- Matthew 10:34
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 fast-paced 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.
The book is described as a gripping fantasy/horror novel grounded in the contemporary world. Jennifer Ainsley: The Final Demon War 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. The characters are extremely likable and engaging, and the author has successfully incorporated a great deal of humor into the book, despite its often grim and macabre themes. The plot clips along at a fast pace and is highly original; the action scenes are especially well written and engaging.

About the Author
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.

Reviewed by April Gilly for Readers' Favorite Jennifer Ainsley: The Final Demon War by Sidney Stone is about Jennifer Ainsley who is the Chosen One that can wield the Sword of Jesus, the only sure way to kill the demons waging war against humans. Mordock tells of how the demons came to hate humans and why they are waging war against the human race. Jonathon talks about love and redemption while working on turning the tables on the demons so that his soul can be saved; all the while adding more to Mordock's story and filling in more gaps about the who's, how's, and why's. Andrew and Jennifer tell their stories of loss and despair while they fall in love with each other and start to fight back against Mordock and his demon hordes. Other characters narrate for a bit and continue filling in gaps left by the others. Jennifer Ainsley: The Final Demon War by Sidney Stone is well written with a new twist on a plot that has already been done once or twice. Sidney Stone throws in a new religious aspect that made me wonder if maybe that is how things really are in the world. 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. I hope that Jennifer's story is continued in a second book as I would like to see how her story ends.
