Fleeing from Ebou Dar, Mat Cauthon learns that he can neither keep his betrothed nor let her go. Perrin Aybara seeks to free his wife, Faile, a captive of the. “Has all the breadth and depth that have made this fantasy author one of the acknowledged greats of this genre.” —Publishers Weekly on Crossroads of Twilight.
By my own admission above, however, I am biased. I know that readers feel that this book was too slow. The novel has one and a half stars on site and one star is the lowest possible. I realize this, logically, but I have trouble seeing it myself.
Jordan chose to jump back in time and show the timeframe in Book Nine over and over again from different viewpoints. However, this has always been one of the features of the series, and I—as a writer—was very interested in the format of this book.
I find myself growing more and more interested in his plot, and am picking him as my favorite character of late. As a side note, however, I feel that the covers for this one and book nine are reversed. Book Nine was more important to Mat, and this book is more important to Perrin.
Yet the covers imply the opposite. I digress. In truth, I have a lot of trouble understanding what people found boring about this book, yet at the same time exciting about Book Ten.
The two—like all of the recent books in the series—very much seem to be chapters in a much longer book, all blending together and flowing as one. But, once again, Perrin has always been one of my favorites, if not my favorite, characters in the book. To get the free app, enter your mobile phone number.

Knife of Dreams: The Gathering Storm: Winter's Heart: The Path of Daggers: Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly The eagerly awaited 10th installment after 's Winter's Heart in Jordan's monumental Wheel of Time has all the breadth and depth that have made this fantasy author one of the acknowledged greats of the genre.
Like Tolkien's Ring trilogy, Wheel of Time is a single, extended novel rather than a series, and in Crossroads, new characters join the cast and old favorites grow ever more complex. Yet if the scope of Jordan's richly nuanced creation has won him millions of readers, it also forms the saga's biggest obstacle.
Here Mat Cauthon is still fleeing the Seanchan; Perrin Goldeneyes still hunts the Shaido to free his beautiful wife, Faile; the cities Caemlyn and Tar Valon are still besieged and the battles have not been joined.
Those impatient with the glacial movement of the last four books will find more of the same. As the title suggests, this entry represents a turning point, a time of momentous decisions as the rebel Aes Sedai consider an alliance with the Asha'man and Rand ponders a truce with the Seanchan. She twists Mat around her finger, deliberately annoying him by calling him "Toy.
Jordan fans who miss the breakneck pace of the earlier books can always hope the action will pick up again. Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc. The Wheel of Time continues to turn slowly and purposely in the tenth novel in Jordan's popular, epic series. Jordan follows his well-established pattern of tracking the activities of his widely spread characters as he moves them inexorably toward the looming Final Battle between the Dark One and those who oppose it. In this story, Mat flees with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, whom he is fated to marry, pursued by the army of the Seanchan Empire as well as by the Dark One.
Perrin is trying to rescue his wife, Faile, from the Shaido. The Aes Sadai must be reunited to defend against the Dark One. And Rand al' Thor, the Dragon Reborn, faces his own demons, even though he has managed to cleanse the Dark One's taint from the males who can channel.
As usual, Jordan's canvas is vast and his plotting intricate.
Each of the many characters is as distinctively recognizable as any of those in the series' other volumes, while on all fronts, intrigues and dangers intensify. Must-reading for Jordan's huge and faithful following.

Everyone dithers about. That is basically the entire plot of this book explained in one short sentence. I have read a lot of books in my day, and have read countless reviews calling a book boring, or giving the accusation that "nothing happens". Usually it is hyperbole, but in this case it is the honest truth. Almost nothing happens in this book. Now, if you read the series up to this point, you know you will read this.
But you really don't need to.
If you DO want to save several hours of your life, though, let me spoil the whole book in a few blurbs and I'm not even worried about offending anyone with spoilers because non of this is ground breaking enough to anger anyone that they were "spoiled". You can pick up the next volume Knife of Dreams, in which things do finally start moving forward again and not skip a beat. Perrin- finds the camp Faile is being held at by the Shaido.
Goes and downloads grain in a creepy town which ironically is about the most exciting chapter this book has. The most exciting chapter in the whole book is about downloading grain.
Oh yes, the Seanchan want to talk to him as it ends. Elaine- dithers about in Caemlyn with a bunch of annoying bickering royals and followers, while feeling hormonal because she is pregnant.
Some outside forces plot against her, but Nothing happens. Mat- is dithering about while traveling with Luca's circus, gets to know Tuon a little, otherwise nothing happens. Rand- gets like 2 mere chapters here after cleansing saidin in the last book which should be an earth-shattering thing, but almost no acknowledgement is given in this book.
Basically just spends time lying low, dithering about, and brooding as usual on how hard he needs to be. Nothing happens. Egwene and the aes sedai- they dither about outside of Tar Valon, trying to figure out what to do to take the White Tower with minimal bloodshed.
Book Ten of 'The Wheel of Time'
The other Aes Sedai are all as horrible and condescending as usual. Nothing happens until the very end, when she is suddenly kidnapped which is basically the only real thing that happens in this book that moves the plot forward- but no joke, this happens suddenly in the last pages of the book and ends here.
Its not like its well written, or an exciting sequence- it just happens suddenly. And the book ends.
Previous books have usually ended with a big Rand chapter where he does something huge and world changing- conquers a nation, attacks a forsaken, big battle, etc. Nothing like that happens here. These are still the characters you know and love or not. They are richly written, and in the end, you do get to spend more time with them, and their wants, worries, and aspirations.
I'll give two starts for this. But nothing happens. If you go into a book and expect it to have a clear plot- beginning, middle, and end, if you will, you don't find it here. Even a book ddle part of a long series, generally at least has some kind of unique theme, adventure, set of events, or a particular adversary that it deals with which makes it a unique story. There is nothing of the sort here. Quite simply Everyone Dithers About. The End.
Crossroads of Twilight
So there you have it- Crossroads of Twilight. site Edition Verified download. If you've read the previous books you know what you're getting with Robert Jordan.
You know his long winded style, his description of every single person in the room with lengthy backstory and usually involved in the story later on as well.
Marvelously intricate and the world he creates is as deep as the ocean and well described. And you love it if you are here at book ten.I digress.
Set up a giveaway. Book Nine of The Wheel of Time. 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, for 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. That left me being able to write the opening paragraph to chapter one.
