"A brilliant conjuring act by one of the master illusionists of our time."
--Wired on The Prestige
"One of our most gifted writers."
--John Fowles on The Prestige
"Extraordinary--like a dazzling magic act!"
--Entertainment Weekly on The Prestige
"A dizzying show of a novel....Imagine Possession rewritten by Barbara Vine, or Robertson Davies at his most smoothly diabolical. A brilliantly constructed entertainment!"
--The Washington Post on The Prestige
"As ingenious as it is suspenseful."
--Newsday on The Prestige
"Nothing quite prepares you for the sinister complexity and imaginative flair of The Prestige . . . Magnificently eerie."
--Anthony Quinn, The Sunday Times
"Beautifully written . . . Two magicians vie with each other to create the perfect illusion: vanishing from one part of the stage and reappearing instantaneously in another. It's a story of utter fakery and scientific audacity. The pioneer of electrical power, Nikola Tesla, appears in a supporting role; to say more would reveal too much. Priest masters the merging of SF and mainstream, and The Prestige is his finest novel to date."
--New Scientist on The Prestige
"A taut, twisting, prize-winning story of two magicians and their fierce fin-de-siècle rivalry that taints successive generations of their respective families...An unexpectedly compelling fusion of weird science and legerdemain."
--Kirkus on The Prestige
"Remarkably akin to the style of the late Robertson Davies...Priest has brought it off with great imagination and skill."
--Publishers Weekly on The Prestige
"Hypnotic...The Prestige provides the satisfaction of an ambitious and well-told entertainment."
--San Francisco Chronicle
"The Prestige is in every way a marvelously scary entertainment with one of the creepiest final revelations in recent years. Don't miss the magic show!"
--Gahan Wilson, Realms of Fantasy
"Just as a magic act should be: filled with haunting marvels."
--Time Out London on The Prestige
