Description and Biographies

Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award and the World Fantasy Award

     Hugh Jackman, Michael Caine, Christian Bale and David Bowie starred in the latest movie adaptation of The Prestige.
     The Prestige is one of Priest’s most acclaimed novels, being winner of both the World Fantasy Award and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction.
     In 1878, two young stage magicians clash in the dark during the course of a fraudulent séance. From this moment on, their lives become webs of deceit and revelation as they vie to outwit and expose each other. Their rivalry will take them to the peaks of their careers—but with terrible consequences.
     In the course of pursuing each other’s ruin, they will deploy all the deception their magician’s craft can command, the highest misdirection and the darkest science. Blood will be spilled, but it will not be enough. In the end, their legacy will pass on for generations to descendants who must, for their sanity’s sake, untangle their puzzle.

     AudioFile: "Priest’s remarkable novel has been produced as an audiobook every bit as remarkable....Hearing Vance mellifluously pronounce words like ‘prestidigitator’ as if they were part of his normal speech makes the book worth the time, but there is so much more....Vance expertly portrays these two men as their lives (and their tricks) are slowly revealed."
     SFFAudio.com:
"It’s difficult to say how long it’s been since I’ve been so enthralled with an audiobook.... performance was stellar. Because of his subtle care, the surprises of the novel were enhanced....The result is an intricate web that is slowly unraveled throughout the book. It’s an audiobook that merits a second listen."
