Except for a slow beginning - lots of time spent with characters hovering over dead bodies - the story is great. Good suspense, scary (& sort of plausible) idea.
The bad guys are sooo bad, and the good are over the top good, but the story and plot are okay. It might have been a better book without the hero being so pro-Marine Corps - if you're a gungy Marine - you'll enjoy it.
If you're looking for a series to fuel your sci-fi addiction, pick Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time. This is book #4, and it's as good as #1,2 & 3 - I recommend reading the books first - then going back & listening to them - or listen to #1, read #2, listen to #3 - the narrators are among the very best - you'll be hooked!
