    Description

    Now an original series starring Rosamund Pike as Moiraine!

    Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time® by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers and listeners around the globe with its scope, originality, and compelling characters.

    The Wheel of Time turns and Ages come and go, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth returns again. In the Third Age, an Age of Prophecy, the World and Time themselves hang in the balance. What was, what will be, and what is, may yet fall under the Shadow.

    The seals of Shayol Ghul are weak now, and the Dark One reaches out. The Shadow is rising to cover humankind.

    In Tar Valon, Min sees portents of hideous doom. Will the White Tower itself be broken?

    In the Two Rivers, the Whitecloaks ride in pursuit of a man with golden eyes, and in pursuit of the Dragon Reborn.

    In Cantorin, among the Sea Folk, High Lady Suroth plans the return of the Seanchan armies to the mainland.

    In the Stone of Tear, the Lord Dragon considers his next move. It will be something no one expects, not the Black Ajah, not Tairen nobles, not Aes Sedai, not Egwene or Elayne or Nynaeve.

    Against the Shadow rising stands the Dragon Reborn....

    Boring

    That is the most boring one of the serie for now. I hope the next one will be better.

    Seriously?

    I’m too invested to stop now, I’m sticking with the series to see how it ends and hoping some of the hundreds of unanswered questions will be answered. If I had been reading the series as they were released, I would have been absolutely livid after finishing this 10th book. Robert Jordan managed to fill an entire book with fluff and mind numbing descriptions. I could write a few sentences for people to read and they’d be able to skip this book entirely and not miss out on any plot developments. It blows my mind how little the plot moved. As usual Michael Kramer is amazing. Best reader in the game.

    nothing happens

    I've read this book twice, this was my first time listing to the audiobook. It's horribly boring. There are chapters, that I find myself asking why is this important, why is this included, and what happened to the tempo of the first 11 books. I think I didn't notice how bad it was reading the book because I'd take longer breaks, but listing to it really brings out the lack of progress in the storyline. Stuff does happen, but it's painfully drawn out.

    Skip this book....seriously...skip it

    Literally nothing happened in this book. no story line development, no battle, no anything. you could skip this book entirely and have missed nothing more than people sitting around and talking about things that don't pertain to anything.

    Almost nothing happened!

    The only (ONLY) part of this book that impacts the story line is Matt and Tuon's courtship. Aside from that, I was bored witless. I read somewhere that Jordan was influenced by War and Peace. I couldn't agree more. This book removes all doubt.

    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.

    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.

    outfits and moods

    Basically, without any spoilers, this book goes like this:

    1. 1 hour of something happening to move the story along
    2. 24 hours of describing outfits and moody facial expressions
    3. 1 hour of something happening to move the story along

    This book is only for people who must finish the series.

    Reading this book is a chore.

    Great series, this book seems focus on events mostly before the events of the previous book’s climax and spends a lot of time from the perspective of characters that are minor and new. I took my first real break reading this series during this book and i debated skipping parts of this book which was another first for me on the series.

    I hope it gets better because I’m losing interest

    Can someone please just tell me how this ends?!

    Apologies to fans of the books, but I'm done. I've spent hundreds of hours listening to ten books of this series. It began well, and was quite interesting. It had an creative story and well- developed characters that really held my attention. Sadly, that was about five books ago. Since then it's been filled with tangential story lines of secondary and tertiary characters that I simply could not care less about. I began skipping entire chapters that were read by Kate Reading- not because of her performance, but because I finally noticed how poorly the women are written. It seems the author, aside from apparently being paid by the number of lesser character backstories, writes female characters as either damsels pining for absent love, controlling shrews who struggle to reign in their emotions, or manipulative immoral schemers. All of whom seem designed to deliberately torture their men.

    And honestly, the entire story could be whittled down. I'm hearing the same conversations repeated; the same arguments brought up and ignored. Plot points come and go with no progress towards a resolution of this story.

    I just want to know what happens to the original group from Two Rivers, and maybe Loyal, and that's it! Unless I find some spoilers online, I may never know, because I won't spend another dime on this unraveled and tortuous tale.

    IMHO, The Wheel of Time would have made an excellent five-book series, rather than this mediocre meandering, directionless, and frankly, indulgent, neverending story.

    Kommt ewig nicht zur Sache und treibt die Handlung nicht voran

    Es dauert 15 Stunden bis endlich mal die Handlung des vorigen Buches weiter geschrieben wird. So versumpft Crossroads of Twilight im klein-klein und die Hauptcharaktere entfremden sich zunehmend vom Leser/in.
    Schade. Da hätte mehr draus werden können.
