First book is complete, second one is under reconstruction, but technically complete as well. This series is a combination of High, Epic, Dark Fantasy. The final book is not on R.R, mainly because I am rewriting, and rather just push it out when I get to it again. Queen of Monsters is the same genres, but a much shorter book if that is your thing. The only difference is that Queen of Monsters is a GameLit, Parallel Hearts is more of a natural story to say.
Note, these are not casual reads.

Slife of lifey at first but soon get very dark and gory.
However, if you want dark fantasy, let me point you to Path of Salt. It's not mine, but I found it to be a very interesting story, with a bit of a Dark Soul ambience and theme.
If Xianxia is your thing, give Dreamers of Eternity a read. It's not a satire or comedy about the genre, and more a character-oriented take on the genre where the MC is actually just a normal genius while most of the people around him are actual prodigies.
Fair warning, though. The MC will lose (or at least just barely win) frequently.
Either way, hope no one takes offense to my own plug and hope you find what you're looking for here!
Touch O' Luck is the first volume in the Old Realms series;
it's a very gritty medieval/Ancient Rome Historical Fantasy, wit heavy doses of Grimdark, other times humorous,
with war, political elements and adventure, sharing the spotlight equally.
It is completed at 86k words, and its sequel Lure O' War is ongoing now, already over 25k words.
Second, my own stories may or may not interest you. My stories are linked in my signature.
I am very close to finished with Dishonor. It is not a fantasy story, but I've had a number of people tell me it reads like a fantasy.
Life Without Memory is on hiatus till December while I finish Dishonor, but I do plan to finish it next. It is a dark psychological sci-fan story.
Proxy is a battle-loving, but well-meaning delinquent. In contrast, his best friend Richard is studious and opposed to violence.
One night, while attending a concert together, chaos erupts. In the middle of the performance, the black Grimoire in their possession rips open a portal to another world and drags them inside.
Stranded in a foreign place, they must adapt to survive. Powerful foes lurk around every corner and only together can they persevere. On the planet called Holy Lands, their fate hangs in the balance.
