    Is Netflix's 'Shadow and Bone' better than the book? (Shadow and Bone Review)

    Is Netflix's 'Shadow and Bone' better than the book? (Shadow and Bone Review)

    Netflix's adaptation of 'Shadow and Bone' might be one of those rare occasions where the show turned out to be better than the book. *GASP!* We know, we know — it's blasphemy! But we still appreciated many of the changes to the source material, especially when those changes mean more screen time for our favorite Crows.

    In this super-packed episode, we unravel all our feelings about 'Shadow and Bone.'
