I don't know how she does it. Each book has a different story involving Flicka and Dieter/Raphael. All are well written and sooo good. Promise you won't be disappointed. J

Flicka struggles and grows as she and Dieter learn how to live and earn enough to survive while establishing residency in Las Vegas under the radar of those searching for them. She continues to work through the fallout of the attrocities done to her and grows stronger in identity and independence each day. I loved seeing Flicka grow during their Vegas period and even more so loved how her and Dieter's relationship grew. Sadly, the past is difficult to escape and threats from Dieter's past combine with threats from Pierre's minion army and bring this part of their story to a dangerously critical point. At just under 200 pages this is a full story, but not the ending to their adventure. The escape route they are forced to take is leading them back to Europe and into an even more dangerous situation in the sequel At Midnight.

Honestly, there is no author that frustrates me more than Blair Babylon. She is a literary genius and the QUEEN of cliffhangers!!! I have never been left salivating for knowledge of what happens next more than when I have read any of the books written by her, and trust me, I have read every single one of them. I will try to be patient while I wait for the next installment in Flicka's series due out in a month but it will be incredibly difficult. I already know that I will obsessively think about Dieter/Raphael's family and upbringing; wonder constantly if Pierre will finally succeed in kidnapping Flicka and dragging her back to Monaco; dream about whether Dieter and Flicka can ever come out publically with their love for one another-- and if either will live through Wulf's wrath when he discovers all of the lies which have be protecting the truth. Inquiring minds need to know, Ms.Babylon!!! Your cliffhangers could possibly kill a girl due to prolonged periods of insatiable curiosity. I received an Advanced Read Copy of this book, loved it so much, I bought it.... and I also pre-ordered the next installment. Have I mentioned yet that I simply can't wait? LOL

To divorce Pierre, Flicka has to become a resident of Las Vegas. Dieter snuck her out of Europe and brought her to Nevada to free her as quickly as possible. They have to remain in hiding to avoid all of Pierre’s henchmen, but they also need money and a place to live. Flicka is a strong and surprisingly resourceful woman. She does what it takes to get a job, and find a place for them to live. She no longer has all of the privileges she’s accustomed to, so she has to rely on her wits, and Dieter’s strength and support to make it through. She uses her princess talents to get a job and help support them. Dieter joins her at the casino, watching over her and making money playing cards. When Dieter picks up Alina things get even more complicated. Not only do they need money for a place to live, they also find out how difficult child care can be. Not only is it very expensive, but also need someone you can trust. Flicka has a surprising relationship with Alina, even though she feels should never be left alone with a child. This book, which is the third in the series, has many unexpected twists and turns. It keeps you on the edge of your seat, biting your nails and excited to see what happens next. Blair’s books never disappoint. I can’t wait for book four in July! I received a complimentary of copy the book, but also purchased a copy to support my favorite author!

In A Faraway land is Flicka von Hannover’s story and is part 3 of a 5-part series. All must be read to understand and fully enjoy the series. As to be expected with any book by Blair Babylon, there are many twists and turns and of course a cliff-hanger! Flicka has resided in Vegas for 6 weeks with her blonde protector to establish residency so she can Divorce the rapist, bigamist, soon to be ex-husband and aptly labelled Rat Bastard, Prince Pierre Grimaldi. Wow! Only a few chapters in and already my heart is torn. Blair my darling, my heart is bleeding, my skin prickles, goose bumps formed and my eyes cry a shared pain. You left my heart and emotions so raw I felt naked before a crowd of hecklers. Such raw emotion on a page, only you can bring your readers to their knees for a character! Powerless, so aptly titled. The hand holding, touched my soul. I loved it! At certain points I still would’ve quite happily shaken Flicka for running off when told not to and being so lax about her security. Would Flicka not realise that Casinos have face recognition technology? I felt at times Flicka put herself and others in danger due to not thinking ahead. Many fans will know exactly what I mean when I say Flicka is as bad as her brother Wulf, when it comes to operational security! A simple game of Kitty Ha-Boo had me seeing a new side to Flicka. I smiled so much while reading it. I needed to see that side of her character. I read it twice!! I want to congratulate Blair on her portrayal of Alina. So many authors write children’s characters as much older than their age stated in their books. Yet Blair nailed it. By 88% of the way through I was crying my eyes out once again, just to have my emotions turned on their head and be led to one heck of a twist and cliff-hanger. I have never pre-ordered a series of books so fast as I have with Flickas. July cannot come quick enough. I received an Advanced Readers Copy for my consideration and honest review!

