Such a sad thing when a book/idea has a lot of potential for being interesting, but never quite hits the mark. There are an awful lot of coincidences that pop up in order to move the plot along. "The Meq have to get out of *insert location here*...and LOOK! So-and-So just happens to be there with his plane/boat/whatever!"

Not awful, really, but it could have been so much better.
(okay, it was close to awful, now that I think back on it)

At long last! And I was just about to write to the author, too. Is it wrong to feel giddy about a book?
It’s a hook without a book – or in this case, books.

Steve Cash, once with the Ozark Mountain Daredevils (he co-wrote “Jackie Blue”, if you go back that far), has finally delivered the finale in his series, The Meq, and “The Remembering” (Del Rey, $15, 280 pages) is nothing but a contract-fulfiller that goes absolutely nowhere.

Here’s the hook: There exist among us a very human-like species that looks like 12-year-old children, called the Meq. They are essentially immortal, until they “cross over”
First off, I loved this series. I had been waiting for this book for YEARS and I am thanking my lucky stars that it finally came out. It wraps up the story nicely although some of the big "why are we here" questions aren't really answered. I was surprised with the way Zuriaa's story ended. It seemed like she didn't really further the plot a ton, and I don't know how to feel about the fleur du mal anymore. Still, really well written books. Lots of reread value.
Somewhat depressing. I liked the first two books slightly better.

Problems with this series: First, how easily they get out of trouble. Second, how they just randomly meet famous people (or people who will become famous). Third, how the books read more like a history book than a novel. And finally, how COMPLETELY unsatisfying the ending is!

1) They get in trouble!! Oh, no! How will they ever be saved?!? "Oh look! Here's some random person we know! What a wonderful coincidence that they happen to
My least favorite of the three. It was a slightly disappointing end to the trilogy for me.
When I was writing my dissertation, I received a notice that I had won signed copies of the fourth realm trilogy from John Twelve Hawks. It pretty much made my month (I was writing a dissertation - pleasures get savored for a longer time).

I've had two moves in two years, both cross-country in a car. Most of my stuff had to go. I only kept a few books. My intent though, is to replace a lot of the books I've lost. And some of those I want as signed copies.

The Meq trilogy is likely to be the next o

I enjoyed this one very much. It's the third book in the Meq series, and a long awaited one. The characters are very interesting. The whole premise of virtually immortal people "frozen" in the body of a 12 year old until they find their Ameq (life partner) is fascinating. The series of books spans hundreds of years in the lives of the Meq as they travel the world in search of the meaning of their existence.

Some of the characters are more sympathetic than others, and the relationships are wonderf
There were interesting parts, but all in all it was implausible that the world of the Meq would become so intertwined with that of the Giza's governments and wars, etc. These ancient people are not ones to jump at frivolities and this book seemed to have them running around too much. The ending seemed trite, as a grand gesture by Z and Opari was quickly ruined in the epilogue. An unfortunate end to such a fabulous first book.
Also, it is quite short compared to the other two books. An unbelievabl
The trilogy itself is wonderful. One of the most exciting history lessons I ever had! The Remembering was a great finish to the trilogy. It answered almost all questions and threw in a few surprises as well. It wasn't too predicable either. It's always hard to read the last book without big expectations and hope and I think Steve Cash ended it perfect.

I would gladly read another Steve Cash book!

I really liked this book and thought it was a great ending to the series. It was also much less disturbing as the Fleu Du Mal was not in it too much.
