I know this is kind of way late, but here is the review for book three.
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.
As you all know, I am a huge fan of A Wrinkle in Time. Totally excited about the Disney movie coming out in March. But that being said, this books has me with mixed feelings.
As the series is called the Time Quintet, this book does a bit of a time jump. Well not a bit, a huge time jump. We see Meg go from being in high school to having been married and expecting her first child. And Charles in now a teenager. While I’m happy about those outcomes, I would have loved to see more of Calvin and Meg in high school. (Yes, I ship them together.)
As it is, I felt that there could have been more of Meg. But I’m glad CW got an adventure on his own. (See mixed feeling I tell you).
Basically C.W. has to travel back in time, like to the beginning of a certain civilization, in order to change the present. Once he completes a task in that time he jumps forward in time, closer to the present.
All these conflicting emotions are good, it means I thoroughly enjoyed the book.
