Add "Shadow and Bone" to the long list of efforts to establish new fantasy series in the post-"Game of Thrones" era, in this case with a fairly generic tale of a war-riven world and a young woman who learns she has spectacular powers and an epic destiny. As constructed it makes for a moderately watchable binge once you've committed, but no great loss if you don't.

(CNN)Add "Shadow and Bone" to the long list of efforts to establish new fantasy series in the post-"Game of Thrones" era, in this case with a fairly generic tale of a war-riven world and a young woman who learns she has spectacular powers and an epic destiny.

Again drawing from a literary property -- in this case, Leigh Bardugo's young-adult Grishaverse novels -- the series joins a Netflix "you might also like" shelf already occupied by Y. A. titles as well as pretenders to the "Thrones," joining the magic-infused worlds of "The Witcher" and "Cursed. "

Featuring a mostly fresh-faced cast, the story features Jessie Mei Li as Alina Starkov, a young, orphaned soldier who discovers her ability to cast a dazzling light, which could be the key to overcoming the Shadow Fold, an area blanketed in darkness and populated by slavering monsters.
