The Shadow Fold, also known as "the Unsea" or simply the Fold, is a swath of darkness that suddenly appeared one day.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The Shadow Fold is a section of nearly impenetrable darkness that grows every year and contains volcra among other unnamed horrors. The Shadow Fold cuts directly across the Vy, a wide road that once stretched across the land connecting Os Alta to the port cities on Ravka's western coast. On maps, the Shadow Fold is shown as a long, narrow lake, a stain, and sometimes just a shapeless cloud.

History[edit | edit source]

Shadow and Bone[edit | edit source]

The Shadow Fold is first mentioned when Alina Starkov and Malyen Oretsev have to go through it with their regiment.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • People who need to travel across the Shadow Fold, or Unsea, use a skiff, a ship-like transport that sails across the sand.
  • The Fold was created by The Darkling.
