    Actually, Captain Vorpatril’s Alliance should be between Diplomatic Immunity and Cryoburn. It takes place not long after the events of the former and 3 or 4 years before the latter.

      Thanks for clearing that up! I think I was working off an official list with up to Cryoburn and I just added the newest book at the end.