Flicka and Dieter are still hiding out in Vegas, and Dieter has to go out of town to pick up his daughter. Flicka never one to listen very well goes out after being told not to and makes all kinds of changes. Someone who frequents the bar/casino knows Flicka or heard of her and he suddenly stops coming in, after court, however, she learns who that man really is and why he had interest in Dieter. Everything is far from over for these two so hang on tight.

OMG! OMG! I love this series!!! Flicka and Dieter’s emotional roller coaster continues to gain speed as they flee to Nevada to file divorce papers. Flicka learns that she can get a job and earn her own living. She struggles to escape the nightmare of her ex’s attack and reconnect with Dieter. This was a very emotional and darkening addition to Flicka’s story. Read it and wait with me for the next book. I voluntarily reviewed this advanced reader copy and I have not been compensated in any way.

This series just keeps getting better and better! Blair Babylon writes books that keep me on the edge of my seat right from the beginning. She creates the most devious plot twists and after reading In A Faraway Land I am even more anxious to see what her mind comes up with for the next book in this series. This installment finds Flicka and Dieter living in Las Vegas so that she can establish residency in order to obtain a divorce from her disgusting husband who is a prince in title only; he is definitely not a prince of a human being. I particularly liked the courtroom scene in this book. I pretty much won't read books with cliffhangers but books by Blair Babylon are an exception. She has never failed to finish a series that contains cliffhangers and she finishes them rather quickly. Other authors are guilty of leaving their readers hanging for so long that you forget what the first book was even about. If you are phobic about cliffhangers, like I am, I encourage you to give Blair Babylon's books a try. Check out one of her completed series and I think you'll see what I mean about her writing; it's captivating and engrossing. The next installment of Runaway Princess, At Midnight, comes out on July 31st and I can't wait to read it.

In a Faraway Land is completely intoxicating and undeniably mesmerizing. Watching this story unfold is like experiencing a brilliant masterpiece. The characters are so compelling, the plot is intense and on point, and the entire world this story is built in gets smaller and more precarious as we step farther in. I am salivating as I wait for the next book in this series. I will leave the why for you to savor, but it will surely not disappoint. Watching characters previously discovered move in and out of this story is so exciting, and it makes me want to devour every part of this amazing tour de force that much more. I love when previous stories build on each other until they reach a final deafening crescendo, and this recent series is doing that so deliciously well. Flicka wants nothing more than to divorce her husband who tricked, lied, and assaulted her. She wants it more passionately than a thousand burning suns, and only one person can help her meet the requirements of obtaining this goal. Dieter would do anything for Flicka. He would burn, bleed, and die for her, but he can’t do what she has to in order to get what she wants. All he can do is to try and keep her safe the best he knows how. When that simple job becomes more complicated with each passing day, he must find a way if it only through his will to keep her breathing and with him. Flicka will find that when you want something bad enough, you will figure out a way to get it. Even if that means you have beg, borrow, and plead. For a princess that is unthinkable, but she must decide if being a princess is worth the sacrifice that comes with it. If I loved Flicka and Deiter before, then I am over the moon with them now. They have grown in so many ways together and individually that I was left shocked and greatly entertained. These characters are evolving into something too beautiful for words, and just when you think things can’t get worse or better, they change. Change isn’t always a bad thing, but it isn’t always a good thing either. Change is just a part of life that we seem to have to negotiate with and flow with in order to stay in some type of control. Blair Babylon has blown my mind and completely wrecked my heart with this series. Do you know what the best part is? IT ISN’T OVER YET! I know for a fact that my heart will utterly shredded at the end while my mind will be a useless, short-circuited organ. That is a dream come true for me. When a story can destroy me like that, then I know I have found utter perfection and literary nirvana. Blair Babylon will always be a literary goddess to me!

