Promise Paen, captain of Victor Company's mechanised armoured infantry, is back for another adventure protecting the Republic of Aligned Worlds. Lieutenant Paen barely survived her last encounter with the Lusitanian Empire. She's returned home to heal. But the nightmares won't stop. And she's got a newly reconstituted unit of green marines to whip into shape before they are deployed. If the enemies of the Republic don't kill them first, she just might do the job herself. Light-years away, on the edge of the Verge, a massive vein of rare ore is discovered on the mining planet Sheol, which ignites an arms race and a proxy war between the Republic and the Lusitanians. Paen and Victor Company are ordered to Sheol, to reinforce the planet and hold it at all costs. On the eve of their deployment, a friendly-fire incident occurs, putting Paen's career in jeopardy and stripping her of her command. When the Lusitanians send mercenaries to raid Sheol and destabilise its mining operations, matters reach crisis level. Disgraced and angry, Promise is offered one shot to get back into her mech suit. But she'll have to jump across the galaxy and possibly storm the gates of hell itself.

Reviews

Praise for The Chronicles of Promise Paen"Bauers' debut is an impressive achievement, set in an enormous, complex universe that combines large-scale action with the emotional journey of one truly unique heroine." --RT Book Reviews"This is a solid, well-crafted military SF." --Booklist"Military science fiction with a kick-butt female lead ..." --Kirkus Reviews"The action scenes are plentiful; however, while Bauer sketches in the outline of the politics shaping Montana's history, a strong picture of why the various forces are fighting for control of the planet is never really conveyed."--Library Journal"On the whole, though, a very, um, promising debut novel." --Booklist"Bauer's debut needs to grow into its powered boots." --Publishers Weekly"Action-packed, character-rich and mil spec'd to the max. Empires may rise but this backwater rules!" --Dani Kollin, co-author of The Unincorporated Man"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 Cambias, author of A Darkling Sea"Bauer 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"Lieutenant Promise Paen really doesn't need the voice of her dead mother nagging her as she stands at the threshold of interstellar war. Or, does she? Unbreakable is a little bit Starship Troopers and a little bit Esmay Suiza, with a dash of Firefly for flavor. W.C. Bauers gives us everything we want in our military science fiction, but never allows the hardware and action to overshadow Paen and everyone else caught in the crossfire."--Dayton Ward, New York Times bestselling author of The Last World War Praise for The Chronicles of Promise Paen Bauers debut is an impressive achievement, set in an enormous, complex universe that combines large-scale action with the emotional journey of one truly unique heroine.
