Last Call for Caviar, Melissa Roen

4.5 stars



Destruction, death and blood cults—oh my! Maya Jade has been stranded in the Riviera during what can only be accurately described as Armageddon. Author Melissa Roen creates a rather convincing alternate reality in Last Call for Caviar, one in which the world as we know it is quickly and definitively coming to an end. Earthquakes, tsunamis, fires, extreme weather of all kinds are testing the limits of mankind and the results are catastrophic. War rages everywhere as bands fight against bands, governments fight against their citizens, and individuals fight for their lives.

In the midst of all this devastation, there are places where champagne still flows lavishly and caviar is consumed in abundance. Tucked away on the beautiful coast of the Côte d’Azur, the wealthy hide from the “treacherous minefields of the disintegrating world.” It is in this glittery, gilded backdrop that Maya finds herself—cut off from the security of family, the safety of civilization, and the love she found in France.

I hate caviar, but I loved Last Call.
