The House in the Cerulean Sea by T. J. Klune - A Review


Today we are talking about The House in the Cerulean Sea by T. J. Klune published on March 2020 by Tor Books.

Disclaimer: I received an eARC from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

The House in the Cerulean Sea is a contemporary fantasy book about finding family in an unexpected place. It is a wonderful, heartwarming story that makes you feel good. 
As the author T. J. Klune says: " [The book] is a love letter to those who should be allowed to feel small and cared for when the world seems dark". I couldn't agree more.
If you cannot tell, I love this book. The writing is beautiful and I loved all the characters. 
The author explores the fear and prejudice that exists in society and gives us a message of hope that we can change it if we start with few first.

Rating: 5 Stars

Synopsis from Godreads:
A magical island. A dangerous task. A burning secret.
Linus Baker leads a quiet, solitary life. At forty, he lives in a tiny house with a devious cat and his old records. As a Case Worker at the Department in Charge Of Magical Youth, he spends his days overseeing the well-being of children in government-sanctioned orphanages.
When Linus is unexpectedly summoned by Extremely Upper Management he's given a curious and highly classified assignment: travel to Marsyas Island Orphanage, where six dangerous children reside: a gnome, a sprite, a wyvern, an unidentifiable green blob, a were-Pomeranian, and the Antichrist. Linus must set aside his fears and determine whether or not they’re likely to bring about the end of days.
But the children aren’t the only secret the island keeps. Their caretaker is the charming and enigmatic Arthur Parnassus, who will do anything to keep his wards safe. As Arthur and Linus grow closer, long-held secrets are exposed, and Linus must make a choice: destroy a home or watch the world burn.
An enchanting story, masterfully told, The House in the Cerulean Sea is about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place—and realizing that family is yours.
