First of all I wanted to just state that I received a early copy of this from NetGalley for an honest review.
This is the sequel to Extraordinaries by TJ Klune. If for some reason you haven’t read the first one then I suggest walking away from this review as their will be spoilers for the first one. In this one Nick is officially in a relationship with superhero and best friend Seth.
There are also new heroes arriving in Nova City. It’s up to Nick and his friends to determine who is friend and who is foe. I just gotta say there is a drag queen superhero 😍.
“Maul?” Nick said, outraged. “I didn’t maul anyone. It was a loving kiss that I placed . . . upon myself because I . . . deserved it?”
Flash fire is just as funny and a joy to read as the first book. 100%
There were so many times I found myself laughing out loud. (Nick is so adorably dumb sometimes)
Nick’s dad is honestly the best! The way he can make a scene so awkward that you can’t help but burst out laughing and feeling the embarrassment for Nick. The shit he puts Nick through (in a good way) screams parenting done right 😉
Watching Nick and Seth be all awkward with each other is adorable and everything you could ask for. Their relationship and everything thing that goes with expections of being in a relationship is well paced and thought out. They felt real.
You get more Gibby and Jazz which was definitely nice to see. And how all four worked together (friendship goals)
You get to see more extraordinaries showing up and what they can do.
And find out more about Nick’s backstory which I loved. And needed more of!
There are more twist and turns in this one then the first and the ending!!!I need the next book like yesterday.
Now to the spoilers. This is just a me thing I’m a 100% sure. It took too long for Nick to realise he had powers even though as a reader you knew for sure he did at the end of the first. Bitch I caught it and you then made me think I was crazy! I literally had to put the book down at one point. As I wanted to shake Nick.
I just needed to air that haha.
The pacing though was spot on. In everything. This book didn’t rush a thing and it worked. I am dying for the third book.
“Superhero team-up” Nick breathed. “It’s like this is a sequel! Oh my god. Yes. Yes.”
