Book Review - In A Faraway Land by Blair Babylon

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

Flicka escaped after her husband assaulted her, but getting away from him was just the beginning. To divorce him Flicka has to establish residency in Las Vegas. Her husband Pierre knows that she has to live in Las Vegas and that she has to file the correct paperwork to set the divorce in motion. Pierre is the crown prince of Monaco and he needs a legal heir to keep his rights to the throne. Flicka has to be the one and he won't stop to get her back behind the walls of his castle. Can Flicka stay hidden long enough to get the divorce finalized?

Flicka's bodyguard Dieter helped her escape and got her to Las Vegas. Flicka never had to work a day in her life, but Pierre sabotaged Dieter's finances and they now need to find another way to get money. Dieter has to leave Flicka for a short amount of time to pick up his daughter at her babysitter's house. He commands Flicka to stay in the hotel room until he gets back, but Flicka has other plans. She's done with depending on every person around her and is taking matters into her own hands. Does Flicka have what it takes to disappear in a crowd?

Flicka is determined to divorce her husband. There's no doubt in her mind about how he'll treat her if she would go back to him. She's resourceful and a quick thinker. Flicka ran her own charity for a long time and there are a few useful skills she's learned. She's an expert in negotiating and she knows an awful lot about alcohol and gambling. In Las Vegas these are abilities that can get her a paycheck at the end of the day. I love how smart Flicka is. She's been raised as a royal, but she doesn't look down on people. I am rooting for her to stay safe, so she can let true love in and live in peace again.

In A Faraway Land is the third book in the Runaway Princess series. After every book in this thrilling series I love the main characters more. Flicka is such an amazing woman. She has been in love with Dieter for a very long time and I could feel their chemistry radiating off the pages. In In A Faraway Land the danger becomes even more real when the net around Flicka and Dieter is closing in on them. They need every advantage they can get and this constant fear kept me on the edge of my seat. I fell in love with the Runaway Princess series ever since I read the first book, Once Upon a Time, and look forward to finding out how Flicka's journey continues.


If you love to read stories about royal families, secrets and dangerous encounters In A Faraway Land would be a perfect choice. Please keep in mind that this book is the third book in the Runaway Princess series. I'd advise you to start with the first book when reading Flicka's story. There's an open ending, because the story will continue in the next book, At Midnight.
