Review by Penny White "Readers' Favorite"
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; also constantly wondering if Eddie had stumbled upon a madhouse or if the facility was some sort of charade or truly the home of unspeakable experiments. Spend some time at Uphir and ask yourself - Do I really know what I am capable of?


As an avid psychological horror fan, Seven-X is a brain-twisting thriller that keeps you wanting more. The characters are compelling, the story is unique and thought provoking and the writing is vivid and imaginative. Highly recommended! -- JamesP1  barnesandnoble.com

Review by Paula Limbaugh for Horror Novel Reviews.com  - 5 STARS
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!


Loved it! Couldn't put it down! It was very intense, creepy to the core, sent chills down my spine anticipating what happens next! The wording was sensational! Made me feel as if I was right there with Eddie in that mental hospital experiencing the things he did! Highly recommended.  I really hope this gets made into a movie.
 Goodreads/Melissa Mudd


Seven-X is the classic definition of horror. (Dictionary) An overwhelming and painful feeling caused by something frightfully shocking, terrifying, or revolting; a shuddering fear. YES. This book delivered all of these feelings with such precision and unique story telling; yet there was also beauty, redemption and humanity.  Andrew/Goodreads

INTENSE!!! This is the best way to describe Seven-X. I got sucked into the story immediately and stayed up all night reading. I got chills, looked around the room and was acutely aware of every sound, sight and feeling inside me as I read. The writing takes you in and locks you into the asylum and you live and breathe through Eddie (the main character) as he investigates a mystery surrounding a missing death row prisoner who is shipped to an asylum for an exorcism. The demons seem so real and the concept behind this story is well thought out and executed that it blurs the lines of reality and fiction. You have to see for yourself and read this book. --barnesandnoble - BrendaJ

Wow. This book has got me looking over my shoulder. It scared the hell out of me. It was one of those books you're afraid to read but don't want to put down. The author throws you right into the madness and keeps you hooked as you adventure deeper into these experimental proceeders the main character is a victim of. This is a must read for any fan of psychological, spin your head around horror. --barnesandnoble- VictorM

This genre is not my usual read, but I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It is written from such an interesting and varied perspective with such detail and care. I found my self not wanting to put it down and needing to find out what happened next. I would go so far as to look things up on the internet to gain more insight into what was going on and if it were truly possible. The author has taken great care with the details of this book and although it does become a little slow at a point or two, it was incredibly gripping and very entertaining. I even admit that I was looking over my shoulder now and again, and perhaps hearing things for a short time after reading it. It is a different kind of story that is both compelling and interesting. I look forward to seeing the upcoming volumes and recommend this book to anybody who likes to read books that play with your mind and creep you out. It's an easy read and a fun way to screw with your brain. --amazon- JeffZ

  • About SEVEN-X
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.

In this book the reader follows Eddie trying to get the story of his life as a reporter. Doing so he stumbles upon a unmarked mental institute that keep inmates that were supposed to be executed. The reader sees Eddie meeting his own disturbed past while fighting the demons away that he doesn't believe in. I seriously wanted to slap Eddie a few times for being so hard headed. The only bad thing about it is, I have to wait for another year to read the next book.

You WILL be spooked out and start hearing whispers if you read this alone at night. Be forewarned!!

The author did a fantastic job of making the reader feel the horror of delving into the unknown supernatural world of demons and other things that go bump in the night. The premise that when you get "exorcised", that seven more demons join the original in hijacking your soul is unique and really scary. Just when you think you're safe!!

Half the time I really bought the medical conspiracy theory, too! This proves how well-written the storyline gets, you're never really sure of the truth.

There could have been lots more character development of the demons, though. We got quick glimpses as Eddie got "touched" by their presence, but didn't really understand the depth of their evil. Also, I never understood the leopard references/obsessions. Is there going to be a sequel that explains what happens to Eddie?

I cannot believe this is his first novel. It was very well written; I saw the world through Eddie's eyes. I was a little nervous going in, knowing that demons were a part of it, and not the YA versions that are bad (moronic, disgusting, and flesh eating) but not evil. These demons are evil in the biblical sense; they are tormenters that attempt to inhabit the soul. Eddie attempts to navigate a "treatment center" that doesn't technically exist. He leaves his fate to the clinical psychologist, Dr. Haworth, by signing the waiver to enter the facility. Here he haunted by his past, not only through memories, but the patients in the facility. Demons preying on him, waiting for an opening into his soul.

It was a good book, suspenseful; I didn't want to put it down. Certainly looking forward to the next installment. What happens to Eddie after the final journal entry? I need an encounter with Ward E (I think). What is this creature that roams the night? Is what I think going on actually what is going on?

This was a really good book. I have never read a book quite like this. It was scary, dramatic and suspense filled. I could totally see this book turning into the next exorcist movie!! Eddie is a stubborn man looking into missing death row inmates and what he stumbles upon will creep you out and keep you on the edge of your seat. Definite must read. There were times when the description was sooooo good I believed I was there!!!

This book was very psychological and dealt with good and evil. I believe in the power of good and evil so this book disturbed me a bit, though it was VERY good. I also love books set in psychiatric settings, like mental wards, asylums, or "health centers", as the doctors at Uphir called the facility.

I can't wait for the next one !!! This is the first in a trilogy.

I enjoyed reading this book so much that it has jumped to the top of my Most Favorite Horror/Psychological Suspense Books. This is a well written novel that really gets in your head and you will continue to think about long after you read the last page. I can't wait for the second book in the trilogy. I highly recommend reading this novel........you won't be disappointed!
