Sunset is a story where Twilight is actually
Spoiler:
an advanced golem, an intelligent being that can heal mortal wounds easily but starts to go crazy when under tremendous stress.
and when she learns this, she
Spoiler:
attempts to kill Celestia for some reason I won't spoil, but ultimately comes to her senses and preserves her life. IIRC, she gets stuck ruling Equestria until Celestia heals.

I included For Want of a Dawn because it is basically the sequel, it is where
Spoiler:
Twilight gets sucked into an alternate reality where she killed the princesses and took control of Equestria. Her friends have split up and founded different factions, all of whom have their own agendas which includes overthrowing the princess and destroying the other factions.


It includes some of the harsh realities of events like this happening, but I don't think it ever goes in tremendous detail about some of the... Darker results of combat.

Well, I have reading to catch up on.... which I'm clearly not working on, what with finding many many ways to side-track myself from whatever I'm trying to do at the time. Though, I read the spoilers... can't say I'm too interested with Sunset... Dawn sounds much more intriguing though...
