EXCITING NEWS! HERALD will be available on Amazon on June 22, 2019!



"Herald is a beautifully written fantasy with original story-telling and memorable characters. It is imaginative, descriptive and addictively page-turning!" 

                                                                                                                                                   Sonia Faruqi 

                                                  Bestselling author of The Oyster Thief and Project Animal Farm

"...guys. Let me tell you. I read the book in one day, I couldn't put it down. I got nothing done and that's okay because this book is amazing. The characters that are brought to life, the way the words of this story flow will keep you turning pages until the very end.Don't miss out on losing yourself inside the world of archangels and vessels. Herald is a one of a kind fantasy with a little love thrown in! I couldn't get enough. Now I need book 2 like..yesterday."  

                                                                                              Chandler Parris Lambert, Savannah, TN 

"...let me tell you, it is amazing. I literally couldn’t put it down, I actually read it while we ate dinner and then stayed up until 2 in the morning to finish it.  It was THAT good. The characters and the entire storyline are so all-consuming, that you will not want to stop reading until it is over.  This is not your ordinary YA fantasy, it is so much better.  You will fall in love with the characters and this new world that J. Edwards Stone has built. It is truly breathtaking. I can’t wait for Book 2!!!" 

                                                                                                              Mindy Kirkland, Vancouver, BC 

"This novel was well thought out and very well written novel. The scenes are so well described, that I  feel like I am  being transported into a different universe.   I got attached to the main character and follow her through her own personal growth and in her relationships with the different characters. The story flows very well and the ideas are very clear. Most important once I started reading it I did not want to stop till I reach the end. The ending was very well executed, and it opens the door for the next novel.This novel is the first of a series and i cannot wait to read the rest. It's a huge 5 stars!"

                                                                                           Stephanie Viveiros Amaral, Montreal, QB 

"J. Edwards Stone brings to life Herald, a new modern approach to the traditional apocalypse mythology. Her novel features Larin, a young woman with a modern take on romance and female survivorship. Fans of paranormal romance rejoice. Herald, which is the first of a series, is due to be released this summer. It has it all—angels, romance, friendship, betrayal, and great world building. Sure to appeal to readers from a variety of backgrounds, Herald is not to be missed."

About J. Edwards Stone


J. Edwards Stone ("Jules" to her friends), is a 30-something year old lawyer from Toronto, Ontario. In a past life, she was a classically trained pianist with a penchant for fine wines (okay, maybe she still enjoys the wine on occasion). These days, a couple of very active 3 and 6 year old kids keep Jules a busy gal as she helps them to flex their creative-muscles through art and music. She most enjoys concocting playful tales with them, and hopes to one day see them engage in a passion for storytelling that rivals her own. Jules is the author of two upcoming YA/NA Fantasy series: Children of Fate and A War of Black Feathers. She's also dabbled with Children's books.
