#5 – Shadow and Bone (Netflix)
Based on the books by Leigh Bardugo, this Netflix original series follows the story of Alina Starkov, a cartographer who is revealed to be the savior of her world, Ravka, after a dark wall called the shadow fold splits the world into two nations. While the main plot is your generic “hero’s journey” centering around Alina, the side characters are what really sold me on this show. The crow trio tasked to capture Alina kept me intrigued with the interesting dynamic between the trio and our heroes. The first season is only eight episodes long, but Netflix has guaranteed a second season.
