Review of Daughter of Mystery

Dear publisher: this is My Sort Of Thing. Where do I sign up for MORE OF THIS SORT OF THING?

Review of The Mystic Marriage

[Antuniet's] story easily captures the reader’s interest, but nearly equal time is given to the characters from Daughter of Mystery, the first book in the series….

Review of The Mystic Marriage

Jones has written an excellent, quiet novel about intellectual women, compelling in its intimacy and personal scale without ever being claustrophobic. The Mystic Marriage has the confidence to take its time. Its measured pace won’t be for everyone, but for me? It’s really very nearly perfect.

a coming-of-age...and a love story that explores power and privilege between individuals.

Review of The Mystic Marriage

Heather Rose Jones is a superior author. Her world building is brilliant and her characters are imperfect, real and so different from each other. It is a treat to read her work because you will never see formula characters or predictable plot points.

Review of Daughter of Mystery

This is a must-read for anyone looking for a fantasy novel. It is well worth it for lesbian fantasy seekers or who those who love a good, complex read without knowing what will come next.

Jones has done a wonderful job in creating the world of Alpennia.

Review of Daughter of Mystery

Not every fantasy is a wild ride with sword fights, sorcerers and dragons. Daughter of Mystery is a different and very rewarding read indeed. It starts out so real that I first thought I had started a historical novel set in the 18th century in the Alpine region of Europe. And when Heather Rose Jones begins - nearly imperceptibly - to bend reality it took me a minute or two to realize that she now had led the reader into the realm of fantasy. Well done! Brava!

Ms. Jones’ well built world is populated with a wonderful cast of believable characters.

Heather Rose Jones writes masterfully. Her style is at the same time beautiful and easy to read, delightful and commanding of attention.
