Just before Meg Murry’s little brother, Charles Wallace, falls deathly ill, he sees dragons in the vegetable garden. The dragons turn out to be Proginoskes, a cherubin composed of wings and eyes, wind and flame. It is up to Meg and Proginoskes, along with Meg’s friend Calvin, to save Charles Wallace’s life. To do so, they must travel deep within Charles Wallace to attempt to defeat the Echthroi – those who hate – and restore brilliant harmony and joy to the rhythm of creation, the song of the universe.

OTHER BOOKS IN SERIES: A Wrinkle in Time
Book two in the Murry/O’Keefe’s/Wrinkle in Time series I was very much looking forward to this one. I’ve only just read A Wrinkle in Time after seeing that phenomenal trailer so I wanted to keep up the momentum and push on with the series.
I’d have thought after what happened in books one Meg would be a bit more open-minded. I understand her impatience even though it would drive me bananas at times but the lack of belief was hard. I love that these books are so odd both in characters and plot as well as science filled but not in a way you can’t understand. They read quickly and ultimately give a positive message. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series as everyone will have aged a bit and I look forward to peeking back in on this quirky family to see what they have grown up to be.
