The Never List

The Never List - Koethi Zan This was such a mess of a novel - the promising premise of the "The Never List" is discarded quickly after the initial first few chapters and the author decided to take the 'girls in cellar' premise and then it swung around to dark rooms and questionable sexual practices.

It was never scary (more hyped horror) and in the end, the plot as described in first person by the narrator (unreliable of course) just doesn't ring true.

The hype is building on twitter and the book cover intriguing but it's all packaging.
