In A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L'Engle, a companion to the Newbery Award winner A Wrinkle in Time 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. Charles Wallace must face the ultimate test of his faith and his will as he is sent within four people from another time, there to search for a way to avert the tragedy threatening them all.

I think it is going to be awesome once Charles meets the magically time traveling unicorn I've read the others before this one and i am still hooked on i cant believe they are all grown up except for Charles, wawawaaaann :( but hes at least fifteen so pretty close.

What I thought of it: Wasn't as good as all the others, but it was pretty good.

I thought this book was really amaz! It combined magic, fantasy, and action all in one! You don't have to read the Wrinkle in Time first to understand it, but I recommend you read it, as well. It is another great book!
