I was kinda of dreading Toll The Hounds on my first read as I only started the series shortly after the Crippled God was released and had heard it was most people's least favorite at the time, but I ended up really liking it. It was different sure, but I was able to appreciate the slow burn. My least favorite of the main series was between Dust of Dreams and House of Chains. I haven't read the series in about 4 years (gearing up for a reread soon) but I remember the key moments in most of the books, those two though I can't remember much of anything other than the fact that House of Chains had Karsa for the first quarter of the book. Thankfully I didn't have to deal with the wait between Dust of Dreams and The Crippled God that would not have been pleasant.
