The Black Church is the second book that I have read by Mr. Tate. His stories are pretty straightforward and The Black Church is no exception, which is a traditional “cursed object” story with added historical elements that give it an extra point in my book. I don’t usually put in plot descriptions and I detest anything that even hints at a plot twist or event in the story. Lets just say that the curse in this case spans centuries and is fully explained and set out, which makes this a quick, satisfying read by a solid new horror writer.
Somewhere between 3.5 and 4 stars.
