Reviewed by Penny White for Readers' Favorite

Seven-X by Mike Wech follows reporter Eddie Hansen on a journey into a mental facility in search of truth, but finds him on a soul-searching journey inside himself and leaves him questioning everything he knows to be true. Convinced that death row inmates are being sent to a secluded facility for experimentation, Eddie embarks on a quest to prove his suspicions and get the story of a lifetime, the one that will leave him set for life. However, finding solid proof of his claims is only the beginning. Are the mentally ill or serially deranged really sick, or are they simply plagued by demons and capable of being “cured”. Eddie quickly finds himself with many more questions than answers and the longer he stays at the Uphir facility the more entangled and confused he becomes.

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…?
