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.

Slow book

This series is starting to drag .... but I can't stop now so here we go.

By drag I mean I feel a lot of this book was stretched out. Could have been a few chapters but instead it's a 35 hour book. Still good content.

One of the worst books I have ever read.

Almost literally nothing happens. Painful, awful read. I want my 20+ hours back. Would recommend skipping this book.

Why all the hate?

Sure, not a lot happened but it's a story. It gives detail. It does not have major plot advancement but it does continue the tale. It's a good listen.

..... getting a little mundane

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. But only because it has been a wonderful journey so far but honestly it gets really boring how he repeats himself over and over and over and over..... talking about things that anyone who has come this far already knows well if not has already memorized. He needs to add content to the books not bulk. Bulk will never make it better just longer and more likely to lose followers.

What did you like best about this story?

The people and their strengths and weaknesses. It shows a somewhat real side, that most people can relate to in emotions and trails.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

NO. I HATE the readers, one gives one person a accent that was not there in the last reading or they use a totally different tone for the same person in the same book. They have switched several times..... absolutely annoying. In one book Elaine sounds British snob when read by the male and like I don't know what when read by the female reader, and in another she is.... really a whiny little American girl. This is not from growth of her role in the book. These two readers just can't get together on who these people are.... it will not flow ever at this rate

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Come listen to me drone, on and on and on and.... yeah you get it.

Any additional comments?

If you listen to this be ready to pull your hair out while at the same time be ready to want to slap the writer.... to bad he has passed, however.... at the end of all this it is worth the listen.... if for no other reason, you know the good guys have to win..... don't they.
