I'm hooked on these stories recently but I've hit a road block. When trying to obtain book 14 I have seen two different books listed as #14. These are "Shadow of Freedom" which is also listed as #3 in another sequence and "Uncompromising Honor" which, apparently, isn't released yet. I don't want to read stuff out of turn so should I read the two Saganami Island books before SoF or wait for UH? How much backtracking will be needed if I read SoF to get on track when UH comes out? I'm hanging out to carry on following the series.

A usual safe bet is to read them in publication order.
