The Silver Eyes
Filled with mystery and horror, “The Silver Eyes” is written by Kira Breed-Wrisley and game developer, Scott Cawthon. The book is based off of the horror game series, “Five Nights at Freddy’s”. The main characters Charlie, John, Jessica, Lamar, Carlton, and Marla, have shared a horrible experience at “Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria.” “Freddy” is similar to the gigantic dancing and singing rat “Chucky Cheese”.While they enjoyed a show performed by the animatronic Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy, a murderer snuck in and kidnapped a child named Michael. The murderer was able to get away with this, because everyone blamed it on Charlie’s father, Henry. The police discovered that it was a murder, but were never able to find the body of Michael. Ten years after the murders, the childhood friends reunite on the anniversary of the murders, in the town of Hurricane. The friends come together to investigate the old pizzeria. The animatronics are able to move around during the night, and they try to kill whoever is in the building at that time. Charlie and her friends look around the pizzeria to find the animatronics coming to life and trying to kill them all. They try to solv
e the mysteries of the murders and who the killer was, but instead find themselves trying to survive the night with all of the animatronics.
The owner and creator of the restaurant was Charlie’s father, giving Charlie insight into many secrets but not all of them. “The Silver Eyes” was a book full of mysteries and was told in third person point of view. I thought the story was interesting and was suspenseful. As I read the story, I grew attached to some of the characters and I was beginning to think that the book wouldn’t be creepy at all. Although I was wrong about that , the story was filled with some moments of delight. But was mostly is was filled with people being injured or possibly worse. This is not a book for the squeamish. I would recommend this book to people who enjoy mystery and horror stories. While I was reading, I found that I really enjoyed the plot and if a second book were to come out, I would read it.
