"I saw the carrion birds coming towards us, their beaks full and their wings dipped in blood. I looked again, they were bombers."
A libertine lives free from all restraint - erotic and otherwise; but in a city at war, what does freedom mean?
A young woman discovers the limits of freedom when she becomes the mistress of the General. Seduced by his power, trapped by his savage fetishism, she gives a searing account of her journey into the heart of his darkness
A journey that will transform her and the man she loves, the man she must keep form the General at all costs.
Visceral, confronting, utterly compelling, Libertine is about the eroticism of surrender - to love, to fear, to war and, ultimately, to the humanity of hope.
