A Wind in the Door by Madeleine L'Engle

"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 cherubim composed of wings and eyes, wind and flam. It is up to Meg and Proginoskes, along with Meg's friend Calvin, to save Charles Wallace's life. To do so, they must 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." -From

I enjoyed this sequel to A Wrinkle in Time. However, I did not enjoy it as much. The first book was a bit faster-paced. I felt that L'Engle drew-out certain scenes in the book that were unnecessarily long. Other than that, it was a good follow-up book, and I continue to look forward to reading the rest of the series.
