Based on the bestselling horror video game series, Five Nights at Freddy's follows a young woman named Charlotte, who reunites with her childhood friends on the anniversary of the tragedy that ripped their town apart.
It’s been exactly ten years since the murders at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, and Charlotte, who goes by the name Charlie, has spent the last ten years trying to forget. Her father had owned Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, and had built its four adult-sized animatronic animals.
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 used to be: the four mascots that delighted and entertained them as children have changed. The animatronic animals have a dark secret, and a murderous agenda.

Is the book canon?
I wanted to talk about this a little bit to put everyone's minds at ease.
I've gotten a lot of emails (even angry ones) complaining that the book doesn't match up with one or more of the games.
Even some of the reviews on Amazon chastise the book for not matching the games.
Something that I should have explained very early on is that the book is NOT intended to solve anything.
It's not intended to be a guide for the games, or to fill in gaps.
The games are what they are, and as I stated before, that story is finished.
Something that I said in one of the forum threads about this,
is that sometimes the lore of something can become so crowded that you can't tell an original story anymore.
The games and the books should be considered to be separate continuities, even if they do share many familiar elements.
So yes, the book is canon, just as the games are.
That doesn't mean that they are intended to fit together like two puzzle pieces.
I would actually ask anyone wanting to read the book, even if you are a devout fan of the games,
to read the book for the sake of enjoying the book, and don't try to "solve" anything.
The book is a re-imagining of the Five Nights at Freddy's story, and if you go into it with that mindset, I think you will really enjoy it.
