This book is good, light reading with likeable characters, fast moving action and lots of witty humor. It fits the Blaylock model of writing with its realistic setting sprinkled with fantastical elements. I sense a new series with Calvin and the Knights on the horizon, as I felt there was remaining stories to be told. More description on the Knights would have been nice, but if this becomes a series, the future books could be used for that. Overall, it's nice to have new James Blaylock novel after almost nine years of not having one. If you want an enjoyable book that's not too deep and easy to read, pick up Knights of the Cornerstone.
--W.D. Gagliani, author of Wolf's Edge
I felt that the book could have used some more history on the Knights, but maybe that is being saved for another book. I could also see Calvin Bryson, an unassuming hero, being a central character in future series.
Overall, I found the book to be very entertaining, but I know part of that is because I'm very familiar with the area where the story mainly takes place. Though without that level of intimacy, I still believe the story stands on its own.
