The time has come to face the truth. Dan Kelley and The Eagles, now family men with professions and plenty of responsibilities, put everything aside for one of their own.

Through this experience, they revisit characters of their childhood, and the Cornerstone of the ...more

I received this through first reads which is always so cool, so thank you so much for that!

Although the story takes place in the future, many of the conflicts we deal with today are evident then as well. The author provides in-depth insights into the behavior of the main character Dan. We feel for his childhood and anxious for a positive ending.

Thank you GoodReads for the book:)

I received Cornerstones from the author in a Goodreads give away and appreciated the signed copy. The book was easy to read and I finished it in a couple of days. Dystopian books are not my favorite genre but I found the plot easy to believe and kept me intrigued. The ending did seemed a little rushed and I would have liked to have learned more about the hidden fringe society.
