Think Imperial Russia, not Medieval England, repeating rifles instead of broadswords. It's a story about the people who have been told how much they don't matter proving how much they do.

So kinda sorta more Day/Night/Twilight Watch than GoT.  Only problem being they worked as they had the standard "zero farks given" Russian twist that I feel Netflix will try but fail horribly.

Sounds like Season 3 is already canceled.

I've read the books, and Bardugo set out to make it feel more like a 19th century civilization dealing with magic, instead of ye olde knights and wizards.  There's an established merchant class, reliable overseas trading, a monarchy that doesn't wield absolute power, a "modern" military that's somewhere between Napoleonic and say, the American Civil War level of tech, etc.

The problem is that they're combining two different series that just happen to share one world, but really have very little overlap, and are fairly distinct in tone, as well.  The Six of Crows pair of books are a fantasy heist novel in book one and the fallout from the fantasy heist in book two.  The Shadow and Bone trilogy is a civil war/royal succession story.  I'm worried how well they're actually going to mesh.
