A new novel of supernatural horror (and pop culture) from the author of HORRORSTOR, MY BEST FRIEND'S EXORCISM, and PAPERBACKS FROM HELL. In the 90s, heavy metal band Drt Wrk was poised for success - but then lead singer Terry Hunt embarked on his own solo career and rocketed to stardom as Koffin, leaving his fellow bandmates behind. Now, 20 years later, Terry is still touring stadiums and preparing to release his second greatest hits compilation, but his old Drt Wrk band members are still toiling away in menial jobs and struggling to pay the bills. Tuck Merryweather is a smalltime landlord who plays bass in an oldies R&B cover band; guitarist Scottie Rocket works in IT; and lead guitar player Kris is struggling to care for her aging mother in the house she grew up in. As for Bill, no one likes to talk about what happened to Bill. Everything changes when Kris learns that Terry's rocket ride to success was no accident -- that he actually sold their souls in exchange for his own fame and fortune. It turns out that Drt Wrk's third album (a 1998 concept album called "Troglodyte") is actually a secret schematic that reveals the truth about the shadowy forces that enslave mankind. Determined to make things right, Kris reunites the band and tries to convince them that they must go on the road to confront the ex-friend who damned them all to Hell. But the only thing they're convinced of is that Kris is cracking up. WE SOLD OUR SOULS is a horror novel with a big heart, exploring questions of how much control any of us have over our own destinies. Featuring the same blend of horror, humor, and pop culture that made Grady's previous novels so popular, WE SOLD OUR SOULS is certain to win over even more fans!

If you can get past the awful song lyrics, this is a fun rock-n-roll horror story with a kickass female protagonist. As someone who used to work in radio, I also enjoyed the digs at the industry. The audiobook narrator is perfect too.

Kris used to be in a metal band with umlauts and mythos and crashing guitars that means something and never surrendered. But now there just seems to be a hole in the middle of everything. But what if there actually is? Getting the band back together has never been this horrifying—nor had so much at stake. #horror #screamathon

I read this Oct 3-4 and gave it 5 ⭐️. Like the other Hendrix novels that I read, it‘s a fast paced book. It has its moments of creepiness but it‘s not as creepy as his first two novels. Kris is a compelling character to follow. The heavy metal/Satanic tropes were well done. Definitely a page turner.

Gissy I'm so glad you liked it. Books are little surprises. Sometimes they are not what we expect but in my case, I don't mine, I want to discover by myself how good or not is. I also bought this book for me after I saw how gorgeous it is. Cover buy but now I know it is interesting too☺️ 2w

holy smokes what a fun read 🤘 I'm so thankful for Hendrix creating a female protagonist who is a) middle-aged, b) a former metal guitarist and c) not awkwardly forced into a romantic relationship with her ex-bandmates 😊 I did feel the ending was a bit rushed and I wish the other band members were fleshed out more but this was a good time all around.

As always, I had a blast reading Hendrix‘s book. They‘re just fun! This one was no exception, with a storyline centering on aging rock stars and a pact with dark forces that has potentially terrible consequences. I also loved that Hendrix describes one‘s soul as “the best of us” and ties it to our ability/desire for originality and creative ingenuity. A fun read!

Hendrix's third novel opens with Kris Pulaski, former guitarist of Dürt Würk, in a dead end job. We soon Iearn how this came to pass, & the fate of the band that led to all of the members splitting up, & one enjoying an unusual amount of success. With a concept straight out of his wonderful "Paperbacks from Hell," coupled with substantial social & cultural commentary; this is easily his best novel to date. Just remember: Metal never surrenders! ?

#DevilsDue is a fun, IMO, episode where an entire planet believes they‘ve sold their souls to the devil. 🙄😉😏 Of course the crew foils her plans.

Grady Hendrix is my only current horror auto-buy author. His latest book (tagged) is about a band selling their souls to the devil, but I recommend all his books, especially on audio!

Megabooks @WhatWouldJaneDo I have not yet that read book from him. I don‘t think I‘d get as much enjoyment because I didn‘t read those 70s-80s horror paperbacks. I was too busy reading Star Trek paperbacks and science nonfiction! (edited) 5mo

5⭐ Just look at that cover, y'all!!
Not to mention the 80's & 90's Rock.....ALL OF IT! This totally played on my nostalgia of being a young sort of metal head and what a "selling your soul for rock &roll" should be and more!!
With books that I really love, I begin to fear the ending. (yeah, I've been hurt before) but the ending is brilliant!!
Reminder: it is a horror, the are triggers. But it's not the worst I've read.

I love how Grady Hendrix captured the energy of rock n roll, the spirit of rock musicians and fans and melded it to a horrific .
Original and engaging, this was fun and a look at the morality of a lifestyle and an era in music.
The cover and black edged pages are awesome.

It was like an epic metal album. The ones that would tell a story. It was absolutely amazing and I couldn‘t have read it at a better time. Kris Pulaski is on an epic road trip to get back something she was missing. You don‘t have to love heavy metal to enjoy this book. I don‘t know how to put it lol in words. I would just suggest you give this a chance. This book is like a heavy metal modern day Lord of the Rings.

My Best Friend's Exorcism is one of my favourite horror novels of recent years, so my expectations for Grady Hendrix's follow up were pretty high. This story of heavy metal and (you guessed it) supernatural forces didn't quite reach those levels of awesomeness, but it was still a fun read with some genuinely creepy moments. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rob shook his head, and got up off his stool, and if he‘d left then, Kris would have been stuck. Rob could have just walked out of the room and left Kris to Black Iron Mountain and then nothing else that happened that night would have needed to happen.

But Rob was a man, and men never know when to shut up.

To be honest, I didn‘t remember that I wasn‘t buying any new books (not counting used books, I‘m not being punished) until I had already paid. I refuse to be held accountable, I enter some type of bookstore related blackout so it‘s not my fault. And I needed the new Grady Hendrix. I NEEDED IT AND I DON‘T HAVE A PROBLEM I CAN STOP WHENEVER I WANT AND I WAS ALMOST OUT OF BOOKS TO READ
