* ''Literature/ADeadlyPresence'': DownerEnding connects with BittersweetEnding; The two main heroes live HappilyEverAfter and the leopard will be transported to a zoo instead of being killed, but humanity still doesn't care about Nature and continues to destroy it. A very sad story when you see it in this perspective.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'' aren't the happiest books in the world, but book 11 ends on a really depressing note. Sure, they found the traitor on the Council, but the whole thing was a set up to get the Black Council's guy on the Senior Council. Morgan, who was a JerkAss but a completely loyal one, is dead. Anastasia Luccio, the woman Harry has been dating, turns out to have been [[MindControl mentally coerced]] by the spy into the relationship in order to keep an eye on Harry. And Harry's half-brother, Thomas, has given into his vampire side after being tortured by the skin-walker and fed humans by it, and has returned to the White Court.

* ''Literature/TheSorcererOfTheWildeeps'': The book ends with what looks like an AmbiguousEnding, but upon closer inspection it's heavily implied that Isa dies at the hands of the second jukiere because he is, for a split second, distracted by Demane arriving at the scene, and [[TheMedic Demane]] is unable to heal him. So Demane has to stay back at the Wildeeps until he has tracked down and killed the remaining jukiere, possibly also dying himself in the process, as the first, older jukiere already took almost all he had to kill. And he has to deal with feeling responsible for his lover's death.

** ''Thomas'': The evil Mother Lotus puts Thomas into a trance, causing him to throw his best friend Woodget (who cannot swim) into the ocean. When Thomas awakens from the trance, he realises what he has done and is filled with remorse. In the epilogue, it is revealed that Woodget was rescued by the siren Zenna whose song gave him amnesia.
