I don't find them depressing at all. Her work is as realistic, in its own
way, as Cecilia Holland's historical fiction. *De gustibus non disputandem
est*, or as we used to say down south "they ain't no tellin' taste."

Stewart, if you want more in the vein of her Paladin, you could do worse
than the Fortress in the Eye of Time fantasy series, or for her science
fiction the (very much a parallel to The Paladin) Cuckoo's Egg.
