    Story
    (2078)

    The dead are walking, men die impossible deaths, and it seems as though reality itself has become unstable: All are signs of the imminence of Tarmon Gai'don, the Last Battle, when Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn, must confront the Dark One as humanity's only hope. But Rand dares not fight until he possesses all the surviving seals on the Dark One's prison and has dealt with the Seanchan, who threaten to overrun all nations this side of the Aryth Ocean and increasingly seem too entrenched to be fought off.

    Story

    The past 3 books have mostly been awful, if judged on their own and not as a whole with the entire series.

    This one is definitely better, but only because of the Mat Cauthon story line. I would have thought I would enjoy Perrin's as well, but it is attached to yet another situation where a bunch of female characters are being held against their will. And, of course, as soon as she is rescued, Jordan immediately writes another set of his female characters to walk with bravado into another obvious situation for things to not go as planned and one of them gets taken against their will.

    I agree with many of the other reviews. Jordan is as verbose as ever, but everything reads rushed and sloppy. I can't help but feel that there was too much time spent on things that just don't have enough literary value to the story.

    It's worth it just for the Mat Cauthon parts, though. Mat has consistently been the most interesting and consistently quality reading character out of all of the later books. Perhaps making up for the fact that he spent so much of the earlier books annoyingly under the influence of or chasing the dagger from Shadar Logoth.

    The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow. Let the Dragon ride again on the winds of time. Crossroads of Twilight is book ten of Robert Jordan's best selling Wheel of Time series.

    Story

    Unfortunately, far too much time is spent on story lines that do not advance the story. And within those useless story lines, Jordan goes into great detail about irrelevant things. Who doesn't want to hear about Elayne's sore nipples or nausea? Or how dissatisfied she is with having to drink weak tea and eat tasteless food all the time?

    Time passes very slowing in this book and you even go back in time. Saidin isn't even cleansed for half the book.

    This book is mostly filler, very stretched filler. It gives us a lengthy status update about character development for characters are really don't care about very much.

    The voice talent in Kate Reading and Michael Kramer are excellent, as always.
