Recommends it for: VA and Bloodlines fans
This was supposed to be part of Bloodlines, but instead of Adrian's POV, Richelle went with Sydney's.

I don't mind Sydney in the least. I love her, but this chapter breaks my heart. I ADORE ADRIAN! And seeing him sad breaks my heart.

I cannot wait for his happily-ever-after. No one deserves it more.

The chapter was fucking awful— Adrian wasn't even in character, as if some personality black hole came and sucked it out of him like a goddamn Dementor. Additionally, the inconsistencies were apparent— Mead doesn't even know her own characters or the information that she established about them initially. Adrian was said to be 22, but he was celebrating his 21st Birthday? Really? She doesn't know details of a SECONDARY character. Also, what is Jill's real element? Is it water or air?

THIS DESCRIBES IT ALL. Except, replace the cardboard cutout of Edward with Adrian.

Honestly, what exactly was the purpose of this chapter? To give us an insight of a highly lecherous pseudo relationship between Adrian and Jill? To make us hate the one true pairing that has finally made it in the book? To make us angry and hate the awesome books written before that are the basics and sometimes the only reason I would even sacrifice ten minutes to read this?

Note to the Author,
I have adored your work in the past years. I have fallen in love with Dimitri, I have been with Rose fro

Blah. I hate Jill, I hate Rose and Dimitri and I hate Adrian acting like a retard. -.-
Jill, if you ever try to be with Adrian... I am gonna cut you into pieces and give it to the bears, who may also vomit. [poor bears]
Jill is fifteen. Adrian is twenty-one. SIX freaking years difference.
Seven pages of pure torture.

This original beginning can be found here.

This was the original opening chapter for Bloodlines written in Adrian's POV that Richelle Mead ultimately scrapped and I have to ask.....why? Lord why?

I understand that the actual opener found in the book sets the stage for the rest of the book and gives us our first glimpse into Sydney's head, but this one was so much better.Perhaps it's just because it's Adrian (hehe) but having a glimpse into the working's of his mind and seeing this from his POV wa
I don't really know what to say about this... Really it was only one short chapter, therefore, there's not much to really go on. It was kinda nice getting into the mind of Adrian but basically, it was just him self-medicating, pouting over Rose, and having a conversation with Jill. That pretty much sums it all up. Guess I was just hoping for something more interesting, something that actually added to the Vampire Academy series that I love so much! But, it didn't and honestly, it was pointless. ...more

Awww...Adrian my poor baby :(
I kept waiting for the mention of Rose to see how he feels. :(
I love the fact that he is taking care of Jill. It's sweet.

My heart is hurting. I want to cry for Adrian because he really loved Rose and now his heart is broken. I'm happy that Rose is with Dimitri, but I like Adrian too and he is suffering very much. I hope he will forget Rose and he will find the love in another place, maybe with Sydney. Jill is cute too, but I don't think she will be with Adrian, even if she has feelings for him. Anyway, Adrian wants to protect her and Jill doesn't have a good life at all. It's not fair to be overshadowed by someone ...more

I'm not in "Team Adrian" but I like this guy. He is not perfect, but still I want him to be happy.
I can't wait to read Bloodlines!

Recommends it for: Fans of Richelle Mead, vampire-lovers, and those who enjoy impeccable character development.
I cannot believe I didn't know about this scrapped chapter sooner. Having already read The Golden Lily (and loved it) this chapter contains no shockers or revelations for me. It simply reinforces my love for Adrian and my sadness at his life.

I am convinced that Richelle Mead is a literary genius of the first degree. Were she writing in the dry and often depressing genre that timeless books like The Grapes of Wrath and Fahrenheit 451 share then I am sure that the general public would recognize th

This made me kind of happy and mostly sad, because I miss Adrian so much and I didn't even know this Lost Chapter existed. I wish Richelle had published a few more chapters after this one, because I'd be really interested in reading about the famous dinner that gave Adrian and Jill their spirit bond. On the other hand, I think I've had enough of Adrian getting drunk and being miserable, let's be real. I'll just go reread every Sydrian scene ever and remember the Happy Times. ...more

Adrian got a few words, and Rose and Dimitri were perfectly pointless in it, because we all now just how happy they are. I cheer for Adrian to find a new love, may it be Sydney or Jill.

I've said this before, but: Poor Adrian.

This was only 7 pages and nothing much happened. Pretty much just told how miserable Adrian's feeling.
But it was good to see though his eyes even if it was only for a little bit & he wasn't his usual self. Hope he feels better soon...

Bloodlines was done a great disservice by taking this part out. It explained a lot of things that I had questions about within the book. In general, I feel as though the book not having the multiple perspectives hurt it as well.

With that being said, this wasn't a superb bit of writing, but it was definitely an integral piece of the puzzle that should have been added in as a prologue to the main bloodlines book. 3 stars for me.

Side note: Where in the heck is the detailed story of the attack?

This is the first chapter of Bloodlines from Adrian's perspective. It was what was going to be the original first chapter for Bloodlines!
I liked it, but am so glad Richelle went with Sydney's chapter instead!
I much prefer the story being told form Sydney's perspective, she is such a great main character!

I loved being back in the Vampire Academy world, if only for a short while.
I wish there was more from Adrian's POV as I think he is a very interesting character and would love to see his take on things.

It was really neat getting into Adrian's head in Adrian's Lost Chapter. Even this one chapter reveals so much about the inner workings of Adrian's mind—it's interesting and insightful. I can't imagine how I'd feel if the whole series had been told in alternating perspectives, but I didn't mind this chapter, so maybe I wouldn't have minded that. ...more

This is only a chapter, so you can't really expect much. The top 2 reviews I read about this tore it up, and I don't really get it. Why is it so terrible? I thought it was decent. Regarding the complaints that it keeps bringing Rose and Dimitri into the story, when the author should just let it drop... Have you read any of the other Vampire Academy or Bloodlines books? All of them start with a bit of background or a prologue built into them, and with reminders of background stories throughout. I ...more

Loved Bloodlines. It was one of my favorite books of 2011.

I love Adrian's Lost Chapter. It is so hard to believe that Bloodline was almost told by different narrators. It would have been such a different story. The stuff that happens in this lost chapter was not even in the final book.

Love Adrian. And loved getting to read a chapter from his POV.
Oh my Adrian,my fictional hubby!! Why have't i read that before?? Anyway, I was so sorry for him!! He's just lost so much..and quite obviously Jil and Adrian still don't know about the bond! And no Sydrian scenes either. But the Romitri scenes?? Ughh the cuteness of them will be the death of me!!! :D ♥ ...more

Quick little bit from Adrian's POV - the alternate first chapter of Bloodlines. God, I love that man, and being inside his head is brilliant. I'd love a whole book of him!

And bonus - we get to see a couple of glimpses of a very happy Rose and Dimitri together. Squee!!!

Just because it's Adrian, otherwise I didn't see much point to this short, short story.
