A review by ablotial
Earthcore by Scott Sigler


This book was awesome! It sucked me in immediately and I raved about it to a bunch of my reader friends. I had never heard of it, but the new book [b:Mount Fitz Roy|36394199|Mount Fitz Roy|Scott Sigler|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1508721634l/36394199._SY75_.jpg|58086232] (note, disappointed to learn this is Audible only) was rated very highly by a friend whose taste in books I trust, so I picked this one up first. Honestly, I wasn't expecting much but I was completely blown away. I loved the characters, cracked up at the hacker spy woman and her supposed job, rooted for certain characters to get together, for certain characters to survive. I love love loved the linguistic aspects of the book, deciphering the messages the roctopi left. The book didn't end the way I wanted it to, but that almost made it better. I'm excited to read (well, listen) to the sequel and see what else we can learn about these creatures and how the two groups got split up.
