and romantic novel is the start of a planned trilogy that will take the reader from the beginning of time, to the end of humanity and hopefully to its rebirth and resurrection.


Editorial Reviews

Review

4 out of 5 stars "Jennifer Ainsley: The Final Demon War is an enjoyable read and
at times is very hard to put down. Details and scenery are described in enough
detail that I could see it in my mind's eye, even the slightly graphic ones that
involved demons slaughtering humans." - Readers Favorite    

From the Author

Jennifer Ainsley on its surface is just another Fantasy Horror novel.  There are monsters, violence, a bit of sex and there is a torn young woman who does not quite understand her destiny as the one who could be our Savior. There are spiritual elements, much suspense, great deep sadness, yet also heroism and much humor.  But underneath all of this lies love and loss; the main themes of this book.  Every main character loves someone, and they lose someone too during the story.  It explains the motivation for all the characters including my great villain Mordock.

It is a book to entertain but also a book to make you think.  I know you will enjoy it!

I must confess, I am typically not a fan of fantasy genre books. I do like horror novels (King, Koontz, etc.) so I figured why not give it a whirl? As a voracious reader, I want books to be well written and entertaining. This book delivered. Upon reflection, what got me hooked was that the author presented a premise that required me to rethink my preconceived notions about evil, demons and the nature of heaven and hell. That was a daring approach for the author. He pulled it off. For example, Satan came off as a rather pathetic character! It was interesting to me that the demon characters were complex and had unique personalities. They were far more developed than the typical “demons are bad” that have become so familiar in this genre.

As to the human characters, they also were well developed and very interesting. It made me contemplate about how we “humans” rationalize out behavior to others and ourselves. Can one do “evil” things but be worthy of redemption? Can our pursuit of love corrupt our souls? How would you define a hero?

Bottom line is not only was I entertained while reading the book, but I find myself thinking about it weeks after I have put it down. Bravo!

Among the modern crop of good vs. evil hero tales, Jennifer Ainsley: The Final Demon War is a solid opening act in a story I hope to see evolve into a larger tale of destiny, purpose, doubt, anger, betrayal, love and redemption. At the end of what is planned as first of a trilogy, all the necessary components are successfully introduced: a hidden demonic world that has been manipulating events and plotting revenge for centuries, their Faustian human partner who plays all sides preparing for betrayal or justice or both, an unwitting hero drawn into a war she knew nothing about, and mysterious young twins touched with magic and a bit of divinity. As the fiery, carnivorous and bloody Demon War unfolds, each character is tested to the edge of life and death and beyond. Many questions are raised and left unanswered begging to know what next for humanity?

The novel is well-plotted around developed characters that have expertly interwoven back stories. The introduction to each character lays a foundation for the events that ultimately lead to the start of war with the demon horde. Jonathan Tait is the strongest character with origins dating back to the Civil War. I felt Jennifer Ainsley, Jonathan's adopted daughter and titular character of the book, was less developed. She seemed mostly confused by all the happenings as the various men in her life attempted to explain her destiny to her. As a feminist warrior archetype, she will hopefully grow into her roll. Along with the historical setting of the Civil War, I enjoyed how recent history like the war in Iraq was incorporated and made central to the plot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch out this book is an awesome ride! January 25, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a huge fan of Koontz, King and Brown and Sidney Stone's new book is up there with the reads from those authors. After two chapters I was hooked and couldn't put it down for hours at a time. The characters run the gambit from monsters to heroes and several a bit of both. Anticipating the writing and release of a sequel....that door is open! Great job Sidney Stone. I recommend this to anyone who likes any of the K K B books,

Quick read. Enjoyed the thoughtfulness of the bigger picture concepts while the smaller actions of the characters and setting details kept me reading. The ending had a great set up for the next book, who will triumph Jennifer Ainsley or Mordoc? Can not wait to read it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great! April 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book from a Goodreads Giveaway. At first I thought it started out kind of slow, but as I kept reading I understood the reasons for all the explaining. Jonathan Tait sold his soul to a demon in order to have wealth and power and the love of his life. He received the wealth and power, but his love was sadly not to be his. Later on he found another love that was not to be his either. The demon Murdock killed her, but left his children. With his children he knew that he needed to change things with this realization and visions of the future he adopted a young girl whose mother worked and later was killed in an accident at his estate. The young girl become a sister/mother figure for his children. She was also in the visions he was seeing as a protector of his children. Jennifer the young girl grew into a beautiful young woman and was taught how to protect his children even though she didn't know what was happening at the time. Jennifer did indeed protect his children and became the person in his visions. Very excited to see what happens next in Jennifer and the children's lives.

I have to say.... I really enjoyed this novel from first time Author Sidney Stone.. Very interesting mix is fantasy and horror set in modern times. Has humor, religion, history, current events, etc, all crammed into a fast paced story about the end of days. You'll be reading about a pinot noir in one paragraph followed by a decapitated head flying thru the air in the next. Characters come to life with first person chapters that let you get into the characters minds along with third person chapters giving you a broader perspective on the events unfolding. This isn't some last page until the climax happens book either. The battle between humans and demons starts about midway and never lets up making the book hard to put down yet still sets up a cliffhanger for the saga to continue. Left me satisfied and ready for more!! I can't wait for the next book in the series!

More About the Author

Sidney Stone is a hiker, deer whisperer and non-pretentious wine connoisseur. An addicted reviewer on Yelp, he is also creator of affordable housing (although technically he is homeless part-time), thinks The Replacements are the best band of the Eighties and loves to boost his LinkedIn count with people he doesn't know.

He lives in both Northern and Southern California while constantly traveling to Orange County to visit his son, who can now beat his father at ping pong and chess rather easily (and is charmingly arrogant while doing it). A graduate of UC Irvine and Pepperdine University, Sidney wishes he chose at least one university to attend that had a college football team to root for.

The first scene Sidney thought of for Jennifer Ainsley: The Final Demon War included a rather large massacre (take that for what it is worth). However, inspired by the works of Stephen King, Dean Koontz and Clive Barker; the book's violence is offset by dark humor and deep human emotion just like in real life where Sidney's darkness is offset by creatively placed sarcasm and an overwrought romanticism. For example, while Jennifer Ainsley: The Final Demon War is a Fantasy-Horror novel, Sidney also still tears up at the end of both Field of Dreams and An Officer and a Gentleman.
