'A wonderfully plotted, suspenseful, compelling, beautiful, frightening, evocative and above all, magical story which marks Macallister as an exciting new voice in historical fiction.' -- John Cleal 'A wonderfully dark and intriguing historical thriller. The Amazing Arden is a fabulous heroine who keeps us guessing until the curtain falls. I loved it!' -- Hazel Gaynor, New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Came Home 'Readers may well compare Greer's novel to The Night Circus, as it revolves around the mysterious world of magic and illusions... the story is spun like a bard's hypnotic tale. By the end, the reader is left wondering what is real and what is illusion.' -- RT Book Reviews 'Greer Macallister's novel will surely capture the imagination of all readers waiting impatiently for the next Water for Elephants... intense character development, spot-on historical references, and page-turning action.' -- Nancy Simpson-Brice 'In her historical fiction debut, Macallister... has created a captivating world of enchantment and mystery that readers will be loath to leave.' -- Library Journal 'A little taste of The Night Circus, and little salt of Water for Elephants, The Magician's Lie by Greer Macallister is a wonderful combination of magic, vaudeville and the drama of a secret life.' -- Annie Philbrick '[A] well-paced, evocative, and adventurous historical novel...' -- Publishers Weekly 'Like her heroine the Amazing Arden, Greer Macallister has created a blend of magic that is sure to delight her audience. The Magician's Lie is a rich tale of heart-stopping plot turns, glittering prose, and a cast of complex, compelling characters. Reader beware: those who enter Macallister's delicious world of magic and mystery won't wish to leave!' -- Allison Pataki, New York Times bestselling author of The Traitor's Wife 'A suspenseful and well-researched tale of magic, secrets and betrayal that will keep you guessing until the end.' -- J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author of The Engagements and Maine 'The Magician's Lie is riveting, compelling, beautiful, frightening, evocative and above all magical.

Rose 'Greer Macallister handles the reader with the command and brilliance of a world class ringmaster. The Magician's Lie is a mesmerizing novel of illusion, secrets, and suspense. Bravo!' -- Erika Robuck, author of Call Me Zelda and Fallen Beauty 'Twisted together with magic, a drenching touch of evil, betrayal, love, and wonderful storytelling will make this a tale you won't soon forget. Is her story real, or a magician's lie?' -- Becky Milner 'In The Magician's Lie, Greer Macallister has created a rich tapestry of mystery, magic, and lost love. The novel drew me in with its lush details and edge-of-your-seat plot. The tale of the tragic Amazing Arden, a female magician, will have you questioning how the truth of a tale can be different than the material facts, and how what you feel can be stronger than the soundest logic.' -- Margaret Dilloway, author of How to Be an American Housewife and The Care and Handling of Roses with Thorns
