What were you favourite moments? Were they heartbreaking? Epic? What is the most memorable moment to you?

They all stick in my mind as well, along with so many more.

One of my favourites is definitely:

(view spoiler)

I think that moment made me cry, along with a multitude of other moments that made me weep in sorrow and shout in glee.

There are so many epic moments and wicked scenes.

Ruin contains the best duel I have EVER read, (view spoiler)


Eon ♒Windrunner♒   (eonwindrunner) | 24 comments I have to agree on the duel. Definitely the best I have read up to now.

An extremely satisfying moment!

Jim Robinson (jimbowan) | 6 comments So many amazing moments, a few of the absolute best captured above. All the best contain spoilers so sorry this will be hard to follow unless you've read the books and uncover the spoilers!

I cried like I haven't in years when I read this moment :(view spoiler)

Also the scene where(view spoiler) I was blubbering like a pre-teen schoolboy.

Honestly the emotions this series pulled out of me was unbelievable. I always think the best movies and books are ones that cause an emotional reaction from the viewer/reader and that's why this series will claim it's place as one of the best I ever read.

The duel!!! I had forgot about that, OMG I could not breathe during that scene I was filled with horror at what I thought was going to happen and then it was replaced with joy! :)

So many scenes I liked I could probably go on forever.

Same here Jim. So many great scenes! Emotional turmoil is an understatement for all those scenes you mentioned.

Oh man reading thee gave me serious goosebumps. Feeling the need for a re-read!

That duel is INCREDIBLE. I've never read anything like it. I've tried to recreate it in the garden, but even my dog Potter seems to beat me... :D

Soooo goood! Definitely in a league of it's own. Lol at Potter beating you :D

Kyle  Gilbert | 4 comments My favorite moment is a bit of a sombre one tbh.... It was when Storm got injured and Corban got carried away hearing Storm howling in pain.... I knew I was properly sucked into the books then... I've not been so distraught by an animal in pain since Hedwig got the chop in Harry Potter when i was kid *cringe*

A moment of utter despair. Feel so hopeless at that moment, but have to continue reading...

Oh man. THAT moment. I have never been more anguished in a book than that horrible moment. In fact, I sent Mr Gwynne a very strongly worded email, lol. He was so cool though. :D

Couldn't agree more, Corban is my favourite character, I think he always will be
