Summary

In this hard-rocking, spine-tingling supernatural thriller, the washed-up guitarist of a '90s heavy metal band embarks on an epic road trip across America and deep into the web of a sinister conspiracy.

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 Durt Wurk 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.

Superb

I'm a big fan of Grady Hendrix's work, and this is hands down his best work to date. Hugely entertaining, brilliantly written and scary in all the right places. a love letter to both metal and horror but also with a lot of heart. Carol Monday does a sterling job of narrating this tale that will stick with you long after you've read it, and will also make you think twice before you sign anything again. 😉

I'll read anything by Grady Hendrix

What a fantastic book!! Carol Monda's performance was perfect for Chris--that slight gravel to her voice. Grady Hendrix has the ability to build a story line with perfect pacing, throwing in surprises that keep your attention riveted. There's always a tilt to the storyline that leads you into a bizarre world. I really enjoy all of his books. I listened to this one twice in a row.

Grady Hendrix & Carol Monda=Audible Perfection

I loved this book. Right from the beginning the story grabbed me. I enjoy a story that teaches me a few tidbits about a world I don't know about firsthand. This was a great tale of Metal Bands and Evil and all the suspense I could handle. Very well written and the narrator could not have been more perfect. This is my first book by Grady Hendrix, I admit that the cover lured me in. I'm not ready to dismiss some supernatural work was used (or perhaps just a talented book cover artist)

Fun and exciting.

I loved this book. It moved fast and had a fun story. If you're looking for something a little supernatural but not too scary this will do it. The narrator did a great job, although her men's voices were all about the same. #ontheroad #suspenseful #Tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Face meltingly good 🤘🏻🤘🏻

In the past week I have devoured two of Grady Hendrix’s books via audible, We Sold Our Souls and My Best Friend’s Exorcism. Both books have been captivating, I think in large part do to the expert voice casting for the narrator of each book. Grady plays with his words and imagery like an experienced guitar player plays and glides across a fret board, effortlessly and powerfully moving the story forward like the bullet that he equates he characters to. All that combined with the gritty raspy voice and versatile performance of Carol Monda this is a rock and roll roller coaster of a book that had me possessed from beginning to end!!

Pleasant surprise

This was a sold book, the horror Genre can get very tiresome at times with repetitive themes. This book is an original one-of-a-kind story in the horror genre that doesn’t forget to have a great ending and page turning pace.

Kind of boring

Not Henrix's best work, and the Narrator really ruined the immersion for me. Not much happens.
