REVIEW: Heat Wave by TJ Klune

Heat Wave is the explosive finale to the thrilling Extraordinaries trilogy by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author TJ Klune!

Nick, Seth, Gibby, and Jazz are back in action bringing justice, protection, and disaster energy to the people of Nova City.

An unexpected hero returns to Nova City and crash lands into Nick’s home, upturning his life, his family, and his understanding of what it means to be a hero in the explosive finale of the thrilling and hilarious Extraordinaries trilogy by New York Times bestselling author TJ Klune.

🔸 high flying, YA fantasy🔸

🔸 quirky characters, great dialogue🔸

🔸 quintessential Klune humour!🔸


TJ Klune is one of my favourite authors. I will always read whatever he writes. The Extraordinaries was marvellous. For a first book in a series, it was everything that I could want. There were so many superheroes around at the time and having a queer and neurodiverse MC in a superhero book was really needed.

Book two, Flash Fire, was a great continuation of the series. I loved the way that the story unfurled and the way that Nick and Seth were getting to know one another. This brings us to the newest book in the series: Heat Wave.

Heat Wave is a great conclusion to the series. It wraps up a lot of the loose ends that were remaining. There are some grand twists, a few zig zags and Nick and Seth finally get their HEA.

I found that the first half of this book dragged a little. It felt a little too familiar. The jokes, I felt, had been written before and some of the things I had most loved – like Nick’s wit and racing mind – felt a little repetitive.

The story more than made up for the drawbacks and I would recommend this to anyone – as a conclusion to the series. It is definitely not a stand-alone as there’s too much built into the lead up for the finale.
