First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday

Every Tuesday Bibliophile by the Sea¬†hosts a meme where you can share the first paragraph (or few) of something you’re currently reading or about to read. Since I couldn’t think of 3 much less 10 books I bought on a whim for Top Ten Tuesday I decided to do this one instead.

The next book I have on my TBR pile is:

Consider The Dragon

A dragon was dead.

A giant black and purple fire-breathing dragon from the very pits of hell itself was dead somewhere outside the castle. Thorns were falling from the battlements like rain, making curiously pleasant wooden sounds on the grounds of the bailey. Many strange and dire things were happening to an ancient keep that had already endured enough unusual treatment for the past sixteen years.

The handsome prince had killed the dragon with the help of the three strange little fairies he now followed. Without them, he would have done no good whatsoever.

What do you guys think so far? I love fairy tale retellings and you don’t come across too many sleeping beauty ones in YA so I’m pretty excited for this one.¬†
