Dark Star by A. R. DeClerck
They broke his bones, laid him bare, and injected him with nanites, all for the sanctity of life. Primary One was the first of the Aeon Project warriors. He was broken and filled with darkness until Yurie. Their love and their children kept him alive. When they took Yurie from him and bound him in Command Programming, he vowed that he would protect their sons. He never expected to learn that she was still alive after all this time.
Trapped in a cryo-chamber, her neural implants malfunctioning, Yurie lived every moment of twenty-three years awake inside her mind. Only the faint memory of her sons and her husband pulled her from her prison. She wandered the empty halls of the abandoned Emperius Labs until a stranger appeared and offered her true freedom. As her memories returned so did her feelings for the man they called One.
One only wants to take Yurie home to their sons where she belongs, but there are others watching Emperius, and they will make sure that One and Yurie don’t get out alive.
An annihilation wave is rising to eradicate organic life across the galaxy. Love is all they have, but will it be enough to stop the Truppen threat?