Full of Bravery, Fear & Adrenaline Fuelled Lust This 'episode' of the gripping 5 part Fairytale, is 'In A Faraway Land, part 3' and is a 'waiting game' for our Princess & her Bodyguard. They are, of course, so much more to one another!! Flicka has to wait 6 weeks to be able to establish residency in Las Vegas before she can apply to divorce her bigamist, rapist, possible attempted murderer & general sleaze of a guy, that is her husband and also a Prince of Monaco!! Dieter is running out of cash, he needs to retrieve his daughter & arrange a way to access money!! It should all be simple enough. He loathes the thought of leaving Flicka alone in Vegas but there is no other choice ☹️ Will our Princess really become a waitress as this author's 'fake synopsis' on episode 1 suggested? Will Pierre & his many guards find her & kidnap her back to Monaco? Will the Russians come a knocking to exact revenge or will Dieter's Dad save them all, if he finds them after jumping on a flight after seeing that video in episode 2?? One thing we know for sure is Flicka won't endanger Wulf, Rae & their baby, knowingly & Dieter won't endanger any of them unless its a last resort!! The love & trust between the two main characters is so beautiful it shines through, especially regarding her trauma It's only shakey as far as 'Will he leave me again? ' Alina, Dieter's daughter, is delightful So are their relationships Some larger economic issue's become raised during parts of this book. They are so relevant but so subtlety written that it almost passes you by as 'just part of a story' rather than actually highlighting an injustice that is perpetuated throughout the US & so many other Countries around the world. This author truly knows her craft & is clearly highly intelligent. How else could she keep these interwoven stories straight?? I really enjoyed 'In A Faraway Land' but due to its very nature it wasn't quite as 'full on' as episodes 1 & 2. It would've been overkill if it was & this author is just too skilled to fall into that pitfall, thankfully!!! Another highly recommended read. Roll on 31st July '18 for 'At Midnight' to be released ✨ You know this reader has 1 clicked that pre-order button Debbie, 1970, UK

I like how Flicka and Dieter keep fighting together. I enjoyed this installment of their story. While Flicka had serious issues she was dealing with, still Blair had me was laughing in parts where Flicka is learning new experiences. It takes quite a turn in the end, which of course leaves me ready for the next installment. Dieters past surprised me and left me with many questions even though I had thought I figured some things out in the previous book, but now I feel I didn't see it clearly.

Blair’s books are always at the top of my “must read” list. This third book is no exception. Twisty intrigue make this continuation such an involved excellent story. Of course included is Blair’s signature romance and steam. There was a point I thought of the adage “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade”. Several places touch on current and overwhelming Economic issues. Do not miss this third in the series and if you have not read the first two, now is the time.

A Review of In A Faraway Land (Flicka, Book 3) by Blair Babylon Flicka and Dieter - 5+++++ Stars In this book, we get to learn more about Dieter and his relationship with Flicka when she was younger and the two of them were living in Wulf's house in London while Wulf was living in the US. We know part of his secrets, but Flicka is still unaware of the truth for the most part. She starts to learn a little bit about his past and his secrets, but she doesn't want to face what she is starting to learn. I shed several tears over this book and the things that Flicka has had to deal with and how she is handling those issues. I can hardly wait for the next book to find out what happens next. Make sure you get this one as soon as you can or you will be disappointed. The books should really be read in order so that you have a full idea of the background and all the characters that are involved. I thoroughly enjoy Ms. Babylon's writing. Favorite quote: “I’m a monster, but you need a monster to fight the monsters.” **Honest review voluntarily provided from a Complimentary Copy**

She’s done it again. Ms. Babylon will keep you on the edge of your seat and won’t let you go. As soon as you think you know, Bam there’s a twist. I could not put this book down and cannot wait to see what happens next. The twists and turns are riveting and enthralling. I am leaving a voluntary review for an advanced copy of the book.
