Now in development for TV!

Since its debut in 1990, The Wheel of Time#65533; by Robert Jordan has captivated millions of readers 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.

Fleeing from Ebou Dar with the kidnapped Daughter of the Nine Moons, whom he is fated to marry, Mat Cauthon learns that he can neither keep her nor let her go, not in safety for either of them, 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, 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.

In Andor, Elayne Trakland 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.

TV series update: "Sony will produce along with Red Eagle Entertainment and Radar Pictures. Rafe Judkins is attached to write and executive produce. Judkins previously worked on shows such as ABC's "Agents of SHIELD," the Netflix series "Hemlock Grove," and the NBC series "Chuck." Red Eagle partners Rick Selvage and Larry Mondragon will executive produce along with Radar's Ted Field and Mike Weber. Darren Lemke will also executive produce, with Jordan's widow Harriet McDougal serving as consulting producer." -- Variety

Haven't read this one. Read most of the series and love big thick reads, but gave up. Too much repetition. Read somewhere his wife was his editor and if it's true, it shows. Don't remember the characters name, but she was always pulling at her braid. Good detail every once in a while, but it came up every time she was in a scene. Ok, we get it - she pulls her braid when she's upset! Don't have to tell us every other page!

Was disappointed in this book in the series. I love the series but the author uses ridiculous names for character's and he never solves the main 3 male characters problems in this book. I think if you skip this book in the series, you'd not miss much.

Very slow book with a lot of useless descriptives that dont add anything. A bit of a bore!

Not the high point of the series. Although the plot began to drag over the past few books, Crossroads of Twilight brings the plot to an almost complete halt. Eight-hundred pages of checking in with each character, seeing that nothing has happened, but that everyone's getting ready. Without any progress in the plot to distract, Robert Jordan's writing tics (over-elaborate descriptions of food and dress; repetition of the same sniffing, shawl twitching, braid-tugging, etc. gestures; all the male characters complaining about how bizarre women are and vice versa) really start to grate. Fortunately, the plot finally picks up again in the next book, giving you something to look forward to.

Easily the worst book of the series. Nothing happens!
