I dunno about better, but the AoS one is pretty dark... opens on a kid, of some vague pre-teen age, being worked to death by Darkoath barbarians excavating a Realmgate, who watches her mother die in slavery... but then I haven't read the Harry Potter series (or seen the movies) and I'm told those are pretty dark, so y'know... kids these days...
