Top 25 Best Gritty Fantasy Books | #1 Guide to the best fantasy books, games, movies, and more!Fantasy books can transport us to bright, wondrous worlds filled with magic and heroism, where heroes always survive unscathed, and the villains are cartoonish. This list is not about those books, but rather the fantasy of shattered noses, splintered lances, hacked-off arms and disfiguring burns. People trying to cut each other with swords is bound to get messy, and the following books are the fantasy novels which best display that, while telling a kick-ass story at the same time. In these books, violence has consequences, people die and the world is bleak. We're currently living in a golden-age of gritty fantasy, with more and more being released every year, so narrowing it down to twenty-five was a daunting task.

Preferably weird, squicky sex. Shadowguard , Dec 28, Delilah Packet likes this.
