From the New York Times best-selling author of The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires comes a hard-rocking, spine-tingling horror novel about a washed-up guitarist of a ’90s heavy metal band who embarks on an epic road-trip across America and deep into the web of a sinister conspiracy.
Every morning, Kris Pulaski wakes up in hell. In the 1990s she was lead guitarist of Dürt Würk, a heavy-metal band on the brink of breakout success until lead singer Terry Hunt embarked on a solo career and rocketed to stardom, leaving his bandmates to rot in obscurity.
Now Kris works as night manager of a Best Western; she’s tired, broke, and unhappy. Then one day everything changes—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 Dürt Würk and confront the man who ruined her life. Her journey will take her from the Pennsylvania rust belt to a celebrity rehab center to a satanic music festival. A furious power ballad about never giving up, 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.
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 D rt W rk 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 D rt W rk 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 (Horrorst r) 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.
