Completely re-written and re-injected with high-octane awesome, the final version of EARTHCORE is 50% girthier than the original. Brought up-to-date so it finally falls into the Siglerverse timeline (as a post-PANDEMIC novel), this thriller is a hammer-blow to the soul.
NOTE: The Amazon link is for the Kindle version only. The “hardcover” link there is for the old German-language version, and the “paperback” is for the original 2005 version.
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 firsthand why this treasure has never been unearthed.
PRAISE FOR EARTHCORE:
“From where I stand, Sigler is at the top of the tree.”
Jason Bradbury: BBC
“An exciting read, and very highly recommended for all science fiction enthusiasts, EarthCore would be a popular addition to community library SciFi collections and documents Scott Sigler as an effective, entertaining storyteller.”
Midwest Book Review
“This novel’s got it all: cutting-edge science; a perfectly-realized setting; terror both plausible and profoundly unsettling. EarthCore is more exciting than a thriller has any right to be!”
Lincoln Child: New York Times bestselling co-author of RELIC
“Bad things happen to bad people in this book. Then they happen some more. Very. Bad. Things. Things that make you wonder just what sort of childhood the author must have lived through. No way I’m going caving with him anytime soon. Or letting him near knives in my presence.”
Evo Terra: Founder of Podiobooks.com
“One thing I particularly like is that Sigler didn’t pull his punches or cop-out at any point. All the threats lined up at the beginning of the book were delivered on before the end. In fact I strongly recommend that you not get too attached to any characters as Sigler is ruthless at culling them throughout the novel.”
Eoghann Irving: Solar Flare
“There’s a lot to recommend this book, and anyone who enjoys sf thrillers will enjoy this.”
Steve Mazey: EternalNight
“EarthCore may be considered a sci-fi novel, but I would rate it right up there with some of my favorite creepy horror novels. EarthCore is a fantastic choice to add to your bookshelf.”
Tracy Farnsworth: Roundtable Reviews
“I loved this book! Right from the start it built the tension and had me wondering ‘What the heck is it?’ Then, after the reveal it had me squirming in my chair going “Oh my God! EEK!!”
