OH!! OMG OMG. How on earth did it happen that I didn't know about this?! Jesus. I mean, I knew Richelle Mead said she would write a short story about Dimitri and Rose going to Russia, but hell I didn't know it was out already! Damn. I feel like the worst fan ever.

Rose Hathaway, I've missed you like crazy!! <3 <3 Reading this short story felt like a balsam for my soul. Literally. I think Rose will be my favourite character forever. God, I wish she was real and she was my best friend. Though, she is my best friend even if she isn't "real". But she'll always feel real to me, in my heart. 

In this short story Rose and Dimitri went to Russia to visit his family. It the first time they visit after Dimitri was restored to dhampir. And he is so so cute!! I've missed him too. And his family, they were so happy.. awww. 

Rose is still the badass Rose. Her sarcasm hasn't vanished! She is still the same Rose like always :) 

“Of course they’ll be glad,” I assured him, marveling at the change in our relationship. I’d started off as his student, in need of his reassurance. I’d graduated to become his lover and equal. “They know we’re coming. Hell, you should’ve seen the party they threw when they thought you were dead, comrade. Imagine what they’ll do when they find out you’re actually alive.”
A debate then broke out between the three of us over who would lead and who would go last to carry a lantern. Dimitri and Mark came up with lame arguments about why they should go ahead of me. Mark’s was that, as the oldest, his life was more expendable, which was ridiculous. Dimitri’s reasoning was that he was safe, thanks to Yeva’s prophecy. That was even more ridiculous, and I knew he was only saying so to protect me. Yet in the end, I was overruled and ended up behind them.

Know that I am rating only the Homecoming short story. I haven't read the whole book :P But I was dying to read this one, and it didn't disappoint one little bit, because it was just that awesome!
