Clint and Corbin are having a weird day. Best friends for life, things are getting a little strange around their town, and at school.

Requiem, Changing Times by R. J. Parker is the first book in the series that revolves around two worlds, whose fate depends on Clint Holden. The story starts when someone plants a bomb at different locations. Then it switches to another world of magic. They were given a task to bring something precious within a week and a portal brought them to the present-day world.

Imagine that you're going to school with your best friend, and suddenly from nowhere a stranger attack you. You run to save your
Chaos. Adventures often start with chaos and that is exactly how REQUIEM CHANGING TIMES started for me, a little chaotic and I was just a little lost until suddenly, we are taken to the past and we get “the rest of the story,” which is definitely a younger reader’s dream! Fantasy, action, and strange beings from another dimension must depend on young Clint and his buddy, Corbin to save the day alongside two warriors, Banks and O’Neil, their otherworldly “counterparts.”

This book was so much fun to read. Requiem, Changing Times is like a mystery novel set-up in a fantasy world meant for Young Adult readers or even younger readers. Throughout the book I was trying to figure out what The Requiem was in the back of my mind while not caring about it at all as so much kept happening. Different creatures kept coming into the lives of Clint Holden, a seventh grader who has plenty of things on his plate already especially the class with scary Mrs Christenson.

This was a very interesting title! I was hooked from the very first page and I have to say that this blend of science fiction and mystery was wonderful!! It was full of family drama, humor, and more. I felt the book come alive while I read the story. The author did a great job with the opening of the book as well as how things were dangerous and how it all came together.

This is one really intense story, from the cover you think your getting a fantasy but once you start reading you realize your

The Review

The author does a brilliant job of blending several genres together in a cohesive way. A fusion of fantasy and horror with some elements of sci-fi, mystery and suspense in the YA genre umbrella so to speak make this novel really shine brightly.

Fans will get a fantastic cast of characters to root for and stand behind, not least of all protagonist Clint, a young boy suffering from a profound loss and getting into trouble at school and with his new family unit when he is suddenly thrust

Instead of transporting humans into the world of strange creatures, Requiem, Changing Times by R. J. Parker brings them into our world -- more precisely, into the world of Clint Holden, his family, his best friend, Corbin, and the whole city. For the seventh-grader Clint, the list of problems consisted of quite a few issues: a scary teacher (Mrs. Christenson), his reluctance to accept his step-father as his father, and his inability to speak normally in front of his crush (Melanie). But, when an ...more

What Made Me Read It I was sent a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. The synopsis sent by the author sounded interesting: a normal 7th grader just starting junior high who suddenly finds himself in the middle of a conflict between magical beings, while trying to keep the appearance that things are normal to everyone around him.

The Plot Clint Holden is just a normal 7th grader at Holbrook school, getting in trouble with his best friend Corbin and with an uncanny inability to speak

This is an interesting story and I enjoyed reading it. It's a fantasy book in a series that revolves around two worlds. There are various supernatural creatures and it's written in a way that feels like a real adventure. That said, there are two things I struggled with; the pacing was a little slower than what I prefer and secondly, the dialogue. I do understand that it's written in a way to stay true to the accent of the character but I really struggled with this. I kept reading it wrong and ...more
