'[A] well-paced, evocative, and adventurous historical novel...' -- Publishers Weekly
'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
'In her historical fiction debut, Macallister... has created a captivating world of enchantment and mystery that readers will be loath to leave.' -- Library Journal
'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 intense character development, spot-on historical references, and page-turning action.'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
'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
