Summary
Grady Hendrix, horror writer and author of Paperbacks from Hell and My Best Friend's Exorcism , is back with his most electrifying novel yet. In the 1990s, heavy metal band D rt W rk was poised for breakout success-but then lead singer Terry Hunt embarked on a solo career and rocketed to stardom as Koffin, leaving his fellow bandmates to rot in obscurity.

Two decades later, former guitarist Kris Pulaski works as the night manager of a Best Western-she's tired, broke, and unhappy. Everything changes when a shocking act of violence turns her life upside down, and she begins to suspect that Terry sabotaged more than just the band.

Kris hits the road, hoping to reunite with the rest of her bandmates and confront the man who ruined her life. It's a journey that will take her from the Pennsylvania rust belt to a celebrity rehab center to a music festival from hell. A furious power ballad about never giving up, even in the face of overwhelming odds, We Sold Our Souls is an epic journey into the heart of a conspiracy-crazed, pill-popping, paranoid country that seems to have lost its very soul...where only a lone girl with a guitar can save us all.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Hendrix (My Best Friend's Exorcism, 2016) brings his quirky sense of humor to an energetic Faustian tale. Twenty years ago, Kris was the lead guitarist of Dürt Würk, a heavy-metal band on the rise. But after a night no one can fully remember, the band split, leaving music behind except for Terry, who went on to megastardom. Now Kris is barely holding it together as a motel night manager, until a horrific murder makes her question the nefarious power behind Terry's success, and what it cost Kris' soul. Determined to take her life back, Kris hits the road and reconnects with her old bandmates, putting her on a collision course with Terry for a Las Vegas music festival of demonic proportions. No matter how high the mountain of horror she faces, as long as Kris has her guitar, she might be just enough to save us all. This is a fast-paced ride, firmly rooted in the pulp horror tradition, but with thought-provoking social criticism and a sense of fear that rises from the terrifying implication that we are all willing to sell our souls on the cheap. Hendrix's darkest novel yet will leave readers begging for an encore.--Spratford, Becky Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Hendrix's pulpy love letter to heavy metal music is a gloriously over-the-top scare fest that has hidden depths. Terry Hunt-aka the Blind King, the former frontman of the wildly successful Dürt Würk-ruined guitarist Kris Pulaski's life 20 years ago. Now Terry's on an apocalyptic farewell tour with his new band, Koffin. Kris, 47 and looking back at the shambles of her life, seeks the truth about the night Terry drew up contracts, striking a bargain with the devil that sold out Dürt Würk and doomed Kris to misery and obscurity while gaining fame and fortune for himself. She has to ward off murderous UPS men, hellish creatures, and much more on her way to the culmination of Koffin's tour: Hellstock '19 in the Nevada desert, where Terry will bring thousands of souls together for the devil to harvest. Undaunted, Kris unleashes her inner badass and her wicked guitar riffs to stop Terry and his evil cabal. Hendrix (Horrorstör) scatters plenty of barbed popular and consumer culture references throughout this harrowing tale of redemption in the face of powerful evil. Readers will root for Kris all the way to the explosive, poignant finale. Agent: Joshua Bilmes, JABerwocky Literary. (Sept.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
