"What really happened to Charlie? It's the question that John can't seem to shake, along with the nightmares of Charlie's seeming death and miraculous reappearance. John just wants to forget the whole terrifying saga of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, but the past isn't so easily buried. Meanwhile, there's a new animatronic pizzeria opening in Hurricane, along with a new rash of kidnappings that feel all too familiar. Bound together by their childhood loss, John reluctantly teams up with Jessica, Marla, and Carlton to solve the case and find the missing children. Along the way, they'll unravel the twisted mystery of what really happened to Charlie, and the haunting legacy of her father's creations."--Page 4 of cover.

The Fourth Closet is a fiction book written by Scott Cawthon and Kira Breed-Wrisley. It is the third, and apparently final, book in the Five Nights At Freddy's trilogy, based off of the games. It's worth noting that I have read the previous two books and am going to not be comparing to the games, as the author stated that they are separate. The story picks up six months after the previous novel, in which John witnesses Charlie die in a spring lock animatronic suit, only to return perfectly okay with no explanation. John, logically, doesn't believe that this is the real Charlie, despite the rest of the characters being perfectly fine with it. Soon, more child kidnappings are happening in the small town that seem connected to the opening of the new animatronic pizzeria. John, Jessica, Marla, and Carlton all team up again to try to get to the bottom of this third chain of kidnappings.

Let's get straight to the point – the story, and how it is handled, is absurdly bad. Each installment in the series gets more and more convoluted and unbelievable that it genuinely gets funny at some points. It's of my opinion that if a book is going to try to be mysterious and deliver huge twists and plot reveals, then they should stand out and at least make SOME sense. The twists should feel shocking and satisfying, but instead I'm left re-reading paragraphs trying to understand what just happened. And of course, I haven't even mentioned the huge inconsistencies and plot holes throughout the books. Some of the concepts in this book are so insane that they cross the threshold of interesting and go straight into stupidity, like sound discs that "overload the brain" into making objects look, sound, and even FEEL different. And did I mention that these books take place in the early 80's? The Fourth Closet follows the exact same structure as the previous two – kidnappings happen, main characters ALMOST die, everyone groups up and goes into a pizzeria with a murderer and split up, then they "defeat" him.

So, is there any good in this book? Some. It's fairly well written, the characters are okay, and in a way it can be "so bad it's good". I'd recommend this book mainly to fans of the games and teenagers looking for a time killer. For all my reasons, I'm giving the book a 2.5/5, and remember – this is just my opinion. Hope I've been of help!
