We Sold Our Souls

In this novel, we follow Kris on her journey to discover what truly happened the night when her band signed their contracts that ended every members’ but one’s musical career. This journey leads her down a sinister path that is paved by more than greed and selfishness. Was her soul sold for success? How and when? Grady Hendrix writes a fast-paced, paranormal story that is so fun and twisted you can’t put down the book. I was in glee every minute of it. Well despite those 15 or so minutes Hendrix scared me so badly with his descriptions of Kris confined in the deepest and tightest tunnels imaginable. I have to say I was in those tunnels with her the entire time. I felt claustrophobic along with her. I was delirious from despair just like Kris. I bow down to the author’s talent to create such a visceral reaction in me, the reader. The sole reason I deducted points stems from some of the choices Hendrix made to propel the story forward. A few of those plot points just weren’t believable despite that fact that you had to suspend belief to begin with in order to go on this ride. I wish he would’ve fleshed out some of these scenarios as I easily can say this book would’ve been a 5 star read otherwise. All in all, though, I really enjoyed We Sold Our Souls and I will certainly grab another Hendrix novel in the future.
I would like to thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for my advanced copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
