Shadow and Bone is a series created by Eric Heisserer starring Freddy Carter, Jessie Mei Li and Archie Renaux. It is based on the novel by Leigh Bardugo.
Here comes the second part of this adventure that is all fantasy which, above all, knows how to build new worlds and structure a whole new mythology through strong characters, with history and a very elaborate story to tell.
Specially created for young people, I warn you.
About the Series
Shadow and Bone has been called, and not without good reason, the direct heir to Game of Thrones, and it’s understandable why, and, bridging the gap, has much in common with it in terms of intensity and constant narrative changes.
It has many virtues, but also its flaws, and it is focused on that Young-adult audience with stories which, at times, don’t really appeal to us “grown-ups”.
However, it has that fierce force of youth and that intensity that make it terribly enjoyable and addictive.
It is worth diving into this new world of fantasy and fiction around The Shadow.
