    I am fangirl, hear me roar.No, really. I'm not kidding. Me, the one who likes to slap people who squeal too much. We all have our weaknesses which will turn us into a crazed fangirl. Dimitri Belikov is mine. Oh how I love that Russian.I promise that I will read the Laini Taylor short story (and maybe check out a couple others), but it's no secret that the only reason I had to get my hands on this book was for the extra helping of my Dimka in the ...

    I just can't wait for Rose and Dimitri the Stigroi's story. I hope so much that it is being released in Australia!

    **Only read Richelle Mead's Homecoming**Rose and Dimitri...isn't that the only thing that matters? and it was even better because they went back to Dimitri's hometown to see his family and for them to see him...alive and not a Strigoi. All of Dimitri's family makes me laugh and I loved how Rose still fit right in. I couldn't get enough of the little looks between Rose and Dimitri and they just fit...perfectly. Of course, they have to go on a Stri...
  • Miriam Mathew
    We all wanted an epilogue to Rose and Dimitri’s story. We all wanted more after the stunning conclusion that was Last Sacrifice and Richelle Mead? She bloody gave it to us like the amazing author that she is!!Homecoming was written in typical Richelle Mead fashion. It was:Snarky.Action-filledHumorous.And generally, FRICKING AMAZING!!The characters were no less wonderful. Rose remained the kick-ass, smart-mouthed heroine that she was. Dimitri ke...

    I've read many short stories before and I really can't wait to read these. Some of the most well-known authors are taking part in this collaboration. It's also edited by Carrie Ryan, the author of The Forest of Hands and Teeth. Other authors who are contributing include (and some of their famous works): Heather BrewerThe Chronicles of Vladimir TodSaundra Mitchell The Vespertine series Richelle Mead The Vampire Academy series Simone Elkeles Perfec...

    A Dimitri quote from foretold *madwomen squeal*"I haven’t even really tried to win you over, Roza. When I want to, I can be very persuasive.”*Actual review*You can find more reviews at These Flying PagesSo I only really read this for the short story Homecoming by Richelle Mead. I've practically been waiting for this forever. So, you can imagine my disappointment when I started reading eagerly and turned the page after about thirty minutes and...

    CAN'T WAIT!There is a total of 14 stories with the theme, prophecy and prediction. I'm going to write a short review to each of these stories and give it a rating. The final rating will be the weighted rating of all these stories.1. Gentleman Send Phantoms by Laini TaylorIt's about three girls who are waiting for the phantom of the man that they are going to marry on St. Faith's Day. St. Faith's Day is a special day where a girl can lure forth th...

    How could I possibly resist the opportunity for more Dimitri Belikov. Easy, I couldn’t! And so I bought the entire Foretold: 14 Tales of Prophecy and Prediction compilation JUST to read 40 pages of Dimitri and Rose, and I really enjoyed it. Taking place a few weeks after the end of Last Sacrifice, this little story shows us Dimitri’s return home to Siberia to visit his family after the dramatic events at the end of the Vampire Academy series....
  • Kim
    *THIS REVIEW IS FOR RICHELLE MEAD'S 'HOMECOMING' ONLY* Wow, that's all I can say right about now. Revisiting the Vampire Academy world is not a new thing these days, what with the Bloodlines series continuing the VA adventures; but revisiting in the mind of Rose Hathaway - AMAZING! I had been missing Rose's voice for so long. The brief glimpses we've had of her in Bloodlines were not enough to keep my need for more Rose from making me go insane. ...
  • M.
    I simply loath this type of commercial stunt. Why couldn't the short story about Rose and Dimitri be either sold separately or given for free? It's very common for renowned authors to write short stories and present them to their readers as a sort of thank you. But unfortunately there are those who are too greedy and they want to milk it till no end. One more point against Richelle and the team behind her.

    4.5/5 stars Dimitri smiled and put his arm around me. "Don't you believe in fate, Roza?" This was incredibly adorable and answered a lot of questions I've had for years about people's reactions to Dimitri. I loved everything about this snippet, the adorable way that Rose and Dimitri interacted, the little actions scenes and the heartfelt family reunion. My only complaint is that everything was a little too short, I wished to be able to see more i...

    I don't care what anyone says, Rose and Dimitri are the BEST YA couple EVER! This short story has me craving for more Romitri. Reading about them, secure in their relationship was just amazing. Made me so happy. Thank you Richelle for creating such beautiful characters, and please continue to give us more of their story.

  • Jo ★The Book Sloth★
    We are first introduced to Dimitri's family in Blood Promise(which is my favorite book in the series where Rose is concerned), when Rose visits them in the hopes of finding clues on Dimitri's whereabouts after he was turned. In that book we get a glimpse of how "blood-whore" communities work, which is nothing like one would expect by all of Rose's prejudice.In this short story Dimitri and Rose go to Siberia for a visit about two weeks after the e...

    I absolutely loved this! I just found out about this today, and it's a great short story with Rose and Dimitri. When I found about this I was like:I really like this because in the last book, I was wondering why no one had contacted Dimitri's family and this wrapped things up nicely. It's hilarious, still action-packed, and just really sweet. I actually found myself crying because I really miss my favorite duo. Hats off to Richelle Mead for a gre...

    Since I'm a fan of Rose and Dimitri, both as separate characters and as a couple, I was very excited about 'Homecoming'. It's a very short novella, and it takes place after all the events that happened in the sixth installment of 'Vampire Academy' series 'Last Sacrifice'.Rose and Dimitri go to his hometown Baia in Siberia, to inform and prove to Dimitri's family that he's no longer a strigoi. Naturally, all the relatives are happy about the news,...
