Publisher's Summary

In Crossroads of Twilight, book 10 of the best selling Wheel of Time series, Mat Cauthon is fleeing from Ebou Dar with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, whom he is fated to marry. He learns that he can neither safely keep her nor let her go, for both the Shadow and the might of the Seanchan Empire are in deadly pursuit.
Perrin Aybara seeks to free his wife, Faile, a captive of the Shaido, but his only hope may be an alliance with the enemy. Can he remain true to his friend Rand and to himself? For his love of Faile, Perrin is willing to sell his soul.
At Tar Valon, Egwene al'Vere, the young Amyrlin of the rebel Aes Sedai, lays siege to the heart of Aes Sedai power, but she must win quickly, with as little bloodshed as possible. Unless the Aes Sedai are reunited, only the male Asha'man will remain to defend the world against the Dark One, and nothing can hold the Asha'man themselves back from total power except the Aes Sedai and a unified White Tower.
In Andor, Elayne Trakand fights for the Lion Throne that is hers by right, but enemies and Darkfriends surround her, plotting her destruction. If she fails, Andor may fall to the Shadow, and the Dragon Reborn with it.
Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn himself, has cleansed the Dark One's taint from the male half of the True Source, and everything has changed. Yet nothing has, for only men who can channel believe that saidin is clean again, and a man who can channel is still hated and feared - even one prophesied to save the world. Now, Rand must gamble again, with himself at stake, and he cannot be sure which of his allies are really enemies.

The Lowest Point of the Entire Series

Any additional comments?

Crossroads of Twilight is a long, tedious, uninteresting entry into what has become a tired and bloated fantasy series. This is a book filled with plot threads stretched well beyond their logical breaking point. Consisting of five plot lines involving the core characters, most of which have been dragged through no fewer than four of the preceding novels, this entry fails to capture any of the excitement and wonder that made the first third of this long, LONG series so incredible. Characters are morphed beyond recognition, put into ridiculous and illogical situations in, I suppose, an effort to up the ante for the promised epic conclusion. After ten books one would think that Rand, Matt, or Perrin would finally come to accept their roles in the slowly unfolding drama but we are yet again subjected to endless exposition detailing their illogical and nonsensical reluctance. This book is boring and tedious and at times, unforgivingly silly. Unless you’ve invested countless hours in this series and, like myself, are determined to see it through to the end, I would in no way suggest this novel as any kind of standalone read. I’m not even sure it would make any kind of sense unless you’ve trudged through the previous nine. If you are a fan of the series, I suggest getting the audiobook – the stellar narration of Michael Kramer and Kate Reading make this bitter pill go down a lot easier and I assure you that the series does get better – particularly when Brandon Sanderson takes over after Jordan’s untimely death.

Not so bad.. if you re-read the whole series

I was one of those that gave up on WoT after trying to read Crossroads. I never finished. Several years later, and I gave WoT another chance. I bought every RJ audiobook and listened to the over again. I have to admit, Crossroads made more sense, even though not a whole lot still happened. It is indeed a book that's purpose is simply to build up the rest of the overall story. That is probably the biggest problem with the book - it is SUPPOSE to create more questions and answer none. But being able to continue on to Knife of Dreams immediately after finishing Crossroads, I gained a deeper understanding for the purpose of the book. I still think its the worst of the series, but I think most people were so horrified with the book that when it ended, there was great disappointment. KoD and Crossroads should have been a single book, but if you read the series over again, I don't think you'll find Crossroads so bad.

Tediously slow....

The worst in the series so far. Little bits of excitement, but they are few and far between - and just too many random characters who I have no real intersest in...... The reviews say book 11 is better, so I will press on, but really this one was a waste of a credit.

Nothing much happens.

Plot development almost stops. Even the scenes with Matt drag. Perrin is at his most annoying.
