Based on Leigh Bardugo’s best-selling Shadow and Bone and Six of Crows fantasy novels, the promise of a Netflix adaptation has been stirring excitement in the YA book community since its initial announcement at the beginning of the year.

I am excited to see a diverse group of actors and actresses ready to bring one of my favorite book series to life. Although the entire cast has not been revealed, we can expect great things from the upcoming adaptation.
