First I just wanted to say that I really love your books, and I think the world that you have imagined is just fascinating!
I do have a question about the wolf diamond though. Sorry if you have already answered it somewhere else or if I'm just being an obsessive fan and overthinking things. What exactly qualifies as stealing to the wolf diamond? I know that a person can't take the diamond by force, and it must be given to the new owner. But at the end of Magic Strikes, Curran and Aunt B both pick it up off of the floor of the palace. However, wouldn't the diamond still technically be in the rakshasas' possession at the time since it was still in their building? In other words, will the shapeshifters have a problem in the future with the diamond's curse since the stone wasn't really formally given to them?
I hope this makes sense. Like I said before, maybe I'm just overthinking things
