Solis by Author L. B. Dunbar, writing as Elda Lore is book two in the Modern Descendants series. It is a paranormal/Greek mythology romance novel.

"I believe in Destiny. I believe in finding the one. The one who will complete me. The other half of me. The one opposite and whole for me."

Solis equals swoon, swoony, swoon. This god-man never stopped. I understood why women followed him around like lost puppy dogs and were happy just to be graced with his shadow. He was too large for life and better

Screw it... I know I said Jan 30th, but I don't want to wait...

Once again, I’m in love with L. B. Dunbar’s writing. I’ll admit, the style of Solis is unique (imo) you might need to be in the mood for it. The flow, the form, the essence of Solis reminds me a rose covered arbor. Vines, both thick and delicate, laced through a solid support, with thorns placed sporadically, and dotted with joyful, bright, sun kissed blossoms. That is Solis.

Veva is wary (okay, nearly petrified) to put any faith in

Good gods, these Modern Descendants get better and better!
Solis and Veva are, to say the least, a fiery pair... She trusts no one, and he was a player till he met her. You see a great love story forming with every push and pull of this couple. It is a great addition to the paranormal world, and i am looking forward to the next Modern Descendant!

Elda Lore aka L.B. Dunbar blew my mind with Hades (book #1 in The Modern Descendants series), giving me an unforgettable story of epic proportions  that landed straight on my most favorite reads list of 2016. Of course I was curious to find out if she can manage to keep this high level and what she would make of book #2 about Solis and Veva.

Let me tell you that she didn't disappoint! As a truly gifted wordsmith she took me on a wonderful journey where reality and aspects of Greek mythology were

I read to escape. I love to get lost in a story! I was completely entranced by Solis and Veva!!
The first few chapters had me hooked. It had two of my favorite elements a badboy changed by love and an ex b#tch so I knew it was going to be good. What I didn't know was how much I was going to fall in love with this story, their romance, their battles their everything. I couldn't read it fast enough but then I wanted to slow down because I didn't want the story to end.

Once again Elda Lore has captured the essence of Greek mythology. Solis is a fantastic addition to the Modern Descendants Sereies. The story of Solis and Veva had me hooked from page one. I wanted to fly with Solis and paint with Veva. The return of Hades and Persephone also gave me chills, bringing back all the emotion of the first book, Hades. I absolutely adore Elda Lore's writing and can not wait for the next installment of this amazing and intriguing series.

Loved this! Well developed characters, smooth storyline. Definitely hot! More than anything else though was the ups and downs of the 2 main characters. The story keeps the reader guessing straight through until the very end. I would highly recommend this!

Elda Lore – Solis

This book was not what I was expecting.
I don’t read blurbs, and it was a struggle with this book because most of the names were from Greek mythology and I thought it was just coincidence, until I stumbled into the words ‘underworld’, ‘power’, and ‘heaven’ Now my first impression was that the modern world and the myth wasn’t mixed well, there were some scenes that I find awkward, like a bad sitcom that was made for laughs. It did get better as the book progress, though some scene

First off if you know your Greek Mythology, ignore it. While some parts of this stick to the true legends a lot of it kind of takes its own twist and if trying to compare it to what you know you will get confused lol.
However this is an awesome story. Solis knows who he is. Vera is still in the dark. Persephone never told her what was up with "Harris" so she doesn't know anything.
As far as she knows her uncle Zeke is just a whore and Solis is another on a long list of children.

I have always loved Greek mythology. I studied it for fun when I was younger.
I was ecstatic when I stumbled across this story.
Its Greek mythology revisited, set in modern times.
This story is an adjusted retelling of Zeus & Hera's kids (whom are destined for each other).
Veva has a huge mistrust of the male species & one male in particular, Solis.
The heroine was strong, fiesty & very set in her ways.
The hero was patient, calm & able to handle the harshness from his love.

