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.

it was a great bundle of stories with a very spooky first story. I really enjoyed listening to all of them but it gets gross in places. the main character is intense but likeable and other characters add a lot to the story line. enjoy.

honestly it was laughable how weak and surface level this love story was. I finished all three books and it was at best mildly entertaining but probably best for a 12-13yr old kid. only the female characters are so weak and the males so stupid dominant its not very endearing. if your an adult I don't recommend this book.
