Grimdark Fantasy Book List

A list of books that scored a 2 or higher on a grimdark poll created on Mark Lawrence's blog. I omitted that books that scored a 1 as they were merely there to provide a baseline for the poll. The book that avg. the highest score was 'Beyond Redemption' with a 4.71.
(Scoring system: 1 - not grimdark; 3 - quite grimdark; 5 - as grimdark as it gets)
