Good but could be better

KNIGHTLEY ACADEMY shares some similarities with HARRY POTTER (and the author herself has even said she was inspired by the series) so some readers may not like it. Those looking for a familiar series will enjoy this one. Set in a alternate (but similar) world, Henry, an oprhan, is allowed to take a test to enter the Knightley Academy to study to be a knight (can be police office, doctor, or other-it depends on their talents) The students face trouble with the Norlands and will have to unite to fight them (which will happen in the sequels). The book is fun and entertaining. The characters are nice to read about and there is enough action to keep the plot interesting. It's an okay series-I just hope that the sequels won't be too similar to the HARRY POTTER and they'll be able to stand on their own.
