Decadent Decade Monday - Big City Collection by Cynthia Sax

The number one reason I like collections is because they offer great value to readers. The stories in the Big City Collection are priced at $1.60 each. That’s a bargain!

Many of my stories are loosely connected, set in the same world or with the same type of paranormal, and all of my stories (excluding my serial – He Watches Me, He Touches Me, He Claims Me) can be read on their own.

Does putting these stories into a collection improve the reading experience?

With the Big City stories, the answer is YES! These five stories (Big City Dragon, Big City Vampire, Uptown Dragon, Uptown Vampire and Big City Wolf) can be read on their own but they were truly meant to be read together, in that order.

The characters interact, which makes sense, as they’re all paranormals living in the same city (New York City). They’ll know their fellow paranormals and likely have issues with each other (especially the super territorial dragons). Ortho, the hero of Uptown Dragon, is the villain in Big City Dragon. Ember, the heroine of Big City Wolf, appears in many of the stories.

The setting is also an important part of the story. Frey, a dragon from the Bronx, has a different outlook on life than Ortho, the Manhattan dragon. They dress, act, speak differently. But they are both New Yorkers and have the similarities that come from living in close proximity (such as the challenges huge dragons have while flying in a busy city).

I’m super stoked that Changeling is releasing the Big City stories as a collection and I hope that you will enjoy them!

Big City (Collection)

In Big City Dragon, Frey, a powerful dragon shifter, is prepared to fight to the death for his mate, Perla, a human female. In Big City Vampire, the vampire Vasile's greatest battle may be to convince his human mate that he's real. Oro, an arrogant yet handsome dragon shifter, is shocked to find out that Hailey, his destined mate, might not want him in Uptown Dragon. In Uptown Vampire, Russ, a vampire who has spent his lifespan pretending to be human, meets Vanna, a woman who believes she's destined to bond with a vampire. The Big City series concludes with Big City Wolf, a story about a pack princess and a lone wolf, two lovers reconnecting after having been torn apart for centuries.

This collection contains the previously released Big City series novellas Big City Dragon, Big City Vampire, Uptown Dragon, Uptown Vampire, and Big City Wolf.

Cynthia Sax lives in a world where demons aren’t all bad, angels aren’t all good, and magic happens every single day. Although her heroes may not always say, “I love you”, they will do anything for the women they love. They live passionately. They fight fiercely. They love the same women forever.

Cynthia has loved the same wonderful man forever. Her supportive hubby offers himself up to the joys and pains of research, while they travel the world together, meeting fascinating people and finding inspiration in exotic places such as Istanbul, Bali, and Chicago.
