Princess Kalista has known her role from birth. She’s spent her entire life preparing to be the socialite wife of a prince from a peaceful kingdom. But on her big day, she is shocked when she is instead forced to marry the warrior prince of a cursed land, who is as cold as the wintry kingdom he’ll one day rule.

Carson has a throne no princess wants to share with him. An immortal beast ravages their land, and he’ll do anything to stop it, even marry a complete stranger on the day she was supposed to wed her betrothed. Let her hate him for it, but Kalista is his only hope for peace.

Kalista knows she’s just a pawn on the chessboard of politics, but now she’s expected to kill an unstoppable creature because of some legend about her bloodline that Carson believes as truth. He trains her how to fight, and when lessons in swordplay lead to lessons in love, her destiny puts more than just her life at risk.

How far is she willing to go to save the prince she never wanted…but can’t imagine living without?

I was sold on the blurb. This book was totally up my street. A princess, a prophecy and a legend.

Kalista has been training to be the perfect betrothed since she was a child. She learnt a new culture and language. After an ancient prophecy is set in stone everything she hasn’t learnt becomes useless ...more

I absolutely loved this book! I have to say that the title doesn't really match with a YA fantasy (it feels more like contemporary or maybe even sci-fi, but not straight up fantasy) or the cover, but I'm glad I read the synopsis and gave this a try! I couldn't put it down, literally read in one day. ...more

3.5 Stars in my Sky!

I enjoyed Kalista's story. It's a short and sweet fantasy full of drama and YA-friendly romance.

The fantasy element and world-building are not overdone. I would have liked a little more information if I'm honest. I enjoyed the Lost in Translation elements and felt Kalista's angui ...more

Kallista (such a beautiful name) is a peace baby. She is brought up to marry the prince of the neighboring country to end the conflict between them and keep the peace. She knows how to blend in. She learned his language, customs of his land, their history, etc. She seemed at peace with her fate, but ...more

Three and a half

By Katherine June 01, 2020

What a super awkward love story! And that is what this is. An arranged marriage between two kingdoms that turned into a great, sweet romance- and there just happens to be a touch of action, danger and monsters. This is seriously like my favorite kind of historical romance novels- this one just so ha ...more

You know a book is good when it keeps you up until three in the morning lol it also helped me get out of a bit of a slump, so that was nice!

I think this is a standalone (?) (it felt like one at least) so yay! While I do like a good series it’s always nice when everything is wrapped up in one book! ...more

By Nicole May 17, 2020

This novel was an enjoyable read about a princess whose purpose was to be the wife of a prince, but becomes completely upended when a prophecy is revealed. Kalista had to follow "rules" trained into her from birth, even if she was better or more intelligent. Upon her marriage to Carson, much changes ...more

By Vachara May 29, 2020

LIVE LIKE LEGENDS is the first published book of Kate Cornell.
I quite enjoy the writing style and most of the novel, but I wish the novel had focused more on the training of the « prophecy girl » and less on the love development between Kalista and Carson, even if we understand why at the end of the ...more

By Tammy May 22, 2020

This was an amazing read that grabbed my attention and didn't let go. If life hadn't gotten in the way this would have been a one day read. Kalista and Carson as well as Emmett and Luke were fantastic characters. The language and customs barriers made the relationships even more interesting. The rel ...more
