Now Reading: The Somnambulist by Jonathan Barnes
Just Finished: Star Trek: Vanguard: Precipice by David Mack
Precipice comes dangerously close to feeling like a “filler episode.” The story covers the next year after the events of Open Secrets, during which Starfleet officer Bridy Mac joins formerly sleazy rogue Cervantes Quinn for an undercover mission to locate Shedai artifacts; and the reporter Tim Pennington joins the formerly comatose fugitive T’Prynn for months of patient space espionage. Not much is seen of Vanguard station or the Shedai, although the peculiar fate of Diego Reyes is revealed.
I just hope this book represents a relative lull in the otherwise great Vanguard arc and not a shift in direction. I guess we’ll have to wait for the next book to find out.
