A Drop of Night by Stefan Bachmann
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Disappointing. There's virtually no relationship between the kids (once the action gets going, that totally would have happened); there's virtually no explanation about why they might have been chosen in the beginning, while the real explanation is too little, too late; there's no real sense of what the Palais des Papillons looks like in either timeline. I could go on. Oh, and the ending? Abrupt and unsatisfying.
