OK, I know this has been done many times before, especially on the Erikson board, but still, I'm quite curious about which volume of the saga is your favourite and why? Personally, I don't agree with the usual choice - that is, the Deadhouse Gates was my least fav novel. I read The Gardens of the Moon back in 2000, and reread it 2 or three times before finally I read the entire 5 novels in a row last month. And still GotM is my favourite, mostly because of its complexity. I especially loved the beginning. My second fav would be the Midnight Tides. As for the MOI - it was great, but I was quite angry with the ending, also because I wanted more Genabackis novels, I prefer that setting to the 7 Cities one.