I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. I also preordered it on Amazon. Solis is book 2 in the Modern Decendants Series. Persephone and Veva were invited to their Uncle Zeke's home for the summer for some R&R. Veva meets a Greek God of a man she immediately deems a player and wants no part of. Her mother has raised her that all men are untrustworthy, bad, and will leave. But it's something about Solis that seems to be pulling her to him like a moth to a flame. If Solis wants ...more

So much good! If you haven't read Hades, you are missing out. This can be read as a stand alone but I really recommend Hades.

Vee is unsure of men and their intentions no matter how good they are. Her mother raised her to be distrusting of all men and to add to it, her father abandoned her.

Solis, a player through and through but down deep he wants to find his one. Suffering from his own abandonment issues and his determination to not fulfill a prophecy, he never saw Vee coming.

The Modern Descendants series by Elda Lore is becoming a fast new favorite of mine! Solis and Veva are two people who couldn't be more perfect for each-other. A feisty young women who has a hard time trusting anyone, and a man who usually gets what he wants.

A fast paced romance that will make your heart SING!

Solis I couldn't help but fall in love with him. When he firsts sets eyes on Veva, he knows he must have her. Soon they begin a friendship of sorts that turn into so much more. Slowly he f

I thoroughly enjoyed this 2nd book in the series, it can easily be read as a stand alone book mind, as this version of Greek gods and goddesses and their off spring are so much more human and at the same time they are not, that it kept me spell bound. I just had to finish this book and found it very hard to put down. As the story is so refreshingly 'new' I can recommend it to anyone, even if you are not familiar with Greek mythology, you will enjoy this far from stuffy and boring story. I can ha ...more

Solis gave me all the feels I love to experience when reading a story! I'm not a connoisseur of Greek mythology, having never taken a class in HS or college. I know some of the basics, most popular gods and a few of their stories, but definitely not in detail. I have to look up these characters to get a better detailed understanding of their history/story because the story makes me want to understand the underlying myth. Solis follows the story of Zeus and Hera, but through each of their off-spr ...more

Ooh how I loved Solis!!! This book mixes mythology with today's world. I could see everything so perfect, I felt like I was soaring on the windjammer, climbing cliffs, being pushed out of my comfort zone and loving every minute of it.

Veva has not had great relationship experiences. Her own dad showed her men don't stay faithful and stay around. She expects no less from Solis. He's shown everyone that he's a lover but he doesn't do relationships. He makes that known up front so it's no shock to

When Vera travels to her family friends country estate for the summer with her best friend Persephone she was expecting a relaxing trip away. But she wasn't counting on Solis Cronus.

At 1st Veva loathes Solis because she just sees him as a user, a playboy. But who can say no to a god? Over time she thaws to him, i think the turning point was when they painted. There was more to it. He is determined to prove himself to her. There phrase is "I will follow you". They both hold true to the statement.

We also saw more of Persephony and Hade. I still want to understand what happens with them and the fact they still have to be

Bad boy Solis, a player, son of Zeke.
Veva a hot tempered bitch, who thanks to her mother, hates men.
Their world's collide on the estate of Zeke during the summer.
Can Veva be "the one" for Solis? Can he convince her that not all men are to be hated?
Another hit from the author, especially if you enjoy your Greek mythology. I recommend reading Hades first if you can but this can be read as a stand alone and boy does it build.

What a fun story full of flirtatious behavior, fun games and scandal. New and old characters bring some fun to the story and can't wait for the next book to come. A really sexy, romantic love story about destiny and never giving up on what you want!

Fantasy based stories are normally not the first ones I’ll reach for when reading. Not because I can’t find enjoyment in them, but because, normally, when an author takes on the undertaking of writing fantasy, there are worlds that need to be brought to life, characters, such as gods, fairies, and the lik

This is the second book in the Modern Descendants series. If you didn't know this is L.B. Dunbar writing as Elda Lore. If you read the first book Hades then you know it's a modern twist on Greek Mythology. Not only does she put together my love of the Greek Mythology but a sexy man and a woman with men issues. You just know this book is going to be filled with amazing things.

Veva Matron is a sassy woman who is spending her summer together with Persephone Fields at Zeke Cronus' sprawling estate
