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

Rating: 4 / 5

Although this took me quite a long time to finish, I ended up enjoying it quite a lot. I was craving YA fantasy and this was just what I needed.

It is a story about a girl who has been prepared her whole life to mar ...more

By Yara May 19, 2020

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

I have received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Live Like Legends was one book that was way too easy to devour. At least for me. I mean how could you not want to dive into a princess with a prophecy and legend? Heck yeah, sign me up!

In it, you will meet Kalista. Now she has ...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
Kalista is a Peace Baby which essentially means her parents only had her in order to form an alliance with another kingdom. She’s born to do her duty and knows who she will marry but this largely ignored Princess has her world shaken when a prophecy is revealed that means she has to ...more

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was such a hard one to rate and review. I enjoyed it, but it could have been SOO much better if for one simple fix which I discuss below. All in all, not a bad debut.

However, her predictable and controlled life changes when she is forced to marry a warrior prince instead. Prince Calder’s kingdom suffers under the wrath of a vicious monster, and a prophecy na ...more

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

By Michelle June 02, 2020

Live Like Legends is a standalone young adult fantasy romance by Kate Cornell. This book is blurbed as being perfect for fans of Lindsay Duga's Kiss of the Royal and Sara Wolf's Bring Me Their Hearts series, which excited me to no end because those are some of my all time favorite fantasy romances. ...more

By Olivia May 19, 2020

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 Dee/ bookworm July 28, 2020

Spectacular book! I loved all the relationships and barriers and interworking of the relationships. What a beautifully intricate web ! I like how motives are hidden and loyalties are tested. You never know who is good and who is bad. I can't wait to read more from this author.

By Ashley June 09, 2020

A quick romance centric, light fantasy read that featured an arranged marriage and language barrier between lovers. 

This book started a little weird for me. I am not sure how to really explain it. It could have been the writing and it just jumped right into the story and the words were just off ...more

By Lynne June 23, 2020

Incredible character development. We are introduced to the heroine as she is being transported to a foreign land, newly married to someone she has never met in order to fulfill a prophecy. Kalista utilizes the strength, courage, determination, curiosity, and cunning that were part of her fabric when ...more

By Katieb June 03, 2020

Fun, Adventurous, Witty YA fantasy

Live Like Legends was a deep dive into a fantastical world of powerful contracts, magic and monsters. Cornell’s characters are robust and the wit of her heroine caught me laughing out loud more than once. Between wanting to see how Kalista finds her voice and the my ...more

Review originally posted on my blog: I Heart Fictional People


The cover immediately caught my attention. And then I read the synopsis. I love my romance, but I’ve been wanting to read about a kickass heroine, and that’s what Kalista sounded like, so I just had to read it.
