Death and Desire, by Deborah Wilde is a fast past thrill ride with a smart mouthed woman leading the charge. In this second book of the series, we continue with the world Deborah has created in which some pep have power and some do not . Ash, the protagonist, is walking a tightrope between the two world and adding a third. To top it off, the non- magic society is starting to make trouble for those with magic; with non- other than Ash’s mother at the helm. This second book doesn’t loses its momentum at all as we continue down this rabbit hole.
