I am currently on my first re-read of the series and just finished KoD (in one week) and... it might be my absolute favorite book in the series. So many epic moments and plot ties! SPOILERS ahead!!! . . . . . Galad vs Valda: What a way to start the books! All the rage I felt at what happened to Morgase was depicted with Galad's challenge and defeat of Valda. Very gratifying. The Golden Crane: Already a top moment in the series. I could read it again and again. Tuon/Mat courting: I know RJ has gotten grief about his portrayal of romance/courting(or lack thereof) in the books. Mat and Tuon are a huge exception in my opinion. You can really see the budding and development of their relationship. "You may kiss me now Toy". Rand losing his hand: Ahhh! He's so cold! Like stone... steel. Egwene begins to infiltrate the Tower: My favorite arc and story in the books. This begins it all! Tam returns!: Yay! Faile and Perrin reunite: FINALLY! Galina is broken: Justice Elayne gets the throne & captures the Black Ajah: Damn! Tuon marries Mat, Mat is Prince of the Ravens: Bloody Matrim Cauthon is my Husband One epic thing after another.
