Lambda Literary Award-winning author TJ Klune's bestselling, breakout contemporary fantasy that's " 1984 meets The Umbrella Academy with a pinch of Douglas Adams thrown in." (Gail Carriger)

Linus Baker is a by-the-book case worker in the Department in Charge of Magical Youth. He's tasked with determining whether six dangerous magical children are likely to bring about the end of the world.

Arthur Parnassus is the master of the orphanage. He would do anything to keep the children safe, even if it means the world will burn. And his secrets will come to light.

The House in the Cerulean Sea is an enchanting love story, masterfully told, about the profound experience of discovering an unlikely family in an unexpected place--and realizing that family is yours.

" 1984 meets The Umbrella Academy with a pinch of Douglas Adams thrown in." --Gail Carriger, New York Times bestselling author of Soulless

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Linus Baker is a caseworker in the Department in Charge of Magical Youth. He takes his job very seriously, asks few questions, and is absolutely committed to the truth in his reports. When he is summoned before Extremely Upper Management, he has no idea what to expect. They send him to a remote orphanage with six magical children and a caretaker named Arthur Parnassus. Extremely Upper Management provides him with woefully inadequate information, and instructions to be completely honest about what he finds at the island orphanage. The results are, quite likely, not at all what management expected. 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. The world is harsh magical people are required to register with the government, and there are quite a lot of rules but the orphanage is a place where perhaps there is room for people to understand one another instead of blindly fearing the unknown.--Regina Schroeder Copyright 2020 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Quirk and charm give way to a serious exploration of the dangers of complacency in this delightful, thought-provoking Orwellian fantasy from Klune (Heartsong). Caseworker Linus Baker of the Department in Charge of Magical Youths (DICOMY) believes he is doing right by the preternaturally gifted children placed in DICOMY-sanctioned orphanages. But Linus begins to question DICOMY's methods when the ominous Extremely Upper Management tasks Linus with evaluating the isolated Marsyas Island Orphanage and reporting not only on the island's extraordinary children--among them a female gnome, a blob of uncertain species who wants to be a bellhop, and a shy teenage boy who turns into a small dog when startled--but also on the orphanage master, Arthur Parnassus. The bonds Linus forms with the children and the romantic connection he feels for Arthur set Linus on a path toward redemption for the unwitting harm he caused as a cog in an uncaring bureaucratic machine. By turns zany and heartfelt, this tale of found family is hopeful to its core. Readers will revel in Klune's wit and ingenuity. Agent: Diedre Knight, The Knight Agency (March)"
