This was my favorite book of this trilogy it was wrapped up well and by the end everything made sense. I loved the characters especially John and I like the whole group I liked what Charlie ended up being that just made sense once you put it all together. I loved the story it was an amazing conclusion to one of my favorite stories the writing was so good there were plenty of good scares and it was really thrilling loved it so much. So overall I loved this book so much that I really want more.

The Fourth Closet by Scott Cawthon tied up some of the FNAF literature universe, but opened up a whole 'nother can of worms.

I was a little too hooked to this book, but mainly because I am totally obsessed with the FNAF lore. The video games, the potential movie, the books! All of them are my guilty pleasure, which I will easily admit. But this book? It tops the other two. I found the first book to be intriguing, the second book to lag just a bit, and this book went flying off the handle to utter

I was impressed by the first book in this series, the Silver Eyes, for how it presented a more streamlined take on the FNAF universe while also delivering it's own interesting and original set of characters and situations. The second book, The Twisted Ones, built very well on the first book's foundation and took the story even further into unique territory, while still having FNAF flair. Now we've reached the end of the trilogy a few years in the making, and I'm glad to say the wait was worth ...more

I'm so confused. I loved it though. I have my own theories,as everyone else does, but I plan to keep them to myself for a while and try to organize my thoughts.

An hour later i wrote a long theorie so I'm just going to share it.

Are the kids all right? he asked not sure he wanted to hear the answer.
Theyre safe. All of them, Jessica said quickly.
All of them? Carlton said in joyful disbelief.
Yes. You saved him, the last one. Jessica smiled.

This was thrilling and confusing and just, in general,

If you are a fan of the games and book series then you are going to enjoy this conclusion. It may answer some burning questions or at least give the readers more to theorize about while they try to connect the books to the Five Nights at Freddy's game series. The only reason why I am giving it a three is because the writing is not great and for dropped plot lines like everyone car pooling to one destination only for everyone to split up and have their own cars magically there for them to take. ...more

disclaimer: i feel the need to explain that my five star ratings are just a flat "recommendation" and not a glowing review like you would normally expect.

This book kinda freaked me out a bit. I wasn't expecting to be as invested as I was. I read the other two in the series and liked them enough, and I've been very very loosely trying to keep track with what the games are all about. I'm not exactly a 'fnaf' expert and I wasn't expecting to be particularly invested in this book, especially

um, Im like... really confused with the ending. Its the last book and I feel that there were so many things unanswered.
so I guess Ill binge game theories now 🤷♀

Scott, I don't know if you know what you're doing because I sure don't. While this wasn't as bad as The Twisted Ones, and does answer a few questions, you have to dig through the story to find the answers. Are we looking at a book number four? You kind of ended this one almost exactly the same way as number 2.

That was...a lot of information. This series as a whole was really good in concept and made a lot of sense for the lore of the video games...that is if you could understand whats happening half the time! I really do enjoy these books, theyre a little creepy and fun and you truly do find yourself wanting to know what happened but this last installment really kind of threw me for a loop. When I finished The Twisted Ones I could barely even wait for this book and I must admit, it was a bit of a let ...more

This was way better, no lie. I honestly don't want to give to much away but my hatred for the main girl Charlie was justified since she wasn't even a real person, she was a freaking robot, no wonder i hated her so much.

I loved the different perspectives instead of focusing on Charlie, even if it is all about her. It honestly made me feel more empathy for the characters and the trials they have to go through.

This was a good book to end a decent series based somewhat on the

This was such a great series! Book 3 really clears a few things up that book 2 didnt, it just left you hanging. I do wish these were canon but either way they were great! Id love to see a Five Nights At Freddys movie. ...more

This book was amazing! It closed the series of really well. I would recommend this book, only if you have read the first two book. It would not make any sense i you read this book first. If you liked the other five nights at freddy's books you will definitely love this one. If you like the hidden lore of the game i recommend the series it answers a lot of unsolved things from the games, all thou not everything is cannon.

I honestly may be traumatized right now and I don't know if I'll ever recover from this.

Being a fan of the game series, I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this book series. I've read a few video game book adaptations, as well as books that simply take place in a gaming world, and they're often hit or miss. I've read a few where they started out promising and then wavered out and turned to shit (Resident Evil, I'm looking at you). This series stayed consistent throughout the

Personal Response (3-5 sentences)
I like this book because it uses the same backstory and some of the original characters from the game franchise while also adding new characters to give it a more original yet new feel to it. Also since it was made by the same guy that made the games and with the help of Kira Breed Wrisley, it's a lot more interesting to me. The fact that this book is as well made off of the topic of my favorite video game series has made these books extremely hard to stop
John can't seem to get over what happened to Charlie that night. Meanwhile, a brand new restaurant Is opening and kidnappings start up all over again. John and the others team up to find out where the missing kids are. Doubles, people who aren't who they are supposed to be. Come to the horrifying conclusion of what Happened to Charlie, and finally solve all of the mysteries that have a horrifying conclusion to come.

I'm screaming because of this book I do not want the series to end, and I heard

Interesting book. I don't think it was the best one in the so-far trilogy, but it honestly started to confuse me at the end. I would have liked if Scott ended the book with Jessica and Marla, or at least told their adventure to the police station. I also would like to know if John was okay. But with the ending Scott added, with Elizabeth, I was interested to know more about why she told Charlie that neither of them were real. The ending, with the tombstone, did help me conclude that in fact ...more

I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. It answered a lot of questions, but it left us with just as many as before. And some of the ways that loose ends were tied up just didn't feel right. (view spoiler)

I really liked a lot of the build-up, and for a while, I had a really hard time putting the book down. But, I think

Great book and I love horror so I might be a little biased about it but, I love the book and you really need to start with the first book to understand how the trilogy works.

I've never been a fan of Five Nights at Freddy's. I enjoy the lore, but the gameplay just isn't for me. That said, this book is great, and when I get the chance, I will definitely reread it.
Charlie died in a spring-lock failure as a collapsing building fell on top of her, and everyone thought she died. Then, out of nowhere, she appeared unscathed. Her best friend John knew that something was up and with the arrival of a new animatronic-themed restaurant in town, he and the others investigate

So, John is sad after the last book, a new pizza place opens which is similar to fazbears, more missing children and where the heck is Charlie?

The theme of this book is teamwork also little bits of determination vibes here and there. Some characters are forced to team up. Where are the children? Where is Charlie? What happened to Springy boi AKA Springtrap? all of these were answered due to TEAMWORK and DETERMINATION (and some mistakes) Ahem, uhh what uhh i didn't say anything!
Anywho this book
