Netflix’s Shadow and Bone brings diversity and maturity to young adult fantasy book series – ABC News


Winter has come and gone — get ready to “enter the fold” as Netflix attempts to capture some of the fantasy fan magic of Game of Thrones with the release of its new series Shadow and Bone.

The show is based on author Leigh Bardugo’s worldwide bestselling Grishaverse novels, which have sold more than 2.5 million English copies worldwide and been translated into 38 languages.

The young adult novels are beloved for their witty characters, high-stakes plotlines and rich worldbuilding.

Shadow and Bone will be released in Australia on Netflix on Friday, April 23 at 5:00pm AEST.

What is Shadow and Bone about?

Shadow and Bone centres around Alina Starkov, a soldier in the war-torn kingdom of Ravka who discovers she has magical abilities.

Ravka, which is inspired by Tsar Russia in the early 1800s, has been torn in two by the physical embodiment of darkness called the Shadow Fold.

Events are set into motion when Alina, played by Jessie Mei Li, and her best friend Mal are sent into the fold.

The world in which Shadow and Bone is set in is known as the Grishaverse, named after its magic users, the Grisha.

Grisha leader General Kirigan, played by Ben Barnes, has the power to manipulate shadow and darkness.

The Netflix series also features characters from Six of Crows, a book much later in the series.

Bardugo requested the TV series reflect greater diversity than her books, resulting in Alina becoming half-Shu, the Asia-inspired land that Ravka is at war with.

How many episodes are there?

There are eight episodes in the first season of Shadow and Bone, each up to an hour long, and they’re all being released on April 23.

The show is a Netflix production from 21 Laps Entertainment — the makers behind horror series Stranger Things, as well as the Night at the Museum film franchise and Oscar-nominated sci-fi drama Arrival.

The screenplay was written by Eric Heisserer, who wrote the 2018 Netflix horror thriller Bird Box, which spawned the dangerous internet craze #birdboxchallenge.

Most of the show’s filming took place around Budapest in Hungary just before the pandemic.

Is Shadow and Bone for adults?

The Shadow and Bone book trilogy is young adult fantasy that is generally recommended for ages 12 and up.

Netflix describes the show as “ominous” and includes it in the genres of fantasy and teen.

The teen genre covers shows about being a teenager rather than who is recommended to watch it — this includes shows like Gossip Girl, Stranger Things and 13 Reasons Why.

Shadow and Bone has not yet been rated by the Australian Classification Board.

However, it only appears on Netflix accounts with at least an MA15+ rating, which is classified as not suitable for ages 14 and under.

What is the Shadow and Bone reading order?

The Grishaverse is covered in three series: The Book of Shadows trilogy, the Six of Crows duology, and the King of Scars duology.

If you would prefer to read the books before watching the Netflix show, or if you can’t wait for another season, here’s where to start:
