  1. Wouldn’t that be the 5th Heat book? Heat Wave, Naked Heat, Heat Rises, Frozen Heat, and then this one?

  2. Wouldn’t it be the 5th Heat book?

  4. Det. Castle says:

    Recoil, +1 episode and now infos about the 5th Nikki Heat novel. Best way to start the weekhappy

  5. sonnenschein77 says:

    Yay! happy

  6. COOL!!!! I was hoping they would come out with another one. I am going through withdrawel because I finished all the books already. I even started to read them all over again cause I like them so much. LOL I would also love to read the Derrick Storm ones too. Which one was the first Storm book? I am not sure. I would like to read them from the beginning. My daughter loves to read also. She came home with some James Patterson books the other day and she loves them.

  7. that’s a really good news! but we already had the 4th book and i thought he got a three book deal after the first one? do you think it will be adress in the show? that would be nice because they don’t talk much about the books anymore and that’s the reason why he went to the precinct in the first place.. but i’m sure they will come with a great idea about that, like always ;)

    I was thinking the same thing. they must realize that OCD fans will notice little things like Castle needing a new contract right? I wonder if they will talk about the re-boot of his Derrick Storm series too as they are now going to come out with a hard back after testing the waters with the mini-ebooks and graphic novels and comic? Maybe that is episode 24 ? LOL

  10. Fantastic news!  Can’t wait to read about Eunice!  smile

  11. ThinkAboutIt says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Castle (in the series), signed up for only three more books (after Heat Wave)- season 2 episode 5?

    • The story line so far in season 5 has not mentioned the renewal of any book contracts. So I suspect it will be mentioned in the upcoming episodes. There is now an additional 2 episodes to this season to bring it up to 24. So there is now 11 more episodes for it to be mentioned.

    • Yes he did but apparently ;D ex-wife Gina and his publishing house have requested more. LOL. Maybe if we’re lucky there will be a scene about this in an upcoming episode. Maybe this is actually “Hampton’s Heat” retitled. If so, will Kate get the [co]writer credit she asked about? :-)

      Back on the real world side of this, lol, I’m thinking because the first four books did so well on the NYT Best Sellers list – along with good sales of the graphic novels, short stories, and comics – that the TBTB decided there should be more.

    • It wasn’t ever a” three books ONLY deal”

      • I’ll bet Beckett thought so. LOL. But you’re right. I think the quote was, “Three *more* books?! That could take forever!” And I believe Castle told his agent, “For that kind of money I’ll write a ton of ‘Nikki Heats.'” So yeah, I guess the sky is the llimit. :-)

  12. Leftfieldsmile.

     

    I was excited to get confirmation of another Nikki Heat novel.  I really enjoyed the last one and look forward to seeing where the story goes!

  13. Fantastic news!  Can’t wait to read about Eunice!  —————————————————–

    Not to mention Beckett’s writing credit for the end! :D Should be fun!

  14. Loyal Lang says:

    I wonder if Kate will get credit as co-authorwrite, considering what she had to say at the end of Murder, He Wrote.

  15. mutha_nite says:

    Hamptons Heat will be the title of the 6th Nikki Heat novel in which Beckett is due a writer’s credit. I imagine that the fifth novel was already in progress before the trip to the Hamptons. And, yes, they need to figure out if Castle got a contract extension after Frozen Heat, or a new contract that insures Nikki will be around for another 6 books or so.

  16. I have been looking for any of the Storm books, but I can’t find any of them. Where are the books being sold?

  17. mari_guerra says:

    I want it all!

  18. Just noticed… shouldn’t the title of this thread be “Nikki Heat #5 on the Way…” undecidedblush

  19. It was a typo which was corrected in the main article but the forum topics don’t auto correct

  21. I agree with Castle’s poker buddies…one Nikki Heat book a year?? How lame…when you are hot (get it – Nikki “heat”..ha), you should be writing more than one book a year. Derrick Storm doesn’t count, since there is no direct correlation to the show.

