We Sold Our Souls Reviews
As a fan of Grady, heavy metal and horror I was really looking forward to this book and I’m glad to say that is was absolutely fantastic.
We Sold Our Souls takes you on a thrilling adventure that follows Kris Pulaski, the former guitarist of Dürt Würk - a band that was never huge but loved by those fortunate enough to hear them. The reasons for the dissolution of her band are not what she believes them to be and the evils she wrote about are far more real than she realises. Kris is a great protag ...more
Everybody has been raving about this book. I haven’t read one negative thing and that’s rare in blogland. We like to complain and pick things apart. Or at least I know I do. I probably shouldn’t speak for everyone else. But I think that’s what makes us (or me) so fantastic, haha. Now that I’ve finally read it, (sorry Netgalley, I am late again but you really should know this about me by now) I totally understand why this book is being treated like horror gold. Author Grady Hendrix knows the horr ...more

We Sold Our Souls is one HELL of a ride. Grady Hendrix, King of horror at Quirk Books, has written a heavy metal masterpiece with a female lead guitarist, Kris Pulaski, as its star.
Less classic horror this time (his previous books are Horrorstör and ‘My Best Friend's Exorcism, Hendrix has laden ‘Souls’ with conspiracy theory and real life horrors.
Kris Pulaski was in a heavy metal band called Dürt Würk two decades ago and they were on the brink of success when the lead singer Terry Hunt ripped t ...more
Every song was the same song. These were songs for people who were scared to open their mailboxes, whose phone call never brought good news. These were songs for people standing at the crossroads waiting for the bus. People who bounced between debt collectors and dollar stores, collection agencies and housing offices, family court and emergency rooms waiting for a check that never came, waiting for a court date, waiting for a call back, waiting for a break, crushed beneath the wheel.

" Hard rock, heavy metal, stoner rock, doom metal-it all dragged itself up out of the swamp called the blues. "
As a major fan of the blues, how could I not be aware of Robert Johnson's story? Legend says he sold his soul at the crossroads to play the guitar like that. Maybe he wasn't the only one doing the selling?
WE SOLD OUR SOULS is the story of a band in turmoil, maybe not a great band, but one that affected people. One that got people through the hard times...one that helped them celebrate ...more

We Sold Our Souls is a rocking good time filled with well-developed characters and shocking twists, all told in Grady Hendrix’s assured, witty voice. Hendrix is quickly becoming a superstar in the dark fiction field, and rightfully so.
What is most impressive about this book, to me, is the cha ...more
