Sin City Collectors is a authorship collaboration between some of my favourite authors Amanda Carlson and Kristen Painter. It is an interesting concept of intermingling standalone stories situated in the same world and with the occasional recurring character. All of the stories are written in a similar style, and feature great characters. Although each story can be read as a standalone, they are much better together. I am probably just saying this because I am generally not a fan of short stories, but I make an exception here and there.
I liked these stories because they are well written and I think they significantly affected my attitude towards short stories. Characters are well developed and likeable. All characters are strong, I like that a lot. They all come with dark secrets from the past and draw you into their stories. The authors managed, yet again, to resolve seemingly unsolvable situations and provide us with good endings. As you read on, the stories get darker and more complicated. Romance is great. My favourite story was Queen of Hearts for some reason, but the best part about this collection is that six stories together give an impression of having read a nice long novel.
