A Swiftly Tilting Planet
In this companion volume to "A Wrinkle In Time" (Newbery Award winner) and "A Wind In The Door" fifteen-year-old Charles Wallace and the unicorn Gaudior undertake a perilous journey through time in a desperate attempt to stop the destruction of the world by the mad dictator Madog Branzillo. They are not alone in their quest. Charles Wallace's sister, Meg--grown and expecting her first child, but still able to enter her brother's thoughts and emotions by "kything"--goes with him in spirit. But in overcoming the challenges, Charles Wallace must face the ultimate test of his faith and will, as he is sent within four people from another time, there to search for a way to avert the tragedy threatening them all.

This book is amazing. At first I choose it just because, but as I read it, I started to get interested in it. But what I dont like is that I cant get the whole book!!!
In this fateful hour
Alt Heaven with its power
The sun with its brightness
The snow with its whiteness
The fire with aU the strength it hath
The lightning with its rapid wrath
The winds with their swiftness 249
The sea with its deepness
The rocks with their steepness
The earth with Us starkness
All these I place
Between myself and the powers of darkness
