Review:

"Extraordinary--like a dazzling magic act!"

"One of our most gifted writers." -- John Fowles

"Just as a magic act should be: filled with haunting marvels."

"Hypnotic..."The Prestige" provides the satisfaction of an ambitious and well-told entertainment."

"A taut, twisting, prize-winning story . . . . An unexpectedly compelling fusion of weird science and legerdemain."
"Beautifully written . . . . Priest masters the merging of SF and mainstream, and The Prestige is his finest novel to date."

"Remarkably akin to the style of the late Robertson Davies...Priest has brought it off with great imagination and skill."
"A dizzying show of a novel . . . . Imagine "Possession" rewritten by Barbara Vine . . . . A brilliantly constructed entertainment!"""

." . . 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"

," . . a  marvelously scary entertainment with one of the creepiest final revelations in recent years. Don't miss the magic show!"
