--David Weber, New York Times bestselling author of the Honor Harrington series
"Fans of military sci-fi will find plenty to love about this series-opener: a promising protagonist, a colorful band of brothers, and plenty of powered armor battle action."
--Jim Killen, B&N Sci-Fi and Fantasy blog
"It's almost a cliche to compare military SF novels to Starship Troopers, but this is the real deal. Bauers has created a gritty, complex story Heinlein would have been proud of."
--James L. Cambias, author of A Darkling Sea
"...a fun, exhilarating read that comfortably fits on the shelf alongside John Scalzi's Old Man's War and Marko Kloos's Frontlines novels."
--Andrew Liptak, LightSpeed Magazine
"Unbreakable is hardcore military SF straight from the loins of Heinlein and Pournelle and Drake, but with a smattering of genes from A. Bertram Chandler and Poul Anders and Christopher Anvil...making it not a slavish imitation, but rather a smart synthesis of its ancestors."
From the Author
If you like strong female protagonists, futuristic warfare, and Space Opera, then I write for you.
My protagonist, Promise Paen, has been compared to Katee Sackhoff's Starbuck meets STARSHIP TROOPERS, with a dash of FIREFLY. UNBREAKABLE and INDOMITABLE made "best-of" lists from B&N, Amazon.com, i09, and The Verge. Andrew Liptak of B&N's Sci-fi Blog counted UNBREAKABLE among 5 New Books that Show the Future of Military Sci-Fi. Mysterious Galaxy and Powell's bookstores honored UNBREAKABLE with a "staff pick." But Promise is a character all her own. I hope you get the chance to meet her.
