“Roen creates an arresting pastiche of apocalyptic fiction and erotic romance that’s anchored by a strong heroine. It’s depiction of a futuristic Cote d’Azur on the brink of anarchy is particularly striking. A fast-paced thriller featuring exotic locales and an intriguing cast of characters.” — Kirkus Review

“Last Call for Caviar is a guilty pleasure for any reader. It introduces readers to an epic fight for love and humanity. The imagery and decadence used to describe the setting made me feel as though I was there. You can almost smell the money towards the beginning of the book and the despair at the end as their world begins to crumble further. The author could have gone just with the end of days story and written a fine book. However, the sensuality and adventure of the book is what sets it apart from other novels. If you want to be exposed to a world of wealth, tragedy and love, Last Call for Caviar is a great read.” — Pacific Book Review (4 Stars)

“Last Call for Caviar unravels in Cap d’Ail, France in the year 2018 as readers are presented with Maya Jade’s journals a hundred years after almost half of mankind perished as foretold in the Hopi Prophecy. Last Call for Caviar has a cast of colorful characters each of them with interesting stories to tell as they try to avoid the inescapable doom. Witty, fashionable and imaginative, this is a dystopian novel that is simply hard to put down.” — Maria Beltran for Readers’ Favorites (5 Stars)

“Last Call for Caviar by Melissa Roen is a dystopian novel of great strength and beauty. When a novel like this is done well it is believable enough to frighten you and this novel was done very well indeed. I enjoyed the lyrical writing, exotic settings and most of all the strong, independent, but sometimes vulnerable main character. A great read.” — Ray Simmons for Readers’ Favorites (4 Stars)

“Roen did a fantastic job of creating a scary world that is all too plausible in its reality. Maya is kick-butt kind of heroine that a lot of readers will get behind. She’s a different girl from the one she was when she started this journey, and she isn’t about to give up just because the world has gone crazy around her. I wanted her to get the happiness she deserved and for things to work out for her. That level of empathy for a character is remarkable and makes me applaud Roen for a fine job of making her characters come to life.” — JJ Philips for Readers’ Favorites (5 Stars)

“Maya Rising is a sizzling steamy story with action, adventure and intrigue. Maya Rising is a survival tale, but hope is also encountered in the story’s pages. I love the way this story was told. It is dark and scary at times, funny and witty when comic relief is needed, and sweet and sappy just when I’ve had too much darkness.” — Anna Smith for Readers’ Favorites (5 Stars)
