Publisher's Summary

Calvin Bryson has hidden himself away from the world, losing himself in his work and his collection of rare and quirky books. He never meant to let so much time go by without visiting his aunt and uncle in the tiny town of New Cyprus, California. When he gets there, he'll discover the town's strange secrets and a mysterious group dedicated to preserving and protecting holy relics - a modern-day incarnation of the legendary Knights Templar.

Critic Reviews

"Blaylock's contemporary fantasy thriller features an intriguing and convincing reluctant hero, amiable cartoonist Calvin Bryson... The plot line begins to sound familiar when Bryson falls for a childhood friend, but as the Knights and their enemies battle for control of the veil, Blaylock... bolsters the predictable climax with solid prose, summing to an enjoyable read." (Publishers Weekly)

Blaylock at his best

What did you love best about The Knights of the Cornerstone?

Blaylock has the singular ability to capture the character of off-the-beaten path regions. In this case California's eastern Mojave. For any fan of Californiana, Route 66 roadtripping, Crusade era Christian legend, small press publications and the like, this work will ring your bell.

What other book might you compare The Knights of the Cornerstone to and why?

I'd place this work just behind Blaylock's The Last Coin in this amalgamated genre.
