The Plot of Shadow and Bone Season 2:
While Alina’s journey is still comparable to that of the books, the Netflix series has already deviated from the original books’ plots in several ways.
Alina, Mal, and The Darkling’s stories are anticipated to be based on the events in the second book in the series, Seige and Storm, in Shadow and Bone Season 2.
Alina and Mal attempt to lead normal lives in the book, but having to conceal her powers becomes too oppressive, especially as The Darkling keeps tracking them and gaining strength.
In order to try to prevent the Grisha General from acquiring more authority, it also exposes Alina to a privateer by the name of Sturmhond.
In season 2 more action sequences will be there in between The Darkling and Alina for sure. It’s worth wait and seeing what Eric Heisserrer (writer of the show) has in store for the future of Shadow and Bones.
