Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very involved, historically and emotionally. Too much of the latter, but it was a very good read until the 82% mark, where unfortunately imo it went to pieces. The takeover plot by Falco was confusing and hard to digest. I lost interest at that point thereby wasting hours of reading time. Sorry, but this needs tidying up dreadfully.

Liberty is the first book I have read by Kim Iverson Headlee and certainly won't be my last.

The story is about Rhyddes, a young woman who is sold into slavery by her father as a means to pay off debts he owes. Her father, for reasons explained later in the book has always seemed to hate Rhyddes, and has treated her badly, even beating her. It was no hardship for him to sell her into slavery to pay off his debts. At the slave market she is purchased by a man who sets out to make her a female gladiator, a gladiatrix. She has no freedom and every fight she has could lead to her death.

Rhyddes whose gladiator name she chooses to be Libertas for it's ironic value, first sees Marcus, her love interest in this book, at the slave market. He is the son of a Roman Emperor. His relationship with his father is a volatile one. He enjoys training and fighting as a free gladiator, but his father wants more for him than that. He even arranges a marriage for him which he says is for Marcus' benefit, but truly will benefit him the most. Despite knowing that he is betrothed to another, he is instantly attracted to Rhyddes and tries to win her in the slave auction. He loses out to Jamil, the owner of the Gladiator school. Jamil is actually a friend of Marcus' though, so despite losing the auction, he still has a way to have contact with Rhyddes.

There great sub plots running through the story apart from the relationship between the main two characters. Marcus' father believes that Rhyddes, now known as Libertas could be a danger to both his son's betrothal, and because of her celtic origins, a threat to Rome as her popularity in the ring increases. One way or another he wants her removed from the picture.

Totally immersing. One of the best books of 2015 for me. The historical background feels as real as anything from the most well known Roman era authors and the plotting is better than anything I have read in a long time.

Thoroughly recommended.
