Five Nights At Freddy's: The Twisted Ones
Five Nights At Freddy’s: The Twisted Ones has released on Kindle and in stores. The book continues the established plot of 2015’s Five Nights At Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes. Is William Afton truly done with Charlie? Scholastic Inc.

Five Nights At Freddy’s: The Twisted Ones is available now on Kindle for $5.99 and and in paperback for $6.81. It’s the second franchise novel by game developer, Scott Cawthon, and it’s the direct sequel to 2015’s Five Nights At Freddy’s The Silver Eyes.

For those interested in a spoiler-free plot summary, here’s the book’s introductory blurb from its Amazon page .

“It's been a year since the horrific events at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, and Charlie is just trying to move on. Even with the excitement of a new school and a fresh start, she's still haunted by nightmares of a masked murderer and four gruesome animatronic puppets. Charlie thinks her ordeal is over, but when a series of bodies are discovered near her school, bearing wounds that are disturbingly familiar, she finds herself drawn back into the world of her father's frightening creations. Something twisted is hunting Charlie, and this time if it finds her, it's not letting her go.”

Despite being known and in the works for quite some time, The Twisted Ones has only been teased by Cawthon directly over the past few weeks. Earlier this month, he posted concept images of Twisted Freddy, Twisted Foxy and a brand new wolf-like animatronic presumably featured in the novel. Taking a look at the designs, they appear to be a slightly more grounded take on the Nightmare Animatronics from the Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 game.

In terms of what fans can expect from this book, The Twisted Ones essentially answers the many lingering plot questions of its predecessor, while also introducing a few new ones. Has the murderous William Afton truly concluded his business with Charlie? Can Charlie’s friends move on from their past experience? Why were these machines created in the first place? That much will be addressed in this 300-page story.

What The Twisted Ones doesn’t contain, however, are de facto solutions for the Five Nights At Freddy’s game lore. Shortly after The Silver Eyes release, Cawthon responded to fan backlash over plot inconsistencies by revealing that the game and books exist on alternate timelines. In that sense, while the two mediums are very much related, they’re not meant to be taken as complete analogues for one another. There may be hints in these pages, but nothing too concrete.

If the Five Nights At Freddy’s novels aren’t of any interest to you, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that Scott is also seemingly working on a brand new game too. Continuing from the conclusion of last year’s Five Nights At Freddy’s: Sister Location, Baby has been ejected from the body of Ennard and is looking for revenge against her Funtime friends. Who might she align with to accomplish her mission? We can’t wait to find out.
