Joe Agsterabout this book: The Final Six Days is a science-fiction adventure and the first book in the Time Crossers series. The story revolves around a man with no memory who awakes in the Las Vegas desert and learns that a civilization-busting asteroid will crash in six days. After dying by the menacing fireball with the beautiful and brilliant Cassie by his side, he discovers he is living the same six days over and over. As he tries to save her, he uncovers clues that suggest he is meant for a greater purpose.
The story has been over five years in the making. I took great care to make my story as true to reality as I could, studying asteroids with profound interest. I spent months pouring over websites and papers written by NASA, IAU, Asteroid Day, etc. I also scoured message boards to really get a feel about how people thought about asteroid and their potential for destruction. But with any fictional story, some liberties were taken.
The story can be best described as a mash up of Groundhog Day, The Matrix, and Armageddon. It explores time travel and the multiverse, along with the concept of "timelooping." It digs into the physics and philosophy of being anchored to a single spot in spacetime, the place where a timelooper inevitably returns to spawn a new thread in the multiverse and live again. The story also features twists and intrigue, a complex romance between the two primary characters, and numerous subplots to keep the reader interested. The ending leaves the reader with some lingering questions, leading perfectly into the next book in the series.
