Publisher's Summary

Flash Fire is the explosive sequel to The Extraordinaries by USA Today best-selling author T J Klune.

Nick landed himself the superhero boyfriend of his dreams, but with new heroes arriving in Nova City, it's up to Nick and his friends to determine who is virtuous and who is villainous. Which is a lot to handle for a guy who just wants to finish his self-insert bakery AU fanfic.

Uninspired book written following a woke checklist

I have read/listened to more books by TJ Klune than any other author and I consider myself a Klunatic, so I struggled with the idea of giving this rating. But I decided that a honest (as opposed to a fanboy one) rating is the best option as it will help people who now discover TJ Klune find the better books - that they can appreciate better.

In my view this is the first ever boring book that Klune has ever published. Boring and often annoying. Most of it consists of repetitive shallow conversations about how cool and good we are, understanding and accepting.
Almost nothing happens. There is almost no character building and development and what is worse - the distinct and likable characters from the first book are been turned into bland figures spouting general wokeness to fill the pages.

There is an awkward attempt to handle the topic of the image of the police in US that is obviously patched postfactum in 3 or 4 scenes of the book, but the result is mostly confusing.

Also sad to give 4 stars to the performance by Michael Lesley (big fan by the way), but his uneven reading during the first half with lots of random pauses and wrong/confusing rhythm made the experience more unpleasant and annoying than it should have been.

Glad he backtracked on the copaganda

this was clearly entirely written then rejumbled to take out the cop worshiping. it is a necessary change bit poorly done. dont think a third novel is needed, the story isn't held together.

Extraordinary Performance

Michael Lesley, as always, is an outstanding narrator. The amount of voices they do really bring each character to life and make me laugh.

Story was wonderful with Klune’s unique prose and thousand ways to make you cry. Lots of important conversations and emotional depth.
