We Sold Our Souls
We Sold Our Souls | Grady Hendrix
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 Dürt Würk 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 Dürt Würk 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 Dürt Würk'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!

#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!

WhatWouldJaneDo Love Grady Hendrix! His Paperbacks from Hell newsletter is fantastic also 4d
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) 4d

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.

Addison_Reads I enjoyed this one too. Have you read Horrorstor by him? I recently finished it and loved it. 2w

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.

This was a mildly entertaining horror comedy. It was a unique tale but didn‘t fully hold my attention and was not very scary or funny but an ok listen. Solid narration on the #audiobook #horror

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

Unpopular opinion here: I‘ve loved Grady‘s previous books but this one just didn‘t do it for me. Maybe it‘s because I‘m not a fan of metal and I missed all the references? Maybe it‘s because I felt the mythology of Black Iron Mountain wasn‘t fully realized? Maybe it‘s because the ending felt abrupt and unfinished? Or maybe it‘s just me? Still a fan though and look forward to his next book.

UrsulaMonarch Completely agree with everything here! 5mo

Another amazing pop culture horror novel from Grady Hendrix featuring a badass female with heart!
The lead singer of a 90's metal band sold the souls of his four band mates for fame & fortune. Now it's time for the guitarist to take a road trip through metaphorical hell to reclaim her soul at a music festival outside Vegas. 🤘

Metal guitarist Kris never quite made the big time, but her lead singer Terry did. Strange things are afoot when she tries to talk to her former band members. This is my third Hendrix and he is so good at mixing horror and dark humor. Some definite gore, but a great read with an ending I really dig.

What a wild ride! Grady Hendrix has outdone himself again.

Metal music holds the key to saving the world. One girl and her guitar must sacrifice everything to free humanity.

I loved every page. If you're a Hendrix fan, you will not be disappointed.

Pure metal madness. This was just so cool and I got a lot of the references, which yay lol
There's a part where Kris is escaping a place that has got to be the most claustrophobic dread I've ever read. Just thinking about it still gives me the heebie jeebies.
This part pictured gave me a very satisfied laugh and guys, black sprayed edges! 😍 the hardback under the cover is really cool too.

Heart: SHUT IT, YOU!!! THIS BOOK RULES!!! One rocker‘s quest to win back her soul from Black Iron Mountain!!! An album called TROGLODYTE that can deliver the future from tyranny!!! Horror that will melt your face off and head butt you in the feels!!! Also an indictment of toxic masculinity. Also Dolly Parton is Santa Claus. READ THIS BOOK!!!

Does JD kind of randomly appear in the middle of the story after literally a sentence of set-up at the beginning with way more information than makes any kind of sense?

Yes, he does.

Do I like JD anyway?
