Dear Readers,
Happy New Year! I'm really excited about this opportunity to hear from you all and to find out what you think of my new novel, Flammenblut: Im Zeichen des Schicksals. I've been writing paranormal novels for a while now, but this is the first time I've ventured into Young Adult literature and the first time I've written about Djinns. Unlike vampires or werewolves, Djinns aren't purely myth; in fact, over 1 billion people today believe they are real.  So real in fact, that when I started doing my research I came across dozens of people who very casually told me they had either seen one, knew someone who used one or in one particular instance, refused to visit their aunt because she was married to one. Hearing people's stories and coming across some extraordinary individuals drove me to begin the Flammenblut series. Celine, the protagonist, is not exactly your normal heroine (although she really doesn't give herself enough credit, like most extraordinary women I know) and I hope you will enjoy getting to know her and following her on her quest to find the mysterious guy from her visions and to save him (totally heroic right? not that she would agree!). 
Viele Grüße
Mina Hepsen

Mehr über das Buch:

Celine hat eine besondere Gabe: Sie kann in die Zukunft sehen. Mithilfe ihrer Tarotkarten und durch Visionen erhält sie Einblicke in das, was sein wird. Dennoch war ihr Leben nicht leicht. Ihre ersten Jahre verbrachte sie im Waisenhaus, bevor sie in eine grausame Pflegefamilie kam, aus der sie nur mit Mühe entfliehen konnte. Seitdem lässt sie sich von ihren Visionen leiten, bis sie eine davon direkt in die Arme des attraktiven Josh Beaumont treibt. Das Schicksal hat sie zu ihm geführt, jetzt muss sie nur noch herausfinden, warum … LESEPROBE

The book had long been on my wish list and now I hope that I have a bit of luck and can participate in the reading circle.
I am very fascinated by tarot cards and the interpretation of the future, connected with it and even own some. I have read books on tarot cards and books in which they occurred. Thus my fascination has not diminished, but unfortunately I do not really believe that a prediction of the future is possible through Tarot cards. It's a gimmick, but for me, not more than that.

I'd be here next time again, if the luck ist on my side! ;)
It was such a great novel and I am thinking about it now and then, even though my life actually is a ship in a stormy sea. So it's one of the special books! ;)
If someone is visiting, he can see that fact, and I took that picture for a blog-challenge on february, 15th.

Thank you, Mina, for this book and the others, and for being part of this reading group and let us take part, too!

Sincerely,
Julia

The second book is mostly there :) I say mostly because I've found this reading round really informative and am changing things here and there based on some of the really insightful comments (critical and complimentary, its been great to read all of your opinions). As for when it will come out, unfortunately I have no idea :( depends on publishers I'm afraid... As for the ultimate ending, yes, I have that sorted. When I started writing this book, I already knew who the person was that dropped Celine off at the orphanage and why (all of that backstory actually came to me first :)...nevertheless, details always change, and sometimes you have a plan but suddenly one of the characters takes the story in a different direction. They can be stubborn that way :)

Now I'm even more interested in the next book - I hope the publishers have mercy on us ;-)

I am looking forward to the sequel! :)

Thank you, Mina, for the book and the chance to participate in this reading group. Your active and dedicated participation was outstanding and made it even more interesting for me. In addition, I found it great that we even had the chance to ask you questions.

As always, it was very interesting to see how diffently all of us feel about certain aspects of the story. I really enjoyed reading all the other contributions, they called my attention to things that I would otherwise never noticed. It was a great reading group with all of you :)

Dear Mina Hepsen,

I'm a great fan of your book "fire blood" and was desperately looking for part 2. May I ask you if "fire blood" will be continued? I very much hope so! I would be grateful if you could let me know about your plans of writing part 2.

Kind regards
Ines
