Mini Review: Adrian's Lost Chapter by Richelle Mead

So, do you remember Bloodlines? That was an awesome book, wasn't it?
 Fans of Richelle Mead's work and those who have read Bloodlines will undoubtedly know that that book was written in the point of view of Sydney Sage, a character that we got the opportunity to meet near the end of the Vampire Academy series. However, Richelle Mead originally planned to have each chapter of Bloodlines narrated by a different character, in the fourth person. 
This proved to create too many complications and she instead settled to have the story told from Sydney's point of view. 
This is an exert from the original plan of Bloodlines, the first chapter, told in the POV of the witty character of Adrian Ivashkov. 
I've included a link below where you can go to read the eight page long chapter for yourself, if you haven't already.
 It's surprisingly good and I really enjoyed reading it!

Please leave comments, I would love to hear opinions! 



  1. Sydney Sage is a character with whom I can relate: studious, reserved, socially awkward, and yet unintentionally funny in her naivete. She doesn't have vampire powers, luscious beauty, dhampir strength, a soul mate (yet!) or a shadow-kissed bond, but she does have her wits and she's learning (slowly) to stand up for herself. Familiar faces emerge: Adrian, Jillian, Eddie, the terrible, horrible, awesome Zmey. Rose has a brief cameo as well, but she's definitely not the focus of this book.

  2. Always a pleasure to find a new Vampire Academy fan, have you had the chance to read Adrian's Lost Chapter? There is a link in my review, if you're interested. Thanks for commenting, always love to get a second opinion. :)
