The series is based on Leigh Bardugo’s two best selling book series Shadow and Bones and Six of Crows. This new series looks promising to introduce us to a world of magic, romance, and monsters. This series is one of the notable new series on Netflix of the YA genre.
Set in Grishaverse, Shadow and Bones is a story about the world with two magical shrouds of darkness known as the Shadow Fold. Alina Starkov who is a young soldier discovers her hidden powers and can finally unite her divided country but it isn’t that easy.
Magical and political machinations threaten and overwhelm Alina as she struggles to use her powers.
Six of Crows is more about a heist adventure of a gang who are constantly on the hunt for their new job and finally the next big score.
