Mother is a scientist, Father experiments with space and time travel, Meg is a mathematical whiz, and Charles Wallace is a six-year-old genius. Now, for the first time, Sandy and Dennys find themselves involved in a fantastic adventure. They have been thrown back in time to a desert land filled with mythical beasts and humans barely four feet tall. There they meet Noah, who is starting to build a huge boat. He warns that "many waters" are coming to the desert. Sandy and Dennys must find a way back home soon, or they will drown. Also inhabiting the desert are the beautiful yet dnagerous nephilim, who encourage the humans to be selfish and vain, while their brothers, the gentle, winged seraphim, do their best to protect the humans' innocence. As Sandy and Dennys struggle to survive the harsh desert they, too, are tempted by the devious nephilim. Can they resist the sensuous invitations of Tiglah? Will they ever get back to their own place and time?
