There was one series... I can't remember what it was now. Maybe it will come to me. 

Here's a random factoid from my searches for agents over the years: they all say, "Do NOT tell me you have the next Harry Potter. Just don't. I don't want to hear it." Maybe that has something to do with the wizarding series shortage?

I'm thinking of Percy Jackson, which might not have exactly been a wizarding series, but... come on.

Ooh, yeah, Percy Jackson!! Yeah, it definitely counts!! 

That wasn't what I was thinking of, though... Hmm.... I should try to remember... I can't recall, but I think it failed. It was sort of a bland imitation with no real unique take. Too diminutive!! (Ooh, that's the first time I've used that word since I finally looked it up in the dictionary!!) 

Oh! Finally. An Internet search yielded results. It's the Charlie Bone books.
