It’s Tuesday 29th of September (September has flown by!), which means it’s time for another round of the Meerkat Musings… book club? Is that we’ll call this? I don’t really know… anyway!

They are sent on adventures across the land to retrieve a set of magical items required to halt the terror. Pixies and merfolk, sworn enemies, must unite for the greater good.

Shala and Flinch, a loyal and determined delphen partnership, join forces with Alia the valiant elf, Aqua the wizard’s apprentice and a whole gang of courageous mythical creatures in a quest to help Denrael save the population of the land from Fury’s cold-blooded onslaught. Can they gather all of the mystical elements required to break the dragons’ curse before Fury destroys the world with his horde? Can they put their differences aside to abate the threat of a total cataclysm? When it appears that all hope may be lost, will the fates intervene?

Last but certainly not least is The Key Masters of Telemma, from J.S. Frankel, a story of a mysterious pocket universe!
Bill Newell and Carla Meadows, both seventeen and both dying, live out their final days in a palliative care center in Portland, Oregon. Bill has no hope of recovering, but the appearance of a strange key on his bed one day intrigues him. Carla receives the same key, and soon they find themselves in a pocket universe ruled by one being, a being-not-a-being named Malgorath who wields immense power.
Malgorath makes them a deal. Find four keys, ones of silver, gold, glass, and paper, and return them to him. Upon their retrieval, he will cure them of their illness and send them back to Earth. For Malgorath, the keys are the key to finding Falnarth, a mythical world that holds many secrets.
Bill and Carla have no secrets to discover, save life. With no choice in the matter, they agree to the terms and soon find themselves journeying to worlds of silver, gold—ruled by robots—glass, ruled by a power-mad queen, and one of wood. Each key’s retrieval is more dangerous than the last but Bill and Carla are determined to succeed in their quest.
However, they soon realize that Malgorath has his own agenda, and they must do everything in their power before the demon can fuse the keys together and destroy—and recreate—the universe.
