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!
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.
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
