About the Author

W. C. Bauers has worked on the sales side of publishing for more than thirteen years. Unbreakable is his first novel. His interests include Taekwondo, reading and writing military science fiction, toting gear for his Alpha Unit, and French press brewing. He lives in the Rocky Mountains with his wife and three boys.


"Unbreakable runs the gamut from close-quarters combat, to titanic space battles, to interstellar foreign policy as Promise and her marines are pinned down far from home, defending the planet Montana. What sets it apart is hinted at in the title: Paen and her soldiers are subjected to a rigorous and unrelenting campaign that tests their skills and resolve. Bauers demonstrates the real impact that war has on soldiers as their numbers dwindle over the course of the a never-ending battle." --Andrew Liptak, B&N blog "Unbreakable is a wonderful debut, with engaging characters (the dialog between Promise and her dead mother is a hoot), thrilling military action on land and in space, and a credible universe with good and not so good folk on both sides of humanity at war. I very much look forward to more of Promise Paen and her Marines." --BookLoons.com "Unbreakable is an exuberant read in the mold of David Weber's Honor Harrington series, with strong female characters and a welcome absence of overt romance. Promise is a believable, comfortable character who feels the death of every one of 'her marines' while leading the survivors in an against-the-odds battle with a significantly better-provisioned army. The military details seem authentic, but don't threaten to overwhelm or sidetrack this well-told story. W.C. Bauers's impressive debut will appeal to fans of hard and military science-fiction alike." --Rob LeFebvre, Shelf Awareness "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 "Fascinating characters, sprawling space politics and rivalries, cracking battles and awesome tech ...." --Smash Dragons "[Promise Paen] is a wonderful character for readers with a taste for the emotionality of honour, respect and duty." --The Nameless Zine