    • Actually the Derrick Storm stuff HAS been referenced in the show directly, there were two episodes where they mentioned the first graphic novel, one showed the cover artwork and the other time Castle & Beckett saw copies of it in a comic store (Beckett had it on pre order). There was also a scene when Castle talked about how he was bringing Derrick Storm back from the dead, I can’t remember the episode, unfortunately the scene had to be cut because the ep was over time but the deleted scene is on the Season 4 DVDs

      • I believe the distinction here would be the difference between direct and indirect. The Derek Storm character from Castle’s books doesn’t exist on Castle, the show. He has referred to his Storm books several times throughout the show, but Storm doesn’t live in the show. I am an avid reader of everything, so I thought it was a real novelty to read the story (supposedly) by a TV character based on his muse from the show. It works very well and get a lot of enjoyment making comparisons between the show and books characters…something that the Storm books can’t offer…at least not to the extent of the Heat books. After all, reading a Castle book without Heat would be like watching Castle without Beckett…what’s the point??

        • ..and anyway, the main point of my argument was that there should be way more than one Heat book per year. Do you really want argue against me on that?? Strangely, I’ve always watched Castle and thought it was entertaining, but I didn’t really “get into” the show until I began reading the books. I was able pick many more nuances to the show when comparing it to the books characters. I wish there were more examples like this on TV… it completely adds a new dimension to watching…almost as if the audience is given a chance to participate.

  22. Det. Castle says:

    At least there should be one chapter were they are in the Hamptonssmile

  23. aussiecastlefan says:

    I wasn’t sure if there was going to be another one as usually you get a preview chapter for the new book in the previous book and there wasn’t one in the back of Frozen Heat.

  24. I just want to see where Big Percy’s mother, Eunice, is going to factor into the story… read

  25. Lorraine Cheek says:

    Frozen Heat was a fantastic read (the books have just got better and better) so this is great news. Can’t wait for Deadly Heat – putting it on my Amazon Wishlist already :o)

  26. aussiecastlefan says:

    Thanks for that I have paperbacks for all but Frozen Heat.

  27. I agree we need more than one book a year.
    No matter what they do, just keep it all coming.
    Just like mari_querra says ” I want it all”

    Me Too!!

  28. Castle only writing one book a year??? Ian Flemming only wrote one James Bond a year. Of course, he quite writing on his own because he got tired of the fuss.

  29. I have signed up for the Marvel series of Derrick Storm comics that came out in December. I thought there was to be one every month totaling 6 comics? I have not received any new ones. I can not find anywhere on line that lists any more than the first one also. Now I see that they will be publishing a hard cover graphic novel with the same title as the 1st in this series and it will be 120 pages. So now I am wondering if they decided to not publish 6 comics but just put them together into one hard bound graphic novel? If anyone finds out let me know.

  30. OK, so “Storm Front,” digital edition, is supposed to be available today. Admin has downloaded it from Amazon but any time I finally find the Kindle page for the ebook it says it’s unavailable. Is it just me and my iPad and laptop or does anyone else seem to be having a problem. I don’t want the Nook version. Thanks….

  31. I just checked UK amazon. It lists the hardback version of Storm Front being available from 17th May but I can’t find it available  for download on kindle apart from the German version which it says will be available on 20th September!

    You should be able to purchase it through the US store.

  33. Still haven’t been able to download from Amazon. They replied with a link to the same page I got from you, Admin, with the ‘not available’ so I wrote to them again. Might have to try an online chat next!

  34. LindaB says:

    I downloaded the kindle version of Storm front yesterday from Amazon.  I am in the US however.  Not sure if that helps or not.

  35. oznute says:

    Thanks for the feedback Linda…

    I’m having a continuing discussion with Amazon…first they gave me the unavailable link then they gave me the ‘some publishers don’t … blah blah blah’ spiel and then told me Hyperion took it off their list. I sent a message off to Hyperion asking them why they took it off…

    However, I see that it now even has reviews on the Amazon page so I might try again to them. I have also tried just looking it up with a VPN connected as well, logging out of my account, clearing cache and everything. I guess all I can do is keep trying!

  36. It’s STILL showing as available to me! Though when I tried accessing via my phone it showed the same not available comment you had.

