Building on everything before he paces the tale like a Hollywood movie, building to a crescendo in the second half of the book that pays off big time. I absolutely loved Precipice - and any Trek fan would. Like with Reap the Whirlwind, his writing style is sleek and stylish... the way he writes the story you 'see' it all playing out in your head with massive setpieces, quiet character moments, cliffhangers and plenty of 'wow' moments. Impressive stuff!
The action was fun and had good pace, we found out a bit more back story, saw some more character lines blend together and saw a climactic finish.
All in all, another good addition to the Vanguard collection!

PRECIPICE has other surprises in store, including the not-dead-yet status of a character previously thought lost in space. It also features several secondary stories, including a determined effort by Councillor Gorkon--who we've seen on screen in "Star Trek VI" as Chancellor Gorkon--to find a path to peace; a new Ming Xiong discovery about artifacts associated with the Shedai; a dogged Starfleet criminal investigation that reveals ties between the Orions and the Klingons; and a new romance for JAG lawyer Rana Desai.
Nothing really grand happens in PRECIPICE, but that's OK. The novel is filled with enough action, intrigue, humor, and unexpected twists to make it an enjoyable read and a definite improvement on its tedious predecessor, OPEN SECRETS. It advances the Operation Vanguard story arc just a little, meaning that there are likely to be several more novels in the series, but few readers who've read this far into the series will be disappointed.
P.S. The VANGUARD authors have been dropping hints about the advent of the Organian Peace Treaty, which was forced on the Federation and the Klingons on Stardate 3198.4, shortly before the conclusion of PRECIPICE. While it's nice that the Trek gods thought to incorporate this important event into the VANGUARD story, they really don't do anything much with it, which is disappointing.
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.
