Could the Last Knight Be the Next Fix for Harry Potter Fans?

As a literary blogger, I get a lot of books to review. I just finished a young adult title by Hilari Bell called The Last Knight (the first in a series). I'm wondering if there are any Harry Potter Fans out there who may have read this book as well. Here's the link to the review if you're interested: www.associatedcontent.com/article/360181/could_the_last_knight_be_the_new_fix.html Tell me what you think, even if you disagree.

I read the plot and it is very similar to the spanish classic Don Quixote. It sounds interesting but personally, i would not read a book that is very similar to a classic... i think one reason why Harry Potter is so popular is because it is a world of its own created by JK Rowling...

Interesting perspective. Although, I agree the arrent knight is a concept very similar to Don Quixote and does take place in a fantasy world dominated by the magic of the green and furred gods. I have to concur though, there really isn't anything new under the sun. Good books are just new takes on old literary themes. The success is in the story telling.
