    Have you tried the Stormlight Archives by Brandon Sanderson? There are 2 books in the series at the moment, but the first is split into 2 parts so technically there are 3 books. Sanderson also is the guy who completed the Wheel of Time series so you should enjoy his writing style.

    The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss is a brilliant book, easily one of the best fantasy books I've ever read, if not the best. Again, only the first two books have been released but it's worth it.

    The Prince of Thorns series is pretty merciless.

    The Gentleman Bastards are a great fantasy series but might not be what you're after.

    The Black Company is also decent series but I found it a bit similar to the Malazan novels so you might not like it.

    Otherwise there are the classics like Lord of the Rings but they aren't dark really.

    Hope this helps a bit.
