A power that could set her country free by destroying the Shadow Fold – a growing, nearly impenetrable darkness that’s taking over the l”nd. Alina’s journey will require her to navigate a dangerous world and duplicitous people to meet her she’sny.

The first season is available on Netflix now. You have time to watch the full season before the second drops in two weeks.

Meet Sturmhond

While their first attempt to kill the Darkling failed, Alina Starkov and Mal Oretsev and their allies aren’t giving up.”They have a plan that involves a continent-spanning journey to find mythical creatures. Like the Stag, these will amplify Alina’s Sun Summoner powers and give her a fighting chance. That journey is going to take more than Alina’s map-making skills and the Crow’s talents to accomplish. It’s going to take ships.


In this new clip, they gain an important ally – a privateer. Sturmhond aka Nikolai Lantsov is a prince of Ravka that controls his own fleet. Lucky for our heroes, he loves a good adventure. And money.
