Crossroads of Twilight (abbreviated as CoT by fans) is the tenth book of The Wheel of Time series. It was published by Tor Books and released on January 7, 2003. Upon its release, it immediately rose to the #1 position on the New York Times hardcover fiction bestseller list, making it the third Wheel of Time book to reach the #1 position on that list. It remained on the list for the next three months. It is 846 pages long. Mat is fleeing Ebou Dar with Valan Luca’s traveling circus, with Tuon, the kidnapped Seanchan princess, in tow. He knows he’s destined to marry her, but he can’t figure her out. Perrin is marshaling his forces to rescue Faile, who was taken by the Shaido Aiel and is serving as gai’shain to Sevanna in the captured town of Malden, and plotting her own escape. Egwene has both literal and figurative headaches, has Traveled the rebel Aes Sedai to Murandy, and is making plans to re-take Tar Valon, although it’s not clear what the plans actually are until the very last chapter, when (surprise!) they go badly wrong. Elayne is pregnant and is tired of drinking goat’s milk or weak tea and generally being coddled and is trying to secure her claim to the throne of Andor, but support for House Trakand is thin on the ground. Rand is… in the book? He doesn’t actually do much of anything in this book other than listen to Loial’s report on the Ogier and the Waygates, although we learn that despite having cleansed the Dark One’s taint from saidin, Rand’s still getting sick when he seizes the power. Everyone is freaking out about the blaze of the One Power from Rand cleaning saidin at the end of the previous book, but no one really does anything about it or believes it if they hear that the male half of the source is now clean.
