The lost chapter of Adrian Ivashkov...

Richelle Mead started her Bloodlines challenge last week where she, based on a bet with a friend, promised to release the first chapter of Bloodlines from Adrian Ivashkov's point of view IF there would be 10.000 pre-orders by the end of the week.
And because VA fans are (as most fans in general) totally amazing and reached that goal. So for more information go and visit Richelle Mead's blog. You will find there a link, that takes you to Adrian's lost chapter.
Confused about the chapter thing?
Richelle Mead explained, that she originally intended to write the whole novel in third person ("he does this and that") changing the person with every chapter (e.g: First chapter is with Adrian's perspective, second with Sydney's...). But she got problems with that and changed the concept into first person ("I do this and that") and choose Sydney as the only narrator.
That makes Sydney's chapter the official version, which you can read on Richelle Mead's site, too.
Bloodlines will hit the shelves on August, 23.
And, you may ask, what is Bloodlines? Well the answer is easy, that is Bloodlines:

Blood doesn't lie...

Sydney is an alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of human and vampires. They protect vampire secrets - and human lives. When Sydney is torn from her bed in the middle of the night, at first she thinks she's still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. But what unfolds is far worse. Jill Dragomir - the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir - is in mortal danger, and the Moroi must send her into hiding. To avoid a civil war, Sydney is called upon to act as Jill's guardian and protector, posing as her roommate in the last place anyone would think to look for vampire royalty - a human boarding school in Palm Springs, California. But instead of finding safety at Amberwood Prep, Sydney discovers the drama is only just beginning... 

So head over to Richelle's site, read the chapter and tell me what you think about it :)
