    While missing some of the sly humor of his previous books, We Sold Our Souls is a hard and fast rager of a horror novel. Mixing light gore, hard living characters, and scenes so vibrant you can hear the scream of the music and feel the bleeding fingertips of our guitarist, Hendrix g...

    I needed something undemanding to read over a couple of train journeys, and We Sold Our Souls fitted the bill. I haven't got on with Grady Hendrix's work previously (had to give up on Horrorstör because it was too gory; just couldn't get into My Best Friend's Exorcism) so I wasn't n...

    Once upon a time, Kris Pulaski had beaten entire rooms into submission. Once upon a time she'd walked into strange buildings in faraway states where the only people who knew her name stood next to her onstage. She'd stood, surrounded by crowds who hated her in Eugene, and Bangor, and M...

    First of all, I love horror books centered around music. Books like Robert McCammon's The Five and Todd Keisling's The Final Reconciliation are among my favorite books. I could not have been more excited when I heard Grady Hendrix had written a metal horror book. I'm such a fan of Grad...

    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, hah...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/11/12/... One thing I?ll say about Grady Hendrix: he really knows how to tell stories about the things he?s passionate about. His newest book We Sold Our Souls is described as a version of the famous Faust legend b...

    Kris Pulaski loved to play guitar and her heavy metal band Durt Wurk put in the work, hit the road and played every backwoods dive, seedy bar and smoky venue with their big break surely just around the corner. But that was 20 years ago. Now she works nights at a Best Western contend...

    We Sold Our Souls by Grady Hendrix is a 2018 Quirk Books publication. It?s the 90s and heavy metal rules the rock and roll music machine. Dürt Würk is right on the cusp of fame when suddenly their singer, Terry Hunt, pulls out, goes solo, changes his name and becomes a mega-sup...

    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, collect...

    This book was sent to the Night Worms review group by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I have been a fan of Hendrix ever since I discovered Horrorstör when it was released. When this book showed up at my house I just stared at it and pawed it for a while. It's so go...

    " 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 was...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. In the 1990s, heavy metal band Dürt Würk was nearly a breakout success, but the lead singer Terry went solo and became a superstar as Koffin, leaving the rest of the band in the dust. Now, former guitarist Kris is ...

    3.5 Stars Once again, Grady Hendrix is back with another fantastic, self-aware horror novel. Playing with the classics tropes of the genre, this novel was smart and well written. The narrative was very fast paced and action packed, bringing along the reader for an entertaining ad...

    We Sold Our Souls is such a fun read. It's an addicting story, and I think I tore through it within 24 hours. I want to say up front that I am not a metal fan, and this is the second metal horror book I've read this year. I ended up loving both. So if you are not a metal fan, either, a...

    I?d been meaning to read something by Grady Hendrix for ages, so I jumped at the chance to review We Sold Our Souls. I?d heard so many of my friends rave about his writing in general, but as a metalhead, I was especially sold on the idea of an entire horror story revolving around t...

    4.5* WE SOLD OUR SOULS, by Grady Hendrix, is a psychologically intense novel involving a one-time metal band and the power inherent in their music and lyrics. Years ago, five people formed a band called "Durt Wurk"--a band that was good, and had the potential to be great. Then came ...

    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, He...

    I have also included a few quotes from the eARC- I couldn?t help myself- so, please note, the quotes are subject to change in the published version We Sold Our Souls in a word? Epic! In three words? Epic, epic, epic! I mean- it?s about heavy metal- how can it not be epic, right?...

    I have no words that can accurately describe how freaking AMAZING and out of this world this book was but I?m going to give it a try. I knew it would be good because it?s basically my two favourite things smashed into one, horror and metal. But I had no idea just how good it would ...

    You can see my full video review HERE... Kris's days of underground metal fame are over. She is now in her late forties and dealing with creeps from the front desk of a hotel, barely getting by as she reminisces about the days before she and her band split. Before her fellow band-me...

    I love the heart that went into this. But the whole thing feels so...half-baked? First drafty? Love the first half, all the way until after an "escape" scene. After that, it lost me. The plot is too allegorical for its own good. The climax is way too feel-good and family-friendly c...
