And the kid's name changes, and the Primes' wardrobe changes. And I'm not clear on whether Placeholder High reflected snark on Catalina's part, or procrastination on the part of the ALs. However:

NOT COMPLAINING. It was awesome.

I have already read Diamond Fire!  It's good - I'm really looking forward to the next full novel in the series.

I stayed up to read it last night. Definitely had me laughing.

I hope Alessandro didn't completely give up and that we will see him again.

I think they've mentioned that he will be in the next books.

Excellent. I either missed that or forgot.

I really enjoyed Diamond Fire, and the new chapter. And I'm immensely enjoying how the new Maven is taking hold.  Maud is putting her Innkeeper's knowledge to great use, to the benefit of House Krahr and the lees and the Tachi. There's going to be a ripple effect from this;  Lady Dil’ki and Nuan Cee will prosper in their societies for it's success, the trade station is will benefit a large number of spacefaring peoples, and Maud's name will be associated with it as news spreads. The long-travelling brother may even hear of her and decide to visit.

Both were fabulous reads and most excellent distractions from the current political polarization.

Given that the brother is an Arbitrator and according to Sweep In Peace, the Arbitrators are forbidden from returning to their home dimension, I'm not looking for him to show up any time soon in this one.  Definitely once they're closer to finding their parents, though.

Regarding Maude as Maven, I really liked the depiction.  It was very action-y, but a different kind of action.  Maude, if you haven't made yourself indispensable to House Krahr by the end of the wedding, I shall eat my own arm.  It's a safe bet because she's already 99% there.  lol.

I'd forgotten that Klaus was an Arbiter. Oh, zooterkins, I might be forced to a re-read! And Maud/Maude is indispensable to House Krahr, the question is when did/will they notice it.

Pretty sure they already have. I seriously doubt they offer random GFs the post of Maven.
