    In the book Alina was absolutely terrified to go into the fall because she had a bad feeling that something would happen. And she was right on the money she was so terrified that she wouldn't even get on the ship it took Mal to reassure her that everything was fine. She was so God damn terrified of the fold in fact that she was almost willing to shoot her own foot and the foot of male to keep him from going too she didn't burn the maps and just quickly volunteered to get on to the sand skiff she was absolutely terrified and she wanted to get far away from the fold as possible

    The crows are actually the one that keeps me from watching the show(which i thought is boring, confusing and cliche) And now im reading six of crows 🧍‍♀️

    The show is good but it was nothing extraordinary. I have read both shadow and bones book and six of crows to get an idea about the characters before starting the show. They actually cut some good scenes and dialogues from S&B. Except for ben barnes playing darkling and making Mal tolerable I would not give any credits to the script writers. If you are impressed with the six of crow characters then I would say this is very half-assed version of the crows because the actual six of crows is far superior than the S&B trilogy and the show. The fact that they are written by the same author is unimaginable. If you get to read the books you will know what I mean. I understand why they introduced them now but I wished they would have introduced them properly. The actors did a pretty good job but did not quite hit the mark because of the script.

  • jLachelle3

    I like the show, but everything happened in a span of 8 episodes. Her training took like one episode lol. Also, they were building this chemistry between her and the general, only for it to fizzle out real quickly. The chemistry she has with him is more interesting/ stronger in my opinion then with the second male lead Mal, I wish they would have kept their relationship going a little longer. The Alina can sometimes be annoying, and her relationship with Mal is a bore, but overall I like the show

  • Bloodysugar

    Watched it after having seen this review, well... there's lot of significant but very few signified, which means superficial. It is balanced though : it's equally as good looking as hollow. It's not bad though, it's well done, well played (mostly), it has a visual identity, but it's dumb, and so very predictable.

    I can just imagine these actors just kinda, "Ah, I saw what you did.... hi." Side note, though I know nothing about Alex's interaction with the dude from iZombie, I just gotta say the cast on that show seems pretty fun (there's a bunch of clips of them all just hanging out, joking and singing. Really fun to watch).

    The bits with Alina and Mal felt really annoyingly stereotypical ya, but the parts with the crows was awesome, Mr Jesper Fahey is even better in live action and Kaz is more intriguing without the internal perspective.

  • 19Biohazard88

    Compared to the books, this show was so woke and political.

    I accidentally binged this on 1.5x speed yesterday. Actually suspenseful, funny, and interesting. Was fully expecting it to be people standing around in period pieces, dramatically telling each other their backstories. Instead, I've got three different stories interweaving, intertwining and colliding. Roman Torchwick is in this, too. So, that sold me. Holy shit! And any bodice-ripper bad boy and jealous, clingy good boy characteristics from the book were scrubbed clean until you had a villain who asks for consent and a good boy who shows genuine support to the heroine. Holy shit! You even have actually interesting politics, with a world where it's understandable how and why the wizards are persecuted and the villain has a point in not trusting normal humans. Holy shit?! He's not just a mage supremacist who's just foaming-at-the-mouth racist?! AND, get this, a heroine who has an informed opinion on the politics of her world because she's dealt with racism and classism her whole life, so when magical discrimination is thrown on that, she's able to say with conviction that being persecuted doesn't give you a free pass to show your ass. HOLY SHIT!!!! I only slept 3 hours last night, but it was worth it.

    Spoiler with this comment!!! Honestly really enjoying it so far, but I can't stand Alina, shes constantly making selfish idiotic decisions that affects others, or you know if she had gotten tested as a kid, then the fold probably would have been dealt with or what ever is gonna happen with long before the show takes place...she hates the fold and wants it gone but refuses to learn to work on her wtf...

    I haven’t read the books but I don’t read YA in general and I gotta say the storyline with Kaz and his Crow Crew were so much interesting than Alina Sun Summoner storyline lol. I also enjoyed Nina and Matthias storyline so much.

    Me and my family watched it and thought it was good. It was slow at first but paid off at the end. Our favorite part was the merry band of thieves, but we thought that the love triangle between Eliana, Mal and the shadow guy was kind of by the numbers and a little cringy. Eliana was suppose to be this strong, independent, savior of the world, but all she cares about is Mal/shadow guy, keeps getting saved, and doesn’t do anything that doesn’t involve the buy she likes. It was still good though.
