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!

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.

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!

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,

Format: Kindle Edition
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.

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.

I am not usually a fan of the horror/fantasy genre, but this book made me change my mind on that. I LOVED the book! I couldn't put it down--it was a good, fast-paced story. The writing makes the readers become invested in the characters and their destiny. I can't wait to see what happens to everyone. I am so looking forward the 2nd book!!

You're in for a great ride with this book. I love, love, love the character development. You'll feel a connection to each one and root for the good guys and hope for a tormented demise for the bad guys.
The book spans eons, from the time the world was created, to the Civil War up to the present time.
It has a good love story, a lot of tragedies and the images of demons destroying and decapitating humans will be burned in my brain for a long time.
But what sets this book apart are the characters. Each with their own story that melds into one epic adventure.
You'll feel the highs and the lows as Jennifer battles for humanity and beyond.

Sidney Stone, wrote an epic adventure story and I can't wait for the next chapters.

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!
