Based on the best-selling horror video game series, Five Nights at Freddy's.
It's been exactly 10 years since the murders at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, and Charlotte (Charlie for short) has spent those 10 years trying to forget. Her father was the owner of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza and the creator of its four adult-sized animatronic animals, and now Charlie is returning to her hometown to reunite with her childhood friends on the anniversary of the tragedy that ripped their town apart.
Curiosity leads Charlie and her friends back to the old pizza place, and they find it hidden and sealed, but still standing. They discover a way inside, but things are not as they once were: the four mascots that delighted and entertained them as children have changed. The animatronic animals have a dark secret, and a murderous agenda.

I honestly loved this book. Suzanne Freeman does an amazing job voicing the characters. aswell as telling the story. Scott and Kira did a very good job with the story, but it did leave me with wanting more. My favorite character is CHarly, Mainly because the story resolved around her. She is the main character.. My least favorite was Lamar.. I felt he was undeveloped really. If there is a second book, I will be grabbing it. The Story, I will admit, wasn't scary at all. But being a fan of the games, I knew what was happening around every corner. Overall. It's a good book, and a great listen. Suzanne brought character to these characters.
This book had a great vibe and was enjoyable! My Son had a great time listening to it. My son is a fan of the game and really enjoyed the lore.
The novelization of the FNAF game series proves to produce a solid story in novel form. The games themselves are largely very simple, in gameplay, but it's the subtle details and atmosphere that draw so many in for speculation and anticipation. The novel manages to capitalize on these traits quite well, spinning an excellent tale woven from elements familiar, but much more involved, than those gleamed from the games.
As such, I absolutely recommend it to those who are hungry for more story from this setting, though it may confound speculation on the game story, as I hear it's considered a parallel or alternative interpretation. Just the same, what is revealed is very compelling and absolutely stands on it's own. In fact, the way it's written, I could easily see this adapting extremely well to film - if they are basing the movie on it - in the hands of a capable director. ... And it says Book 1? Oh spud.
Only to get more insight into Five Nights at Freddy's.
Only if they are interested in the world of Five Nights at Freddy's. Otherwise no, the book is amateurish.
The performance was good, but the characters fell flat.
This book was only interesting insofar as it added more to the world of the games. As a story on its own, it is bland.
The writing was well done, enough even to stand on its own... but the voice acting was very well done. I was reluctant because horror books can be made silly very easily by the wrong tone. Suzanne definitely delivered the suspense very, very well. Story was lacking a proper ending for me but still, overall a steady 5.
What a fantastic job Scott and Kira did writing relatable and realistic characters to guide the viewer through the world of Five Nights at Freddy's. I was throughly impressed by the quality and pacing of this book. The narrator is good too but it's the story that really drives this home. Five Nights at Freddy's The Silver Eyes is definitely a book worth listening to.
"Mediocre, but fairly enjoyable."
An ok story with some pretty terrible writing (If I hear the word "sheepishly" one more time, I'll start breaking things).
Starts with the overused teaser opening and then skips to "3 days earlier" cliché.
And ends fairly predictably as well, which I won't spoil.
