After reading the "Wheel of Time" series by Robert Jordan, I don't understand why book 10 was named "Crossroads of Twilight." I don't remember there being any sort of crossroads in this book whatsoever. Why is the book named this? Is there something I missed while reading?
The crossroad (of the title) is mentioned in the intro to the book:
"And it shall come to pass, in the days when the Dark Hunt rides, when the right hand falters and the left hand strays, that mankind shall come to the Crossroads of Twilight and all that is, all that was, and all that will be shall balance on the point of a sword, while the winds of the Shadow grow."
From the Prophecies of the Dragon; translation believed done by Jain Charin, known as Jain Farstrider, shortly before his disappearance.
The publisher marketing blurb states that:
"In the tenth book of the Wheel of Time from the New York Times #1 bestselling author Robert Jordan, the world and the characters stand at a crossroads, and the world approaches twilight, when the power of the Shadow grows stronger."
