The first book in Richelle Mead’s new spin-off series, Bloodlines, doesn’t hit stores for a couple weeks, but she’s giving us a sneak peek at an alternate first chapter right now, after fans rose to her challenge of reaching 10,000 pre-ordered copies. The new book features many of the characters from her Vampire Academy novels, and this excerpt — originally the beginning of Bloodlines — is told from the point of view of Adrian, one of her popular bloodsuckers. Check it out below.
