This April Netflix will add to its catalog Shadow and bone, a new original series on the platform created by Eric Heisserer (Desperate Hours: Countdown), which is based on the famous trilogy of youth novels by Leigh Bardugo and whose first season will mix Bardugo’s first and second books.
The series takes place in a war-torn world threatened by the Shadow Fold expansion, a dark world full of monsters. But hope seems to resurface when soldier and orphan Alina Starkov discovers an extraordinary power that could hold the key to saving her country.
Training as part of an elite army of magical soldiers known as Grisha, Alina struggles to hone her powers. But while training, the young woman discovers that allies and enemies can be the same in this world where nothing is what it seems, so she will have to be very insightful to know who her allies and who her enemies really are.
