Adaptation of Shadow and Bone 2
Shadow and Bone series is taken from Israeli American author Leigh Bardugo ‘s novel of the same name. The series itself is not solely based on one book though. It combines other novels of the series — Siege & Storm and Ruin and Rise. Shadow and Bone is the first book of this trilogy.
Plot of Shadow and Bone 2
The story is set in Ravik which seems a place very close to where modern-day Russia is situated. Centuries back, a Grisha(someone with the ability to manipulate natural elements, a kind of controller of nature) while failing to contain his extreme power ended up creating a perpetually black and clouded region, called The Fold.
This huge strip of barren land almost separated Ravak in two parts, both almost detached from each other and the seas.
The Fold is dominated by deadly Volcras.
The only way this fold could be destroyed was by a Sun Summoner.
Back to present
Alina Starkov and Malyn Orestev are two orphaned children who became best friends quickly. When Grisha examiners came, Alina’s power was not caught and Mal was not tested as he was injured. At present Alina, who is ordinary and would probably like to remain so, turns out to be the chosen one. She turns out to be the Light Summoner / Sun Summoner who is supposed to destroy the dark Fold. The moment Alina’s Grisha powers are discovered she becomes an immediate threat to many.
Since childhood, Alina has always had a vision of a big white stag. When she meets it, in reality, she forms an instant bond with it, instead of killing it. Without Alina realizing it, the stag chooses her as the holder of power and enhances what she already has.
The Promise of the Darkling
The Darkling is a descendant of the first and most hated heretic, Merzov. He is the summoner of Darkness, an intensely powerful being. He takes a special interest in Alina. He tells her of his plan to destroy the Fold. But he cannot do so alone but needs Alina’s help. Alina’s faith in people and the Darkling’s mysterious ways and kind words were enough to make Alina dream of a better future.
Promises are made to be broken
The Darkling takes Alina to his palace where his mother trains him. She is the one who tells Alina the truth about her son. She tells her he is the descendant of Illya Morozova, the first black heretic. He plans to harness Alina’s power to satisfy his sinister desires. A heartbroken Alina runs away.
