The Best Fantasy Novels to Read After ‘Shadow and Bone’
Shadow and Bone is one of those shows I binged so fast I kind of keep forgetting I actually watched it? Then it comes up in conversation, and it all comes rushing back like a crazy dream and I can’t stop talking. In other words, the show is def worth a watch if you haven’t had the chance yet. And if you have, check out this fun list from Vulture to fill your fantasy void.
Whether you’re new to fantasy or well-versed in the expansive genre, building out your reading list can seem intimidating without some guidance. Reading all of Bardugo’s Grishaverse books, including the recent Nikolai duology, is a great place to start. But for those who want to keep going, we’ve compiled a guide to the very best books that align with the heart of what makes the Grishaverse so special. So if your favorite part of Shadow and Bone is Alina’s (Jessie Mei Li) journey to embracing her own power, Kaz’s (Freddy Carter) charming caper crew, the alluring edge of the Darkling (Ben Barnes), or the Russia-inspired culture of Ravka, we’re confident there’s at least one book you’ll fall hard for on this list.
