If anyone has read 'Fever Pitch' by Nick Hornby (an excellent book, I'd give it at least 4 stars were I reviewing it) there's a section in there where he's describing his feelings as an Arsenal fan in the 70s, when Arsenal were not bad enough to get relegated yet not good enough to win anything. He describes the resulting stasis as being terrible. I'm not a football fan yet, reading the 'Wheel of Time' series, I know what he means.
This book has been long awaited by anyone who's read the last nine, something Jordan must be aware of. Even the most diehard fans (and I'm one of them) must be wanting Jordan to get on with it, to advance the plot a little. This book doesn't do that. There are sections dealing with Perrin, Mat, Egwene, Elayne and (briefly) Rand himself, but none of them really take the story anywhere. Perrin starts out on a search & rescue mission for Faile and by the end of the book he's still on a search & rescue mission for Faile, Mat is trying to leave Seanchan territory and still is at the end of the book, the siege of Tar Valon and the choosing of the Queen of Andor go precisely nowhere and Rand does nothing of significance. 680 pages and hardly anything happens.
To be fair, it does seem, in all the above cases, as if something is about to happen (in fact the Egwene and Mat storylines do have significant events happen right at the end, but even these just set up a situation for the next volume to deal with), so volume 11 may well have a lot of action in it. But I would have liked some here, I've been waiting over a year after all. Even if it meant the book being longer, I don't mind 1100 page novels, in fact I quite like them.

Having spent over £150 on the series so far, and having thoroughly enjoyed the earlier books in the series for the fresh new world and characters RJ brought to life, I like many others am now in the position that buying each book is now a certainty if just to know how it turns out, and for the expenditure so far to not have been a complete waste.
Unfortunately this now seems to entail buying books which really arent up to scratch. I wont include any spoilers, for the main reason there isnt anything to include. In essense, not a lot happens - there is build up for things to happen later, but over 600 pages of unneccessary detail, and Aes Sedai saying 'what was all that channeling?' per end of book 9.
If you've got this far in the series, you're going to buy the books anyway....but wait for the paperback. For what you're going to receive in this book, paying even the paperback price is too high. Detailed characterisation is good, but for less than minor charatcers ? And only about 4 chapters on Rand....its not as if hes important to the story or anything.
Be prepared for a very long haul for the end of the Wheel of Time. If CoT is anything to go by, we'll be lucky to see it concluded by book 20, as each book now covers only a couple of days in the worlds timeline. Hopefully RJ will get back to form soon, but in the meantime try Steven Erikson's series Malazan Book of the Fallen - after WoT you'll find it harder to get to grips with since it packs in more plots, twists and action into one chapter than WoT now gets in an entire book, and reading the two series one after the other WoT now comes a very poor second.
But you'll buy the book anyway, like I did.

Well, I am a big fan of WoT and have read and re-read the series several times. The standard of writing in Crossroads of Twilight is of Jordan's usual high quality with descriptions, characters, and places all vividly portrayed in his unique style.
However, while all of this is enjoyable, unfortuately nothing of note happens in this book. I mean, absolutely nothing. The one major event of the story occurs on the very last page, leaving the reader hanging in a dreary Empire Strikes Back kind of way.
I had heard rumors that Jordan planned on finishing the series in 12 books but if he keeps up at this pace, it will never end!
I will keep reading as long as Jordan keeps writing but we may all be old and gray by the time he ever gets round to gathering together all of the threads, old and new, he keeps weaving.

I rapt with Jordan's rich and complex description of the seating arrangements at a meeting of the Hall in Exile. Many pages were devoted to these seating arrangements about who sat near who and who was surprised, unnerved or unaware of these arrangements. I'm sure after several more books of trivial facts I will learn who these people are and why their seating arrangements are so important.
I was equally rapt about the many pages devoted to the adjustment of clothing such as shawls and skirts.
Just as interesting were the chapters on characters sitting around wondering what to do next. Almost as interesting as the large parties of old and new characters travelling to unknown destinations on an unknown timetable for unknown reasons.
There is a major mistep in this book where the tracks of a group of hell hounds appear. Fortunately the creatures were not sighted and did not go near any characters narrowly avoiding the jarring intrusion of action or suspense into an otherwise pleasant book.
Some people have claimed this book is a setup for book 11. This is incorrect. The blurb on the back cover of this book is a setup for book 11, the contents of this book do not really expand on the blurb and are not a requirement for moving on to book 11.
