Editorial Reviews


"Bauers puts together characters who take up residence in your heart, the cold-blooded politics of the "Great Game," the power of devotion and loyalty, and the human cost carnage extracts from even the most courageous. I highly recommend it."
--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."  
-- Asimov's Science Fiction

From the Author

Greetings Starfighter!

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.  

Learn more about my books at wcbauers.com. Visit the Little Geek's page to download, print, and color Promise in her armor.   

Thanks for dropping by my part of the 'verse. I'm grateful!
