A flash of lightning, quivering ground, and, instead of her grandparents' farm, Polly O'Keefe sees mist and jagged mountains—and coming toward her, a group of young men carrying spears—in this fifth book in the series that began with the Newbery Medal–winning A Wrinkle in Time, for readers 12 and up. Why has a time gate opened and dropped Polly into a world that existed 3,000 years ago? Will she be able to get back to the present before the time gate closes—and leaves her to face a group of people who believe in human sacrifice?
"Readers who love time travel will love this complex and time-consuming book."—SFChronicle
