~*♥Release Blitz with Review♥*~ Hades (Modern Descendants) by Elda Lore

Title: Hades
Series: Modern Descendants
Author: Elda Lore (L.B. Dunbar writing as)
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 24, 2016


“Welcome to Hell.”

Persephone Fields is just an average girl: beloved daughter and loyal friend. One night decides her Fate, when the prince of The Underworld becomes her savior and her kidnapper.

Hades has lived centuries in darkness and sin. When he decides to save the blonde goddess, he doesn’t consider the ramifications of his decision to bring her into his realm.

Two worlds divided struggle to find friendship in a history of family discord beyond their control. When attraction blurs the line, questions result in choices of love or loyalty.

A modern twist of the classic myth: Hades and Persephone, this version incorporates the sensual tension of opposites divided by contemporary humanity and mythical underworlds. Also reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet, this is a love story ripe with desire.


Author’s note: This book contains scenes of sexual intimacy.

Rating: ★★★★
Reviewer: Melyssa
I’ve already admired L.B Dunbar’s ability to take a tale as old as time and put a new spin on it, one modernized for the times we’re living in now. It’s what keeps me coming back for more with her, along with the style at which she writes.

So when the opportunity came up to experience her in yet another light, one rich with fantasy, but with the same kind of elements that got me hooked into her stories to begin with, I didn’t hesitate.

Under the name Elda Lore, she brings to life a modern retelling of classic Greek Mythology. Something that in my younger years, with my penchant for wanting to read anything and everything, captivated me then and through this story now, has done it again.

It was magical in the way the story of Hades and Persephone was brought to light, while at the same time holding onto the more emotional and sensual driven elements that make this authors work, no matter what name it is written under, so incredibly great. I ran the emotional gamut while reading, highs and lows, love and hate. I felt it all. The story…these characters, and even the author herself, delivered one hell of a story.

I will admit that at the start it took a little getting used to, what with me having deviated away in recent years from this type of read, but once I was able to put myself in this world, with these characters, there was no going back. I was all in. And I think that any fan of mythology, especially modernized retellings, or fans of the authors previous works will feel the same if they take the chance on it.

It’s my hope though that this won’t be a one off and we’ll be seeing more from this author, with this style of writing in the future. I’m looking forward to being swept away again.

My thanks to the author and all others involved in letting me read this before official release. This was a journey I’m so honored to have taken and I can’t wait to do it again in the future.
