Codename: Knight Ranger by John F. Allen

Captain Alexandre Cornelius "Neal" Du Bois is a US Army Ranger and decorated war hero. When his unit is ambushed by supernatural hostile forces while in Afghanistan, only Neal survives. When he wakes up in a secret government facility, Neal discovers that his whole life has changed forever.

A shadowy government agent named Elijah Bishop arranges for Neal's brain to be transplanted, without his permission, into a bio-engineered body capable of amazing feats. Armed with advanced body armor and weaponry, he becomes the epitome of the Ultra Soldier.

To protect his family and those closest to him, he must let the world and everyone he loves believe he is dead. With assistance from Dr. Avery Clarkson–the scientist responsible for his new body–Neal reluctantly utilizes his superhuman abilities to work for Bishop and his organization called G.E.N.E.S.I.S. (Global Espionage Network of Elite Supernatural Intelligence and Surveillance), in order to track down those responsible for the slaughter of his unit and keep the world safe from supernatural terrorist forces.

Codename: Knight Ranger is the action/espionage component of the "Ivoryverse" from the fertile imagination of John F. Allen. It springboards directly from an event in his novel The God Killers. You won't need to read God Killers to follow along, but if you haven't, you'll probably want to by the end. This tale is part Iron Man, Captain America, James Bond and Steve Austin, and it's all awesome. It's a dark modern techno-thriller that never forgets its old-fashioned patriotic roots. Army Ranger Captain “Neal” Du Bois is ambushed by hostile forces in Afghanistan. His life is saved through a modern technological miracle that leaves him better, get the idea. But Neal is rightfully suspicious of the organization he has to thank for his new powers as well as his life, and when he's called upon to lead a dangerous mission, Neal isn't sure he wants to cooperate. But will his mysterious benefactors give him a choice? Don't worry, this isn't heavy reading. Beneath all the tough guy grit, you'll find lots of fun two-fisted action that focuses on a character of goodness and integrity. I had a great time with Codename: Knight Ranger and you will, too. Luckily for all of us, there's more where that came from.

This book made think of the Six Million Dollar Man, Robocop, and oddly enough, Mary Shelley's original Frankenstein. John F. Allen's Codename: Knight Ranger is the dark origin story of a superhero who didn't ask for the job, whose very soul was forged in searing pain of a soldier who is torn apart and then put back together as a powerful cyborg. Allen raises many ethical questions through his characters as they debate over creating a supersoldier, who the real monster is.
