There are a lot of characters but I'm not really sure they are much different from each other, well, other than in their physical descriptions. So similar in fact that there are numerous occasions where the author switched from one character's point of view to another's and it'll take you a sentence or two to even notice.
It's not really science fiction, though it contains lots of fictional science... well, at least we should hope it's fictional science. It's sorta like "James Bond (divided into 5) takes on the Monster (and the Man behind it)" It's entertaining and fast and you won't have to think too much, though there is some conspiracy-theory stuff going on as well...
I see there are other books in this series but... I don't know that they are very high up on my to-read list. If they were cheap and I was bored, I'd listen to another but otherwise, I'd spend my time elsewhere.
The narration is okay. And, in case you're looking for some similar books, you could try The Artifact (Astre) and Relic (Preston/Child).
