    “Klune plays with superhero genre tropes and fan-fiction clichés with the skill of a true fan—completely aware of their ridiculousness but in love with them anyway. Hilarious, sweet, and absolutely super!”—Kirkus Reviews

    “TJ Klune is doing powerful work that inspires and impresses. He is a gift to our troubled times, and his novels are a radiant treat to all who discover them.”—Locus 

    “If you’re looking for a book to read and then reread several times before the next Spider-Man movie releases, this will be perfect.”—Buzzfeed

    Closure

    I loved this trilogy with all my heart. I had finally found a main character I could relate to. Cringy, but hilarious, this book series was incredible. The ending was a little unrealistic, but I loved it nonetheless. I'm sad to see it go, but this book brought perfect closure.

    wonderfully entertaining

    All three of the books in this series have been amazing. TJ Klune out did previous work which I did not think possible. Micheal Lesley's reading was a true performance.

    Perfect close to the Extraordinaries trilogy

    I laughed so hard that I started crying while listening to this. It was just the humorous book I needed to get me out of my reading slump. After the events of Flash Fire, Nick’s dreams of becoming an Extraordinary have finally come true. In the final installment of TJ Klune’s Extraordinaries series, Heat Wave, Nick must juggle his training as Guardian, his growing relationship with Seth (#PyroStormIsBae), and the bane of all high schoolers’ existence: preparing for college. Oh, and did I mention the burden of all superheroes: saving the day (and not looking like a total goof while doing it)?

    Micheal Lesley delivered an uproariously funny performance for the audiobook narration and masterfully brought the many layers of Nick’s personality to life. Heat Wave is a perfect ending to the Extraordinaries trilogy (though I certainly wouldn’t say no to a spin-off featuring Gibby and Jazz). While this book is classified as a young adult novel, I do want to note there is a BUCKET load of sexual innuendos. Young readers who are not ready for that might want to hold off on reading this.

    Altogether, if a series filled with amazing storytelling, lovable characters, and top-notch storytelling sounds like something you’d enjoy, then I highly suggest you check out this series – you won’t regret it!

    Thank god it’s over.

    Please note there are spoilers in this review but I have marked where they begin. Also I apologize for the length of this review but I really needed to get this out.

    I really wanted to like this book, I really did. I was hoping after the second book that TJ Klune was off his whole police are evil kick. Do police need reform - yes, could that have been integrated into the story in a natural way without coming across as pushy and preachy in all the worst ways - yes. Did TJ Klune fail misrably at this - yes. Yes he did. I had to struggle to get through this book and not just because of the ridiculously OTT social justice elements (I mean seriously just look at X-Men If you need a basic template about how to incorporate persecution flawlessly into a superhero story). Also what the hell is with the vilification of Aaron Bell? He’s actually one of the most likable characters in the series and thanks to one slip up he had right after his wife was brutally murdered he’s now the personification of evil as far as TJ Klune is concerned. There’s a version of this story that’s written before George Floyd was killed and I’m dying to read that one because the first book was actually really decent.

    But I also struggled with Nick who may be one of the most annoying protagonist ever written. His evolution is slow and painful and reading his quips are like pulling teeth. To be fair it may partly be because of Michae Lesley’s voice acting (which I hated - although that may just be me, other people seemed to like it) but also Giby and Jazz are written as female goddesses when they clearly are not. Instead of being great three dimensional characters they’re just ridiculous woman whom Nick worships the ground they walk on because - they talk big with nothing to back it up I guess. There are so many fantastic strong female characters out there and Giby and Jazz are definitely NOT one of them. There’s a throw away line about penis’s that Giby makes that feeds right into the whole idiotic “penis’s are gross” theme that someone like TJ Klune should be above.

    I will say this. The plot point around Nicks mom was intriguing and to avoid spoilers it was one of the few things done well in this book.

    Overall considering the incredible “House on the cerulean sea” and “Under the whispering door” which are incredible, heartwarming and feature a phenomenal cast of three dimensional characters, this series was such a swing and a miss it’s hard to believe it’s from the same author.

    SPOILERS FROM HERE

    As for the villains aka Simon, Patricia and Owen Burke the less said the better. Simon was about as classically evil overlord as it gets and Owen had the perfect redemption arc right there waiting for him and instead he LITERALLY becomes evil for evils sake. I swear to god if you told me that the same person wrote this book and the House on the Cerulean Sea I wouldn’t believe you. At least Owens ending was tragic in a good way. Patricia could easily have become a redeemable character after pretending to be Nicks mom for so long but clearly TJ Klune just wanted villains straight out of a fifties comic book.

    Now to focus on the little good that there was. Miss Conduct was great and I loved her relationship with Chris. Also Seth and Nicks relationship was pretty well done and Seth was one of the only decent character’s in this series. The part where Nicks dad was teaching him about enemas was both touching and hilarious and unlike other reviewers I actually really enjoyed it.

    The second half become more bearable but the end was as predictable as it could possibly be and the only good thing I can say is that it’s actually over. The epilogue was sweet and I actually chuckled at the villian.

    I will happily read TJ Klunes next book so long as it doesn’t involve cops, Nicholas Bell or Superheroes, because this was painful.

    Also the cover art for the audiobook to quote Nick “sucks ass”. It looks like it was drawn by a toddler.

    amazing ending to a great series!

    Overview: Nicholas Bell is your just like any other teenager…obsessed with superheroes, writing self-insert fanfiction, and constantly getting his best friends in on his hare-brained schemes. But what happens when the people you thought you knew the best have been keeping secrets and your whole life isn’t as ‘ordinary’ as it seems?

    Things to look forward to: delightful mc who is gay, hilarious, and has adhd; super supportive friends & parents, Burrito Jerry, super powers, taking down the bad guy, convos focused on BLM and police abolition

    <<SPOILERS AHEAD>>

    CW: grief & parent death; ableism related adhd; racism & police brutality (the mc’s dad is a white police officer so the first book does center this as well as his abuse of power after the trauma of losing his wife in a bank robbery - this is challenged in the first book by the black characters & is further challenged by all characters in the second and third books); nationalist political vibes (related to 45)

    I cannot express the love I have for these books. The characters are so loveable! The audiobook is top-tier and I would 1000% recommend. This is def a new favorite series; and that epilogue was just… too perfect.

    i-

    i literally have no Clue where to start- but all i can say is i love it. i love how much at ease this series is and how much i cried in this last book.. the VA is also so incredibly fitting to the characters, i still cant find the words to it.

    Definitly love the story, love the twists and how the author played with breaking but playing clichée, the Voice actor does such a good Job with his work -
    big big big heads up

    Epic finale

    No spoiler: if you’re confused at the beginning of the story, STICK WITH IT.
    I promise it’ll become clearer. TJ couldn’t come up with a story that didn’t make sense if he tried. Have faith.
    And OMG the narration performance is fantastic.
