Dawson has also written for Star Wars (Phasma, Inquisitor: Rise of the Red Blade), and Minecraft. With her latest, Dawson presents a seemingly cozy tale of obsessive infatuation that quickly turns gruesomely violent. Kristi DeMeester (Such a Pretty Smile) says: “Gruesome and lovely, Bloom is compulsively readable. Like being slowly boiled alive, by the time you see the rot beneath the beauty, it’s already too late. You’re hooked.”, and Gwendolyn Kiste (Reluctant Immortals) says: “Sumptuous, strange, and horrifying, Bloom walks the tenuous line between the ultimate romance and the ultimate nightmare. Delilah S. Dawson has created quite an intense and terrifying couple in her characters of Ro and Ash, and by the time you’ve finished the last page of this book, you won’t soon forget them.” Paul Tremblay (The Pallbearers Club) says: “Sensual, smart, biting, and downright nasty, Bloom is a dizzying, heady feast for the discerning palate. I devoured this book in one greedy sitting.”
