What would you say to the Antichrist? It’s probably not a question you’ve thought of often. Or maybe it is, I don’t know your life. In this audio excerpt of The House in the Cerulean Sea by T. J. Klune, Linus Baker finds himself facing the Antichrist, and it’s quite clear that he has not considered what he would do in such a situation. And that’s to say nothing of Arthur Parnassus, master of the orphanage where the little Antichrist is staying, and someone even more mysterious.
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. Check out the first audio clip in our series here and the second here. Keep an eye out for the next excerpt, coming soon!
