    Summary

    Zoe Chapelwhite was not the falling in love type. Perhaps it’d happened once or twice, in her younger days. And if she’s really being honest, it was just the once. Dating wasn’t exactly going to come easy to a young unregistered sprite. But even as she got older, she soon came to realise that people were not easy to fall in love with. It didn’t seem to be that way for everybody else. Take Arthur, for example. The man had been in forced proximity with two different men on two separate occasions over the last few years and had managed to immediately fall for both of them.

    Men, she often thought to herself, are ridiculous.

    Her heart just didn’t work in such ways.

    Summary

    For most people, the big advertisement on the daily news paper announcing that the ‘Annual Marsyas Renaissance Fair’ was open wouldn’t be as big as a concern to most people. But Mr. Arthur Parnassus thinks there’s a slight issue. He had avoided it like the plague at all costs for as long as he could remember, and he planned on doing just that again, until,

    Summary

    Two lamps were the only sources of light in the bedroom, each sitting on a nightstand on either side of the bed. Arthur had already changed for the night and was sitting up, a book open on his knees and glasses perched on the end of his nose. “Good evening, Mr. Parnassus.”

    Linus smiled. He rather liked the feeling. “Good evening, Mr. Baker,” he replied.

    Summary

    “It’s just a book,” he says. “I was stupid.”

    He doesn’t elaborate, but Arthur comes to place a pleasantly heated hand on his shoulder. Linus can’t help but lean into it.

    “It’s just a book. But books can be very significant,” Arthur says [...] "Locke’s Two Treatises of Government, for instance.”

    At that, Linus has to turn and give Arthur a frown. “You ridicule Bentham and then you talk about Locke.”

    “I’d love to rehash this debate, my dear. Let’s start with Descartes.”

    That particular morning debate lasts about four minutes before the two of them have to hurry to get down for breakfast on time.

    Linus Baker comes to stay at Marsyas Island to be a part of the family he found, growing closer with his new loved ones. Arthur Parnassus starts to overcome his fear of exposing the children to the outside world with Linus's help. Zoe Chapelwhite considers her bonds, and who she'll let into her home.

    The children continue to be themselves, and terrifyingly, even begin to grow up.

    A story over time about a family--the joys they experience and the challenges they face.

    Summary

    Arthur Parnassus is an unconventional master of an orphanage for magical youth. At forty-five, he lives in a house in a cerulean sea with six children and an island sprite for company. But his semi-idyllic life is about to change.

    The events of The House in the Cerulean Sea from the perspective of one Arthur Parnassus. When another DICOMY caseworker is assigned to Marsyas Island, he worries. Hopefully, this doesn’t signal the beginning of the end of the life he fought to build. Hopefully, the children will behave, as much as they can.

    Hopefully, Arthur won’t fall in love with this one.
