A Casa do Mar Gerúleo

Author: TJ Klune


Linus Baker leads a solitary and quiet life. At forty, he lives in the city, where it only rains and the days are gray, in an old house, in the company of a feisty cat and their vinyl records.

As an employee of a department that cares for and protects children with magical powers, Linus is given a top secret assignment: traveling to the orphanage on Marsyas Island, run by the charming and enigmatic Arthur Parnassus. There reside six children with potentially dangerous abilities: a 200-year-old gnome, a forest fairy, a snake, a boy who transforms into a Pomeranian, an amorphous green blob, and the Antichrist. Linus must put aside his fears and realize whether or not they can bring about the end of days.

Children are not, however, the island's only secret. In the end, a decision will have to be made by Linus Baker: destroy a space and a family he unexpectedly became attached to, or watch the world burn. A romance that will leave your soul in good hands and your heart in the right place.
