Quickie Review: Fallen From Grace (Dark Passage Prequel) by MJ Putney

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Allarde, a gorgeous, wealthy noble has hidden his true nature. Discover his diary and witness his sudden fall from grace.
My Thoughts: Intriguing, but I felt like my understanding of what was going on would have benefited from a little more backstory.  While this is admittedly a very short story and there wasn't a lot of time for all sorts of crazy exposition, I was a bit confused as to why magic was so looked down upon by the nobility.

I did like the journal-style entries and the glimpses it gave us into the character of Allarde.  I thought the secondary characters were interesting.  I think the covers for books 1 and 2 are gorgeous.  I guess I wanted more.  More information.  More explanation.

All this wanting tells me that this story got me interested in the other books in the series.  Which is a good thing.
