Steven Erikson's truly Epic Series!
After reading Fantasy for 35 yrs I thought I had my favorites and established hierarchy nailed down tight.
After reading the first two books in the series, my preconceived notions and expectations in ruin, Erikson was (and is) at the top of the new list
I know you said a short series if preferred…but the first 5 books are pretty much self contained…the first 2 represent a story arch that is my personal favorite, with the 2nd book (Deadhouse Gates) having one of the most powerful and moving accounts in Fantasy literature that I've ever read (ie. The Chain of Dogs)…simply blew my mind with it's sheer scope and depth, an experience that will stay with me forever.
So I highly suggest reading the first 2 books, at least
Gardens of the Moon
