If you are a fan of Action-packed Urban fantasy served up with a side of adult humor, then look no further. The Ian Dex series delivers! - New York Times Best Selling Author Robyn Wideman
Ready for a ride? John P. Logsdon sends you on uproarious, breakneck adventures, catapulting you from page to page with his snappy, stylish writing. Packed with laugh-out-loud moments, edge-of-your-seat action, and endearing irreverence, Logsdon's books are raunchy, riveting, yet always full of heart. - Nazri Noor, author of the Darkling Mage series
What a hoot! A paranormal police department responsible for protecting the "normals" from the supernatural. Wizards, mages, succubus and more. The situations arise fast and furious, and it's up to Ian Dex and his crew to save the world... At least once a night, if not twice. - Amazon Reviewer
Excellent urban fantasy with wicked, snarky humor, a cast of original supernatural characters that make the pages fly past, and a storyline compelling enough to make me want to read this entire series right now. - Amazon Reviewer
Urban fantasy meets comedy. Quirky characters that I really want to continue to read about and see how they develop. Loved this book! - Amazon Reviewer

LONG VERSION - First in a series (seven deep as of the writing of this review) by the prolific dual John P. Logdon and Christopher P. Young, "The Merging" reads fast with tons of action and plus a little self-reflection - mostly judging who among the women in the room are the hottest. This is a "guy" book of comparing gun sizes to wand works; bathroom humor to situational comedy. Each battle has enough differences to stand out, but not enough that CGI or animation needs to make too many new stills. (I wouldn't want to read books back-to-back, but you can read a book all the way through in one sitting without a problem.)
Format? Think TV show -each episode can stand alone - and the writers of this series are kicking them out like TV scripts. Or better yet, James Bond, when they actually could be funny back in the sixties. I had a fun time reading the story.
Things I didn't like: jealousy - if everyone is sleeping with everyone because it is programmed in their DNA, then why are people upset? I'm not sure how many people saw the underlying tragedy of Ian only focusing on Rachel's voice, and him having to explain to her he can never be loyal to her. It got me right (sob) here - no, wait, that is heartburn.
Second thing - how utterly stupid Ian Dex is telling the bad guys things during the first chapter. Then the foot-in-mouth with the women on the squad. I don't care how powerful you are or good with paperwork. I disbelieve him being in charge of the squad. From that instant, I was partially disconnected from the story - as much as I enjoyed it, I didn't believe the world. I get it, this is a comedy. And the setups were for some great jokes. Hear me laugh ha.ha - situational comedy works best when the situation is believable.
Third thing - hoping for more police work; nothing in this story remotely resembles police work.
Good Brain Candy, I ate it up in a single night.

Be warned that when reading this to make sure you have no plans for the forseeable future as you will want to read it all in one sitting.
I hope to see the mythos of the book expand over any sequels.
Unlike other stories of Urban Fantasy the heroes are all too Human and believable with a great sense of humour thrown in especially with the main characters.
As a previous reader and fan of John Logsdon i was a little wary of this his first foray into the UF world but found to my great delight a great fresh outlook.
No spoilers but i love this book and im already eagerly awaiting the 2nd book.
The characters and their relationships flowed well throughout the story, overall a well thought out plot and an interesting twist with the main characters powers. Cant wait for the next instalment.
