A NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY, and WASHINGTON POST BESTSELLER!
A 2021 Alex Award winner!
The 2021 RUSA Reading List: Fantasy Winner!
An Indie Next Pick!
One of Publishers Weekly's "Most Anticipated Books of Spring 2020"
One of Book Riot’s “20 Must-Read Feel-Good Fantasies”

"I loved it. It is like being wrapped up in a big gay blanket. Simply perfect." ―V.E. Schwab, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue

"It will renew your faith in humanity.” ―Terry Brooks, New York Times bestselling author of the Shannara series

“It’s a witty, wholesome fantasy that’s likely to cause heart-swelling.” ―The Washington Post

The House in The Cerulean Sea is a modern fairy tale about learning your true nature and what you love and will protect. It's a beautiful book.” ―Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author

1984 meets The Umbrella Academy with a pinch of Douglas Adams thrown in. Touching, tender, and truly delightful, The House in the Cerulean Sea is an utterly absorbing story of tolerance, found family, and defeating bureaucracy.”―Gail Carriger, New York Times bestselling author of Soulless

“Sweet, comforting, and kind, this book is very close to perfect. The House in the Cerulean Sea is a work of classic children's literature written for adults and children alike, with the perspective and delicacy of the modern day. I cannot recommend it highly enough.” ―Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of Every Heart a Doorway

“Quirk and charm give way to a serious exploration of the dangers of complacency in this delightful, thought-provoking Orwellian fantasy from Klune.... This tale of found family is hopeful to its core. Readers will revel in Klune’s wit and ingenuity.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Lambda Literary Award-winning author Klune (The Art of Breathing, 2019, etc.) has a knack for creating endearing characters, and readers will grow to love Arthur and the orphans alongside Linus... fans of quirky fantasy will eat it up. A breezy and fun contemporary fantasy." ―Kirkus

“This is a sweet narrative about the value of asking questions and the benefits of giving people (especially children) a chance to be safe, protected, and themselves, regardless of what assumptions one might glean from, say, reading their case file.” ―Booklist

“This inclusive fantasy is quite possibly the greatest feel-good story ever to involve the Antichrist.... The House in the Cerulean Sea will delight fans of Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series and any reader looking for a burst of humor and hope.” ―Shelf Awareness

“A beautiful little gem of both irony and, yes, kindness.” ―Fantasy & Science Fiction

“TJ Klune is a master storyteller.” ―The Mary Sue

"A delightful tale about chosen families, and how to celebrate differences." ―Library Journal

“If ever there was an author to watch out for, [Klune] is definitely that author.” ―Culturess Daily

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful story about acceptance wrapped in magic.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 22, 2020
Precious, wonderful and perfectly imperfect!

TJ Klune created a world full of magic that resembled Orwell's 1984 with the burochracy of handling magical youth and he gave us a story full of hope and love and acceptence.

Linus Baker is a caseworker investigating magical orphans and orphanages. He's been working for the Deaprtment in charge of Magical Youth (DICOMY) for seventeen years when he gets a seriously classified case far far away from the rainy city. The orders are vague coming from Extremely Upper Management and he has no idea what an experience awaits him when he boards the train heading to the sea.

The children in the island's orphanage are special, maybe more so than others. And even Linus who worked with magical children his whole life need some perspective to be able to keep an open mind.

And what an adventure it turns out to be to live for a month with the six extraordinary children, one very protective island sprite and a mysterious but kind man who leads this special home.

The endearing charcters, especially the quirky children who come in all forms with all the wonderful abilities and very real troubles make the reader fall in love with them from the very first page. And seeing how Linus, rule-follower, strict Linus opens his mind and heart involuntarily to the inhabitants of the little island is heartwarming. Because sometimes people touch your heart and you touch theirs even without knowing so.

Acceptance is key in this story. Let it be accepting yourself and who you really are or learning how to see the person behind the name and the stigma, it is eyeopening.

Besides that the complacency of the world and handling the unknown is a main topic. How to fight the restraints of society to discover the truth and the wonders of the world. How to stand up and fight for those who you love. How to learn the colours of the world throught the eyes of children.

Every page has something sweet or moving on it. Every chapter either makes you laugh or cry or the both at the same time.

The book is so much like TJ Klune! You can't miss the special touches that are so uniquely his own.

There is a very big chance that you will walk away from this book with a full heart, wet eyes and a huge smile on your face. And one thing is sure. You will carry this story with you forever in you heart.
