    Default Berserk / Freesia like books?

    Hey I was wondering if anybody here knew about books that have the same essence as any of those 2 mangas, not the fantasy or the futuristic setting, but the darkness/gray mood that overall cover both of these series.
    Ps. sorry about the english!

    The World Is Mine. Try to percevere past the first volume if you can.

    I think you'd also like Dorohedoro.

    George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Fire & Ice" series. Dark, dystopic, complex political intrigue fantasy novels. Good guys get killed, incest looms large, no one is as they appear to be, friends and allies betray each other, murder, treason, a world torn apart by war, and future threats lurking beyond the horizon.

    Manga Genre Focus: Romance, Comedy, Slice-of-life. Primarily shounen, then seinen and shoujo.

    Glen Cook's the Black Company... Glen Cook's The Dread Empire series... ... About anything by Glen Cook that is fantasy and not part of his Garrett P.I. series XD

    I wouldn't really call R.R. Martin's stuff grey/bleak... umm

    Piers Anthony's incarnations of immortality, specifically Death and Evil.

    Lois McMaster Bujold's "The Curse Of Chalion"

    Hum... Uhhh. Bah. I don't have my books here with me...

    Any of Michael Moorcock's Elric series...

    Pretty much anything by Raymond E. Feist...

    Terry Goodkind's the Sword of Truth series... Sort of.

    Crud, the only others I can think of are sci-fi, not fantasy... will recommend those too if you ask I guess. Again, don't have my collection nearby...

    What about Orwell's 1984? Does that count?
