The Twisted Ones by Scott Cawthon is a gripping horror novel that follows the story of Charlotte, the daughter of the protagonist from the previous book, The Silver Eyes. After inheriting her late father's estate, she reluctantly returns to her childhood town, haunted by memories of terrifying animatronic creatures from her father's past. Joined by her friends, she embarks on a chilling adventure, uncovering a series of disturbing secrets that connect to the animatronics' twisted origins. As they dive deeper into the mystery, the group must confront their worst fears and face the evil forces lurking within the shadows. With intense suspense and shocking revelations, The Twisted Ones is a very good book that is very intense and will scare you a couple of times. 

One of the most compelling aspects of the book is its ability to immerse readers in a world filled with dark secrets and unsettling animatronic creatures. The author skillfully builds tension and creates a sense of unease, keeping readers on the edge of their seats throughout the story. It also is unique, because we have always heard of monsters, such as clowns or spiders. However, animatronics we usually find fun in our lives at arcades are the antagonists here. So, it is a unique book. Personally, I wasn’t very disappointed in the book. I like how the series connects to each book and there aren’t that many new characters like R.L Stine’s books where in every book there are new characters. I would wholeheartedly recommend The Twisted Ones to fans of horror and suspense. If you enjoyed the previous works of Scott Cawthon or have a fondness for the Five Nights at Freddy's (FNAF) franchise, you must read this book. Additionally, anyone who appreciates a well-crafted blend of mystery, suspense, and horror will find themselves interested in this chilling book. I would also like to recommend you reading it now, as the new FNAF movie is soon to come out.  It will refresh you on the animatronic names and all the characters. Overall, I give this book a four out of five.
