Review Crossroads of Twilight (The Wheel of Time #10)

crossroads of twilight book cover

I loves Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time books, starting Crossroads of Twilight felt like coming back to an old friend but also discovering something new. After exploring the big world of Randland in the earlier books, I couldn’t wait to see what happens next in this amazing story.

Robert Jordan’s storytelling skills keep impressing readers. He paints a vivid world that feels real, thanks to all the careful planning he’s done throughout the series. The characters are what really make the story interesting. They each have their own stories to tell and points of view to share. Whether it’s the mysterious Rand al’Thor or the determined Egwene al’Vere, their growth and complexity show just how talented Jordan is at creating believable characters.

This book does a great job of showing what happens because of things that happened before. The characters have to deal with the results of their actions, which makes them change and grow a lot. Jordan handles their feelings and thoughts really well, so we can understand why they do what they do and see how they’re coping with everything that’s happened.

In Crossroads of Twilight, power struggles are a big deal. Leaders are always trying to get more power, and the Aes Sedai, especially, are playing a complicated game of politics. Jordan makes things even more intense by showing how dangerous it can be when people want too much control. It’s a reminder that ambition can cause a lot of problems if it’s not kept in check.

But, there are some parts of the book that might be hard for readers. Sometimes, the story moves slowly, which might make even the most dedicated fans a bit impatient. The author takes his time to tell the story, which can make it feel like it’s not going anywhere sometimes. However, if you really like getting lost in a detailed world, you might not mind the slow pace because it helps build that world even more.

Crossroads of Twilight shows how dedicated Jordan is to telling a big and detailed story. Some readers might find the slow pace a bit boring, but the way he develops the characters and explores power struggles makes it worth reading. I know it’s hard to keep a long series exciting, so I can see the effort Jordan puts into his storytelling. It’s clear he’s setting things up for some big moments in the future books.
