Jennifer Ainsley: She lost her beloved mother and sister in a mysterious car crash when she was a child, the same night billionaire Jonathon Tait had a vision she was the one to wield the Sword of Jesus (Matthew 10:34 Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword) against the demons. Adopted by Jonathon and raised wiith his twins to love them like she did her sister, Jennifer knows nothing of her destiny until the night of her college graduation party. Also manipulated by Jonathon to fall for the Head of Tait Security Andrew Walker, the coming storm will engulf her and she may yet lose even more than she already has.

Jonathon Tait: 170 year old billionaire who in league with the demons, has become the richest, most powerful man in the world. The murder of his second love, plus the love of his children, begin to place Jonathon on the path of not redemption; but at least a way to save the two people he loves the most.

Mpordock: The leader of the Demons. A fallen Angel who also had forsaken the Underworld to wage a final battle against humanity. Disdainful of Lucifer and yet craving the acceptance of the God who cast Mordock out of Heaven, Mordock thinks that if he destroys humanity (like God himself almost did with The Flood) maybe God will recognize him and maybe Mordock can become holy again.

Andrew Walker: Like Jennifer, Andrew lost his family in a tragic accident and that shared past has given them a fierce, passionate love. Their initial lovemaking scene illustrates how much they are in love with each other and how much they would protect one another. But Andrew, one of the few living men to have killed a demon, is not an experienced demon fighter and may be over his head in the coming war.

Mike Davis: The government operative most skilled in killing demons, he is known throughout the world has having the greatest luck in remaining alive when so many other soldiers like him, including a former lover, have perished. Spying on Jennifer while also attempting to protect her, he falls in love with her but realizes this will always be unrequited. Jennifer will always be in love with Andrew which causes Mike to take terrible risks yet also give him an unwavering strength as he wants to do right by Jennifer.

Andrew and Sophia Tait: Jonathon’s twins who were an unexpected surprise birth. Jonathon loves them so much he betrays his alliance with the demons. As the conflict grows though, Jonathon and others begin to realize the twins may have an even greater destiny than Jennifer. And if Mordock finds that out, all could be lost.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "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."
- Steve O. Sim

- "Wonderful read from start to finish. This one will grab a hold and dare you to put it down. The book follows a family that has been beset by so much pain and loss over the course of centuries up into modern times. Is this family the answer to mankind's survival or is the world on the brink of a demon overtake? Stone spares no writing expense and delivers one gripping novel which weaves together themes of love, loss, strength, redemption, hope and courage. The author really has a gift of developing his characters and scenes that you can't help but feel part of the action and be taken on a personally enriching journey." - Nicole Dansby

- "Quick read. Enjoyed the thoughtfulness of the bigger picture concepts while the smaller actions of the characters and setting details kept me reading." - Mark Canigula

- "Pinot Noir, Xbox 360 Halo, Hiking, Decapitation, Devoured alive from the legs up.... this book has it all!" - Chris D. (Amazon)

About the Author

Author Sidney Stone
Author Sidney Stone
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 novel, Sidney also still tears up at the end of both Field of Dreams and An Officer and a Gentleman.
