Make It Out Alive:
The medieval light fantasy romance full of dangerous adventures
Are you ready to take a break from reality and head off on a magical journey of danger and discovery?
Do you yearn for a thrilling read to lift you out of the mundane and get your heart pumping?
Make It Out Alive tells the story of Violet, a young girl living in a fantasy world who has been forced through circumstances out of her control, to live by stealing essential food and goods just to ensure that she and her witch grandmother survive from day to day.
But living this way was always bound to catch up with her, and now, as refugees living in the forest on the outskirts of the kingdom, Violet’s enforced misdemeanors are about to bring her whole world crashing down around her.
The King has had enough of her lawless ways and sends Ryland, a skilled and fearless bounty hunter, to track Violet down and return her to the kingdom where she will face execution. But when Ryland and Violet become lost in the forest, their own survival becomes their only goal. As each realizes that they must rely on the other to get out of the forest alive, they begin to grow closer as an unexpected bond forms between them.
What perils will they face as they seek a way out? Is anywhere safe? Will they ever reach a place of safety? And what of the relationship they have formed? Will Violet still be led to her death for the sake of a bag of money?
In her latest book, EmmaELLIS tackles issues such as finding love suddenly, unexpectedly, and through an unlikely source and challenges readers to think about the decisions they would make in similar situations, forcing them to question their own morality. But she does so in a safe space – a fantasy world in the pages of a book. You may not even realize at the time that you are making moral judgments as you are swept along with the story with the pair facing one tragedy after another.
Emma is a writer who loves to travel and is inspired by Paris – the city of love – in her writing. In Make It Out Alive, she introduces us to Violet, a girl who is non-conformist in a way that many of us would like to imagine ourselves to be. Violet is a good person who has rejected some of the ways that society has tried to mold her to its own view of the world. In doing so, she creates for herself a simple life in which her happiness or contentment is judged by her own values. The price she pays for that life is exile from the kingdom and a need to break the law in order to survive. Ryland is the very opposite. An enigmatic character, driven by greed and prepared to ignore his moral compass in the hunt for the bigger buck. As happens to all of us at some points in our own lives, Make It Out Alive throws these two very different characters together and examines how they cope in testing times and alongside a companion who is so very different from them.
The book will appeal to fans of romance novels who also like their stories to be a little bit out there. With Emma’s latest release, you’ll find yourself engulfed in dilemmas of the heart while simultaneously having your heart in your mouth as the daring duo battle to find salvation from everything the forest throws at them.
But beneath the surface, you’ll be asked to question what each is motivated by on their quest and where the fine line between trust and self-preservation lies.
