When Richelle first sat down to write Bloodlines each chapter was narrated by and different Character.
This is Adrian's lost story.
Adrian's Lost Chapter was supposed to be the original beginning of Bloodlines, as told by Adrian. I have to say, I'm disappointed she didn't keep it, although I understand her reasoning for not doing so.
"Originally, Bloodlines was going to be told from a few different characters' points of view. It was going to be in third person (the "he" voice) and alternate characters each chapter. A few chapters in, problems were emerging from this (you've got to trust me on that!). I ended up starting completely over and simply doing the entire book from just Sydney's point of view in first person (the "I" voice). The all-Sydney version is what you're going to get when the book hits the shelves August 23. Hope that clears things up!"
I haven't read the Bloodines series yet, but from the Vampire Academy series, he was one of my favorite characters. Getting a look inside his head was a treat! It may only be eight pages long, but I suppose eight pages of Adrian is better than zero pages of Adrian. *grins*
