❝Dimitri was created to be Rose’s balance. She’s so impulsive and needs someone who can teach her calm and reason. So, that’s where his personality came from.❞

I’d said it before and meant it: Alive or undead, the love of my life was a badass.
15 Days of Rozka Day Ten: Most heartbreaking scene?
“But not close enough. Three Strigoi lay in wait in one of the alcoves. We’d passed them, but they’d let us go by. It all happened so fast; no one could have reacted in time. One of the Strigoi grabbed Celeste, his mouth and fangs going for her cheek. I heard a strangled scream and saw blood everywhere. One of the Strigoi went for Ms. Carmack, but my mother jerked her away and shoved her forward toward us.
The third Strigoi grabbed Dimitri. In all the time I’d known him, I’d never seen Dimitri falter. He was always faster, always stronger than everyone else. Not this time. This Strigoi had caught him by surprise, and that slight edge was all it had taken.
I stared. It was the blond Strigoi. The one who had spoken to me in the battle.
He grabbed Dimitri and pulled him to the ground. They grappled, strength against strength, and then I saw those fangs sink into Dimitri’s neck. The red eyes flicked up and made contact with my own.
I heard another scream—this time, it was my own.”

“Ten feet from the car, a man stepped directly into our path. We came to a screeching halt, and I jerked Lissa back by her arm. It was him, the guy I’d seen across the street watching me. He was older than us, maybe mid-twenties, and as tall as I’d figured, probably six-six or six-seven. And under different circumstances – say, when he wasn’t holding up our desperate escape – I would have thought he was hot. Shoulder-length brown hair, tied back in a short ponytail. Dark brown eyes. A long brown coat – a duster, I thought it was called.
But his hotness was irrelevant now. He was only an obstacle keeping Lissa and me away from the car and our freedom. The footsteps behind us slowed, and I knew our pursuers had caught up. Off to the sides, I detected more movement, more people closing in. God. They’d almost sent a dozen guardians to retrieve us. I couldn’t believe it. The queen herself didn’t travel with that many.”

Day 27: Something you wish didn’t happen but did.
I think that the Dimka becomes a strigoi was one of the saddest things that happened in the book. I remember when I had read that he would transform into Strigoi and I still had barely arrived in this part and at the same time I was thinking that this could not happen, but it happened. I was sad, but if not was happen it, we never have one continuation so perfect.
