Summary

Deep below a desolate Utah mountain lies the largest platinum deposit ever discovered. A billion-dollar find, it waits for any company that can drill a world's record, three-mile-deep mine shaft. EarthCore is the company with the technology, the resources, and the guts to go after the mother lode. Young executive Connell Kirkland is the company's driving force, pushing himself and those around him to uncover the massive treasure. But at three miles below the surface, where the rocks are so hot they burn bare skin, something has been waiting for centuries. Waiting...and guarding. Kirkland and EarthCore are about to find out first-hand why this treasure has never been unearthed.

Well worth the wait

Any additional comments?

I've been waiting for this for so long and was worried that I'd overhyped it to myself. But no, not at all! This is one of those stories when I found myself parked in the drive listening to the end of a chapter and wondering whether I could listen to another before stopping for the night. It also made me late for work. Loved the storyline, loved the characters and the ending. Hoping for a sequel.

Go Scott

What did you like most about Earthcore?

Easy flowing story, interesting characters, nice dark sci-fi. Have about 4 hrs left... always enjoy switching on the mp3 and seeing what's around the corner.

Easy listen. Imaginative.

An imaginative journey. Cringily cheesy dialogue in places. Certainly not the best book I've ever read but kept me entertained for 20 hours.

Lovable horror and action novel

I have followed the author for years and Earthcore is one of my favourite books. it contains solid science married with outrageous yet possible innovations PLUS a possibility of other life forms. I love Scott's work and so am very delighted by this book. it is very tasty.

Awesome Book. Well written and very creative!

This book was very hard to stop once I started. I really enjoyed everything about it. I like how it's a mystery science fiction book and seems to be poised for a series. The characters are very well developed and each have true motivations. I like the way Sigler takes the time tell the story. He really doesn't rush anything. He is clearly a very creative person with a big imagination. I can also tell he spent time learning about the mining industry. What would a sci-fi book be these days without cool technology and of course guns? He delivers on the tech side and gives us some nice action scenes. The Kool suits are badass. I wouldn't have minded him expanding the gun/black ops aspect but it seems that will be coming in the next book if there is one. Overall I highly recommend the book and really look forward to the next one.

Now for Ray Porter. He is the best narrator on audible right now. I enjoy listening to books and for me the narrator is a big factor for the books I choose. Ray gives an amazing performance in Earthcore. He makes the book rise up and brings each character to life with unique voices. I also enjoyed the little bit of production in there. They use a little sound in between each intense scene to kind of accent the moment. Usually that type of thing is annoying but it works great with Ray Porter's bad@ss performance.

Ray Porter great book so so

I think my headline sums it up. Had a lot of potential but the last four hours are a struggle to get through as nothing interesting happens and the obvious is dragged on. A few changes and this could of been great. Ray Porter was a pleasure to listen too as always but he could read the obituaries and make it a worthwhile listen.

Sicker never ceases to amaze

Not my absolute favorite of his works but it always amazes me how he manages to tie together characters from all his books, from different races/timelines/planets/story lines/etc., it's like an extra "Easter egg" to recognize something from a previously read story.

Looking forward to Mt Fitzroy, though!

Signer & Porter? Yes, please

What did you love best about Earthcore?

Fast paced, bogged down a little bit in the middle, but overall kept my interest through the whole 19 hours.

What did you like best about this story?

The character development. I felt like I really got to know (most of) the reasons the characters reacted the way they did.

What does Ray Porter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr. Porter is hands down my favorite narrator and was a perfect choice for this book. I have listened to almost everything he has done. This was an automatic buy for me, and did not disappoint.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Why is this not a movie already?

Any additional comments?

Well worth the credit, highly recommend.

amazing in every way

Ray Porter did a stellar job with the narration, he brought all the characters to life. The story was good, characters had excellent depth and development.

another stellar Sigler novel!

I can't wait for what comes next. Sigler is the new face of the thriller/ hottie genre.

great book!

I really enjoyed the original version of Earthcore. Didn't think it could get much better. This re-write proved me wrong.
Great job Scott!
