Mike Wech has produced a stunning work with Seven-X. I found myself unable to put it down. Not only was the story intriguing and thrilling, but it left me completely entertained and enthralled. I found myself sympathizing with the characters and appalled at their behavior all at the same time; and also constantly wondering if Eddie had stumbled upon a madhouse or if the entire facility was some sort of charade or truly the home of unspeakable experiments that he believed he was looking for in the first place. Seven-X is filled with characters that you will find not only interesting but terrifying and deliciously confusing at the same time. Spend some time with Eddie at Uphir and ask yourself - Do I really know what I am capable of?

This is a story of good vs. evil. Possession and redemption. Demons' fighting to gain entrance to one's very soul. The Bible states when one demon is exorcised he will bring back 7 more to try again (Matthew 12: 43-45) hence the title. Ironically, before starting this book a friend had posted the question, what are your favorite lesser known found footage movies? That is exactly how this book reads! You can visualize what's happening as you go along journal entry by journal entry. I can't wait to see this on the big screen.

So gripping I couldn't put it down. Not often a book actually freaks me out!

A commanding first novel. It can't be easy as a functional person to accurately depict a man's decent into madness. Worth the read
From the Author
The battle between GOOD and EVIL raging inside our mind, body and soul was a difficult subject to write about. I was forced to confront the best and worst of myself through these characters. Writing SEVEN-X was TERRIFYING for me. Exploring a spiritual realm that we continue to debate exists is a mission of faith, hope and love. The three things which remain after death. In exploring MY OWN DARKNESS, I discovered so much depth to the human soul and know there is still so much left to discover. Personally documenting a character's DESCENT INTO MADNESS and experiencing it through them is an INTENSE EXPERIENCE that I dove into as deep as I could, remaining authentic to the VISIONS I experienced venturing into Uphir with Eddie.
Human beings are a unique species, able to express love, kindness, compassion and mercy while still holding FORCES OF EVIL,
destruction, chaos, despair and hate WITHIN US!
At any given moment we can swing in either direction, and ACT ON THESE IMPULSES
without ever really considering the root of where these things live, or HOW FAR WILL THEY TAKE US.
The best way to EXPERIENCE SEVEN-X is to read it the way it was written, ALONE AT NIGHT, unobstructed from the outside world. You will begin to sense and perhaps see this OTHER DIMENSION. You will experience SOMETHING BEYOND YOURSELF through Eddie's journey and these words will take hold of you. This is not your ordinary book.
WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS INTENSE SCENES AND ADULT LANGUAGE.
