As the title says... what is your favorite volume from the series and why? This has shifted for me. On my first reading it was The Great Hunt. Ingtar's betrayal stunned me yet seemed so realistic. Also the introduction of the Seanchan seemed critical and the legend of the horn being fulfilled through Mat. It seemed to set the agenda for so much of what was to follow. I'm only on volume 11 of my reread... but I think it will be Towers of Midnight.... which was probably my close second... as Egewene who has become probably my favorite character is at her height there.
