I found my next Harry Potter-like series: The Tethering by Megan O’Russell📚. An orphan gets to know that he is a wizard and goes off to a small private Wizzard boarding school. The first half of the story, I was not yet so convinced about it, as it looked too much like a clone. Though starting with the middle, this changed, and the author introduced some original ideas in her book.

I liked the mentioning of the Lés Miserables musical – without stating the actual show by name. This scene marks the turning point for the characters from easy school life to live in fear and terror.
