TV Review: Shadow and Bone S2 (2023) (Fantasy)

Shadow and Bone S2
8 episodes

Dark forces conspire against orphan mapmaker Alina Starkov when she unleashes an extraordinary power that could change the fate of her war-torn world. (Synopsis)

The second season of Shadow and Bone was mostly good. As with season 1, there were additions and changes from the books, but I thought they all worked well for the TV version. The one thing that bugged me were the constant "emotional talk" scenes between Alina and Mal. There were too many of them and they were dull. My concentration often lapsed during those moments and they slowed the pacing of the show overall. But the effects looked good and things ended with excellent set-up to continue the Six of Crows storyline and to commence the King of Scars one if the show gets renewed for season 3. I am giving 4.5 stars.
