One series I’ll always recommend is the Prince Of Nothing series.

It does have some hard magic systems explained, but not to the level of Sanderson. But it has much better characters, mostly all existing in a more gray morality. A well realized world, but with a more philosophical approach to story telling.

Probably my favorite modern fantasy. If it’s still considered modern

A philosophical approach to storytelling is halfway to selling me already.

If you do look into it, please avoid spoilers. The way they handle the main character is different than any fantasy I’ve read. And it’s amazing

I bought it and the first Malazan book. I'm excited to delve into the deep end!
