LIBERTY by Kim Iverson Headlee is an enticing Ancient Romance Historical Romance set around 160 AD Rome. *This is the second edition*

This is the tale of one woman's struggles, Rhyddes (aka-Liberty) a glaiatrix-slave, sold by her father for a debt owed to a Roman tax collector. "Liberty/Libertas" is the tale of betrayal, intrigue, sacrifice, survival, lust, romance and unrequited love.

Also, meet Marcus Calpurnis Aquila is the son of a Roman governor, "Aquila" or "Eagle" who is falling in love with the noble, Celtic Warrior, Liberty.

While, an interesting tale, some of the language felt a bit out of place for the era, overall, an interesting and satisfying read. Liberty had a hopeless, helpless life, but though it all she kept her soul intact. "Liberty" is a story with many facets, and characters. Well written with an interesting cast of characters. The storyline is rather unique in the premise of young love, lovers who can never be together, for a Gladators' life is to "obey or die". Interesting and intriguing, but at times very frustrating as well. This story is NOT for the faint of heart, some parts of the story was hard to read. This story is at times hard to follow, not easy to read, but overall a unique and entertaining read. If you enjoy Ancient Rome, Historical Romance, a story with many facets, than I would recommend picking up "Liberty".

*Please be warned, this story is NOT for the faint of heart as it does have scenes which includes violence and sexual assault**

*Received for an honest review*
