EXCERPT: Adrian's Lost Chapter (Bloodlines #0.5) by Richelle Mead (@richellemead)

I am WAY behind on finding this but I wanted to share.  As you all know, I am a huge fan of the Vampire Academy series spin-off, the Bloodlines series.  I was just out on Goodreads adding Silver Shadows (Bloodlines #5) to my to-be-read shelf when I noticed it said “6 books”.  Ummm, nuh uh!  So, I clicked on it, figuring it was more than likely just a duplicate listing.  To my surprise, it was not!  It was something called Adrian’s Lost Chapter.
Off to Google I went to do some research and that’s when I found a chunk of story, on the EW website of all places!  So, although it’s about 3 years late, I wanted to share this with you guys in case you somehow missed it just like I did!

WHAT IF FOLLOWING HER HEART MEANS ROSE COULD LOSE HER BEST FRIEND FOREVER?

Rose Hathaway knows it is forbidden to love another guardian.  Her best friend, Lissa – the last Dragomir princess – must always come first.  Unfortunately, when it comes to gorgeous Dimitri Belikov,
some rules are meant to be broken . . .
But since making her first Strigoi kills, Rose hasn’t been feeling right.  Something dark has begun to grow in her mind, and ghostly shadows warn of a terrible evil drawing nearer to the Academy’s iron gates.  And now that Lissa and Rose’s sworn enemy, Victor Dashkov, is on trial for his freedom, tensions in the Moroi world are higher than ever.

REVIEW: Vampire Academy (Vampire Academy Book 1) by Richelle Mead (@RichelleMead)

Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princess: a mortal vampire with an unbreakable bond to the earth’s magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi; the fiercest and most dangerous vampires–the ones who never die.
The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa’s best friend, makes her a Dhampir.  Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making her one of them.
After two years of illicit freedom, Rose and Lissa are caught and dragged back to St. Vladimir’s Academy, hidden in the deep forests of Montana. Rose will continue her Dhampir education. Lissa will go back to being Queen of the elite Moroi social scene.  And both girls will resume breaking hearts.
Fear made Lissa and Rose run away from St. Vladimir’s – inside the Academy’s iron gates, their world is even more fraught with danger.  Here, the cutthroat ranks of the Moroi perform unspeakable rituals and their secretive nature and love of the night creates an enigmatic world full of social complexities.  Rose and Lissa must navigate through this dangerous world, confront the temptation of forbidden romance, and never once let their guard down, lest the Strigoi make Lissa one of them forever…
