    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH THE SEANCHAN BATTLE IN THE TOWER WAS SO GOOD :yay:omg

    (Please no spoilers past the end of the book, that's as far as I've gotten.)

    (Egwene's raising to the For Reals Amyrlin Seat was also awesome!!)

    (And Elaida puking off a to'raken was a Joffrey-level satisfying moment!!!)

    Right?!?! I LOVED that battle - it was one of my very favorite scenes in the entire series. EGWENE was AMAZING. <3

    Egwene fangirl corner, right here, for sure! I always look ahead for her next POV chapter every time I finish one so I know how long I have to wait. :lol

    @Bracken I also just finished the book! That battle at the tower was amazing! Once I got to that part I couldn't put the book down.

    When Tam told Cadsuane off, I just applauded him. I hope to see more Tam in the future!

    YES! I don't get the Egwene haters, and while reading tGS I felt so proud of her! I even e-mailed Brandon Sanderson about it after I read it and got a response not long after the book came out :geek

    That's my favourite line in the series. I like to think that was Brandon Sanderson tellng us what he really thought of her

    Oh that's a good way to think of it. I kept waiting for someone - anyone - to do it. The fact that it was Tam just felt so right.

    Right? Every time an Aes Sedai manipulates someone she could just talk to it makes me want to pull my hair out.
