In Bloom is a psychological thriller. There is a psychopathic obsession with dark revelations to uncover.
Lie upon lie, i am bound; encapsulated by terror. Frozen in his presence, the coldness that lives in his eyes. I will not sleep tonight. Torn into pieces, so he can mould my new shape. Broken, I sit and wait in his webbed, twisted heaven. Will it be tonight?
The book opens with the thoughts of Ali who is hurt and bleeding, having been attacked by her boyfriend (Mal). It becomes rapidly clear that Ali suffers from paranoia and that Mal himself is shady, withholding vital secrets from the reader. Questions arise such as: How deluded is Ali? WIll Mal have her committed? Is corrupt Mal capable of murder? The heart of the book consists of the reader deciding which of the two main characters is insane, and is also concerned with the extreme emotions can have on human behaviour.
