"I was totally blown away by Ebo. It was such a new, smart and refreshing take on the Vamp story angle, and I expect no less from Night Orchid." - Butterfly's Booknerdia blog
"So I finally get to say how much I enjoyed reading EBO!!! Such a page gripping (and page turning) novel which entertained me, transported me and disconnected me from reality. EBO had a special unique quality which made it different from other paranormal romance novels...and yet the romance reminded me of what true romance can be..." - Carley Ruiz
"Not going to lie, I am kind of picky about Vampire novels. There are so many these days. This one I actually really enjoyed! I felt like there were some unique elements dealing with vampires in addition to some classic vampire content.
Ashling and Josephine are both compelling characters and they really make you root for them. I found the way they interact with each other adorable with a hint of sexy.
The cultural aspect of this book is very interesting. I don't know what is based in reality and what is purely fictional, but I thought it was all very interesting and not something I typically see associated with Vampires, particularly the scenes in Africa.
Overall this was a great read and I am excited to see what comes next." - Meghan Johnson
"I found Ebo to be a book that I enjoyed reading and returning to at the end of a busy day. The writer has skillfully written a story that draws the reader into the lives, the love and the adventurous story line of its characters, but at the same time it is a book that I feel comfortable recommending to my young adult friends and family members. I am a mother of teenagers, however I found myself easily drawn into the story and its characters, and anxious to read the next chapter! Hopefully there will be a sequel to Ebo, as the end left me with wanting to read more." - 6flowers.
"First I thought it was going to be a corny love story, then by reading more I wondered if it was more.
The story is compelling, once I started it was hard to put it away, had to read one more chapter!
I have the feeling this is the beginning of a series..." - Daniel Ordaz.
"Ebo by L.Lombard has proven itself to be a book to be reckoned with. This young adult paranormal is simply riveting. Can you imagine being thrown into a world that you never knew existed? That the man you're destined to love is forever 22 or that he's the reason you've lost everything? Josephine is young child and not yet a woman when she meets EBO, the one man she's destined to love, but forgets exist as she is faced with a series of unfortunate events that will eventually lead her back to him.
The way that the author weaves this tale is by far the most unique story I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Though the creatures of our myths are the same. She spins a refreshing tale. Though at time I was a bit confused. One line Ebo says, I am never hot or cold. I am always this temperature, but how is it he can feel the cool wall against his back?
Other than that dilemma, L. Lombard writes a clean cut romance, one that everyone can enjoy from young to old. Filled with plot twists and laughter, this book should be added to your TBR. The eyes have it! This author has written a hit!" - Lola Kyle
"What a very different story this is! And as far from the usual formulaic vampire genre as it could possibly be. Ebo is moving, tender, frightening, and thrilling, in equal measure. The love affair between Ashling (Ebo) and Josey is so natural that I didn't question it once. L.Lombard writes with flair and poise and with a timelessness that is a joy. I look forward to reading the rest of the series (soon, hopefully)." - jane63.
"Ebo was such an enjoyable read. Josey is a typical teenager in (almost) all ways. Her relationship with Ashling is a whirlwind - but one you won’t grow tired of. The way that their story progresses will surprise you, but you’ll be hooked! From Africa, to BC, to London, and back to Africa, this was a story that I couldn’t put down. I can’t wait for the sequel!" - Elizabeth Snavely.
"Move over Twilight - there's a new vamp in town! This book takes you away and keeps you in a forbidden fantasy. Great reading!" - E. Graziani.
"I am sitting at SB and have just finished EBO. I really enjoyed it and have had it on my mind all week as I juggled my time so I could finish it. Your writing took me to that place within us all that squeals, giggle, sighs, blushes and pines over young, forever and always love. SO FUN! Congratulations! I am in awe of you and so proud. Waiting for book 2!" - Misty Lynne.
