Prey: Book Two: The Jackal's Trick by John Jackson Miller
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
That is, Miller did a perfect job blending TOS/TNG and film Trek into a well paced story. Enough twists and turns to keep the action moving and unpredictable. And the story builds to the right kind of cliffhanger that I'm eager to get may hands on the conclusion.
With the massive legacy of Trek - from TV to Film to books - there is a lot to keep track of. I love the books, but there are so many that I have yet to read, and sometimes the current books assume you know more than I do - Miller (and I'll guess his editors) handle this well. I knew enough and the exposition covered the extras so well I never had a problem understanding the story.
The story moves well, and has plenty of settings (Titan, Enterprise, the Unsung, Qo'noS, and more) - this kept things interesting and complex. A very good Trek indeed!
