As Long as We Live ~ Review

As Long as We Live
By Cortney Manning

Years ago a chance meeting altered the life of a Fae prince, offering him a friendship cloaked in anonymity and conducted through the means of a beloved pet. 

But when Pierre's father dies darkness and a seemingly endless winter fall upon the land. Could the secret friendship that he has maintained all these years be the key to saving all he holds dear? 

The night that the kindness of a stranger warned her of a danger she didn't know existed, Ivy has held dear the messages sent to her by her protector. As one of the few humans living among the Fae Ivy and her two sisters don't truly belong to either world. Humans distrust those influenced by the Fae and the Fae view humans as not their equals. But could those who find themselves not of any world save the one that has always been their home?

As Long As We Live is a lovely story that offers one all you would expect and hope for in a fairytale retelling. Danger, adventure, darkness, a promise of love, loss, and disappointment.   The characters are well developed and the story is well-paced. And then there is the Forgotten Realm a place corrupted so that if you stray from the paths that will trap you forever.

I received a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion - all thoughts expressed are my own.

Book Description:

Three human sisters live in a Fae realm where every prince is blessed or cursed by a gift of magic, and royal rivalry threatens the future of the land. 

Ivy Durran, the oldest sister, is a resilient young woman who clings to her sunny resolve even in the darkest situation. When a terrible blizzard strikes the land, she feels responsible for protecting her sisters: adventurous Rose and vivacious Poppy. However, the storm drives an unexpected visitor to their doorstep, one who could bring hope or danger with his arrival. 

Meanwhile, Pierre, the newly crowned ruler of Concoria, strives to bring order to his frozen land and tranquility to his troubled brothers. Nevertheless, the deep magic of Concoria is not easy to tame. While Pierre would love nothing more than to escape into a simple life close to Ivy, the human lass he met years before, he instead shoulders his burdens and seeks healing for his kingdom and family. 

Dark magic, frigid storms, and deadly predators must be overcome if Ivy and Pierre have any hope of saving their families and their homeland.
