One of Book Riot's "20 Must-Read Feel-Good Fantasies"
"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 "This is a special book that I loved immensely. Sometimes you find a book right when you need it, and I needed this book. It's endearing and heartfelt and just wonderful." --Shaun David Hutchinson, author of We Are the Ants "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 "TJ Klune is a master storyteller." --The Mary Sue A delightful tale about chosen families, and how to celebrate differences. --Library Journal This contemporary fantasy can satisfy any sweet tooth with its found family story and its gentle queer romance. --Book Riot "If ever there was an author to watch out for, [Klune] is definitely that author." --Culturess Daily
