Emma (Miss Print)
"Time Dancers" is the second book in Steve Cash's sweeping fantasy trilogy called "The Meq" (also the title of the first book in the trilogy). When forced to explain the plot of "The Meq" in one sentence, my reply is this: the story is like the Highlander TV series/movies but the immortals here are twelve years old. To get more specific, the Meq stop aging when they turn twelve until they find their ameq (their soul mate). Once they are united, the two enter what is called "The Wait" until they ...more

The sequel to The Meq is another page turner. The story of Zianno and the Meq continues with even more action. Him, Opari and the others who hold one of four stones. These stones provide them with extra powers that other Meq don't have and it becomes their job to find the fifth stone that will help them through the Remembering. One in a trilogy, Time Dancers picks up where The Meq left off. The Meq are a race who stop aging when
I didn't like this book as well as the first one. I kept hearing yeah yeah yeah blah blah blah in my head. Yeah they are a bunch of twelve year olds who can somehow travel globally without incident. Yeah the Fleur Du Mal is evil but I don't think he elaborates on that enough. He flits into the story knows everything that is going on and flits out again while the rest of the cast blunders about. How many times can you write the same scenario without it becoming dull. I think Steve Cash tries to w ...more

second book in the meq trilogy. the first book leaves you dying to know what happens next. the second book does not disappoint and it leaves you aching for the third. it is truelly a dance of time between the meq and humans. although the meq are immortal you see their humanity filled with their strengths and weaknesses. you are hurtled into the world of mystery/magic and whirled through history, through time.
The continuing story of Z, who has recently celebrated his 12th birthday for the 38th time. I love the historical guest stars in this trilogy. I like a well-written book that forces me to refer to wikipedia every hour or so to figure out who someone is likely to be (ie "Tumpy" Josephine = Josephine Baker).

Very enjoyable, very well-written. I'll be a little sad when I finish the next book.
The second installment in the Meq series...amazing still. Cash is one of those truly imaginative writers that make you wonder how they come up with the things they do.

The characters are so real and they work their way through world events we all know about. Cash doesn't dwell on the world stage, but lets history infuse his story with richness.

Can't wait for the third one.
I hate middle books. This one ended with . . . nope, I'm not going to tell. Now I have to wait for the final one. It was scheduled for release in 2007, but was delayed by the publisher. It's now due in February 2011. That's a five year wait. (I guess I can't complain. Just think of all those people waiting for the last Jane Auel book.)
Like all second books in a series it seems, this was weaker than book one, but with a huge cliffhanger ending. The search for the sixth stone and Fleur-de-Mal seems to cloud the judgement of the characters and I was disappointed with the way the story moved away from the tribe of Basque herdsman/protectors.

This is a well-realised and unique world, parallel to ours, and the characters are fascinating! I couldn't finish book 1 in the series (this is book 2) and it's past the boring stuff! Excellent.. One historical fluff but that's not important...
This story interested me enough, despite the stilted writing style, that I'll keep a look out for the third in the series. I wish I'd taken notes when the characters were introduced, so I could keep their multiple names straight.
This is the second Meq book, and it was just as good as the first, if not better. The only thing I have to complain about is that it ends in such a great cliffhanger and yet the third book has yet to come out.
Not nearly as good as the first book. Too many historical events of significance to be swallowable, even in a fantasy novel. I'm still hooked enough I'm going to finish the series though.

Awesome. I can't wait for book three.