     

    Try this link http://www.amazon.com/gp/produ…..astletv-20

  37. oznute says:

    Hey ‘min…

    Thanks for the link but I get the same message again! I’m on my laptop, cleared the cache and history, turned on the VPN and still get unavailable. Amazon did say in one of their emails that the book was removed by the publishers but it’s odd that there are now comments on the page and you still see it as available. Here’s what they wrote:

    “Hello,
    I’m sorry for any inconvenience caused in this regard.
    It seems that the publisher of the book has change the availability of the book within hours and I’m not sure which part was causing the problem.
    I request you to contact the publisher (Hyperion) for accurate information on his book.”

    I’ll probably just order the ‘book’ if I can’t get it. It should be here before I head o/s in June. Otherwise, I’ll activate my Barnes and Noble account and use the Nook app. iTunes don’t have it at all.

  38. Hylean says:

    I love the physical copy has now become ” ‘book’ “.

    I’m in the same boat OZNUTE. I can’t find it available for D/L here. I have a physical copy ordered but wanted to have the e version now. Oh well, patience is called for, unfortunately with anything Castledom related patience is not my strong point.

    I’m glad I’m not going crazy then and it’s not just me! Where are you located? It’s crazy here because Admin and I are both in Australia! My last test will be to try and order it using McDonald’s wifi with VPN just in case it’s my ISP and then using my phone as it hasn’t been ‘contaminated’ with previous attempts!

    Virtuous isn’t in any description of me as patience is not one of my strong points! tantrum

    I’m in Sydney oznute and I don’t get a ‘e’ option on either OZ or US Amazon. Don’t know what’s going on. Castle and patience just don’t go together!

  42. oznute says:

    I was planning on reading the book on my trip to the US in June on iPad. I guess, if it doesn’t appear as an ebook before the hardcover comes out I will be carrying a hardcover version! Admin, you were lucky!

    NB…got it via US iBooks…need a US iTunes card which I had and an account which I have and share with my sister.

  43. It’s STILL showing as available to me.

    Do you have the kindle app on your phone or ipad? Is it already signed in to your amazon account?

  44. Hey…

    I got the Kindle version to show up in the Amazon store using a VPN but as soon as I logged into my account it said…’nope, sorry, not forAustralians!’ I haven’t opened a US Amazon account but might for these reasons only. Get a US prepaid Visa to use on it like I do with my ATT sim in my iPad when I go back to NJ. The book is not an issue now because I got it from US iBooks (it was also not available in Aussie iBooks!) I have an account there that I share with my sister in NJ. I also have a US prepaid phone I use there.

    Why it keeps appearing in your account is strange, though. However, have you tried to order it again? Logout, try to order and see what happens when you login.

  45. The only thing I can thing that may somehow make a difference is one of my save postal addresses is in the US.. but that really doesn’t make sense because my only payment method is Australian and that’s what they usually go by.

    I haven’t tried to re-order it – there’s a note there to remind me I already bought it but the “buy with 1 click” button is still active so there’s no reason I wouldn’t be able to re-purchase if I wanted to

  46. oznute says:

    Guess we’ll never know! Might try that, though…put my sister’s address as my default address and see what happens…don’t want to buy another copy, though!

    Anyway, have you read it yet? I was going to save it for the plane trip but June is too far away!

  47. My US address isn’t even my default address…

    Read? Are you serious? Don’t have time for that! Haven’t even read all the Heat books or Derrick Storm novellas yet. Even bought Naked Heat on audio to try and get through it that way but am only about 2/3 of the way through. Problem with reading is you can’t multi-task and I just don’t have time to stop and do a single thing :(

  48. Storm Front is now available to buy in Hardcover and on the Kindle on the UK Amazon site! I’ve just purchased the Kindle version! thumbsup

    Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic “Castle: The Complete Fifth Season”

        Estimated arrival date: September 16, 2013 – September 20, 2013

    Now, I did take the free shipping option, but I usually get my orders within two to three days even with the slow shipping – comes from living close to an Amazon Distribution Center grin

    Eunice is in fact not in any of the two new books. I have both as ebooks, and you can do a search
