My Take: This was a pretty fast, thrilling read. It wasn't quite my cup of tea which doesn't happen very often. Just because it wasn't what I usually read doesn't mean it wasn't a good book, but it wasn't as good as I thought it could have been. It had a pretty great plot, but I felt like most of the book was rushed. 180 pages isn't really a book, it's pretty small. I liked how fast I could get through it though, and in the end was pretty okay with it.
Sometimes the book took a very short amount of time to explain something that it should have put in the most detail. When the bad guy is finally defeated, it's about a paragraph long and has very few detail. It also wasn't much of a struggle and seemed pretty easy for the whole book to be leading to that point. I kind of wish there had been an epic battle between the two that lasted more than like two minutes.
Other than that the characters were pretty likable and the wording was okay. I still think this book had more potential so I'm giving it a 3 which is like a neutral. Didn't love it but didn't hate it :)
The Cover: To me the cover symbolizes evil. The look on the guys face is pretty demonic and I think it fits the book well.
Would I Recommend? This is another book for mostly adults. It's something that mystery/thriller fans would like so if you like reading about good guys hunting baddies and killing them, then you'll like this book.
However Robert has another supernatural ability to do this. He is able to utilize the powers of those who are truly evil to battle against them. Only these powers that evil men have are outside those most people would never consider. A friend he grew up with in the small town of Irmo, South Carolina, by the name of Michael who believed that the local pastor Reverend John Ford was out to get him. Ford was a man who was growing financial successful with acquiring more churches as well as a local car dealership. However Michael believed that Reverend Ford was pressuring people to the point of blackmail in order to continue to become a rich man. So when Michael was let go from his position at the car dealership Ford owned, he began to plot for a way to get back at the man he felt was responsible.
Only Michael himself has a unique ability, and that is to be able to move metal with his mind and with that power, he can murder at will and no one would be able prove he had done it, and that is where Robert comes in to play. He has to stop Michael regardless of the costs.
I received Pastor Evil by Robert McCabe compliments of Pump Up Your Book Tours for my honest review and actually enjoyed this short novel. At 180 pages, the story line is unique and engages the reader. I would have loved to seen the ending a little more detailed instead of so short and quick after all the build up the reader gets to before it ends. I am looking forward to his next book Physician Evil which the reader is given a sneak peek at in the end of the book. This book is for fans of supernatural suspense thrillers and thus would rate this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
