Josephine remains unaware of the powers that observe her. The fragmented memories and strange premonitions become stronger every day, and the sense of something missing and slightly out of reach keeps her on edge. She cannot dismiss the handsome face, the haunting eyes, or the feelings that are stirring deep inside. It’s time to seek answers. Compelled to return to Africa, ...more

L. Hi Jennifer!
I'm working on the sequel - about 90% done. It's off to the publisher after that. I'll try not to make you wait too long!!!

I don't usually read romance. All the boy-meets-girl stuff bores me. Same goes for vampires.
This book is a vampire romance. In theory, that should have sent me screaming into the night.
It didn't. This book is so well written, it will draw you in whether you care for the genre or not. Ebo isn't your run-of-the-mill vampire, and Josephine isn't some kind of swooning sissy. Both are strong, clearly painted characters, whom you can't help rooting for.
And don't you dare compare this to Twilight.

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).

I'm not a huge vampire story fan by any means, and romance is simarly hit or miss. With that said, this novel makes me question both those statements. The story was so well done. I was absolutely hooked on the characters from start to finish. I devoured this book as quickly as I could, and loved every page of it. Ms. Lombard has done a terrific job, and I commend her for the work. five huge, shiny stars from me, and I highly recommend Ebo to everyone.

Move over Twilight - there's a new vamp in town! This book takes you away and keeps you in a forbidden fantasy. Great reading!

What a beautiful story, and very intriguing! Being from South Africa and having lived in Botswanna/Zambia for a good while, I will say that after reading this, I miss home.

Moving on!

The book is very well written, and filled with action. While it is a romance, it is also a thriller and definitely a mystery. I ADORE Kiki, everyone needs a friend like that.

Miss Lombard managed to spin a tale both creative and believable to that 'what if' point. I smiled, several times as I recognised a few elements

I have received the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I like paranormal/fantasy but I’m not in general a huge fan of vampires, simply because there are so many vampire books and they mostly describe the creatures the same way. This was an exception however. Ashling had many of the typical vampire traits of course, but he felt oddly human and somehow plausible (plausible vampire, quite a feat to manage that contradiction). I actually didn’t quite like Josephine as much as I li

Lola Kyle Reviews::::: 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 ...more

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, and here it is. Ebo was so much more than I had hoped it would be. I'm not a fan of Twilight, so I wasn't sure how I'd take the whole vampire romance aspect, but it was great. The book kept me engaged (I would've read it faster, but it was my first time reading an ebook and I wasn't used to staring at a screen for that long), and the plot was so different than anything I've read before. I really loved the characters of Josey ...more

I received the Book, Ebo, free through the We YA Books! Group, courtesy of the author L. Lombard, in exchange for an honest review.

This is the first time I have had the pleasure of reviewing a book by L. Lombard. I enjoyed every minute I spent reading this story... And wish I had a follow up that I could immediately dive into.

YA Paranormal Romance is one if my favorite genres. Lombard has brought us, through Ebo, another entertaining world of vampires. While many themes or characteristics were

Ebo is a cute nickname!

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 i

'Ebo' is the story of a teenage girl Josephine and the vampire who is deeply connected to her.

I don't always enjoy young adult novels but this was very well written. The story seemed well thought out and the characters believable. There is a good bit of suspense and a bit of action in the book, but the focus is mainly on the romance between Josephine and the vampire. It's a very sweet sort of romance, ideal for younger teenage readers. I found the romantic element a little cloying at times, but

I've been reading Ebo for quite a while, just a couple of pages every couple of nights, but last night the climax from the last 20% of the book became so enthralling that I couldn't put it down. Now that I've finished the book I feel like I've lost an old friend. Luckily the book ended with enough room for a sequel, so I'm hoping for that.
Ebo is the story of Ashling, a monster who comes across a strange little girl. She's very different, in a paranormal sort of way. Will he destroy her, or will

New author for me and I was grateful to check out the book. Each author does a different take on vampire lore and I enjoyed this book. Really hoping there is another to come with the way it ended it has me wanting to know what is going to happen next. I honestly fell in love with Ebo/Ashling. With everything he went through he's come a long way and finally is able to be honest with his feeling towards Josephine. They are a great couple and I look forward to seeing more of them and they other ...more

I'm not usually one for vampire novels but this story has a little something different about it. The first 3 chapters totally grabbed my attention and then I just had to finish it. Lots of suspense and drama married well with a strong romantic element. I really liked the African setting too. Strong female protagonist and well rounded characters make Ebo quite an interesting read. I'm looking forward to the next book.

Love Ebo

Loved this book, characters grow as the story progresses. Joseph and ebony are great together, but can a vampire love a human? Twists and turns in this book which keeps you guessing what's going to happen. Highly recommend reading..
