Read-a-Thon update

I'm now at page 238 in Mark of the Lion and taking a pause to update my blog and check the progress in the PUF Swap at BookObsessed. It dawned on me that I hadn't prepared my reveal for the swap and I needed to do that as well as send it via PM (personal message) to a couple of the swappers.

Mark of the Lion by Suzanne ArrudaPage 238 out of 338; roughly 70% of the way through the book. I am definitely enjoying it and quite pleased that there are 5 more in this series. The back of the book reads:

In 1919, when most women only dream of adventure, Jade del Cameron lives it. After growing up tough on a New Mexico ranch and driving an ambulance on the front lines of World War I, she can fire a rifle with deadly precision and stare down men maddened by shell shock. Still suffering trauma from the Great War, she sets off for Africa determined to fulfill a man's dying wish...

With his last breath, Jade's beloved David asked her to fine the brother he only recently learned he had. All clues point Jade to the East African city of Nairobi, where she soon has reason to belive that David's father was murdered. She hears the natives wihisper about a laibon—a witch doctor—terrorizing the land. They speak of being attacked by wild beasts that bear strange shaved patterns and bone beads in their fur—signs of animals being mystically guided by an avenging human.

In a land where tribal traditions clash with the so-called civilization of unruly British expatriates, Jade must draw upon all her ingenuity and courage to unmask the truth, expose the killer...and stay alive to fight another day.
