    4.5/5 That was a good read. This time the theme seems to be family relationship and how it influences people and their future. Gumdrop Angel - the story is easy to predict but still it was very well written and it makes you care about the main character, which is never good in Fnaf world since most stories don't end well. I absolutely hated the father in this story, worst kind of person, the mother wasn't really better. Honestly, without any spoilers, the most disturbing thing of the story to me w 4.5/5 That was a good read. This time the theme seems to be family relationship and how it influences people and their future. Gumdrop Angel - the story is easy to predict but still it was very well written and it makes you care about the main character, which is never good in Fnaf world since most stories don't end well. I absolutely hated the father in this story, worst kind of person, the mother wasn't really better. Honestly, without any spoilers, the most disturbing thing of the story to me was the very beginning with the big surprise of the party. What person especially parent looks at this event and think it's normal? (view spoiler)[But the person you should fear most is Dominic. He knows the rules of the pizzeria, he has seen things, the horror of people turning into gummy snacks and then dying and he still works there and seems normal. He is a survivor. It also tells you a lot about teenagers who need money and are desperate enough to work in such places knowing the risks. Capitalism at its best. (hide spoiler)] Sergio's Lucky Day - This was an interesting story. The ending is not easy to predict, which was really nice. Also the last scene and the last line were just on point, love it. The story is slow paced but to me the ending makes up for it. It's also very well written because you understand the character and feel for him but then you end up with so many mixed feelings about him. I really liked how the animatronic was working here, it was very clever and it kept reader on edge. What he found - I really liked this story. If you pay attention to details it's easy to see how it will end but oh boy, the way to the ending was long and very well written. I liked that we get to know the main character as a person first and only after a time we get glimpses of his past and why he is the way he is. I did not expect this particular animatronic to make appearance but it was absolutely awesome and the whole action at the end was so good! It's not easy to write such sequences and it was just so well done I couldn't stop reading. Very good story. (view spoiler)[Also granny, why couldn't you just tell him the future if you always claim to know one. You could have saved your grandson, come on! (hide spoiler)] Each story had strong points. In the first you really feel for the main character and there is new addition to the lore, the second has the most clever use of animatronic and the third has the best horror aspect. As for the story at the end I absolutely love what is happening! So many new things and possibilities! Can't wait for the next issue!

    I enjoyed this volume in general, I really liked the first and the third story – they had that good mix of likable main character and the horror of how Fazbear destroyed their lives. The second one, unfortunately, dragged on for too long – the ending was great but the overall pacing was off.

    This book is a much-needed comeback. The last two were alright, but this one feels so much more like FNAF. The first story has a weird and interesting premise, and even though it’s spoiled right on the front cover, I think it still works. The second is a tad too long, especially since the gore only happens at the end, but I’d say it’s worth it, and the antagonist is one we know and love. The third story is wild.

Maybe a bit more of the antagonist would be good, but this is already their second story, so I’ll take it. The eighth volume is great.

    Ugh. I hate how much I enjoyed this one because every time I think I'm getting bored with this series and don't like a collection, there's a really freaking great one. The body horror in this one is obscenely gross and really, really reminds me of the old 90s animorphs and goosebump series'. Ugh.

The theme seems to be bad luck which can happen to anyone obviously. The first story was honestly sad. Angel had a horrible step dad and a neglectful mom that makes it understandable on why she acts out the way she does. Just wish she hadn't messed with the step sis. The lil sis might be annoying but she didn't seem malicious. The second story dealt with a man that was going through the motions of life. H Well this was body horror to the max.

The lil sis might be annoying but she didn't seem malicious. The second story dealt with a man that was going through the motions of life. He seemed to me a yes man, never voicing his contradictory opinions so as to not cause trouble in any aspect in his life. He finds himself a 'lucky doll' that gives him the confidence boost he needed to go out on his own and be happy. Of course this is a five nights at freddys story so yeah...... The third story was just all bad luck and the ending to it was very interesting. I'm not sure how to explain it without giving things away since everything is used again later on so I won't. The epilogue was interesting. So continued the story of the detective and Jake who's still trapped in the metal body. So I'll eagerly await the next book to see what happens next.

The first story was pretty predictable but for a moment there I thought Dominic was a good guy. Reminded me of one of the stories in the first book of the series where things get better before they get worse. In the second story things are ok, get bad, get better, and end in tragedy. It got hard to focus on the words towards the end but just. WOW. Third story brings about a location called Fazbear Frights which I find funny in a good way.

It’s really cool how over time we learn more about the character and his torments. The short fourth story is another great installation to this story going on in the background. I can’t wait to find out what happens next with Larson and the Stitchewraith. I wonder who the girl is and if she has been in a previous story? Overall, another great addition to the franchise and I’m looking forward to the next one! :)

    This book was honestly one of the better Fazbear Frights books. I like how its main focus was not in creating immediate scares, but creating characters that the readers can relate to. In the previous books I found that sometimes it went straight to horror, but here I am really glad with the pacing and I think that it worked excellently in this book's favor. That being said, I am honestly not a fan of how the word 'curvy' was used to describe most of this book's adult women characters.

All things considered, though this book is going to draw the classic "is this even FNaF" comments for some of it's stories, I recommend this book to any FNaF fan above some of the other Fazbear Frights books.

    4.5 out of 5 stars. So this book was dark. Like, darker than the others in the series. The first story had my skin crawling. The middle story gave me mixed feelings and then ended in horror. The final story had me screaming from the start as soon as the words "Fazbear Frights" were uttered in-universe and a certain hidden room was discovered. Jake and Larson need to team up, I'm worried about them both. If you'd told me 6 years ago that I would still be hooked by this story I wouldn't have believed 4.5 out of 5 stars.

    Very good stories in this book! Although the first one was extremely predictable, it was still enjoyable. The second story was very well-written and brought me from the beginning to the drastic end in a smooth ride. The third story- my favorite- was so great, that although it was one of the longer stories, I found myself reading it in relatively the same amount of time as the other shorter stories. The Stitchwraith follow up begins to expand its branches which I am enjoying a lot. The story is b Very good stories in this book!

    Whew, Cawthon messes with me on this one. The body horror in these three stories, ESPECIALLY the first one, really got to me. Ooof. That one actually creeped me out enough that I had to set the book down and finish it later. Not sure why but Gumdrop Angel REALLY dialed up the creep ick squick factor for me. Still impressed with this series as a whole. Good job, Scott!

    OMG! For the first time while reading this series, I felt bad at the end of all three stories. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, goes well for these adults. The third story was intense, bit of a trigger warning as it does detail Hudson's abuse from his step-father. You can kind of predict the endings to these stories if you pay attention, but it still hits you with details you do not expect. OMG!

    I just love Scott's books, okay. But the first story was kinda predictable. The ending was predictable and in my opinion, kinda boring. I just love Scott's books, okay. But the first story was kinda predictable. The ending was predictable and in my opinion, kinda boring.

    This is the second book in the series we have read. Is it a thing for every main character to be insufferably self-centred and bitter? This book was slightly better than the last one.
