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.

    "brutal torture, get on with the story"

    Disappointed, this whole book is filler, I hope book 11 gets better. Basically press play on the IPOD with this book and do something else. How many new sedai do we need to learn about???????
    I think you could skip this book and not miss anything, which is to bad as the series up to this point was really good. What was Jordon thinking? I think he switched brands of smokes for this one.

    "Filler"

    Not a bad listen, and I really like this series, but nothing ever really happens. Very disappointing in the end.

    "Math Problem"

    He writes wonderfully, but his story and plots no longer makes and sense, and no one ever stays in character any more.
    He may also want to go back and read some of his first books. When all the clans where brought together the Shaido numbered in around 60,000. Then about 25,000 died at thier first encounter with Rand, then another 40,000 at Dumies Well (or how ever its spelled). Big problem there, but maybe the brotherless bolstered thier ranks. All of a sudden with ten steppes they have 70,000 and they will join another 10 steppes. What these guys breed and grow like rabbits.
    Sorry althought the writing style is pleasant to listen to the story is nonsense.

    "The Publisher's Summary Says It All"

    Yawn. Another book by Robert Jordan full of beautiful descriptions and characters. Unfortunately nothing happens. Plot and storyline have been forgotten and Jordan seems to be content with providing a book that has no content. Skip the book and read the Publisher's Summary, you'll be well prepared for the next in the series. Hopefully by then, Jordan will remember how he began this series and provide a good storyline as well as good writing.

    "You Can Skip This One"

    I have also listened to all of Robert Jordan's books for the Wheel of Time series. This book was a disappointment. The main character is pretty much ignored, the dragon reborn himself, and nothing resolved or exciting happened throughout the entire book. I certainly hope the next book is much much better and that the entire series ends soon.

    "A real snoozer."

    Just when you think the action is going to start either Jordan switches story lines or nothing happens. The new prequel looks promising but this book is nowhere near the quality of the others. I listen on the bus to/from work and this one insures I get extra nap time each day!

    "Boring waste of space!"

    When I started this series I thought is was to be a trilogy, then book 4,5,6, etc. came out but it captivated me. Never did I experience a world so intriguing since the Lord of the Rings. Book 9 started me thinking that Robert Jordan was milking this story and was just dragging his feet. Book 10 was a full confirmation that he likes to hear himself talk because this book was a complete letdown. Nothing but another boring chapter in each of his characters? stories! Unfortunately I?m starting not to care about the characters any more! Book 11 better be the end of this tale or Mr. Jordan has lost me as a reader for good.

    "A waste of batteries"

    You can actually skip this book, wait for the next one in the series, and find that you didn't miss anything. If I could rate it as half a star it would be more accurate.

    "Thanks for nothing"

    This book goes absolutely nowhere. I thought maybe several hundred pages fell out of the end and I missed all the action. I'm kind of curious how long Mr. Jordon thinks people will keep paying for books that don't move the plot at all. I forgave him for book #9 thinking that he was building up to a blowout in book #10. But....nothing. Hundreds and hundreds of pages of characters that I don't care about talking about nothing important or advancing the story in any way. You've profited enough from me, Mr. Jordan. Never again.

    "Time to quit?"

    Jordan started this series out on fire. The first 5 books or so were a great read with good pacing and enough twisting of plot that you kept coming back. I am about half way through this one, and the pattern seems clear to me. Originally, reports were that this was going to be a ten book series. I get the feeling Jordan slowed the story down and is trying to milk it for all it's worth. Maybe success went to his head, but he needs to get back to the formula that made him popular in the first place. As invested as I am in the series, I am no longer rushing out for the next book as it hits the shelves. I'll wait for the next one to come out in paperback.

    All that said, I am hoping this will be easier to listen to than to read. If you're even remotely interested in seeing what's going on here, don't start in the middle. Go get the first book and work your way through the series, or this one will seem even worse.

    "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.

    "The weakest of the wheel of time so far"

    Very very very little story progression. In need of a good editor and a lot more content. I don't even feel like the characters are more rounded. Skip it and read up on the plot points in a wiki.

    Not the best book in the series though as always Robert Jordan enthralls! Can't wait for my account to renew so I can download the next book in the series.

    "Not the greatest of reads"
    Would you try another book written by Robert Jordan or narrated by Kate Reading and Michael Kramer ?

    Having read all the previous books in this series, I will continue to the last one although it will be difficult to pick up the threads.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Jordan again?

    Yes


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Many repeated passages & obviously missed sections.


    Any additional comments?

    Technical issues abound on this recording. Missing sections & numerous repeated passages have ruined this book.
