… she is going through the trials, Feyre is beaten past her breaking point. She’s barely holding on to any semblance of sanity, and she pushes through, knowing that whatever the outcome is for her won’t be pretty. There’s too much riding on her success for Feyre to give up, even though all she wants is to give in to the darkness. These scenes were truly horrific, and they seem to be setting up a rivalry between Tam and Rhys in the next book. I’m going to go out on a limb here and come out real early for Team Rhys. There is a lot of effort here to make Tamlin seem self-sacrificing and Feyre’s true love. Instead, he comes off as controlling and weak, making the decisions for everyone around him without giving them all of the information. When Feyre needs help going through the trials, the only one who takes any risks to help her is Rhysand, and he’s the only reason she retains any semblance of sanity. Team Rhys!
