Publisher's 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.

    "Loved it"

    I listened to Earthcaore as a free podcast , and because I loved it so much I bought it anyway. I very much enjoy Scott Sigler's books. I am also buy all of them on audio and when they first come out I buy a numbered, signed hard back. I highly recommend all of Scott Sigler's books.

    "Another great book by Scott Sigler!"

    A incredibly fantastic, and original storyline, Scott Sigler does it again. Character development is top notch.

    "One of my favorite audiobooks!"

    This is an excellent book, an excellent author and an excellent narrator! The world's first podcast only novel, now reworked by the author to better fit his universe, and narrated by one of the absolute best narrator's out there. If you like Joe ledger, read it. If you like Joe Rush, read it. You like Peter Clines, read it. If you like many other books that either straddle the lines between or sit solidly inside horror, science fiction or thriller, you should read this book. And the epilogue made me dance a jig! Seriously, Most of the books I've read by sigler are amazing! Especially the infected books and Ancestor.

    Story
    "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.

    plenty of action, believable characters, an all around good read...
    some of the science was not explained very well, but that isn't much of a complaint!

    "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.

    "Great!"

    Grips you from start to finish! I have not read any Sigler books, but plan to now. I strongly urge you to read this one. Masterfuly written and played out by the voice actor. I usually try to spread out books over a few weeks for my commute but I couldn't stop myself! I finished it in just a few days!

    "Amazing, wild ride!"

    Scott Sigler added another 50% to his original EarthCore book and re-released it this month. I bought both the Kindle and Audible versions because I like to read or listen without interruption no matter what I'm doing and will switch back and forth. In fact, I became so obsessed with EarthCore, I couldn't put it down for 3 minutes to get a snack or drink and would have to switch to the audio so I wouldn't miss anything!

    And Sigler...! I spent 2 nights ago having nightmares ALL. NIGHT. LONG. What the...?!! Thanks a lot!

    I had been looking for a copy of EarthCore for the past couple of years so I was thrilled when it was revamped and released again! And it's now one of my top favs of Sigler's books. Also, it terrified me in parts almost as much as Infected did! Dang!

    A major corporation manages to be first to a massive find of a precious metal miles underground; deeper than any other mine in the world. What they discovered knocked my socks off!

    My favorite characters were, hands down, Patrick and Bertha.

    And I must mention the incredible Ray Porter who did the performance for the audiobook! I became so lost in his words while driving that I missed my turn off. ...Twice!

    I could easily see this book turned into a movie! It's action packed with lots of incredible tech. Hope you're not too squeamish though!

    "Great Book And Narrator"
    What did you love best about Earthcore?

    Great story that kept you wanting to keep listening.


    What other book might you compare Earthcore to and why?

    No real comparison which is what I like about this author. Very original work.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    To hard to pick one scene that was my favorite. The best section of the book was when they were underground and attempting to find a way out. so the second half of the book I guess.


    Who was the most memorable character of Earthcore and why?

    Kirkland to me was the most memorable. A tough guy that ended up being a caring guy in the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there is a second book to this series. The first left a lot of open ends at the end to make me think there would be a second one in the future.

    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.

    A slow start, but once it gets going, it's unstoppable. Gripping you refusing to let go leaving you wanting more. The story could translate into a low budget cheesy film. But as a book it's magnificent.
