Leapfrog Press continues to bring it! They are very quickly rising to the top of my indie/small press list of favorites, and it's all based on the consistent, quality literature they have been releasing.

When they created this mission statement - "... to search out, publish, and aggressively market books that tell a strong story. What we promise is writing that expands our webs of connection with other humans and the natural
This was a difficult book to read. Not because it wasn't well written, or intriguing but because it was so violent. It was a real brain twister to follow the story, the vengeance/revenge of one man against another ad nauseam.

I kept with it, expecting a pay off in the end. At that point I was disappointed. This intense dramatic story had a crap ending. That's all I
have to say.
I usually enjoy these "ship in a bottle" type of storylines, but this one was just OK. Hull Zero Three was a better one from recent years. Good writer though. Definitely reaches for, and partially obtains, a more literary feel to his writing than most genre writers. Joyce came to mind - high praise indeed.

The arithmetic mean of my Goodreads reviews to date is 3.02.
