Staff Reviews


 

Umbrella Academy meets Sound of Music — Linus Baker, caseworker for the Department in Charge of Magical Youths and general rule-follower, is given a top-secret assignment to determine if the six (uniquely dangerous) children under the care of one Arthur Parnassus are safe where they are — and whether the rest of the world is safe from them. He expects the task to be difficult; what he doesn’t expect is to feel like he’s found a family, and a home. One that he would protect and defend no matter the cost. Heartwarming, comforting, beautifully written. In a genre filled with grimdark, we need more cozy fantasies like this.

The House in the Cerulean Sea is a heart-swelling wave of sweetness and hope. Mild-mannered government caseworker Linus Baker is sent on a secret assignment to an island orphanage he’s never even heard of. The astonishing inhabitants he gets to know there will change his life and make him reassess everything he thought he knew. This book will leave you believing in the good in everyone — even those society has given up on — and contemplating how huge changes have to start somewhere.”
