Well, you're about to be really happy you found this, because you're about to discover the best Trek books made these days... and I don't mean that lightly; Trek novels are the best they've ever been right now. But this series is clearly the cream of the crop.
The series is:
Harbinger (David Mack)
Summon The Thunder (Dayton Ward & Kevin Dilmore)
Reap The Whirlwind (David Mack)
Open Secrets (Dayton Ward)
and this book here.
This is Trek without rules; Trek that will kill people, fire people, demote people, deeply change people... destroy whole ships or planets or solar systems... surprise you with every twist and turn. It's a Trek that features notable characters completely outside the Trek paradigm (archaeology officers, intelligence operatives, crews of ships that only hold 20 people, mercenaries, reporters, gangsters, you name it). And it's all encompassed in a story that wraps around the TOS mythology, providing alternate perspectives that blend the whole original series together and make the union substantially stronger as a result.
It's awesome. It's like if HBO re-imagined the original Star Trek.
Should you start with this book, though? No. Go buy Harbinger, and experience this ride from the beginning. You'll be glad you did.
Action, suspence, logic, intrigue...this novel has it all. The best ST book in a long time. Too bad Paramount has so mismanaged this franchise. This is an excellent story and book.
This is a series carried by its strong characters, and that trend continues here -- magnificently. I've been fascinated by the interplay between former intelligent officer T'Pyrnn and her journalistic adversary-turned-ally, Timothy Pennington, and it's done no better than here, where the two cooperate to spy on gangsters and Kingons in hopes to saving Vanguard. Perhaps the finest contributions of this book were the appearance of Gorkon -- a Klingon official whose political views will lead to the greatest peace in the galaxy and his own assassination -- and the reappearance of a Vanguard character thought dead. I'd hoped for for this character's return, and am eagerly looking forward to what becomes of the Vanguard crew in future books.
That being said, it was still a very good move forward. Some lingering minor plot lines were resolved, and they needed to be. I really like how Quinn's character has been developed as well as Pennington. It truly was difficult to put down this book despite some of the nagging annoyances of the story telling. It's definitely worth a Trek fan's time.

I found it to be a good story as it helps you get to the halfway part in the seriesPublished 11 months ago by JR
This is a great series, and Precipice so far lives up to its name. Most every page leaves you staring over a precipice of anxiety about

Must read, if you are a inline Trekie.
But you must first read Declasified first, for context...
Why, because! That's why....
