Deep below a desolate Utah mountain lays 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 Kirkland and EarthCore are not the first to find this treasure. The mountain's history reveals two centuries of disappearances, murder, and insanity. The discovery of ancient platinum knives, razor-sharp despite lying untouched for 1,000 years, reveals evidence of an ancient culture. If the artifacts are genuine, they show a pre-historic empire that once spanned from the Southern tip of South America all the way up through the American Southwest. Wealth and fame lie under that Utah mountain, 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. Earthcore, by Scott Sigler

Customer Reviews

Thumbs Up!

I recently finished listening to this story and I have to say, I loved it! Without spoiling the story for those of you who haven’t listened to it, I enjoyed the way the story took time to develop. If you read the Podcast description, then you know a good portion of the story takes place in a Utah Mountain. However, before the characters even step foot into the mountain, Sigler takes the time to introduce the characters and build up suspense to the point you can’t wait to know what lies in the mountain. The characters are memorable, some of them you’d hate, others you instantly like, and you witness the transformation of characters as well. Furthermore, the story has plenty of action. I recommend giving this story a chance.

Good solid entertainment

Though not a classic literary masterpice, Earthcore was good solid entertainment. The plot was not at all predictable and the characters developed nicely and unexpectedly throughout this inventive and twisted fantasy. The pictures that the author painted were easy to visualize and I found myself compelled to crank up the iPod and listen even when I should've been working...kudos to Scott Sigler!!! Just downloaded his "Ancestors" and can't wait to begin another bizarre adventure.

Brilliant and fun!

Sigler was a podiobook pioneer and this, his first attempt set an amazing standard for all podiobooks. Enter the world of Earthcore and get a taste of scifi, a pile of action, some interesting characters, and a chuckle as Scott impersonates four separate female characters (I tease because I love, Scott. I couldn't do it). Earthcore is a fun, riviting story that pretty much became my sole listening experience in my car and while walking the dog. I certainly recommend it.
