My thoughts : I have to admit I bought this book only to read Richelle Mead's Homecoming novella. I actually only read two of the stories (Mead's and Simone Elkles') because I haven't read the series of the other authors and I didn't want to get spoilers as I plan to read their books in the future ...
Simone Elkeles' novella was pretty cute but I was a bit disappointed because for some reason I was expecting to read something about the Fuentes brothers. Like I said, her short story was nice but a bit to cheesy .. I liked the characters but that's not the kind of story you tell through a novella (as everything happened way too fast) but rather with a novel I guess.
I had been dying to read Mead's story ever since I heard of it !! The Vampire Academy series is my favourite YA series ever : I absolutely adore Rose and Dimitri so of course I couldn't wait to get my hands on this novella.
I really enjoyed it even if I was expecting something way more awesome, but I thought it was good ... Honestly even if it had sucked I'd have loved it only because it featured Dimitri and Rose. I can't tell more about it because it would be way too easy giving spoilers. I strongly advise you to read the Vampire Academy series !!!
I don't know if Foretold is a book I'd recommend to buy. It was a bit expensive for me as I only read 2 of the 14 stories but I guess if you're interested in reading most of the short stories, it would make sense to buy a copy :).
